Why do I need to go to the dentist regularly?

Regular check-ups can catch problems before they become major issues in the mouth. Generally, dentists recommend their patients to visit them every six months. For patients with certain oral risks, and those with high-risk factors for periodontal disease, dentists will often recommend more frequent visits to address these specific issues.

Why is tooth ache worse at night time?

Most people suffer from dental pain at night due to the position in which they are laying down, as blood rushes to the head and the pain or swelling in the tooth increases. To avoid this pain, we advise visiting the dentist as they will be able to take X-Rays and provide suitable treatment.

If I go to A&E with tooth ache will they treat me?

Unfortunately, toothache is not classed as a life threatening emergency so they will not be able to treat you.

However, if you have facial swelling that is affecting your ability to breathe then we advise you to visit A&E.

How to get emergency dental treatment on the NHS?

If you are registered with a NHS dentist you may be able to get a dentist appointment at your own dentist, however it may not be on the same day. Dental practices generally close at 5 pm so to get an NHS emergency dentist appointment may be difficult.
Out of hours NHS do provide emergency appointments but have a very strict criteria such as persistent bleeding and difficulty in breathing or swallowing due to swelling.

Is it true that electric toothbrushes are better than manual ones?

Well, it’s not that simple! While electric toothbrushes can be more effective at removing plaque and promoting good oral hygiene, it ultimately depends on your brushing technique and consistency. You should follow the instructions given by your dentist or hygienist.

What is the advantage of having private dentures over NHS dentures?

More realistic coloured teeth i.e. shading and contours, clear thin plastic flexible palate. More time can be spent for consultation and fitting appointments – getting the appearance the patient desires.

Can I have Teeth whitening?

Yes, you can! Teeth whitening is generally safe when done correctly and under the supervision of a dental professional.

Can I trust those teeth whitening strips or kits that I see in ads?

Well, it’s important to do your research and make sure you’re using a reputable brand. Legally without a dental license, over-the-counter whitening products must be less effective, and can even be harmful if used incorrectly.
