Established in 1994, Albufeira Health Institute is a reference in dentistry.
Equipped with the best materials, the latest technologies and an international clinical staff of highly qualified dentists, led by Dr Márcia Martins, they believe that excellent medical care and daily dedication to patients is the key to long-standing trust.
Their stellar service and philosophy have been recognised with the national merit award “Best Dental Clinic 2018” by DentalPro and they are the choice of many European patients. Conscious that they need to always be up to date on new procedures and techniques to care for those who on the seek them, they continue to innovate so they can offer patients the very best available in dental treatments.
The latest CBCT technology (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) is a good example. The Planmeca ProMax® 3D is an X-ray unit which allows for 3D imaging of teeth, oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw and neck), and ENT (ears, nose and throat). It’s used for accurate diagnoses and treatment plans that are of particular importance in the field of implantology. It’s fast and safe, and allows the dentist to examine and assess the image almost instantly, without subjecting the patient to high doses of radiation when compared to conventional tomography.
Conscious sedation is another procedure offered at the clinic. By minimally suppressing the level of consciousness, it allows the patient to breathe consciously and autonomously, and to properly respond to physical stimuli and verbal commands, minimising pain, relaxing him and facilitating the dental treatments. Patients undergoing this procedure – that can be used both in adults and in children – see their anxiety levels reduced, maintain total control, and recover quickly, being able to go back to their activities immediately after their treatment.
For those looking to whiten all their teeth in just one hour, without any pain or discomfort, the clinic suggests the Philips Zoom technology. Containing a patented formula which helps protect the enamel and reduce dental sensitivity, this advanced technology uses activation by LED light (Light Emitting Diode) and can only be administered by a specialist in authorised facilities. The results are immediate and may even improve further over time – the structure of the teeth remains unchanged and any previous restoration work will not be affected.
In addition to the clinical practice in various specialties of dentistry, the Albufeira Health Institute also provides training to other dentists, both nationally and internationally.
