16 Tuesday November 1 2016 HEALTH & BEAUTY PEGASUS POST Looking after your teeth Visiting the dentist is often put off yet looking after our teeth helps preserve them and assists our overall health. Dr Keith Chiang has operated the Fendalton Dental Surgery since relocating from the CBD in 2011. He has special interest in complex oral surgical procedures and intravenous sedation, whilst looking after his wonderful patients with general dentistry skills. Due to increased demand for cosmetic and geriatric dentistry, Keith approached Dr Zohnia McNeill, an experienced clinician with a proven clinical track record, to join his team. “Zohnia is a professional with extremely high standards and is very precise; something her patients appreciate, along with her relaxed friendly manner,” says Keith. Zohnia and Keith will focus on their specific and passion-driven dentistry niches. Zohnia will work on the cosmetic side of the practice, looking after general checkups and dentistry work including partial and full denture work, root canal treatments, implant crowns, porcelain crowns, bridges and veneers. Keith will concentrate on his special area interest: surgical procedures including impacted wisdom teeth, correction of soft and hard tissue lesions, surgical implant placements, and providing intravenous sedation where required. Patients, who decide it is time to transition to dentures, perhaps due to extensive tooth loss or long-term gum disease, will benefit from both Zohnia and Keith’s skills. Zohnia will make the new dentures then Keith will surgically extract the teeth and deliver the dentures so patients need not go elsewhere for this service. The warm friendly team welcomes you to come and experience expert clinical care. Working alongside Keith and Zohnia are two fully qualified dental assistants, Helen and Megan with Aysha on reception as the patient’s care co-ordinator. The warm friendly team welcomes you to come and experience expert clinical care.

PEGASUS POST Tuesday November 1 2016 17 SENIOR LIVING Replacement dentures now just a phone call away with 3D technology Keeping up-to-date with the latest techniques in denture technology is one of the keys to the success of John Batchelor’s company, Duchenne Dental, so it’s no surprise that John has been closely following the development of 3D printing of dentures and dental implants. “I knew it was something that would be of enormous benefit to our patients,” he explains. “When I was confident in the advanced technology and its affordability, then I knew it would be a good option.” His research took him to the bi-annual International Dental Show in Cologne and to some of the world’s leading dental and IT companies, helping John decide that the timing was right to bring this technology to New Zealand. “I formed relationships with leading companies in dental scanning technology and 3D printing in several countries. We now have the technology and expertise to ensure our clients here in New Zealand receive world class treatment and products.” Unexpected client benefits Duchenne now 3D print all their chrome frames and partial bases, and have also started using 3D print technology in full upper and lower dentures. John says there are numerous benefits to Duchenne’s clients, including providing patients with a quicker and more economical service, and dentures and implants that are more accurate and personalised. “A bonus is that all models are stored digitally so wherever you are, if you need a replacement denture or tooth, we can quickly and easily print one. And in many cases patients don’t even need to visit the surgery!” Duchenne Dental has manufactured over 300 partial dentures and both they and their patients are delighted with the results. for more information phone tristan pattinson or John batchelor on (03)2604188 Aspire Canterbury Aspire Canterbury offers support, advice and resources to older people and those with impairments, their families and caregivers.
