How does digital dentistry benefit you over traditional methods?

20th September 2019 | Category: Uncategorised

At The White Bridge Clinic we continue to explore new techniques and technology to ensure you get the best that modern dentistry has to offer. The White Bridge Clinic invests in digital equipment: from digital impressions, digital 2D and 3D radiographs, digital planning and 3D printing, digital anaesthesia and there is more to come.

Clinicians have been working hard to learn these new techniques and feedback from patients has been invaluable. As enthusiastic clinicians, who strive to do the very best dentistry, digital dentistry has exceeded our expectations and we are very proud to be leading the way in modern dentistry in Oxfordshire.

Digital impressions

No one likes the traditional putty or alginate impressions. Digital impressions involve a small camera in the mouth which takes a series of photos (approximately 1500 per jaw). There is no more gagging and furthermore the impression is far more accurate. The digital scan allows precise planning and communication with laboratory technicians and enables tooth designs to be shared with you. Importantly, it is environmentally friendly and a far more hygienic method of sharing your mouth imprints.

Digital Radiographs

Instant radiographs with better clarity. These allow for instant feedback at your appointment and avoid any developmental faults. The 3d X-ray unit (cone beam CT) has been invaluable in achieving accurate diagnosis and in treatment planning, such as implant planning, root canal treatment and complex extractions.

Digital Anaesthesia

The Quicksleeper provides immediate anaesthesia in a far more comfortable method. The teeth to be treated are anaesthetised in one simple injection which provides 360 degree numbness to the tooth with minimal soft tissue numbness. This means no more numb lip and tongue for many of our dental procedures. Further more the anaesthetic only lasts approximately 90 minutes; therefore, often wears of soon after your appointment is completed allowing you to continue your day as normal.

Digital Implants/ 3D Printer

By combining your 3D CT scan with your digital impression, your implant treatment can be planned with precision from the start. By designing the prosthesis first, the implant can be placed in the best position. Furthermore, a surgical guide can be designed and printed in-house to allow your treatment to be done with minimal invasiveness (guided surgery). This means higher quality implant treatment with less recovery time. There is a reason why, in Oxfordshire, The White Bridge Clinic is one of a few clinics that offers a 10-year guarantee on implant treatment.

Digital Smile Design and Orthodontic Planning

Using your digital impression your orthodontic results can be simulated for you with 3D digital images so you know what can be achieved before committing to treatment. This service (clin-check) is offered for free at your orthodontic consultation. Also, if you are interested in a new smile, we can use your facial photo and design your dream smile. This is planned with you before treatment starts or commitment made. Digital software allows us to plan the exact smile you have always wanted and, if you know someone who has the teeth you want, or once had (such as your daughter), their teeth can be scanned and copied into your new smile design.

Evident, Dynamic Navigation Implant Surgery System

A pioneering technique that allows dental implants to be placed with great precision, higher patient comfort and recovery and shorter surgery time. Such equipment has been used for many years, with great success, in brain surgery. The White Bridge Clinic is one of 6 clinics in the United Kingdom offering this fantastic technique.
