Digital Dentist St Albans

With the future being digital, technology constantly advancing and improving workflows, St Albans dentistry is also improving and investing in these new technologies to ensure our patients receive only the best quality of care possible.

We already upgraded our radiograph systems to being digital for the past 10 years meaning all our patients receive a small fraction of radiation when taking these x-rays in comparison to traditional methods. Our systems are so advanced we also receive referrals from other st albans and harpenden  dental practices to take x-rays of their patients. This limitation of radiation is how we keep our patients safe.

Digital xrays


Our St Albans Dental team have now upgraded all the orthodontic systems to be able to provide a digital orthodontic planning service.

This means that once you have decided on which brace system you prefer, your dentist will take a set of impressions of your teeth. These will be uploaded to digital models and your treatment can be planned completely digitally. We can even show the what we expect the end result to be using these latest methods. This planning allows us to communicate what we can achieve and to help you visualise what your end result will be.

This service is now included within all of our braces packages FREE.

Invisalign Braces At High Oaks Dental

Invisalign, Invisible Braces St Albans

Our dentists at High Oaks Dental Practice St Albans offer the popular Invisalign clear braces. These are near invisible braces that straighten teeth for adults and children.

Invisalign is a U.S. company founded in 2001 and is used globally by dentists. Our dentists have a vast amount of experience in providing this system, with over 7 years of experience and successfully treating 100s of patients.

Invisalign uses a series of clear braces manufactured by CAD- CAM systems to straighten teeth

These clear braces need to be worn constantly throughout the day (approximately 20-22 hours per day) and only removed for eating and brushing your teeth.

Invisalign is a complete package which straightens the top and bottom teeth simultaneously. It is the only system which creates a computer designed ‘movie’ called a ‘ClinCheck’ allowing patients to see the predicted movement of their teeth until they are straight.
