We are proud and excited to announce the arrival of the latest CAD/CAM technology to our (your!) Dental Practice.

The Trios colour digital oral scanner marks another super breakthrough in making dentistry simpler and painless for our Patients.

We thought our Cerec Computerised System was great but this Trios Scanner allows us to achieve much more for our patients; easier to use and faster results.The Trios Scanner takes very detailed images of your mouth and, in a matter of minutes, can produce highly accurate 3D virtual models of your teeth on the computer screen. These virtual models are all we need to make a variety of dental appliances for you - crowns, bridges, sports mouth guards, bite splints and dentures - ready to fit at your next appointment.

It is much easier and comfortable for ourpatients to have the thin scanner probe momentarily, placed in your mouth than the traditional messy impression materials. It is actually very comfortable and interesting to have your teeth scanned, by this device.   Watch the following video of a dentist scanning his own mouth - 

The Trios Scanner records your Occlusion: how your upper and lower teeth meet and bite. It also measures the shade of your teeth to help ensure the best colour match for your new restorations. Ceramic inlays and onlays can be made, instead of the usual metal or composite fillings, restoring your teeth for longer lasting and superior aesthetic results. This technology can also be used for orthodontic appliances.

We no longer need to take impressions of the mouth for the majority of restorations. The “virtual information” is transferred electronically to the Specialised Dental Laboratory that we use. The technicians there, can then design and manufacture individual restorations, to a new level of quality and precision fit and with a faster turn around time between our practice and laboratory, than was ever possible before.

It is a large financial investment for our practice but we make this because we wish our patients to benefit from the latest worthwhile advances in dentistry.

Cancer Research has just published new figures showing that men are more than twice as likely to develop oral cancer than women; 5,300 men to 2,500 women. In addition , it is often diagnosed in younger men of ages between 45 to 59 years.

Nine out of ten cases are preventable if people cut their risk by reducing their alcohol intake and cease smoking. Regular visits to our Practice will allow your Dentist to find anything out of the ordinary at the dental health exam appointment and immediately commence remedial treatment either by ourselves or by referral to Specialist help.

We do not find serious problems very often but your Dentist can save your life, if you come to see us, so that we can help you with our specialised knowledge and experience.

Research by King’s College, London and the University of Southhampton showed that gum disease is associated with an increase in cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease, possibly due mechanisms linked to the body’s inflammatory  response.

The inflammatory molecules , which have been associated with an elevated risk of other outcomes such as cardiovascular disease, can be reduced to a level closer to that seen in a healthy state, by effective gum treatment by the Hygienist or Dentist.

Without being too much of a kill- joy, research has also shown that the modern habit of drinking coffee and tea – on average four cups per day - with one in three British adults adding sometimes two to three teaspoonfuls of sugar to their drink, increases seriously , the frequency of acid attack on the teeth.

Each teaspoonful contains 4g of sugar whih means that four cups of tea or coffee per day, with just one teaspoonful of sugar, could in itself make up half of a person’s daily recommended sugar intake.
