Our dentist in Widnes provides general treatments, preventive treatments and cosmetic treatments tailored to your requirements.
Emergency dental treatments
At Widnes Dental Practice we are available for all your dental emergencies. Whether this may be sudden toothache, lost or broken crowns, a broken or chipped tooth, or you have had your teeth knocked out, it is essential that you book an appointment with your dentist in Widnes immediately. We will carry out an examination of your teeth and mouth to help reduce any risk of infection. Then after this we will either temporarily or permanently restore the damage to your tooth, preserving the remaining and surrounding dental structures. Of course we will discuss further treatment which may be necessary to prevent any further issues or complications, which may occur if the issue or injury is left untreated.
Maintaining dental hygiene
We recommend that you book regular appointments with the dentist to ensure that your mouth and teeth are always at their optimal condition. Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for clean, strong teeth, a beautiful smile, healthy gums, fresh breath and the prevention of many uncomfortable and detrimental dental issues. It is essential for your general well being. We also provide hygienist appointments, which we recommend regularly, involving cleaning, polishing and scaling at a professional level that we are unable to achieve at home by ourselves. If this is carried out regularly it can help reduce your risk of developing most dental issues.
Root canal therapy
We at Widnes Dental Practice provide root canal therapy, if you are experiencing issues with the dental pulp which can be found at the centre of your tooth. This treatment is used to treat infection of the dental pulp, which can occur as a result of many factors. Tooth decay, damaged or leaky fillings and other issues with your teeth, which may have occurred as a result of an accident or trauma can result in bacterial infection of your dental pulp. This can result in many unpleasant symptoms which include pain, sensitivity, difficulty with biting or chewing, swelling of the gums and, if left untreated, it can even result in tooth loss. Root canal therapy involves removing the bacteria from the root canal system to attempt to preserve the tooth which may otherwise have to be removed. If the bacteria can be successfully removed, then the root canal can be filled and the tooth will be sealed with either a filling or a crown. Here at Widnes Dental Practice, your comfort and wellbeing is our priority, and this treatment is usually carried out under local anaesthetic, to ensure you are comfortable and at ease during the process.
