Dental Implant Planning


We work with both Private Consultants and NHS Trusts to provide imaging and surgical planning solutions across the UK.

Technology in dentistry is evolving at an incredible rate, and at Cavendish Imaging we pride ourselves on being innovators of this technology.
By using state of the art software, we can now meticulously plan your dental implant treatments with accuracy and efficiency.

By integrating a prosthetic driven digital workflow and typically following simple steps we are able to achieve a powerful and unique method to plan your guided implant treatments from restoration to surgical guide manufacturing.

It allows Implant Planning and Surgical Guide design with a multidimensional and detailed method whilst maintaining simplicity and ease of use.


Our scan volumes extend from the very small (4cm), for high resolution imaging of localised lesions, to very large (17cm). Cone Beam CT is ideal for exceptionally detailed visualisation of bony structures. Our surface scanner technology allows for the radiation-free registration of facial contour and appearance. Please note that where detailed investigation of the soft tissues is required, multi-slice CT or MRI may be preferred.

Virtual Modelling

We are able to work with any CT or MRI scan data to provide virtual 3D reconstructions of patient anatomy. Using various software platforms we can manipulate this “virtual anatomy” to simulate, or monitor the course of surgery, e.g. using mirroring to replicate resected anatomy or plan reconstruction.

Cavendish offer a variety of conventional 2D radiography, Cone Beam CT and radiation-free 3D surface scanning technologies for diagnostics and planning purposes. Please check the details of the equipment available at each Cavendish Imaging centre.
