Preventative Dentistry

This is the core of our practice and regular attendance for examinations gives us the opportunity to identify and treat potential problems early before causing pain or further deterioration.
We have the services of a hygienist who treats gum disease and educates patients in the correct way to clean their teeth to prevent further problems arising.
Fluoride varnish and fissure sealants are important preventative tools for children with developing teeth and can help prevent tooth decay.

 

Emergency Treatment

With the best preventative treatment in the world, dental pain can still arise unexpectedly. We hold emergency appointments each day from 12 noon to treat such pain. The aim of these appointments is to relieve the symptoms of pain and subsequent visits maybe required to complete treatment and extra charges may be incurred, please see treatment charges.
Emergency Appointments are only avaliable to book on the day you ring and you will be triaged.

To book an emergency appointment please call the surgery at 9am.

Orthodontic Treatment This is treatment that involves realigning teeth to create a more functional and aesthetic tooth structure and usually involves the use of fixed or removable braces.We now can offer private invisalign treatment.

Removal of Teeth Sometimes it is necessary to remove teeth, this occurs when they are broken or infected and it is no longer viable to repair what is there.

Restoration If teeth have become damaged due to decay, fractures or wear they may be restored using a filling. A variety of different materials are used for fillings depending on where in the mouth it is. More advanced restorations may include inlays, onlays or crowns.

Prosthetics Where teeth have been lost prosthetic may be used to fill the space to maintain function and appearance of the mouth. Prosthetics may include dentures, bridges or implants. Ask your dentist about what options are available both on the NHS and privately.
