We have in clinic, up-to-date digital dental x-ray equipment and a CT scanner. These are essential in enabling us to provide the highest level of care. This equipment is used to help us make an accurate diagnosis and to recommend the most suitable treatment. Digital dental x-rays emit low levels of radiation and are extremely safe. Our on-site CT scanner is particularly useful for diagnosing more complex problems and means there is no need for you to travel to another location for this test. We use the images obtained to plan your treatment, ensuring it is carried out as smoothly and comfortably as possible.
