There's a reason dentists have so much equipment in their surgeries – many potential dental problems are hidden from view. We have invested heavily in the latest assessment and treatment technologies so we can provide a world-class service without sending you off to someone else.
We have all the latest diagnostic equipment located on-site. Our facilities include:
The Intra-oral camera allows your Gentle Dental Care dentist to see each tooth magnified in colour on a computer screen. Diagnosis is much simpler and the camera allows us to show you clearly what may be wrong. A small, sterilised camera is moved around inside your mouth providing a tooth-by-tooth video examination. We can then freeze and store the picture for a closer look. Still images may be kept for our records for future reference.
Dental x-rays show up your teeth, bones and surrounding soft tissues. X-rays can show tooth decay, hidden dental structures and bone loss that may not be visible during a visual examination.
The OPG is a special method for obtaining radiographs of the teeth-bearing jaws, both upper and lower. This specially constructed machine rotates around the jawbones giving us an extremely good indication of their structure.
This is enormously useful in diagnosing and treating a wide-variety of conditions such as dental trauma, infections, tumours and congenital abnormalities. It is also valuable for pre-implant evaluation.
A CEPH is an x-ray of the face obtained so that accurate measurements can be performed. Any work requiring prosthetics needs highly accurate measurements to ensure precision fitting.
Treatment is all about managing your dental health over the long-term – not just checking for cavities and providing a clean and polish. If you need it, you have access to leading-edge laser treatments, orthodontic treatment and the finest cosmetic, whitening and implant technologies available.
