New Patient Consultations
- On arrival at the Practice you will be greeted by our receptionist. You will be asked to fill out a medical history form which will enable us to meet your medical needs and provide the appropriate and best care possible to yourself.
- Our dental nurse will take you through to the surgery where our dentist will talk through your medical history and any dental problems you may be experiencing.
- You will then have a routine examination with our dentist who will record your present oral health condition.
- Our dentist will take you through to our digital x-ray room for an x-ray.
- You will then be given a treatment plan if any treatment is required or you will be given a recall date for your next routine examination.
We have a strong focus on preventive care to help you and your family to avoid dental problems and maintain healthy teeth and gums. All our patients are encouraged to see our dentists regularly for routine examinations, so that if there are any potential problems we can spot them and treat them at an early stage. Our dentist does a great job in helping to combat gum disease through practical oral healthcare advice and regular professional cleaning. Gum disease is very common and reasonably easy to keep under control, but if left untreated it can eventually cause the loss of teeth. Our dentist usually does a professional clean at routine examinations.
- Fissure sealants - fissure sealants are applied to the pits and fissures to help protect vulnerable back teeth.
- Composite fillings - Composite is a tooth coloured filling material. When teeth become decayed the decay needs to be removed because the decay will spread rapidly through a tooth and will eventually reach the pulp chamber resulting in nerve death.
- Cerec restorations - These are best for aesthetic and strength. Please see our cerec webpage.
Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment is a necessary procedure carried out in teeth that have become damaged by decay, infection or trauma. If untreated the tooth could cause reoccurring abscesses, pain and even damage other teeth.
- The pulp (nerve and blood vessels) are removed during a root canal treatment.
- Once the pulp has been successfully removed and any infection has cleared the root canals are cleaned, shaped and then tightly packed with a natural rubber called 'gutta percha, this prevents any further infection.
- Further treatment such as internal bleaching, veneer or crown work can be carried out if you desire to restore the appearance of the tooth, and safe guard against tooth fracture.
- Extraction is an alternative to root canal treatment.
