With the surgery closed we understand that you might experience a dental problem that may need some attention. In this post we have put together some of the common problems that you may be suffering and how you could self manage them during the COVID-19 crisis.
Make sure that those important dental checks aren’t forgotten. Life’s busy, and the truth is that you’re not going to spend lots of time worrying about dental health (however much we’d like you to). It’s really easy for dental care to get lost in the shuffle of everyday life, but with our help it’s just as easy to make sure that you don’t come to grief!
All it takes to stop most dental problems in their tracks is a regular check-up. Because we’re not a huge faceless company, this isn’t going to be an ordeal: we’ll do our best to ensure that you have a regular dentist who you always see. No worries about having to talk to total strangers!
Making your dental care easy and affordable
Another reason why you might have let things slip is simply because it’s too difficult to do otherwise: some dentists have long waiting lists and others will tell you that they’re just too busy to see you! If these same dentists then tell you that you should have visited them earlier it can be quite off-putting. We’re always happy to take on new patients – don’t worry if you haven’t been to a dentist in a while, we know it happens! Finance is also available to make things financially easier.
Dentists suitable for the family. It’s an unfortunate truth that many of us pick up a fear of going to the dentist as children. Not really surprising when you consider how unfriendly some dental surgeries can seem to a child. We don’t want this to happen any more than you. We’ve always kept a level head about how we interact with our patients. The atmosphere you’ll find at the practice is friendly, relaxed and caring – perfect for adults and children alike. This is the best kind of environment if you’re going to come in for regular check-ups!

We all know that stress is bad for us and we should try and avoid it but in today’s busy lifestyle it can be hard to avoid it completely, life can get very stressful as we try to juggle everything. We all know about the many stress related medical conditions such as heart disease and anxiety but did you know that stress can have an impact on your dental health too?
A tooth can be knocked out by a blow to the mouth, or an accident involving the face. This can happen for example while playing contact sports.

Just the thought of going to the dentist can cause anxiety to some people. 40% of the UK population have some form of anxiety of seeing the dentist with around 10% avoiding treatment altogether.

We’ll happily spend a small fortune on moisturiser and other luxuries but when it comes to toothbrushes, it can be all about the ‘colour & price’, surprisingly some people still find brushing their teeth a chore or even worse, tend to skip it completely!
