We recommend attending a routine dental examination every 6 months. At a check-up, we will assess the general health of your teeth, gums and any existing dentistry work you’ve had done (fillings, implants, etc). This is important to check for the early signs of tooth decay or gum disease.
After your initial consultation as a new patient, you will be offered the service of a scale and polish with one of our dental hygienists for £40. We recommend having a scale and polish carried out regularly to remove any harmful bacteria from around the bases of the teeth, as well as cleaning and polishing your teeth. Your dentist or hygienist will recommend to you how often they feel you should have the treatment carried out.
If you seek emergency treatment, it is important to ring us as early as possible during the day to increase your chances of being seen by a dentist that day. We keep appointments free every day for emergency cases but these can be taken up quickly.
If your emergency occurs out of hours, please ring us and you will be given instructions on the answer phone message.
Fillings are used to repair your teeth after the result of tooth decay or breakage. The decayed area of the tooth will be removed and replaced with the material which will make the filling. There are many different types of material used to make up a filling but your dentist will advise you on the best options for you.
Taking your child for regular dental check-ups is just as important as brushing their teeth on a daily basis. You should start bringing your child to see a dentist as soon as their first tooth comes through but we also recommend bringing them along to your own appointments as soon as possible so they can get used to the sights and smells of the practice.
Attending regular check-ups can help to detect early signs of future problems and help to prevent them. At Oak Mount, our staff will try our very best to ensure your child feels relaxed during their trip and also inform you about your child’s teeth.
