Treatment Co-ordinator Consultations
Consultations with the Treatment Co-ordinator are free of charge and it is a great opportunity to discuss treatment options in a comfortable relaxed surrounding. Our specialised Treatment Co-ordinator can discuss all options with you perfect for those who are unsure of what treatment they can have or are nervous of coming to the dentist.
Oral Health Assessments (Check Up)
Your Oral Health Assessment will be performed by the dentist it is a visual exam of your mouth which includes your teeth and soft tissue areas, he/she will check each individual tooth and record any areas of concern. X-rays may need to be taken if the dentist feels this is necessary as an x-ray will help the dentist diagnose any potential or existing conditions that may require attention.
Oral Health Maintenance & Cleaning (Periodontal or Scale & Polish)
We want all patients to enjoy good oral health, to look and feel confident about showing off their smile. Our dental hygiene services are designed to prevent oral health problems and keep the teeth and gums strong and healthy. Gum disease is largely preventable, however neglecting oral hygiene can put your at risk. Visiting our hygienist can help you maintain a healthy attractive smile.
White Composite Restorations (Fillings)
Composite restorations are tooth coloured fillings in which a shade is chosen to match your own teeth. After the tooth is prepared the filling is bonded onto the area with an adhesive and a light shone onto it to set it. With this type of filling, the dentist may have to remove less of the tooth, which is obviously better.
Root Canal Treatment (Endodontic)
Root canal treatments are used when a tooth is severely decayed, this involves removing infected tissue from your tooth, cleaning it and then filling it to prevent further damage or infection and this can save a tooth that would otherwise have to be taken out. It is common for a crown to be fitted on the affected tooth after a root canal treatment.
Tooth removal (or tooth extraction) involves having one or more teeth completely removed from your mouth using a local anaesthetic. Teeth are usually removed by a dentist, but occasionally the procedure is done in hospital by a surgeon. There are several reasons why your teeth may need to be taken out. The most common reasons include. Tooth decay, gum disease, broken tooth, abscess, crowded teeth, and impacted wisdom tooth.
Dentures are sets of false teeth that can be used to replace a full set of missing teeth (a full or complete denture) or a small number of missing teeth (a partial denture). They are custom-made to fit the contours of the mouth and they are removable. Made from acrylic resin (similar to plastic) bonded to metal, dentures are designed to look and function like natural teeth. Modern dentures are comfortable, functional and lifelike, being held in place by the natural suction of the gums.
We advise all our patients to attend regular check-ups to prevent dental emergencies. However, accidents can happen and we make every effort to provide emergency care for our patients when the need arises. If it is out of hours and the surgery is not open, please call 0121 633 4100 and we will endeavour to arrange an appointment as quickly as possible.
