The Staines Centre of Dental Excellence is a custom built, state of the art dental practice based in Staines Upon Thames, Middlesex. We offer general dentistry and hygiene services as well as advanced treatments such as dental implants, adult orthodontic treatment including invisible braces, cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery and sedation for nervous patients.
Digital X-rays are taken to help our dentists evaluate and diagnose many conditions.
At The Staines Centre Of Dental Excellence we use digital x-rays which produce much less radiation than traditional x-rays, minimizing radiation exposure for our clients, meaning the radiation dose is up to ten times less than in a conventional dental practice. It also enables the pictures to be viewed almost immediately as well as enlarged or enhanced to ensure correct diagnosis.
Sirona Orthophos XG 3D System
The Sirona Orthophos XG 3D is one of the newest and most sophisticated dental CT scanner and offers us the opportunity to undertake and generate 3 dimensional x-rays, carry out in-depth diagnostics, treatment plans and order surgical guides to enable a streamlined and safe approach to implant dentistry.
3D imaging allows The Staines Centre of Dental Excellence to achieve greater diagnostic accuracy making implant treatment safer and more effective.
Why use PIEZOSURGERY?
During surgical procedures to augment or remove bone from the jaws, traditionally burs and saws were used. However Piezosurgery is a way of cutting bone using ultrasonic waves rather than drills or saws. One of the greatest benefits of using this method of cutting is that the soft tissues and nerves are not cut by the machine, only bone. This makes it especially valuable when removing bone close to nerves or performing sinus augmentation procedures.
The special ultrasonic micro vibrations of the technique cuts bone and nothing else. No soft tissue is damaged at all which reduces the discomfort from the treatment to the patient, and at the same time not only reduces the healing time, but also post operative pain and swelling.
