Need an NHS Dentist? Look No Further
If you have been looking for a great NHS dentist in Southend then your search is over as Southend Dental Care is currently taking on new NHS patients. NHS dentistry is a great way to get essential dental care for an extremely affordable price.
When you come to see our NHS dentist in Southend you can have a complete check-up as well as dental x-rays if required and a scale and polish if needed. NHS dentistry also covers preventative dental care which includes an application of fluoride varnish and the use of fissure sealants.
Preventative Dental Care under the NHS
Fluoride varnish is a great way to harden tooth enamel and can be very effective in helping to prevent future tooth decay. Treatment is quick and non-invasive as the fluoride varnish is simply painted onto your newly cleaned teeth and left to penetrate for a few hours or even overnight before you can brush it off. Fissure sealants are used to protect the chewing surfaces of back teeth. These teeth surfaces often need to be filled as they are particularly vulnerable to tooth decay. This is because these surfaces are often quite intricate, with deep fissures and grooves that are tricky to keep clean with a toothbrush. Fissure sealants seal these surfaces with a special flowable plastic material, creating a surface that is smooth and easy to clean but which won’t interfere with your bite.
Get Advice on How to Look after Your Teeth and Gums at Home
Our Southend dentist can also chat to you about better ways to look after your teeth and gums at home and they may suggest using a different toothbrush or floss and can show you how to use interdental brushes to clean in between your teeth. We do take preventative dentistry very seriously and of course questions about dental care are always encouraged.
Get Treatment to Restore or Replace Missing Teeth
Our NHS dentist in Southend can provide treatment to restore teeth that may have become infected or decayed with procedures such as fillings and root canal therapy and crowns. We can also provide tooth extractions if there is no hope of saving a tooth. Under the NHS you can also replace missing teeth with dentures or bridges.
The nice thing about visiting our dental practice is that we can provide both private and NHS dentistry. Even though you may be registered with our NHS dentist in Southend, you can still choose to pay for some treatments privately while still receiving your routine dental care under the NHS. For example if you wish to have any cosmetic dentistry in Southend or are interested in advanced treatments such as dental implants, then we can definitely chat to you about the additional costs involved.
NHS dentistry is a great way of accessing top quality preventative and routine dental care, helping to preserve your natural teeth for as long as possible.
