Routine Family Dentistry
Our focus is always on preventative dentistry, which is all about maintaining good oral health, so we encourage regular dental visits. Your mouth is the window to the overall health of your body. Early indicators of many diseases including diabetes, strokes and heart conditions are obvious in the mouth at an early stage and this is something we always monitor as part of our dental examinations.
Your routine dental examination will include:
- Looking for evidence of new decay
- A mouth cancer check
- Discussing any areas of sensitivity and discomfort with you
- Assessing the stability of existing dental work
- Examining signs of gum disease and gingivitis
- Discussing and advising on your dental hygiene
Our hygienists are highly skilled and cater for all aspects of gum care including treatment of gum disease. We also offer an airflow polishing service to remove stains and brighten your smile.
Airflow polishing is an ideal way to remove discolouration such as tea, coffee and red wine stains from teeth . When carried out in conjunction with your hygienist cleaning visit staining can thoroughly be removed and teeth restored to their natural whiteness.
Airflow polishing uses a jet of water and fine powder to give instant results.
We offer both cost effective silver amalgam fillings and cosmetic tooth coloured fillings.
