CT scans are 3 dimensional images of your bone – We are very proud to be only one of a few practices in Berkshire to have a CT scanner in house.
Our Preferred CT Scanner is the E-Woo Picasso from Vatech & E-woo Technology, used for 3D imaging of the jaws.
Being the world’s best selling 3 in 1, Picasso trio scanners have been installed in about 2,000 sites around the world. It offers all anatomical information like septum, cyst, etc in the sinus in cases like multi or full mouth implant surgery, at once.
Below are some screen images of the information we gain that is invaluable to the dental Implant process as it allows to visualise the placement in 3D. The main benefit is that as we know the anatomy of the site where the implant is placed we do not have to make large cuts(incisions) in the gum. Implants are placed through a very small hole in the gum therefore reducing healing time and post surgery discomfort and swelling.

Impression free scanning

Ultrasurgery – Piezoelectric bone surgery
This is a special machine used for bone cutting only. Traditionally bone drills are used for this treatment – but using this ultrasonic cutting technology, bone is removed and re-shaped effortlessly).
Daray multimedia surgical light
In our on-site theatre we have a surgical operating lighting system which allows the surgeons to see very clearly (with no shadowing). It also incorporates a SONY ® digital camcorder so that all surgery is recorded and stored as part of our contemporaneous record keeping. The data is then burned onto a DVD and stored.
The Sister 3 (Eschmann®) vacuum autoclave is the latest digital sterilisation machine. It not only sterilises surgical equipment in 45 minutes, but also stores all data relating to the cycle (ensuring no error in sterilisation has occurred).
The digital machine has been designed and manufactured to provide consistent, validated sterilisation, time after time.
DP medical surgical microscope
For micro-soft tissue surgery we use a surgical microscope. This allows us to magnify very small areas of the gum tissue and makes sutures small gum tissue very easy using fine sutures that are able to resorb easily. This in turn reduces healing time and trauma.
