General Dentistry

The dentist was so calm and reassuring and really cared that my teeth were cleaned and polished to perfection. Julie, who works at the practise is really helpful and makes you feel immediately at ease from the moment you walk in."

Check-Ups

A check-up is recommended every 6 months to optimise your dental health. At Byfleet Dental 
Boutique, we also offer thorough cleaning, with an airflow, and x-rays with our dentist in West Byfleet. We are a fully 
private practice, so do not offer any NHS treatments, but being a family-orientated practice, we offer children of paying patients a check-up absolutely free of charge. 

Please remember to look out for the BDB Monthly Plan, you will receive significantly reduced rates on treatments as well as free check-ups - Find Out More.

Routine dental appointments are essential to maintain good oral health and a happy smile. A standard dental check-up is carried out by an experienced, qualified dentist and is the best way to spot any problems with your mouth before they become serious. Both adults and children require routine dental appointments on a regular basis because preventative dentistry is the key to keeping your mouth healthy.

Routine dental appointments are usually carried out every six months, but the number of times you need to attend these appointments varies from patient to patient. Some patients may require more frequent visits, while others may need to come into the practice less often – your dentist will advise you on how often you need a regular check-up.

What happens at a routine dental check-up?

If it is your first appointment at the practice, your dentist will take a full dental and medical history.

 

They will also:

  1. Thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and mouth.

  2. Take X-rays if necessary.

  3. Discuss any dental problems you may have had since your last visit

  4. Discuss general health and dietary issues that can affect your teeth and gums – such as alcohol consumption or smoking.

  5. Discuss your teeth-cleaning habits, such as brushing technique, and recommend any improvements such as interdental brushes or flossing as required.

  6. Explain any further treatment you may need, such as fillings, root canal treatment or hygienist appointments.

  7. Provide you with a full treatment plan.

  8. Answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment and what options are available.

  9. If you require no other treatment, your dentist will let you know when you should come for your next routine check-up.

 

Life Benefits

  • Maintain good oral health

  • Spot any problems early

  • In many cases, prevent problems before they start.

Root Canals

Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is the filling of the root channel inside a tooth with a sealant after disinfection. It is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is damaged, infected, or dies through decay or injury.

Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth. This infection may spread through the root canal system and could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out.

 

Root canal therapy involves the following:

  1. First, local anaesthetic will be administered to ensure no discomfort is felt during treatment.

  2. The tooth will be prepared with a drill, allowing access to the root canal system.

  3. The root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned out to remove all infection and pulp.

  4. The root canal system is then filled and sealed temporarily with a crown.

  5. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.

  6. Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits.

 

Life Benefits

 

  • Preservation of remaining healthy tooth structure.

  • Prevention of infection spreading any further.

  • Restoration of tooth to its natural look and feel.

Emergency Dental Care

If you have chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or injury, it is very important that you see a dentist as soon as possible. Dr Sundeep Dhanoa is our dentist in West Byfleet and you can make an appointment by calling our practice. The same goes for one or more knocked out teeth. The sooner you are seen by a dental professional the better the chances that the teeth could be re-implanted, depending on the severity of your injury.

Here are some of the steps an emergency dental appointment will cover:

 

  1. A thorough examination of the injured area will be undertaken. This may include dental x-rays to determine the extent of the damage.

  2. Depending on the severity of the pain, the area will be numbed with local anaesthetic.

  3. The injured area will be sterilised to reduce the risk of infection.

  4. The damaged teeth will be restored temporarily or permanently, depending on the case.

  5. In severe cases the affected tooth may require extraction and implant treatment will be discussed.


If you require emergency dental treatment, you should ask to see a dentist as soon as possible. At our practice we offer appointments for all dental emergencies from toothache to lost or broken crowns, chipped teeth and fillings to abscesses, trauma, avulsed teeth and facial swelling. We can take care of your injuries to ensure you heal quicker and more effectively, ensuring that you avoid additional dental problems and complications in the future.

 

Life Benefits

 

  • Preservation of remaining tooth structure.

  • Reduced risk of infection.

  • Improved long-term oral health overall.

White Fillings

If you require a filling in your tooth, a cosmetic option would be to choose a white filling material that matches the shade of your surrounding natural teeth. You can also have any existing metallic fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or ‘white’ fillings. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.

 

Here is how white fillings work:

  1. This is a safe procedure that entails the removal of any decay from your tooth, and taking out the metal or amalgam fillings if you are having them replaced. 

  2. The new filling is made from a very hard tooth-coloured substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time. 

  3. The restoration is completed in one visit and your fillings will not be visible when you smile.

 

Life Benefits

 

  • Natural-looking restoration.

  • Improved cosmetic appearance of filled teeth while still being able to bite and chew as usual.

  • Hard-wearing restorative solution.
