Maintaining healthy, beautiful smiles
GENERAL DENTISTRY IN LOW FELL, GATESHEAD
Tooth decay, known technically as dental caries, is one of the most common health complaints in the world. It is particularly common in children and young adults, and rates have been fuelled by an increase in sugars in the diet, and poor dental hygiene.
We will give you advice on how to minimise the risk of getting tooth decay. If treatment is necessary we aim to start work as early as possible and restore teeth using the least invasive measures.
Healthy smiles for life
Our dentist and hygienists firmly believe that prevention is better than cure, and to that end your oral health is at the heart of everything we do. Our clinicians will educate you and your family in oral hygiene best practices and give you the tools you need to keep your smile healthy for life.
Our Dental Membership Plans can help you to spread the cost of your essential routine dental treatment over the course of the year. This way, you'll never miss a visit!
You should register your baby with a dentist before they reach six months of age, around the time their first baby teeth begin to erupt. Like adult patients, babies and children need a check-up every six months unless instructed otherwise by their dentist.
Visiting the dentist from a young age encourages robust oral health habits in children, preventing them from developing dental anxiety later in life and encouraging them to get regular check-ups into their adult life. The result? Healthy teeth and gums for the foreseeable future.
Visiting the dentist can be frightening as a child or an adult! Our skilled clinicians have years of experience treating young children – we will do everything we can to make your little one feel comfortable during their appointment and familiarise them with the experience. If it’s your child’s first visit, you could try settling them beforehand by practising some dentist role play, reading books about teeth and explaining what it’s all about in a positive way.
