We believe that all Patients should receive continuity of dental care. This allows us to know you and your concerns for your teeth. Through carrying out regular checkups and hygiene appointments we ensure prevention of any problems that may otherwise damage your Oral Health.
During your oral health check we Microscopically examine teeth for tooth decay, Gum Disease and screen for oral cancer. Following this thorough check we can formulate a treatment plan tailor made for you to ensure optimum health. We will also advise you on a thorough maintenance routine to avoid further future treatment.
During your Health check we may take digital x-rays which only have 10% of the radiation of traditional x-rays. This ensures that we can see all aspects of the tooth and root and formulate a true diagnosis.
We are aware that dental emergencies can occur at any time and Registered patients with an Emergency can be seen by Mr Siswick on the same weekday. We pride ourselves on being able to offer our patients emergency dental advice and prompt treatment if required, 365 days a year between the hours of 8 am and 10 pm.
In the event that we find decay present, we will advise you of the best course of treatment to restore your teeth back to their full health. We use the most current methods and materials to restore broken or decayed teeth.
Root canal treatments:
A root treatment is required if the decay in a tooth has caused an inferior or irreversible change in the nerve tissue of a tooth.
The treatment involves the removal of the nerve tissue, cleaning and shaping of the space which the nerve tissue occupied and the resulting space is then sealed.
The treatment takes longer than a normal filling but is no more uncomfortable and can be achieved in one visit, or the treatment divided between two for your convenience. Such a procedure will leave the tooth tender for a few days following treatment.
Occasionally, the best solution for a tooth, that has been badly fractured or has a large infection present is to remove it. We try to make this experience as pleasant and as pain free as we can and can offer same day bridgework or implants so we can keep your smile intact.
Cold Sore Policy
Please be aware that if you have developed a cold sore and have an appointment with either the dentist or hygienist you will be asked to re-book.
When cold sores develop they tend to crack and bleed at the slightest touch and they are highly contagious. With the aerosol generated equipment that we now use there is a chance that the virus from a newly developed sore can become airborne. For this reason we ask all patients to re-book their appointments when their sore has disappeared.
We have this does not cause any inconvenience but we are only thinking of the health and safety of our staff and other patients. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
