General dentistry in Berkshire
General dentistry involves the diagnosing, preventing and treating of common dental conditions of the teeth and gums. Most dental practices these days practice preventive dentistry, aiming to stop condition like tooth decay and gum disease before they develop into serious oral threats. At Old Windsor in Berkshire, we believe that prevention is cure, therefore, we advise our patients to visit the practice at least twice a year.
Regular check-ups and cleanings will keep your teeth healthy and keep serious problems at bay. Our practice offers a number of general dentistry treatments from root canal therapy to emergency dental care. We also cater for pregnant women at every stage of their pregnancy.
Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that is carried out when the living tissue in the tooth is infected and cannot be saved. Root canal treatment helps clean the infected part of the tooth and fill it with special materials that will seal it and keep away plaque and bacteria. It is not a preventive treatment, but it can help save your tooth and keep infection at bay.
Emergency dental care
Even if we take good care of our teeth, sometimes accidents happen and they are usually accompanied by a lot of pain and discomfort. Visiting the dentist as soon as possible after an accident involving your teeth is really important for your oral health. For instance, if you have knocked out a tooth, the sooner you visit the dentist, the better chances you have of saving it. At our practice we offer appointments for all dental emergencies from toothache to tooth and jaw trauma. Our experienced dentists will take care of your injuries and help you avoid additional dental complications in the future.
Oral care for pregnant women
At our practice, we also offer specialised dental care for pregnant women. Pregnancy can be really exciting and stressful at the same time, but we are here to take the stress away. If you are pregnant it is really important to visit the dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups. Your dentist will ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and you are not in danger of developing a special kind of gum disease that is caused by pregnancy hormones.
