No matter what the issue is, our dentist in Widnes will be able to give you the best of care. Whether it's an emergency, preventive care, or cosmetic dentistry, our expertise and track record of over 30 years can be applied to your dental needs.
Tooth damage or infection is a common occurrence and can present with or without pain. Root canals are often needed to remedy this, to eliminate bacteria and save the tooth. The procedure is accomplished by making an opening in the crown of the infected tooth and removing the infected or diseased pulp. Once cleaned, it is filled with a particular material to prevent reinfection. Then, a permanent filling is placed on the crown.
If your tooth has been chipped, broken, or even knocked out, you need to see a dental practitioner as soon as you can to save it. Here, we have a set system in dealing with emergencies, which includes a number of items.
A thorough examination of the damaged area.
If any severe pain, numbing to the affected region.
The area affected cleaned thoroughly to prevent infection.
The area will be restored either temporarily or permanently depending on the extent of the damage.
Sometimes extraction of the tooth can be necessary. In these cases, implants will be discussed.
Any of the following ailments count as an emergency at our dental practice: toothache, broken or lost crowns, chips, fillings, abscesses, trauma, avulsed teeth, and face swelling. However, if you feel that there is something we haven't mentioned above that you consider an emergency, don't hesitate to call.
We believe that preventive care is essential for maintaining oral health. As an example, for the hard to reach plaque hiding behind teeth, you may need a bit more than just brushing. To address this, why not see our dental hygienist who focuses on precisely that - plaque which is difficult to remove during normal dental care at home.
A typical dental hygiene appointment involves an assessment of your teeth and gums to determine your risk factors and how much plaque you'll need removed. Afterwards, the scaling and polishing part of the examination will commence, by using special dental tools and pastes to clean your gums and teeth. Finally, one of the essential elements of the appointment is education on how to look after your teeth, because we want you to realise your best smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is about achieving that straight white smile. Although appearance is usually the reason why most patients opt for cosmetic dentistry, there are functional benefits too. For example, orthodontics focuses on straightening the patient's teeth. The word orthodontics comes from the Greek word ‘ortho’, which means straight, and ‘dontos’ meaning teeth. Besides a confident smile, having straight teeth means that you will be able to maintain better oral hygiene. When teeth are crooked and crowded, they are harder to clean, so plaque builds, causing a risk of infection.
Many other cosmetic treatments can help you achieve the smile you want, such as porcelain veneers, white fillings, inlays and onlays. Whatever your needs, the dentist in Widnes Dental Practice has got you covered.
