Technology Advances in Dental Care

We pride ourselves on being up to date on the technological advances in the dental sector. Read about some of the interesting dental technology that we use so make your dental treatments as fast and enjoyable as possible.

CEREC Cad-cam

INSTANT Veneers and crowns with CEREC- beautifully crafted on-site for you – no messy impressions, no waiting for weeks on end, no temporaries.

When you are having trouble with your teeth, one of the worst parts of the dental experience can be making multiple trips to the dentist instead of getting everything done in one trip. CEREC allows you to save time and get better results by taking advantage of advanced technology to restore your teeth with a crown, inlay, or onlay in a SINGLE visit.

CBCT

Our latest investment is a 3D imaging machine

This is best X-ray Technology available as it enables us to take a 3D image of your jaw & teeth. It helps us to see the whole jaw and all your teeth in 3 dimensions which can help in procedures like wisdom teeth extraction, root canal treatments, or implant placements. The 3D X-ray will determine the precise position of impacted wisdom teeth, the quality and quantity of bone available to plan for a dental implant, a correct visualisation of the inside of a tooth to perform root canal treatment and much more.

Digital X-rays

We have been using digital technology for taking Xrays in our practice for many years.

They are an invaluable diagnostic tool in dentistry. While taking digital X- rays, the radiations are much lower as the image is captured on a phosphor plate. The data is very quick to transfer on to a patient’s file on the computer.

Soft Tissue Laser

There are three classes of lasers in use in dentistry:
  • diagn-tic
  • soft tissue, and
  • hard tissue lasers.

We use the soft gum lasers called Diode Lasers. Their main use is tidying up gum margins when doing filling or crown work, but also for sterilising infected and diseased gums.

Laser dentistry offers:
  • Reduced symptoms and healing times
  • More effective sterilisation of root canals
  • Gum surgery
  • Benign tumour removal without sutures
  • Operculectomy for treatment of acutely inflamed gums around the partially impacted wisdom teeth
  • Reduction of a gummy smile by reshaping gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure
  • Crown lengthening

Intraoral Cameras

Seeing is Believing…. They are a great tool that helps us in communicating what we see in your mouth….to you.

The camera looks like a writing pen that, when moved around inside the mouth, allows us to capture detailed, clear video and images of the corroded or tarnished fillings, hairline fractures, bleeding gums, plaque, and several other critical teeth problems in real-time. An intraoral camera does not cause any pain or discomfort and has no side effects. The image is then projected on to the computer screen which can then be used for discussion and helps you to make an informed choice about your tooth treatment.

Invisalign

A Modern Approach To Straight Teeth Without The Traditional Braces

Book in for a free consultation so the dentist can assess which orthodontic option is the best for you.

Invisalign is the new breakthrough technology that straightens your teeth without the hassle of braces to give you the smile you have always wanted.

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you.

Once your dentist has assessed and determined if Invisalign is the right option for you, all you need is a 3D scan of your teeth and dental arches which is accomplished with our 3D digital scanner in few minutes, no messy impressions & your aligners will be done in a few weeks.

There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
