- Regular visits to the dentist can help you avoid dental problems
- Your dentist can identify problems early and treat them if necessary
- Make sure you visit your dentist as and when advised
Q: Why is it important to visit the dentist regularly?
A: It is essential for you to visit the dentist in order to look after the health of your teeth and gums. Not only will you have access to great advice and treatments, your dentist will also be able to identify any problems you may be having and recommend a suitable course of action.
Q: Why can't I just visit the dentist if I'm having a problem with my teeth or gums?
A: It is important that you do not wait for problems to occur before visiting. Experiencing symptoms is often a sign that a dental or oral health problem is worsening. Leaving problems untreated can cause greater problems further down the line, so it is sensible for you to visit your dentist so that they can help pre-empt any possible dangers or concerns.
Q: How often do I have to go and see my dentist?
A: This is purely at the discretion of your dentist. For a dental professional, part of performing a routine dental examination is ascertaining how regularly an individual patient should be recommended to see the dentist. When determining your recall period, a number of factors will be considered, including your general health, any oral health concerns, and any treatments you may require or have previously had.
Q: How does seeing the dentist on the recommended basis make me any more likely to
avoid problems with my teeth and gums?
A: Your risk is reduced as you will be given access to the best advice and treatment, and complications can often be identified at an earlier stage as long as you are attending your appointments as and when you should.

- Crowns are used as a treatment for broken or heavily-restored teeth
- Usually unnoticeable and largely metal-free
- A number of different types of crown available
Q: What is the purpose of a crown?
A: A dental crown is used to cover and strengthen teeth that have been broken and/or have been heavily restored.
Q: I think I may be a suitable candidate for a crown, but I am concerned that it won't look right. Are they noticeable?
A: In the vast majority of cases, a crown is completely unnoticeable due to the fact that they are natural-looking and are also typically-metal free. We are confident that a crown will serve to dramatically improve the appearance of a broken or heavily restored tooth.
Q: I understand that there are a number of different crowns available. Which would be the most suitable for me?
A: There are indeed a number of different types of crown available, but the suitability of each and the circumstances in which they can be applied are very much dependent on factors relating to the individual patient. The best thing to do if you feel a crown would be a suitable treatment for you is to book a consultation, during which you will be advised on the best possible solution for your tooth/teeth.

- Treat tooth decay and cavities with metal-free alternative to dental amalgam
- Colour of fillings can be shaded to match the colour of your tooth or teeth
- Discreet and subtle alternative to traditional fillings
Q: I may require a filling but am worried that it will be very obvious that I have had one when people can see inside my mouth. What can I do?
A: Tooth-coloured fillings are an excellent option as they fulfil the practical purposes of the filling treatment, as well as offering a much more cosmetically-friendly result for your teeth than traditional fillings.
Q: Are these types of fillings made from amalgam?
A: No. Though traditional fillings are made from amalgam, tooth-coloured fillings are derived from a metal-free alternative.
Q: How close to the colour of my tooth can you match the filling?
A: We are able to produce superb results in matching the filling to the shade of a particular tooth. We are confident that, in the extreme majority of cases, the filling will be unnoticeable to anyone that can see your tooth/teeth.
Q: This seems like a good option for me and I would like to enquire about how I can proceed with the treatment. How can I go ahead with this?
A: This is a treatment which requires a recommendation from your dentist in order for it to be carried out. Please feel free to book your appointment with us either by registering your interest using the function on our website, or by calling us directly at the practice on 01352 753 777.
