AWARD WINNING ECO DENTAL SURGERY THAT DOESN’T COST THE EARTH
Most people are interested to know how an Eco-Dentist differs from a normal clinic. Well, at Bytes of Byron they have simply made it their mission to operate in the most sustainable way possible.
They believe living in harmony with our environment is our collective responsibility and have been mindful to keep their impact on the environment to a minimum.
The clinic considers the way it accesses and uses power, the materials used in everything from construction to the disposal of waste. In terms of the dentistry they exclusively use BPA free white fillings and have special procedures for safely removing old mercury fillings.
WHAT MAKES US AN ECO-DENTISTRY?
• Wherever possible, we choose environmentally-sound options e.g. using digital radiography which has 80% less radiation
• We implement environmentally friendly office practices, to re-use,
re-purpose and recycle whatever we can
• Try to reduce the clinics environmental impact wherever possible such as using biodegradable and carbon neutral products
• Our steam steralisation replaces chemical based steralisation so no chemical residues remain
• We support suppliers who offer environmentally-sound products and services
• Amalgum separators are used when removing mercury fillings so that no mercury goes into the water supply.

THE DIGITAL SMILE – THE FUTURE IS NOW
HOW TECHNOLOGY IS CHANGING
The Digital Age continues to evolve faster than ever
and is making its way into every facet of our lives
and Dentistry is no exception. So what is changing?
Digital Smile Design (DSD)
Achieving the perfect smile is the holy grail
for Dentists and now digital technology is
helping us to produce incredible results beyond
conventional dentistry. Using software, we are
now able to create a smile that truly compliments
the proportions of the face and is meticulously
designed using photographs and videos of the
patient. This allows us to create a beautiful smile
that harmonises with physical characteristics and
people’s personalities. It also allows us to plan each
customised design with the patient so they can see
the outcome and results prior to moving forward
with definitive treatment. If you’ve been dreaming
of your ideal smile then DSD is truly a revolutionary
step in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental implants are great for permanently
replacing missing teeth. They are simply a screwlike
structure with an artificial tooth that look and
function like a real tooth. The digital revolution
is providing dentists the tools to virtually place
implants to ensure long lasting, predicable results.
By taking a C.T scan of the jaw we can plan the
whole implant case using specially designed
software. This ever-improving technology ensures
that Implants can be placed in a simpler, less
invasive way providing optimal aesthetics and
function for our patients.
Traditional dentistry if changing faster than ever
and Bytes of Byron is dedicated to embracing
new technologies that can improve our level of
treatment and benefit our patients.
