Technologies evolve rapidly in the modern world in many industries. Within implant dentistry, technology is something we pay extra attention to. There are constant new advancements in our field that allow our work to be more accurate. We have increased digital focus in planning all treatments, this is why there is a lot of time spent on planning your dental implant surgery.
A CBCT Scan stands for Cone-beam computed tomography systems and is a variation of traditional systems. The CBCT systems rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These data are used to reconstruct a 3D image of the mouth teeth and jaw in a high resolution.
These scans give us greater insight than a typical x-ray, with a lower dose of radiation to you and show us in high resolution of your teeth, soft tissue, nerves and bone. With a virtual model of your mouth from all angles, we can create a smile that is perfectly aligned and suited to you and is the starting point for your dental implant surgery journey.
We believe that all our treatments should be carried out with the highest level of precision, using dependable equipment that’s recognised for its outstanding results. Guided surgery allows us to do this using an amalgamation of advanced technologies. For patients, the process of guided surgery is smooth, yet the results are life-changing.
We use technology to combine your CBCT scans, models of your mouth and forecasts of the final outcome. This then allows us to strategise the surgery before your appointment. The software we use allows us to plan the placement of your implants, utilising surgical guides to increase the precision in reality.
This area of dentistry is something we not only conduct in-house but educate other practitioners on. We are recognised both nationally and internationally for training practitioners on how best to use this technology to forward plan and increase their precision.
With over 4,000 implants placed (and counting), our dental implants assisted by the technology of guided surgery are a predictable, modern way to replace teeth. We give smiles that shine and allow our patients to live their lives with confidence.

“I just want to say a big thank you to David, Julie, Clare, Harriet and Zoe at Smile Designs Implant Studio in Harrogate.
I was over the moon with my implants. I can smile again now.
The care I received was second to none and I would definitely recommend your Implant Studio to anyone needing dental implants. Thank you so much. I’m thrilled!”
“ After a lifetime of poor dental care I was bordering on an irrational fear of the dentist. I would rather stay in pain than go get treatment!
However, David and the team were amazing, listening to me , talking to me throughout treatments.
They have completely restored my teeth and my faith in the dentist! ”
