Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I schedule a dental check-up and cleaning?

We recommend scheduling a dental check-up and professional cleaning every six months. However, the frequency may vary depending on your individual oral health needs. Our dentist will assess your specific situation during your initial visit and provide guidance on the appropriate schedule for your follow-up appointments.

Is fluoride treatment necessary for adults, or is it just for children?

Fluoride treatments are beneficial for both children and adults. While they are commonly associated with children’s dental care, fluoride can also help strengthen tooth enamel in adults and reduce the risk of tooth decay. Our dentist will determine if fluoride treatment is suitable for your oral health during your check-up.

What should I do in case of a dental emergency outside of regular office hours?

For dental emergencies outside of our regular office hours, please call us. Our team is available to assist you and provide guidance on how to handle the situation until you can come in for treatment.

How long does it take to recover from a root canal procedure?

The recovery time after a root canal procedure varies from person to person. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a day or two. Some may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity for a few days, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Our dentist will provide you with post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery.

Are dental implants a suitable option if I have multiple missing teeth?

Yes, dental implants can be an excellent option for replacing multiple missing teeth. They offer stability, functionality, and a natural appearance that is similar to your own teeth. Our dentist will evaluate your specific case and discuss the most appropriate treatment plan, which may include dental implants or alternative solutions such as bridges or dentures.

Had nothing but positive experiences. Learned more about dental hygiene here than any of the previous practises I've been to.

This review is for Tesh the hygenist. I honestly can't recommend Tesh more highly. He is incredibly thorough and clearly knows what he's doing. Tesh is so good I have upped the amount of times I see him to every four months rather than every six. He keeps detailed notes of every visit so he can carefully track how I'm doing and help me target specific areas of concern. As I am getting older keeping my gums healthy becomes more important as I really want to keep as many teeth as possible in old age! Tesh is always upbeat, very encouraging and also keen to know how I and my family are doing.
