Looking for an NHS Dentist in Watton? We Can Help
Are you looking for an NHS dentist in Watton? If so look no further as Clarence House Dental Care is now accepting new NHS patients so why not give us a call to find out more? NHS dental care is a great way to get access to affordable treatment and you’ll be able to visit a dentist in Watton at regular intervals for check-ups and a scale and polish if required.
Why are Regular Check-ups so Vital?
Regular check-ups are the easiest and most cost-effective way to keep your smile looking great. You are far less likely to suffer any dental problems or to require an emergency dentist in Watton. This is because your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and oral tissues for any early signs of disease, including tooth decay and gum disease, as well as any changes to your oral tissues that might require a closer investigation. Any signs of decay are soon easily treated and it may even be possible to re-harden the tooth enamel with fluoride treatments. Otherwise it will hopefully just be a matter of filling a small cavity, restoring your tooth to full function and preserving the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure.
Early Detection of Gum Disease
Gum disease is a real problem and is the main reason why teeth are lost too soon. It is an insidious disease as it can often cause very few, if any symptoms in the early stages and may go undetected until it has become chronic. When gum disease is advanced, it will destroy not only the gums, but also the other structures surrounding your teeth including bone and ligaments that help hold them in their sockets. Chronic gum disease cannot be completely cured but will require on-going treatment to keep it under control and to minimise the risk of any further damage to your gums and the bone surrounding your teeth.
What Happens If I Need More Extensive Treatment?
NHS dentistry covers all the basic treatments needed to preserve your teeth, or if necessary we can extract them but this is something we try to avoid unless there is no other choice. All fillings and root canal treatments can be carried out at a reasonable cost. We know many people think root canal treatments are something to be feared, but this therapy should be no worse than having a filling and is great for treating and saving badly infected teeth. Afterwards the teeth will be infection-free and will feel much more comfortable. The root treated tooth can then be restored with either a filling or a crown. If you require any treatment that isn’t covered by the NHS then we can always discuss this with you.
We See Emergency Patients on the Same Day
If you are a patient of ours and think you might have an infected tooth, then we urge you to come and see us as soon as you can as we are far more likely to be able to save the tooth if it is treated sooner rather than later. In addition, you can book an appointment with an emergency dentist in Watton on the same day as we will want to make you feel more comfortable as soon as possible.
