Our CT Scanner gets its annual service

It’s annual service time for the Glasgow clinic’s Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Scanner.

Like any piece of sophisticated equipment it’s vitally important to have it serviced and maintained so that it works at its optimum.

This fantastic piece of equipment enables three dimensional imaging of the teeth and surrounding structures to be obtained using as low a radiation dose as possible.  To ensure the dosage is as low as possible, our EWOO Pax-Due CBCT Scanner allows us to select various sizes for scanning to ensure that we only view the area we require.

The three dimensional CBCT images allow fantastic diagnostic and planning capabilities for the dentists in the clinic and the images can be used for diagnosis, bone assessment, precise location of vital structures, endodontics(root treatment) on difficult teeth.

In addition, using the information gained from the CBCT scans, we can produce 3D models of a patients bone to enable computed assisted planning and design for implant placement is difficult areas.  This is made possible using a unique planning software tool offering the possibility of computer guided surgery

Tasty way to celebrate Sonny's study success

Congratulations to Sonny Basi…another of our dental clinic work placement school pupils who’s earned a place to study dentistry.

This time Sonny is heading to the University of Glasgow. Thanks to his mum who brought us in these lovely cakes to celebrate!

A few weeks ago we shared the news about another former work placement pupil Kirstie Malley who has received an unconditional offer to study dentistry at Dundee University.

Good luck to both Kirstie and Sonny with their future studies. We’re delighted to have played our part in your journeys.
