Routine Check-ups

Most people are not comfortable attending their local dentist even for a routine check up. I aim to make every encounter positive and enjoyable. You must leave feeling listened to, confident and part of a special practice - but most of all excited about your next visit!

During your health review I will listen to your concerns and carry out a full oral health assessment. I check on your teeth, gums and carry out a cancer screen. X-rays, scans and photos may also be taken. Leading onto formulating a treatment plan and provision of a full breakdown in costs.

Dental Hygiene

Good dental hygiene is an important part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums and a great looking smile because brushing and flossing alone will not remove those stubborn stains and calcified deposits.

  • Removes the build-up of plaque and calculus with thorough teeth scaling

  • Airflow – The latest Air Polishing Stain Removal System

  • Helps prevent infection

  • Helps to prevent gum disease and tooth decay

  • Receive advice on maintaining good oral hygiene

Emergency Appointments

Accidents and emergencies will happen and it is not uncommon for both adults and children to hurt their mouths, chip a tooth or even knock it out completely.

Do not try to open bottles with teeth, bite or tear at resistant substances. Sports injuries are one of the common ways to damage teeth and mouthguards are strongly advisable for both adults and children who play any kind of contact sports.

Dental Fillings/ Restoration

Decay of tooth enamel is caused by certain acid producing bacteria that attack the tooth surface. Once the enamel is broken the tooth can no longer repair itself. Continuing decay undermines the inner tooth and attacks the nerve causing toothache.

Caries is a term commonly used for tooth decay. Early signs may be a chalky white spot which indicates demineralisation of the enamel. A brown spot may indicate a further breakdown which may turn into a cavity. From this stage the cavity cannot repair itself and will require a filling.

Restoration includes; composite (white fillings), amalgam (silver fillings), gold fillings, inlays/onlays, crowns and veneers.
