Digital Teeth Scanning – The Future of Dentistry read more

Has “magic wand” treatment finally arrived in dentistry? Well not quite, but digital scanning has transformed the type of dentistry we can offer. From simple procedures to complex rehabilitation smile design digital technology has helped dentists design and execute treatment with unparalleled accuracy.

Sadly at the moment there is a low penetration and uptake of technology like this within UK dental practices. However here at the Mayhill we have fully embraced the future!

Many patients will ask “ What will my teeth look like when they are straight?”

Seeing is Believing

With the new 3D scanning technology it is possible to see  your teeth move into a final position, before commencing treatment. By simply scanning your teeth electronically, the software will show you a three dimensional view of how your teeth are currently and how they could look after treatment.

A Better Patient Experience

Previously we would need to take impressions and wait for another appointment to see the results. Digital scanning now makes the process quicker, cleaner and more convenient. We can now make braces, mouthguards, crowns, bridges and dentures without the need to take impressions by capturing highly accurate 3D scans of our teeth which are digitised and sent for processing to a dental laboratory.

Greener Dentistry

Digital images at the speed of light is quicker and greener than postal vans delivering dental impressions. The whole process is a lot quicker and more accurate, making life more convenient and greener with all those materials that we no longer have to use.

Free Consultations

All our team members have been trained to use digital scanning and are available for free consultations. At the appointment we encourage patients to tell us exactly what their concerns are. We can then gather all the information that the dentist needs to make accurate treatment plans.

If you would like a free consultation or advice with our treatment co-ordinators please feel free to call 01600 712020 or email info@themayhill.co.uk
