General And Preventative Dental Care
Keep Yourself Smiling
Your ongoing dental health is the most important thing to us. That's why we have adopted a refined preventative approach within the practice.
Many patients leave their problems, or are totally unaware of any problems until they become much more difficult to fix.
Instead we use regular routine examinations to ensure we spot any minor problems and fix them before they develop.
By addressing any dental issues we find early, we help to avoid more complicated and expensive treatments in the future. This saves you discomfort and money.
By maintaining your oral health with us, we aim to make sure you can keep smiling for years to come.
What Do We Look For In A Dental Checkup?
There are a number of factors we look for during an examination and they don't just involve teeth.
Initially we get an idea of what already exists in your mouth, whether you are missing any teeth, have any fillings or dental work and let us see if there have been any changes since your last visit.
After checking your teeth comes the gums and soft tissue checks.
During these checks, your dentist will be on the lookout for any areas that seems sore, inflamed or discoloured on your gums and cheeks. This is important, as it lets us spot anything nasty before it becomes a major problem.
These checks all add together to make sure that we can give you the full picture - helped in a large way by means of the small dedicated cameras that we use within the mouth - ensuring you aware of any problems...... before they become real problems!
How Often Should You Have A Dental Check-up?
Some very lucky people only have to visit us every 18 - 24 months, whilst others need more frequent checks every 3 months.
This all depends on how healthy your teeth and gums are, your risk of future problems and any problems you may have had in the past. Your dentist will always let you know what time-frame is best for you.
Generally, the lower your risk of dental problems, the longer you can wait before your next check-up.
Access To A Wider Range Of Dental Treatments
At Herbrandston and Narberth Dental Health Practices we offer a wide range of treatments: many of which are not offered by NHS dentists or private dentists without specific skills.
Many of our dentists have additional qualifications above that of a general practitioner allowing a wide range of advanced treatments. Things like Dental Implants, Orthodonticsand advanced Restorative Dentistry are all carried out within the practice.
This means that you will be seen by the dentist best suited to provide your treatment, something that makes us unique among dentists. We are able to keep all treatments in-house, without the need for referrals or long waiting lists.
But don't worry you will always see your preferred dentist for routine treatment, ensuring there is always a friendly face when you visit.
Our main aim is to provide you with relaxing, pain and trouble free dentistry.
We pride ourselves on spotting trouble before it even starts and for caring for your dental health in a friendly and welcome atmosphere.
Our dental team believes that people should have healthy mouths and attractive teeth for a lifetime.
Through routine dental checkups and expert advice and care, we always aim to keep your teeth in their best condition, so you can keep on smiling.
The prevention of dental and gum disease is far less costly than the repeated cycle of breakdown and repair, and certainly more enjoyable for all concerned. We believe that compromising on procedures or materials for the sake of economy can result in higher costs in terms of time, effort and discomfort. Our tailored approach to providing you with the dental care you need means you can enjoy high quality private dentistry in a welcoming atmosphere to ensure long term oral health. - Dr Mark Boulcott BDS MFGDP RCS (UK)
