Technology at Wycherley’s

We offer a wide range of treatment using some of the most up to date equipment and technology!

  1. Bio Lase Epic X (Diode Laser)

Treatments include:

  • Gingival contouring – this is where we can re-contour the shape of the gum around the tooth allowing for improved asymmetry
  • Gingevectomy- this the removal and contouring of the gum around the tooth to provide crown lengthening and correct a ‘gummy smile’
  • Periodontal disease- in cases where dental hygiene visits alone are not adequate to improve advanced gum disease, laser treatment can be used for periodontal pockets.
  • Frenectomy – this is the removal of the small fold of tissue between your gum and upper lip which can restrict mouth opening

The Epic X laser provides patients with greater comfort, less bleeding, faster healing and better clinical results than the conventional treatments.

2. Cerec and Omnicam (One-visit Dentistry)

  • Do you want highly aesthetic, tooth colored fillings or crowns – created and placed during a single dental appointment?
  • Would you prefer not to have an impression and a temporary?
  • Do you prefer metal-free, biocompatible materials?

CEREC is a sophisticated CAD/CAM system for the production of all ceramic inlays, onlays, partial crowns, veneers and crowns for anterior and posterior teeth. The best part is we mill the crown or inlay on site and it is fit the very same day in one appointment!

3. CBCT scan

Cone beam CT provides a high resolution 3d scan providing a more thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation, perfect for assisting in planning and placing dental implants. The accuracy of CBCT is comparable to medical CTs but uses a much lower radiation dose and it only takes about 20 seconds.

 

4. Digital x-rays

Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. They are a lot more efficient and are digitally processed straight onto the computer allowing immediate analysis and diagnosis.

 

5. VELscope

As part of every check-up the dentist carries out a visual examination with a VELscope scanner to check for the early signs of mouth cancer.  This powerful non-invasive tool is proven to be effective in checking for oral abnormalities that are often not visible to the naked eye.
