The technological advances in the many disciplines of dentistry have been huge in recent years. Our principal dentist, Dr David Madruga Gonzalez, and his team, actively remain at the forefront of these advances in both technology and techniques. Dr Madruga has extensive training in advanced surgical and aesthetic techniques, undertaking training all over the world to keep abreast of the latest developments.
He has a special interest in minimally invasive procedures, which are better and less traumatic for you as a patient, and enables us to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted in a safe and predictable manner. Dr Madruga is one of the UK’s leading dental implant surgeons.
To help him deliver the ideal treatment for every patient, Dr Madruga and his team work with the very latest in dental technology.
Among the equipment we use routinely in the dental implant process are:
3D scanning and printers
Used in combination with photography to create bespoke dental restorations and the abutments that attach your restorations to your dental implants. This is known as CAD/CAM technology.
CT scans help in the precision placement of dental implants. The images produced give a high level of detail and enable your dentist to accurately plot the placement of your implants, checking bone density and also avoiding any nerves or other vital structures, to increase the chances of your implant treatment’s success. You don’t have to fear being put inside a large machine; instead, the camera moves around you as you sit in a chair, producing detailed 3D images that are then uploaded to a computer.
Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF)
PRGF is an advanced biotechnological therapy that makes use of the patient’s own blood to encourage healing and tissue regrowth after procedures such as tooth extraction. It can also help patients who are in need of dental implants but have suffered bone loss – without the need for a bone graft.
