Digital radiography

Clínica Cervera is equipped with latest-generation digital dental radiography equipment, which reduces the radiation dose received by the patient and provides a more precise diagnosis of the patient's condition.

Digital radiography enables image analysis using sophisticated image processing software. This means greater precision and efficacy in the diagnosis of your dental problem and in planning treatment with dental implants.

All of the X-rays are shown to the patient using IT systems, always with adequate explanation, to assist in understanding the diagnosis.

Advantages of digital radiography:
For the patient: The radiation dose is reduced by 80%, while giving clearer, more accurate images, instantly.
For the environment: No chemicals are used because there is no film developing and, because less radiation is emitted, less energy is consumed.

Disinfection and sterilisation

Because your wellbeing is our wellbeing, our advanced sterilisation system plays a key role in the quality of our care. We have all the necessary technology to guarantee that the instruments used in our treatments are totally sterile. We use a sterilisation cycle backed by regular microbiological quality controls, which guarantee that the procedures are effective and safe.


1 - Use of antiseptic detergents to remove any organic residues from the instruments.
2 - Use of thermal disinfection equipment to disinfect and dry the instruments.
3 - Instruments packaged and bagged.
4 - The bagged material is autoclaved at 121ºC for 20 minutes.
5 - The instruments are put away.
6 - Packaged instruments opened only at the time of use.


In order to verify correct operation of the entire sterilisation chain, our staff regularly perform spore culture tests. This is the best system for monitoring the effectiveness of the instrument disinfection and sterilisation processes.
All horizontal surfaces are disinfected after seeing each patient, using effective but environmentally safe products.
The clinic's staff always use gloves, face mask and safety glasses during treatments.

Sedation and anxiety control

Even though dental treatments have advanced enormously thanks to the use of high technology and new dentistry techniques, many patients are unwilling to undergo these treatments because of anxiety problems.

Clínica Cervera has pioneered the use of conscious sedation and anxiety control in dentistry in Girona. We have been offering this service since 2001, provided by a medical team specialised in anaesthesiology, which enables the patient to be safely and effectively relaxed before and during dental treatment.

Conscious sedation is an anaesthetic technique that removes the patient's tension and anxiety, inducing a state of drowsiness. As the patient is in a relaxed state, treatment is quicker and less uncomfortable. During the procedure, the patient and his or her vital signs are monitored. The patient returns to a normal condition in just 20 minutes after the appointment, and he or she can leave the clinic fully recovered.

You can ask for this service when the treatment plan is explained to you or, depending on the type of procedure, it may be suggested to you.

Operating theatre

Clínica Cervera's facilities include two modern, fully equipped operating theatres for performing oral and dental surgery. These operating theatres are directly connected to the disinfection-sterilisation rooms, reducing the risk of cross-infection by not allowing material to circulate through any other part of the clinic.

There is also a room used solely for the patient to rest before and after the procedure.
The operating theatres are equipped with an image magnification system for increased precision in our procedures, improving the results. There is also a TV screen for video conferencing, and vital sign monitoring systems for procedures requiring conscious sedation.
