In the past, a trip to the dentist has, unfortunately, been an unpleasant experience for many. For many reasons, lots of us will avoid a return trip or simply not visit the dentist unless absolutely necessary.
Today a dental check-up is a refreshingly different experience. The modern focus is on prevention rather than ‘cure’ with regular dental checkups, hygiene services and improved education regarding oral health and diet all contributing towards the avoidance of more expensive, involved and lengthy treatments.
Gone are the uncomfortable and frightening surgeries of old with unpleasant dentists and scary tools on display. Modern surgeries are bright, comfortable and relaxed with a caring yet skilled team of dentists, hygienists, therapists and nurses all working hard to meet your needs.
Modern treatments have come on in leaps and bounds with many now tailored to the individual. Whether you are looking to maintain a healthy mouth or completely rebuild your smile, there is sure to be a way to help you.
Nervous patients can rest assured they will be accommodated wherever possible. Needles can now be avoided with the use of numbing gels and sedation is available if required.
Many surgeries now offer refreshments while others play music or have TV screens on the ceiling to help you relax. Some even have playrooms for young children!
With more and more people seeking the best service, the highest quality care and an ever increasing range of treatments, surgeries are becoming more forward thinking in their approach.
A good dentist aims to build and maintain a positive, long-term relationship with you and your family. Whether you are in need of treatment or advice, they will always endeavour to help you maintain a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile for life.
