Scan offers dentists best possible insight: ideal for implant patients

We have installed in the clinic one of the most advanced CT scanners available in the dental world.
This highly sophisticated piece of equipment allows dentists to create the most amazing 3D images of a patient’s mouth and face, enabling us to see precisely and clearly what’s happening ‘beneath the surface’.
The technology is fast – we can scan the patient and within minutes be discussing a treatment plan based on what we’ve generated pictorially on one of our surgery screens.
As well as 3D imaging, the machine also produces advanced X-ray style images – again in a few minutes.
For patients having dental implant surgery this CT scanner means we can generate precise imagery which allows us to embark on computer aided surgery.
We also offer the scanner for use by referring dentists – giving their patients the opportunity to access a valuable insight into their dental status.

Endodontics focus: Ross Henderson joins our clinical team

We’re delighted to welcome Ross Henderson who is the latest member of our clinical team at Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry.Ross’s focus will be on endodontics in the clinic.

Endodontics - the word derives from the Greek endo ”inside”; and odons ”tooth” - deal with the tooth pulp and the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth.

Endodontists perform a variety of procedures including root canal therapy, surgery, treating cracked teeth, and treating dental trauma.Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures. If the pulp (containing nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue and fibrous tissue) becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is often required to save the tooth.Ross’s appointment further enhances the experience of our team and ensures we can offer the very best treatment to our patients.
