Let’s Talk – Focus, Precision, Accuracy

LED Illumination

Seiler users the brightest LED Illumination on the market at 150,000 lux. Why is this important? As you increase the power of magnification you lose light, this is when LED at 150,000 lux gives you the illumination you need to see more.

LED for colour rendition which mimics natural daylight, low heat output and virtually no maintenance.

Steps of Magnification

Seiler offer 3 or 6 steps of magnification enhancing precision and improving the overall quality of all treatments. Treatment planning starts with seeing exactly where you need it. This is particularly true of endodontic applications, where complex and diverse problems often need treating.

Restorative Dentistry

Quickly detect enamel and dentine fractures as well as approximal caries. High precision optics enhance visualisation and allow accurate assessment of crown edges, preparation levels and veneers.


LED Illumination and 6 steps of magnification help facilitate a better view of fine anatomical structures and details of root canals and isthmuses.


Increased visualisation, illumination and precision create a more accurate basis for a range of restorative therapies allowing you to operate with confidence.


A better view of anatomical details enhances predictability and accuracy of microsurgical techniques, fine sutures can lead to more precise outcomes.

Will regular servicing reduce my surgery downtime?

In a word yes.

Planned Preventative Maintenance Service Kits are designed to replace all parts which are subject to ‘wear and tear’ before they pose a problem. Our accredited engineers sometimes spot other equipment faults early on during the service which means we are able rectify them before they before expensive and cause an unexpected breakdown.

Breakdowns are expensive and inconvenient, that’s one of the reasons why we promote DB Dental Bespoke Contracts which offer planned preventative servicing to help you maintain your patient treatment schedule and avoid unexpected downtime.

Ask our friendly team about PPM Maintenance for your practice – we cover all equipment new or old!

Are you sitting comfortably?

Dentists are at high risk for musculoskeletal disorders due to the nature of their work.

Whilst it is easy to visualise how an accident at work may result in life limiting illness many work-related injuries occur while sat in an office chair – or on a dental stool. These injuries may occur over a longer period of time, but the effects can be just as devastating. The key to preventing work-related musculoskeletal disorders is ergonomics.

Working with a dental microscope allows for the best possible working position. For some dentists this is their main motivation for investing in a microscope. Using a microscope encourages optimal working posture and ergonomics, fundamental to your long-term health and well being.

A dental microscope works in the same way that a telescope works, the furthest point of view is at infinity. Therefore the eyes are not strained and fatigue rarely occurs.

With features like the Seiler Vario Focus, 0-220 Binocular Head, Ergo Grips and Extender Rotation Device you can sit comfortably in an ergonomically correct position.

  • Vario Focus enables you to adjust the focal length from 200-350 mm without leaving your preferred working position therefore reducing neck and back strain.
  • Seiler Ergo Grips allow you to arrange the handgrips ergonomically to suit all working positions and treatments.

In Essence – Seiler microscopes allow you to maintain an ergonomic, upright working position without ever having to take your eyes off the patient.

The result, a more relaxed working day.

How does Same Day Dentistry Work?

  1. Patients attends for a consultation
  2. After consultation Planmeca Emerald is used to take a digital impression of the area to be treated.
  3. Your patient’s new dental vaneer, crown or filling is created as a 3D model in the CADCAM software Romexis.
  4. The digital restoration is milled using the PlanMill from a ceramic block.
  5. The restoration is glazed and stained to provide the ultimate match the patient’s own teeth.
  6. The ceramic restoration is fitted.

Total Treatment Time 1.5 hours

And the best news … in order to cover the costs of the PlanFIT system you only have to be doing 2 crowns per week!

Microscopes for every application?

Microscopes have redefined the concept of visualisation, particularly in the field of endodontics but recently more generally within all dental applications. Microscopes are now recognised as an essential element within the surgery, a piece of equipment which enhances the quality of the work, aesthetic outcome and long-term dental health of the patient.

Over the past 70 years microscopes have become integral to numerous medical fields including dental where they are now used for all types of dental treatments.

  • Endodontics
  • Restorative Dentistry
  • Implantology
  • Periodontics
  • General Dentistry

Magnification can be set according to the treatment, expanding diagnostic options due to better sight and lighting. Seiler’s range of microscopes enhance visualisation and allow you to better see the regions of interest and consistently provide the best diagnosis and treatment.

Let’s Talk Practice Spotlight

The Limes 

Dr Salim Ismail talks us through his latest practice refurbishment

Here at The Limes, our practice philosophy is based around happiness. We want patients to be happy with every aspect of their visit and that’s why we took the extra effort and time to plan our refurbishment, expand the practice and invest in the very best equipment, so ultimately, we can offer the best patient experience.

It was a no brainer for me to choose Planmeca when deciding on equipment having been happy with their equipment previously. I love the design of the chair, it’s not bulky and I love the clean lines. The equipment works and it works well. When considering the preferred partner for the refurbishment I decided on DB Dental. I felt the attention to detail from Gareth, competitive quote and follow up support was brilliant. We are committed to offering the best of every aspect of dentistry, with this in mind we decided to opt for a digital workflow throughout the practice and invest in the Planmeca FIT system which allows us to offer Same Day Dentistry to our patients.
