Worried about a loose tooth? Suffering with sensitive teeth? Your dental check-up is the perfect time to share your concerns
Up to 20 minutes
Our front of house team will meet you on arrival, making you feel safe and relaxed before your appointment.
Your dentist will take you through to the dental surgery where you’ll meet the dental nurse. You’ll be asked to sit back comfortably in our dental chair.
Your dentist will ask if you’ve had any problems since your last check-up and then carry out your dental examination. The dental nurse will help out as required and will also be taking notes.
After your check-up your dentist will explain everything clearly so that you understand your own dental health. If they have any treatment recommendations you will be able to discuss this, and there will be time to ask any questions you might have.
A dental check-up is classed as general dentistry and is something we recommend having twice a year. During your dental check-up, your dentist will examine your teeth, mouth and gums to ensure everything is looking as healthy as it should be. If any problems are spotted, your dentist will be able to discuss these and explain the treatment options available.
By attending every six months for a dental check-up, your dental team will be able to spot and manage dental problems before they become bigger, more expensive, concerns. Serious dental problems can lead to pain, discomfort, and even tooth loss… something we aim to avoid at Pennington Dental.
During every dental check-up your dental team will make sure that you are as relaxed and comfortable as possible. If you have any special requirements, we are always more than happy to help so please do let us know. We can play your favourite music to help you relax, provide a blanket to ensure you are warm enough – nothing is too much trouble!
We recommend having a dental hygiene appointment alongside your dental check-up every six months. Your dental hygienist will check your teeth for plaque build-up and also your gums for signs of inflammation and gum disease.
They will use special tools to remove the plaque that builds up in certain areas of your mouth, which will leave your mouth feeling clean, fresh and sparkling. At the end of your appointment, your hygienist will share details of areas in your mouth that require more attention during cleaning – we all have them! – and suggest tools and techniques that may make it easier.
In some cases, where gum disease is present, your hygienist may recommend more frequent visits. This will allow us to monitor concerns and treat any problems.
If your dentist spots a crack or cavity during your dental check-up, they may suggest treating it with a filling. This will repair the damage and ensure your tooth remains happy and healthy for the long term.
Dental fillings are one of the most common dental treatments and are usually carried out under local anaesthetic to ensure that you are comfortable and completely pain free throughout.
We have a choice of treatment options depending on which tooth is affected. We are able to offer both silver and tooth-coloured (white) fillings and we will be able to discuss the merits of both options during your dental check-up.
Sometimes teeth are slightly more damaged due to decay or trauma and a simple filling won’t be enough to repair the problem. In these cases, a dental crown may be a better solution. This is where your dentist will remove any decayed areas and then use the remaining section of the healthy tooth as a post. This will house a crown that will securely fit on top. Not only will your crown function just like a natural tooth, it will be highly aesthetic too, ensuring your smile is seamless.
If you have a missing tooth or teeth it is important to think about a replacement. Filling the gap in your smile isn’t just about aesthetics, it’s also about function and overall dental health.
A missing tooth can cause problems with eating and even speech, but leaving the gap can also mean that your remaining teeth begin to shift and move. This can cause further problems with your bite. In some cases we would recommend dental implants, but alternatively a dental bridge may be a better solution. This is where the replacement tooth is anchored to crowns fitted to the teeth either side of the gap, thus creating a bridge!
Root canal therapy is required when a tooth root becomes infected. While the problem itself will cause a lot of pain, the treatment for it will not.
Root canal treatment involves carefully drilling a hole that allows us to reach the infected area. We then thoroughly clean it with specialist tools to ensure the infection is completely removed. The hole will then be filled to seal it and in most cases a crown will be placed to repair the broken tooth.
During every root canal procedure we will always use local anaesthetic to ensure you don’t feel a thing, and once the treatment is complete you will be out of pain, which is a wonderful feeling!
Send us your details and we will contact you to arrange a date and time for your appointment
