Televisions in Surgeries

While we acknowledge dental treatment can be daunting and unpleasant at times, we invite you take your mind off the procedure and enjoy a favourite programme while we take care your dental needs. Televisions in our surgeries make passing the time and relaxing in the dental chair more enjoyable.


Digital Dental and Panoramic X-rays

Our digital dental x-rays are very safe and ultra-low in radiation. The high-resolution images are available for immediate evaluation on our treatment centre monitor. A digital panoramic x-ray is an excellent diagnostic tool for showing areas of concern in teeth, bone structure and joints.

With a tiny handheld intra-oral camera, we can take high resolution photos and videos inside your mouth and bring them up on the treatment centre monitor for you to review. It allows us to provide a greater understanding of your dental condition when making choices regarding your oral health. Once the work is completed, our intra oral camera will show you how treatment has restored your tooth.

Electric handpieces are quieter and produce less vibrations and no aerosol droplets compared to their conventional air-driven counterparts. It allows for greater treatment accuracy, conservation of healthy tooth structure and much better infection control. Many patients report that this also make dental treatment more comfortable and much quicker.
