What is a Clinical Dental Technician?

A Clinical Dental Technician (CDT) is a highly trained dental professional who specialises in the design, creation, and fitting of removable dental appliances, most commonly dentures. Unlike general dental technicians, who work behind the scenes in a dental laboratory, Clinical Dental Technicians interact directly with patients to assess their specific needs.

Role and Responsibilities

Consultation
A CDT will meet with patients to discuss their dental requirements and assess the condition of any remaining teeth or oral tissues.

Design
Utilising their expertise in dental materials and technologies, they design customised appliances, ensuring they are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Fabrication
Once the design phase is complete, the CDT crafts the dental appliance using a variety of materials, such as acrylics and metals.

Fitting
The final stage involves fitting the appliance, followed by any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal comfort and functionality.

Follow-up Care
After the fitting, a CDT often provides guidance on how to properly care for the dental appliance, ensuring longevity and sustained oral health.

Why Choose a Clinical Dental Technician?

Personalised Service
Given that they work directly with patients, CDTs are able to offer a more personalised service, tailoring each dental appliance to the unique needs and preferences of the individual.

Specialist Knowledge
The specialist training of a CDT ensures a higher standard of care and expertise in the creation and fitting of dental appliances.

One-Stop Solution
With an in-house CDT, practices like Smiles Centre can offer a seamless, end-to-end service from consultation through to fitting, all under one roof.

Having a Clinical Dental Technician on our team is just one of the ways Smiles Centre is committed to providing comprehensive, top-quality dental care for our patients.

Advantages of a Dental Practice with Own Laboratory

Speed and Efficiency
Quick Turnaround – An on-site lab allows for accelerated processing times for various dental works, including crowns and dentures, enabling patients to obtain their treatments in a more timely manner.
Immediate Adjustments – Any necessary modifications to dental appliances can be made instantly, reducing the need for additional visits.

Customisation and Precision
Bespoke Treatments – Technicians in the lab collaborate closely with the dental team, ensuring each dental appliance is customised for an ideal fit and optimal aesthetics.
Quality Control – The presence of the lab within the practice allows the dental team to oversee the fabrication process directly, thereby maintaining high standards of quality and precision.

Convenience and Comfort
One-Stop Service – The all-inclusive nature of having a lab on-site provides a streamlined experience, offering all services from consultation to fitting under one roof.
Reduced Stress – Fewer appointments and expedited services make for a less stressful and more convenient experience, particularly for anxious or busy patients.

Improved Communication
Team Collaboration – The on-site lab enhances communication between the dental team and lab technicians, ensuring a unified approach to patient care.
Patient Involvement – With everything housed in a single location, patients can be more actively involved in their treatment plans, including the tailoring of their dental appliances.

The presence of an on-site laboratory greatly enriches the level of care we can provide at Smiles Centre, offering a range of benefits that improve both operational efficiency and patient satisfaction.

High Quality

You can be sure that your new teeth are going to be strong and natural looking. When you buy a new denture you want to know that it is going to look like natural teeth so we take great care when helping you select the right shape, size and coloured tooth for your new denture. With our expertise we can help guide you in what would look good but also what type of tooth would suit your particular shape of mouth. We can talk you through the various different types of denture available and with advantages and disadvantage of each outlined so that you can make an informed decision on which one is right for you.

 

Advanced Aftercare

Up to 10 years after care on new dentures to give you piece of mind. Time, careful planning, skill, high quality products and advanced techniques result in a much higher quality of denture and that is why we are able to offer a after care plan on all new Premium (2 years) and Premium plus (5 years) dentures. The Denture Plan will cover the cost of adjustments; if the denture develops problems, repairs if you were to drop the denture, additions should you lose a natural tooth and relines in the event of the denture becoming lose due to anatomical changes like weight loss. All this is possible because your new denture is being made and fitted by a Clinical Dental Technician.

“It was very educational listening to the advice on how to look after my new dentures and the whole experience was different and so much better than before. My new dentures are one hundred percent better than my last ones too. I also noticed that my speech was better, I’m very pleased.”

Cleaning Guide

Are you cleaning your dentures correctly? Most people are not! If your dentures are damaged during the cleaning process it is very likely that they will become stained and are much more likely to fracture. This is usually due to the over use of bleaching agents that are found in most denture cleaning products. So here at Smiles we go to great lengths making sure that our customers are cleaning their new dentures in the best possible way to make sure that they last a long time and stay healthy to use. You too can take advantage of this cleaning regime by following our simple 3 step rule; brushing twice a day, disinfecting twice a week and de-scaling twice a month. It is that simple!

Altering Dentures

If your dentures are rubbing or have become lose, this section is for you. Your denture will not last forever but there are steps you can take to make them last as long as possible. Cleaning them correctly as outlined above is one way but, another way to get great longevity from your dentures is to have them regularly checked by a clinical dental technician. A simple reline can sometime double the life of a denture and it is considerably cheaper than having a new denture made. Here at smiles we can add teeth, repair fractures, strengthen and even replace missing parts of a denture. Even better, we can usually do all this while you wait so if you would like to have your denture working better for you today, just give us a call. Here you can view our denture adjustment policy
