Why Do We Use Smile Imaging?

Sunday, February 8th, 2015

1950426_sAt City Dental Leeds, we pride ourselves in delivering a first class service for our clients and part of our promise is to ensure our patients have access to the best treatments and the latest technology around. We are delighted to offer a smile imaging service, which enables our clients to se the projected results of treatment before they even sit in the dental chair.

What is smile imaging and how could it benefit me?

Smile imaging is a digital service, which allows us to show you images of what your smile could look like with the help of restorative, orthodontic or cosmetic dental treatment. For many people, it’s hard to imagine how their smile will look after treatment after just simply reading about a treatment and discussing the ins and outs of it with a dentist; with imaging, you can actually see the pictures and therefore you gain a much better understanding of the difference treatment can make.

With smile imaging, we take a photograph of your existing smile and then use advanced software to produce an updated version of how the teeth will look after treatment. We can use smile imaging to show you the anticipated results of orthodontic treatment, tooth whitening, veneers, dental implants and cosmetic bonding.

Smile imaging could be beneficial for you if you’re thinking about undergoing treatment, you’re not sure whether to take the plunge or you’re eager to see how your treatment will benefit you without waiting for weeks or months to see the results in real life.

If you’re keen to find out more or you’ve been umming and ahhing about having treatment, call us now and arrange a consultation or bob in and see us if you’re nearby.

How Do Our CT Scanning Machines Help Us Treat Patients?

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

429735_blogAt City Dental Leeds, we pride ourselves on providing clients with the latest technology and we are very proud to have an advanced CT scanner on-site. We accept referrals from other clinics and use our scanner to provide accurate and effective care for patients in Leeds and beyond.

About CT scans

CT (computerised tomography) scans are used commonly in medicine and they are becoming increasingly commonplace in modern dentistry. Scanners produce incredibly detailed images of the inside of the body and can be instrumental in the diagnosis, treatment and management of a diverse range of health conditions.

We use our CT scanner primarily for implant treatment. The scan images allow us to locate the best sites for implant placement with pin-point accuracy and guide us during the procedure to fit the implant. We also sometimes use the scanner during the consultation stage to assess whether or not patients are suitable candidates for treatment; we are able to judge the thickness and strength of the bone tissue and ascertain whether or not an implant could be supported.

We are also able to use CT scan images to show patients how treatment works and what it involves; seeing detailed pictures enables them to gain a greater understanding of what goes on during the process and how implants are able to act as tooth replacements.

Preparing for a CT scan

If you are having a CT scan, your dentist will explain exactly what will happen and they will be happy to answer any questions. There’s nothing to worry about and the can is not painful in any way; we simply ask you to lie as still as possible for around 15 minutes. Before a scan, we ask you to remove any jewellery from the face, ears and neck and any loose attachments, such as scarves and glasses. After the scan, the images will be available to our dentists and they can talk you through the treatment process.

How does smile imaging work?

Smile imaging works by using state of the art technology to convert images of your existing smile into new visual representations of how your smile will look after treatment is complete.

We take photographs of your smile and then show you how it will change once you start treatment; you can then see the predicted outcome of your treatment.

What are the benefits of smile imaging?

There are many benefits of smile imaging, especially for those who are uncertain of what to expect from cosmetic or orthodontic treatment. Imaging can show patients how treatment can benefit them and help them to make a decision about whether or not they wish to go ahead with treatment. Imaging can also be really positive for patients who are just setting out on their treatment journey, as it shows them what they’ve got to look forward to once treatment is finished. Dentists can also use imaging to explain how treatments work and what effects and outcomes they can achieve.

Whether you’re interested in tooth whitening, veneers, tooth replacement or a stunning smile makeover, smile imaging can be hugely beneficial. Call us now to find out more and book your consultation; our friendly team will be happy to help!

We Offer CT Scan Technology For Our Patients In Leeds

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

805589_blogAt City Dental Leeds, we pride ourselves in offering the best treatments and use advanced technology to enable to allow our patients to enjoy accurate, speedy and effective treatment. We are delighted to have a CT scanner on-site, which is an incredibly useful aide for dental implant treatment. We use the scanner for our own patients and we also take CT referrals from other practices in the local area.

What is a CT scanner?

A CT scanner is a form of diagnostic equipment, which looks similar to a large doughnut; you lie inside the centre hole and cameras rotate; these cameras capture incredibly detailed images of the interior of the body and provide us with much more information than a traditional X-ray. We can adjust the position of the scanner to focus on various body parts. The scanning process is not painful in any way and all you have to do is lie as still as possible for a few minutes. Afterwards, we are able to see the images on computer screens.

How is a CT scanner used in dentistry?

CT scanners can be used for diagnosing oral health issues, but we use our scanner primarily for dental implant treatment. The accuracy and detail of the images enables us to pinpoint the best location for the new implant and we can plan treatment using the images. We can also guide our patients through the process, using visual aids to enable them to gain a better understanding of what is going to happen and how the treatment works. Scans also enable us to check the density of the bone tissue in the jaw to ensure that patients are suitable candidates and there is sufficient tissue to support an implant.

Preparing for a CT scan

There are no specific requirements for a CT scan and we simply ask you to remove glasses and any jewellery and then to lie back and relax. Scanning only takes around 10-15 minutes and you won’t feel anything at all. If you have any questions or concerns, our dental team will be happy to help, so don’t hesitate to ask.

What are CT scans used for?

CT scans have a whole range of uses within medicine and dentistry. We use CT scans for implant treatment, as the images enable us to locate the best site for the dental implant. CT scans are much more detailed than traditional X-rays and this means that we can find the optimum location for the implant at the planning stage; we can also use the scan images to guide us during the procedure to fit the implants. We also use scans during consultations to ascertain whether or not patients are suitable candidates for implant treatment; we can use the images to check bone density and look at 3D models of the jaws.

What happens when you have a CT scan?

Having a CT scan is not painful and there’s no need to feel worried or apprehensive. Before you have your scan, you’ll be asked to take out any jewellery, such as earrings and necklaces and you will be told all about the scan, what’s going to happen and how long it will take. We will provide you with a mouthpiece, which will help you to keep your mouth open and the scanner will then take images of your mouth; you don’t have to anything apart from trying to stay as still as possible. The scan takes a maximum of 15 minutes and you will be free to head home straight afterwards.

Let Our Lovely Leeds Lasers Lift Your Spirits

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

3534882_blogLaser treatment is increasingly common in modern dentistry and we are able to offer amazing laser services in the centre of Leeds! City Dental Leeds is a forward-thinking practice and we are eager to ensure our clients have access to the latest technology. Our laser services enable patients to enjoy swift, painless dental treatment.

Laser dentistry

Laser dentistry is increasingly popular and provides an accurate, quick and clean alternative to traditional techniques. With lasers, treatment takes less time and patients can have treatment without having to worry about dental drills or needles. Lasers can often take the place of drills and this means that no pain is involved and patients do not have to have injections; not only is this good news for patients with a fear of needles, but it also means you can head home without that horrible numb feeling in your mouth. The prospect of laser treatment is also much less daunting than traditional treatment, which can be hugely beneficial for nervous patients.

Lasers have a wide range of uses in modern dentistry, from the detection and treatment of decay and gum disease, to cosmetic procedures such as whitening and gum reshaping. As they often eliminate the need for making incisions, this reduces the risk of infection and shortens recovery time, as well as making treatment much less painful.

If you’re keen to find out about the latest technology on offer at City Dental or you want to learn more about laser treatment, give us a call today!

Lovely Lasers in Leeds

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

585986_blogIf anything has come along to ease the worries and fears of any patient who has to have something done at dentists in Leeds, it’s the laser. Since this was introduced in the nineties, it has revolutionised all range of procedures in the surgery. It doesn’t have the bone shattering affect that a drill has, nor does it do the damage left by using a scalpel. It is also far less painful than these traditional techniques and has greatly reduced the need to use anaesthetics during treatments. The applications of the laser are amazing: it can be used with pinpoint accuracy to place dental implants and doing tricky jobs like root canals. Lasers can burn at tissue efficiently in order to tackle wisdom teeth that are submerged, remove tissue that is blighted by gum disease and is exceptional for shaping excess gums; it is also brilliant when used for teeth whitening techniques. The reason why this technique is the new kid on the block is because it does so little damage to gum tissue, the teeth and to the bone; this means that healing afterwards is fast and less traumatic. If you are in trouble and things in your mouth are playing you up, find a dentist who uses this type of equipment because you will never want to go back to the bad old days of the drill and scalpel- once bitten, you’ll be smitten!
