We’re really excited to let all our patients know we have put in the final piece of the jigsaw in our dental digital workflow. You may not know this but dentistry has been going through a digital revolution over the past few years and at Wayside Dental Practice in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, we’re fully invested in bringing the very latest technologies and software into our dental practice so our patients get the very best dental care available.
A good example of what digital workflow looks like in a dental practice is our use of the intraoral scanner. These powerful hand-held dental scanners allow us to take an immediate and accurate scan of teeth and mouth and create a 3D digital model which can be emailed direct to a dental lab saving time and money.
Our digital workflow is about to get even more efficient as we have invested in the Roland DWX-42W milling machine and it has now arrived. For the first time at Wayside Dental Practice this high spec dental milling equipment will allow us to create highly accurate, precise, aesthetic dental restorations, in-house. We can use our intra oral scans to design restorations in our Design Studio software and then send our design to our milling machine. Our milling machine will then take only 30 minutes to mill the restoration which it does using its own selection of automated drills. There’s even a little window so we can watch them being carefully crafted.
Initially we plan to use this latest technology for dental crowns and onlays and long term temporary restorations. The Roland also fits into our wider philosophy of always investing in new technology and patient-centred dental care.
So, if you’re looking for high-end dentistry from highly skilled dentists, from a T-scan bite analysis, computer guided dental implants including X-guide dynamic implant surgery and even laser dentistry, then Wayside Dental Practice is for you.
