date materials available to prolong the life of
a tooth and to enhance its appearance.

Bridges which are used as a means of
replacing teeth that have been lost.
Crowns giving you a choice of materials
to rebuild or mask existing teeth.
Dental Implants can be used to replace
missing teeth without damaging the other teeth
which are near them. These implants are not
available on the NHS but are available from
Diplomat Dental at very reasonable prices. Just
ask at Reception for prices.

‘The Wand’ computer controlled anaesthetic
system. This is particularly useful for
our younger patients and our very nervous ones
or those who are needle phobic. The Wand looks
like a pen, it rapidly numbs the specific area
instead of the whole gum and does away with the
need for needles. This service is not provided
through the NHS but is available at a small
extra charge. Just ask at Reception for details.
Root canal treatment – By extracting the
damaged parts from the root canal, we can keep
the exterior of the tooth looking good.
Preventative advice as we would much
rather prevent problems for you rather than have
to deal with the results of neglect.
Oral cancer screening. This forms part of
our preventative dentistry care.
Orthodontic referral service. Both of our
dentists will be able to give you advice on
methods of straightening your teeth and be able
to refer you on to an orthodontic specialist for
NHS treatment. For private cosmetic dentistry
look at our next section for Invisalign and
Dental hygiene advice, teeth cleaning and
polishing. To help you to keep pain free
with good dental health our dentists will
provide advice on care of your teeth for now and
for the future.
