Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

Most us feel some level of anxiety when preparing for a visit to see our dentist. For some this anxiety can be so great it can stop them visiting all together.

We want you to know that we understand this and we all have to be patients from time to time so we work hard to make your visit as pleasant and as relaxed as possible.

Elaine’s smile transformation

Happy patient of the week:

Elaine was unhappy with her upper and lower teeth and had suffered from gum disease. This lead to mobile teeth and chronic infections. After discussing her options and allowing Elaine time to reflect, we decided to replace her failing teeth with implant supported dentures. As we progressed through treatment we ensured that Elaine was suitable for implant treatment and that she was able to maintain an adequate standard of oral hygiene.

The Importance of the Dental MOTa

For those motorists amongst you, we probably use our cars every day to drive to work, do the school run and socially. We perform regular services and an MOT every year. Why? To ensure that the car is safe, efficient and it saves us costly repair bills in the long term.

Our bodies and our mouths are no different.
