world class orthodontic technology
At Bamford Orthodontic Practice, we have invested in the latest equipment and technology for our dental and orthodontic practices. By utilising new technologies, we are able to treat our patients with a high degree of precision, accelerating treatment time and results.
Take a look at some of the technology we use at our practice in Rochdale.
iTero intraoral scanner
The iTero Intraoral Scanner is designed to capture a high-precision 3D scan of a patient’s teeth so that treatment can be delivered with speed, accuracy and reliability. This device allows us to treat complex cases without the need for impressions. Below is a video detailing how this device is used to assist in orthodontic treatment, dental implant treatment and aesthetic crown and bridge cases.
Bamford Orthodontic Practice offers modern digital x-rays to increase precision in capturing photos of the teeth. Additionally, we use similar state-of-the-art technologies to allow for quicker treatment, including:
- Cone Beam CT Scanner - generates images of the teeth and jaws in 3D to give a millimetre accurate assessment of teeth, bone, nerves and other important dental structures.
- Dental Panoramic Tomogram (DPT) - moves around the face to give a fast and accurate 2D view of the teeth and jaws to aid diagnosis and treatment planning.
- Lateral Cephalometric Machine – takes a side view of the skull and lower jaw.
These additional facilities are particularly useful for planning orthodontic and dental implant treatments. This on-site technology means quicker diagnosis, fewer visits and avoids referral to another site to have the tests performed.
The use of a microscope can assist with root canal treatment. Often root canal treatment is simple particularly with front teeth. With multi-rooted teeth the procedure can be more complex and referral to a Specialist may be advised. The use of a microscope to magnify the root canals can increase the chances of success with root treatment.
