Providing the best value for money using the very latest technology
We offer impression-free digital dentistry, which will be music to the ears of nervous patients, as well as advanced 3D imaging, intraoral scanning, on-site milling and CBCT scanning to offer the best service and outcomes for our patients.
Thistle Dental in Aberdeen is at the forefront of digital dentistry and the most advanced practice in North East Scotland. Our leading-edge digital technology means we can deliver high quality treatments under one roof. In fact, our principal dentist Vikram Kavi often works on difficult implant cases other dentists just can’t perform.
Cone beam CT scanning helps provide safer, quicker and more accurate dental implant placement. The scans allow Dr Kavi to assess our patients’ mouths and jawbones with pinpoint accuracy before we start any treatment. Modern CBCT machines are also safer, as they deliver a very low dose of radiation.
Intraoral scanning allows us to provide exceptionally accurate dentistry and is especially useful when carrying out implant treatments. The scanned images appear in crisp definition and this means we can show you exactly what we see, resulting in more effective chairside communication. They also eliminate the need for taking traditional, messy impressions that patients so often dislike.
To ensure that our implant treatment can be carried out from start to finish under the same roof, we have invested in a brand new, in-house laboratory that is the most advanced in the UK. It houses a full milling machine that enables us to create crowns, bridges and full arch bridges during a single appointment. We also have an e.MAX® furnace that can make thinner, better looking, longer lasting crowns more quickly than traditional furnaces. And we hope to be able to print dentures with our state-of-the-art 3D printer in the very near future!
As well as boasting all the very latest technology the lab is managed by a Certified Dental Technician. CDTs are legally qualified to deal with patients directly and are not commonly found in dental practices or labs, making us the most technically skilled and advanced practice around.
