Your Health and Safety

Here at North Avon Dental we pride ourselves on maintaining the highest standards of infection control and safety procedures.

During all dental treatments gloves, protective glasses and masks are worn by dentists and clinical staff. These are designed to protect you against the transmission of diseases and infections.

Anything that goes insides a patient's mouth is either disposed of or sterilized between patients in one of our autoclaves which are monitored regularly using chemical and biological tests.

For your safety, we also use high-tech Trophy digital x-ray systems, which reduce the radiation to you by 90% over conventional dental x-ray systems.

X-rays are important because they help us detect conditions that may not be visible in the mouth such as: decay between teeth or under existing fillings, receding bone (due to periodontal disease), infected or abscessed teeth and fractured teeth.

 

 Technology

At North Avon Dental we use a combination of the Lisa Class B water steam sterilizers and The DAC Universal which is a unique combination autoclave (type S) for sterilizing dental handpieces and turbines and only one of three in Christchurch.

The DAC Universal provides the best conditions for the high-quality maintenance and sterilization of instruments and removes the risk of cross-contamination. The DAC Universal ensures total hygiene control in the clinic.

 

Digital Xrays

A digital sensor used in conjunction with a special x-ray machine to put your x-ray images instantaneously onto the computer monitor so that you and your dentist can diagnose any conditions present. This technology uses 90% less radiation than standard technology. We use the Trophy system backed by Kodak.

 Diagnodent

Laser decay detection is another way we can diagnose more effectively, and  treat decay as soon as possible.  When decay is discovered sooner, it is usually smaller and easier to treat.  Effectively, it is also less expensive to treat.
The Diagnodent laser uses a frequency wave laser beam that when calibrated and directed toward your tooth - will give a reading indicating the presence or absence of decay.  It is painless and safe.  It is like shining a tiny light on your tooth.
This is high technology at its best - sophisticated and easy
 
 
 
 
 
Root Zx Apex locator
An apex locator is an electronic device used when measuring the length of teeth during root canal treatment.  The Zx has a 96.2% accuracy rating and is another example of how the dentists at North Avon Dental use modern technology to get the best possible treatment outcomes for their patients.
