General Dentistry in BerkshireDental examinations

We strongly recommend all patients attend at least two check-ups and cleanings with our dentists and dental hygienists every year. This is an important step and should not be missed, even if you have generally good oral health. Common dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay can develop in such ways that patients do not realise anything is wrong until they have experienced significant damage. Our experienced dentists will identify these issues right away and provide the attention you need as soon as possible.

During your dental examination, your dentist will look into your oral health specifics with the help of digital x-rays and a visual examination. We are also happy to discuss personal goals or preferences you have for your personalised dental care, so we can provide effective recommendations. After that, our dental hygienist will thoroughly clear away plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums, leaving you with a beautiful and healthy smile.

Root canal treatment

A root canal treatment can save a tooth that otherwise would have been lost due to tooth decay or infection. Also known as an endodontic treatment, a root canal involves the removal of the infected tissue and nerve in the tooth. To ensure stability, a permanent filling is then applied. Dental crowns are also essential to protect the area from bacteria and further infection.

Prevention is better than cure

Focusing on prevention by visiting the dentist twice a year and having regular cleanings, will help you enjoy the benefits of a healthy smile. To learn more about general dentistry in Berkshire, do not hesitate to contact us today.
