Brand New Cone Beam CT 3D Scanner

We are delighted to announce the installation of our brand new Cone Beam CT 3D scanner at Barnton. The Sirona XG 3D is a state-of-the-art 3D scanner and keeps the practice at the forefront of dental technology. Indeed, we are proud to be one of only a handful of practices in Scotland who are able to offer this service to our patients. Dental implant treatment can now be planned digitally in 3D, improving accuracy when placing implants whilst often decreasing the length of the procedure. The scanner can even be integrated with our CEREC imaging system so that the final crown or bridge can be visualised before any treatment has even been started. Furthermore, because we will now be able to visualise structures that cannot be viewed in 2D, we will now be able to diagnose problems that may be missed by traditional dental X-rays.

John and I are extremely excited about this new addition and look forward to being able to provide the very highest standard of care for our patients.
