I position my camera to the side and I move my mirror a little bit during a treatment, which gives me a better feeling of the third dimension... The contrast in the camera is really great and you can clearly see if there is any decay left. Moreover, the camera doesn’t show spray water during drilling or when using laser. You can see things better than with your own eyes.
"...THE CAMERA DOESN’T SHOW SPRAY WATER DURING DRILLING OR WHEN USING LASER. YOU CAN SEE THINGS BETTER THAN WITH YOUR OWN EYES."
Right now, I still haven’t found a 3D system that works to a standard I find usable. And personally, all 3D systems I’ve used so far have made me dizzy. I can’t imagine working the whole day using it. I think that good contrast and shadows in your camera are much more important than 3D.
Dr. Bonne knew that what he was doing was quite new and challenging for traditional dental practices. Yet it helped him save his professional career, so he started sharing the idea with other dentists.
I invited my colleagues to my practice a few times and presented my setup to them. It was a lot of fun. Nobody had ever realized that it was possible. It’s clear to see that my body is very relaxed when I work – I don’t get any strains.
And the setup doesn’t force you to use it all the time. I can always switch to looking directly into the patient’s mouth whenever I want. It isn’t as easy when you, for example, use a microscope – you always have to move it out of the way before you can continue.
According to Dr. Bonne, the integration of the dental unit, camera and workflow is the key to the future of dental treatments. And that future, for him, is quite clear – no more bending over in order to look into the patient’s mouth!
