Dental Clinics in Battersea
A warm and welcoming smile is important for everyone and having good teeth is also very important for our health. This is why it is recommended that you have regular dental check-ups to make sure your teeth are well looked after and so your dentist can spot any early signs of trouble that can be addressed before it becomes a major concern.
When you visit a dentist you can expect to receive patient-centred care based on your individual needs. After a thorough check-up your dentist may discover that you need some treatment, maybe to fill a cavity that has developed or to repair a chipped or broken tooth. You will be offered the best possible treatment options available so you can make an informed decision.
Most registered dental practices will offer a range of regular treatments including:
- Direct Hygienist Access
- Fillings and Inlays
- Gum Care
- Root Canal Therapy
- Teeth straightening
Most dental practices are aimed at looking after every member of the family from adults to children. Depending on the size of the practice, there may be a dentist on the team who specialises in treating children, but most practice staff are trained to treat all age groups. Children are especially welcomed and encouraged to attend regular dental check-ups and to ask questions. Dentists will help to educate children on correct brushing techniques and advise parents on creating a regular oral hygiene routine to follow to help reduce the risk of cavities.
Being scared or anxious about visiting the dentist is no laughing matter. There are a lot of people who worry about attending the dentist and although a lot of effort has been put into helping nervous patients cope better with their visits, there still remains a lot of anxiety about going for some people. Modern dentist and their support staff are experienced in helping nervous patients. They will take the time to sit and listen to your concerns and discuss the best options open to you. Whether that is explaining every procedure in detail beforehand and talking your through your treatment step by step as it happens, or having something relaxing and distracting during your treatment, such as playing your favourite music to help calm your nerves.
Each dental practice will bring together a specialist team of dentists as well as support staff such as dental hygienists, nurses, admin and reception staff. The whole team approach to the dental practice means that you will be assured of exceptional treatment and care at every stage. Every dentist wants to take the best possible care of you and wishes to deliver the goal of a healthy and confident smile.
