THE LATEST DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY
We use the latest digital dental technology at Avalon Oral Care Centre to ensure that we can give our patients the best possible treatment. Dentistry has come a long way in the past few years and digital equipment, such as intraoral scanners and 3D X-ray equipment, makes it possible for dentists to take much clearer and more accurate images of patients’ teeth. This means we can see clearly what’s happening above and below the gum and therefore diagnose and plan our treatments more effectively. For instance, being able to see high-quality images of the bone and surrounding structures is essential for implant treatment as it ensures that we can place the implant in exactly the right position.
QUICK AND COMFORTABLE TREATMENT
If you have ever had to sit for a conventional impression before – where the dentist inserts a tray of goo into your mouth into which you have to bite and hold still while it sets – you’ll be so glad to know that there is no need to endure that discomfort at Avalon Oral Care Centre. We now use an intraoral scanner – a camera on the end of handpiece – which we pass quickly over your teeth in a matter of seconds and which gives us detailed digital surface images of your teeth and gums. Not only is it quicker and more comfortable than messy, conventional impressions, but it gives us so much more detail to work with. Using digital equipment like this improves our patients’ experience – something which is extremely important to us – and makes us faster and more efficient.
One of the key things we must do as dentists is ensure that when we do need to take an X-ray – to check what’s happening underneath your gums – we expose you to the smallest radiation dose possible. We have both 2D and 3D X-ray capabilities at Avalon Oral Care Centre so we have a wide range of options to choose from to make sure we obtain a sufficiently clear image at the lowest dose. Digital X-ray equipment is very sophisticated these days and is capable of giving us amazing-quality images which makes our treatment much more accurate. Accurate, safe, comfortable and efficient – if you’re looking for a modern dentist in Crawley, look no further than Avalon Oral Care Centre.
