At Complete Dental, it’s extremely important that we are able to provide our patients with the very best technology. All our equipment is meticulously maintained to the very highest levels. Having the latest technology allows our dentist to easily and quickly diagnose any problems, and to plan treatment in the most effective manner possible. Our specialised equipment includes:
Digital X-Rays & In-house OPG
Unlike conventional x-rays, digital dental x-rays emit minimal amounts of radiation so they are extremely safe. They are the quickest way of diagnosing infections and tooth decay, as the images can be viewed immediately on the screen in our surgery.
An orthopantomogram or an OPG, is a specialised or widescreen view of your lower face. It shows all your upper and lower teeth, as well as your jaws and jaw joints. We may suggest you have an OPG in preparation for orthodontic treatment, to provide a general overview of your teeth and bones, if we need to assess your wisdom teeth and for many other reasons that your dentist will be able to explain.
An intraoral camera is extremely useful, taking high resolution images inside your mouth. These can be displayed on our screen, allowing us to explain any problems and potential treatments much more clearly. We use this technology for 3D digital implant planning, as well as the digital design of crowns, bridges, dentures, implant prosthesis and clear aligners.
3D printers allow for tight-fitting crown and endodontic models with a smooth surface that results in crystal-clear thermoformed aligners.
With a continuous, slow and steady rotation, these instruments made of a nickel-titanium alloy are more flexible than the traditional stainless-steel manual files. Activated by a small electric motor, they make the root canal procedure much faster than with conventional files. They are also equipped with a detector that allows the dentist to locate the tip of the root and to avoid perforations.
CEREC One-visit Dentistry
CEREC machine allows us to custom-design and make restorations while you wait. Your tooth is prepared as normal, but instead of having a conventional tray impression, your tooth is scanned with a tiny camera, taking many images each second. These images create a virtual 3D model of your teeth so our dentist can design your crown. Next, it is made by our on-site milling machine from a solid block of pre-shaded porcelain, utilising sophisticated CADCAM technology. After being hand-finished, it is ready to be fitted.
