Modern dental technology

CT Scanning

Cone Beam CT Scanner

The Cone Beam CT scanner we use is the Gendex CB500 I-CAT scanner which is specially designed for dental use. This is an extremely safe machine with probably the lowest radiation dose of any scanner available in the market. As a comparison to a hospital dental CT scan, it has approximately 10% of the radiation dose. It is extremely comfortable and unlike a hospital scanner it is like sitting on a chair and the maximum scan time is less than 23 seconds. “3-D images provide a more complete and accurate way to plan your case and the cost for these images is less than half the price of other scanning centres in Birmingham”

Dental Microscopes

Dental Microscopes

Dental microscopes have been almost a revolution for root canal therapy, gum surgery and restorative treatments. The ability to see under magnification has benefits for both the clinician and the patient as treatments are carried more accurately.

Computer Guided Surgery

Computer Guided Surgery

Dental Implants placed by computer guided guides and cone beam scanning are placed more accurately, safely avoiding any important structures like nerves and sinuses.

Vacuum Autoclaves

Washer Disinfectors

Having 2 separate central decontamination rooms provides the utmost in dental practice sterilisation as used/dirty instruments do not have to be transported between the floors of this practice. Having both the washer disinfector along with vacuum autoclaves the patients have the very best in sterile instruments used on them.

Aqua Cut Air Abrasion

Aqua Cut Air Abrasion

Aqua cut abrasion unit provides the restorative dentist with a tool which generates no heat, pressure or vibration and also reduces the need for local anaesthesia in shallow cavities. It acts like a mini sandblaster and sprays the decay away. This in turn is hugely beneficial to the patient as no numbness is present and the appointment can be shorter. It has many other benefits like cleaning stains, removing old fillings and prepare teeth for bonding.

Airflow Units

Airflow Units

The EMS airflow system has been used by BPI Dental since 2014 .  All of our dental hygiene rooms are equipped with this advanced mechanical tooth cleaning technology. It works by projecting air, water and sodium bicarbonate onto teeth and dental implant restorations . The level at which this can be done is not normally achievable with ultrasonics or dental polishing. Persistent stains due to smoking, drinks and food stuffs can be eradicated effortlessly  with no discomfort and is pain free.  All of our patients who have had dental implants and are under our maintenance programme are treated with this latest technology form Switzerland.

BTI Machine

BTI Machine

Platelet rich growth factors have been huge paradigm shift in implant dentistry in the last decade. The system we use is BTI Endoret developed by Professor Anitua  (Spain) and also the APRF system from Professor Choukroun (France). There are many benefits of using the patient’s own blood to help with the bone regeneration and also soft tissue healing with faster healing and less pain and discomfort experienced by those undergoing the procedure.

Florida Probe

Florida Probe

The Florida probe is a probing and charting software used by dentists/ hygienists to detect and diagnose periodontal disease. We have been using this since 2002 and successfully treated thousands of patients with gum therapy which has been accurately diagnosed with the help of the Florida probe.

Digital Xrays

Digital Xrays

BPI have been using digital x-rays since 2006. There are many benefits of this technology with reduce radiation exposure to the patients. Thus making this one of the safest forms of reducing risk to radiation. Secondly since there is no wait time for x-rays to be developed, with the results available instantaneously. Lastly no more chemicals are needed for the developing of x-rays and this reduces the hazard to the staff and the environment.
