Our specialist periodontists treat patients with gingivitis (inflamed or bleeding gums) or periodontal disease (which affects the gums and underlying bone).

Show your smile for the nice dentist

The care we provide is patient-centred If you feel nervous about visiting the dentist or hygienist you are not alone.  Often this is due to negative past dental experiences, a fear of pain or the unknown, or even embarrassment about your teeth and mouth. At The Dental Surgery each patient is treated with unconditional positive regard.  We do not judge our patients or make assumptions about them; instead we listen to any concerns and fears you may have and provide genuine care that involves treating you as a person, not just a mouth. A holistic approach Taking the time to actively listen to our patients helps us to understand their expectations and how they wish to be treated, and allows us to help them achieve their optimum oral health.  Our dentists, hygienist and specialists all work alongside one another and personally take patients from one surgery to the next when appointments are linked so that we can relay any important information and ensure you experience a continuous and consistent level of care. Transparency in treatment We endeavour to put you in control of your treatment at all times by explaining what we discover with easy to understand terminology and showing you your intra-oral pictures and X-rays to highlight any aspects of concern.  Before treatment is undertaken you will be provided with all the available options and a treatment plan outlining costs and steps to be taken Pain management With your permission, there are various methods and techniques we can use to alleviate dental anxiety and pain.  Dependent on your tolerance and sensitivity we can use numbing agents (topical for tenderness) or sedatives (by injection for nerve sensitivity) during treatment at no additional cost. Catch up on TV shows or listen to your favourite music during treatment, while always being able to alert the dentist or hygienist if you are experiencing discomfort in which case they will stop immediately. At The Dental Surgery, we are all dedicated to changing your dental experience for the better. Dental Surgeon

Your children should be happy about visiting the dentist

What do you do if you have a dental emergency over the holidays? We’ve gathered together our top 5 emergency dental FAQs – bookmark this page! Whether you’ve got swollen gums or your child has chipped a tooth, a dental emergency can threaten to spoil Christmas for everyone. Don’t let it! We’re here to arm you with the information you need to take the situation in hand and do the right thing while getting the help you need. BROKEN TOOTH Bitten down too hard on a kernel of fancy festive popcorn? The treatment of your chipped or fractured tooth will depend on the degree of its injury, but you should see a dentist straight away. Don’t worry, as it’s usually easy to restore a damaged tooth and we might even be able to do it in a single visit. Call us for an urgent appointment and, in the meantime, try to avoid biting in that area or eating hot or cold foods. KNOCKED-OUT TOOTH Did the battle over the turkey drumsticks come to fisticuffs? If a blow or fall knocks one or more of your teeth out, you should recover it and remove any dirt or debris by gently rinsing it. To protect the fibres on the root surface, avoid handling the root. Your tooth will have a better chance of survival if you can keep it in its socket until you can get emergency dental treatment. If that’s not possible, put it in a cup of milk. If the tooth is simply pushed out of place, don’t force it back into its socket, just apply light finger pressure to reposition it to its normal alignment. Use a moist tissue or gauze to hold the tooth in its place and call us immediately. TOOTHACHE OR SWOLLEN GUMS Are your teeth or gums causing you more pain than Uncle Nigel’s bad jokes? There are a number of reasons for toothache and swollen gums, but it’s most often down to infection. Painkillers may help you feel more comfortable but don’t rely on them instead of seeing the dentist, as they allow more time for the infection to spread. If the pain has become worse over time, use warm water or a specialist mouthwash to rinse your mouth. You may also choose to gently floss or use a waterpick to remove any food that might cause infection. Call us immediately so we can assess the cause and help solve the underlying problem. LOST FILLING OR CROWN Did your nan’s Christmas cake pull your crown off with it? At Christmas, the only crown we’d want you to be taking off is the paper kind. If eating sticky foods pulls one out, or loosens a filling, then you’ll need to come in and see us. A loose crown should be saved so we can re-cement it as soon as possible, as long as it hasn’t been damaged. If a filling falls out, remove it from your mouth to avoid swallowing or choking on it. You won’t need to save it as it will be replaced with a new one. BITTEN LIP OR TONGUE Biting your tongue over your granddad’s views on Brexit? Christmas banter can be treacherous! If you’re in pain after biting your lip or tongue by accident (or on purpose), apply a cold compress to the inside of your mouth to reduce the swelling. If you can’t stop the bleeding with a compress, and are losing blood, you may need to visit your closest A&E to get stitches. Call 111 for advice. We hope you’ll have safe and happy Christmas and New Year celebrations, but if something does happen, then hopefully you’ll now have a better idea what to do.
