Our Technology

We use the most modern and proven dental equipment available. This includes things like digital x-rays for the diagnosis of dental decay and oral diseases. My special interest is endodontic treatment, and we use Cone Beam Computerised Tomography to help visualize the root canals and assess healing and treatment outcomes. We examine and work through an operating microscope, we use LED fibre optic equipment, which enables us to see and work better.

We also use an intra-oral scanner now instead of impression taking for recording your teeth and bite and we are now able to save in a digital format your teeth and your bite, in a super accurate and three-dimensional way. This also allows us to show you the new digital smiles we can create so we can plan and show you the results we can achieve before we start It is very exciting and rewarding.

We use a dedicated dental computer program to prepare and record your dental history and we prepare detailed reports and treatment plan. We use digital clinical photos to communicate and show you before and after photos-as photography is the language of dentistry!

Our instruments are bagged and sterilized in the most sophisticated and modern autoclaves for your protection and are subjected to stringent cleaning and sterilization procedures. All needles and bio- hazardous materials are disposed of in specially designed plastic containers and collected by waste management specialists.

We use the best dental materials available for the art and science required to restore your teeth. We don't use amalgam fillings (which contain toxic mercury) and fill with white composite filling materials. We have "state of the art" root treatment equipment for measuring, shaping, cleaning and filling root canals. We never compromise on quality and use the best possible materials for everything we do.

Of course, the heart of our practice philosophy is- prevention is always better then cure. Our practice objective is to prevent decay and gum disease and hope not to have to do any restorative dentistry at all - but should you need it - we treat with and use the best scientific and evidence based methods and equipment available.
