We continuously invest in the very latest dental technology which has transformed our approach to dental care. We are proud to be a fully digital practice and at the forefront of this digital revolution.
Technology in the palm of our hands
TRIOS 3 SHAPE intra oral scanner
The Trios 3 Shape scanner is simply incredible. We no longer have to take impressions!
WATERLASE I PLUS and EPIC 10 lasers
We have invested in this highly sophisticated technology which allows:
and MUCH more!
We have recently invested in a state of the art cone beam CT scanner or CBCT unit.
Dental Cone Beam Tomography is a specialised type of x-ray that provides more information than conventional dental x-rays. This computerised scan uses advanced technology to generate three-dimensional images.
The main advantages include:
- Provides 3-D images of bone and dental structures, soft tissues, nerve canals and pathology which hold far greater information than 2-D x rays
- Allows for greater level of diagnosis and treatment planning.
- Far less radiation dose than conventional CT scanning
CBCT scans are commonly used to:
- Evaluate bone volume and density, positions of teeth in 3-D, jaw joints and pathology
- Provide diagnostics for:
- Accurate placement of implants
- Surgical planning for the removal of impacted wisdom teeth
- 3-D orthodontic evaluation
- Complex root canal diagnosis and treatment
We no longer need to refer to an outside clinic or hospital for CBCT scans saving valuable time and money. The cost of a CBCT dental scan is £125 for a sectional scan and £150 for a full arch scan.
One of most recent additions to the practice is the CJ Optik dental
microscope. The level of magnification allows for superb visualisation
of the entire mouth not just a single tooth which is the case for most
Laser cavity detector
The Diagnodent Wand.
Digital x-ray system
Digital X-Ray system: We use the most up to date digital X-Ray equipment, which means that we can achieve a reduction of up to 90% in radiation. There is also no need for toxic chemicals required for developing as the images appear directly onto the computer screen, which allows clear and in depth analysis.
Intra oral camera and video
Intra Oral Camera and Video: the Sopro 717 and Sopocare intra oral
cameras allows us to take close up digital images of your teeth, which
appear directly on the computer screen. This allows you to see areas
that were never previously visible and gives a greater understanding of
Virtual implant planning
We are now able to plan dental implants on a software package from CT scans. This means that the results are predictable and guides can be made from the planning process to eliminate any guesswork and ensure the best position for the implants.
