Advanced 3D Imaging


We use the industry’s best facilities which are specifically designed and equipped with some of the most advanced technology available in the UK.

Advanced 3D Imaging and Computer Guided Dental Implant Surgery

3D digital imaging is crucial for dental implant treatment to ensure every step of the surgical procedure is setup and followed.

Implant surgery, as with any medical or dental intervention, requires careful planning to ensure the highest safety standard and make sure your health is central to everything. 3D imaging allows us to look at your jaw bone from all angles via a computer screen. It allows us to assess very carefully what surgical options are available to you.

This imaging also allows us to plan and complete your implant surgery with complete precision, ensuring that we can safely avoid any nerves or blood vessels in the region.

We will be delighted to demonstrate this equipment to you and show exactly what advantages this safe, affordable and non-invasive imaging technique has over normal dental x-rays.


Why not spread the cost of your treatment over 12 months interest free. Typical cost £166 per month for 12 months with no deposit. This will permanently replace a tooth with an implant. Great value treatment to allow you the smile that you deserve.
