Your dentist in West Byfleet well help you maintain your oral health
Unfortunately, a lot of people that think they are cleaning their teeth properly often miss certain areas, or are just not thorough enough, and still suffer from a build-up of plaque or tooth decay. Visiting our dentist in West Byfleet regularly, will keep your teeth strong and healthy, free from any build-up that is in those difficult to reach areas.
At Byfleet Dental Boutique we want to make sure that all of our patients are aware of how important their oral hygiene is to us, as well as them. You only get one set of permanent adult teeth, so it is vital to take care of them if you want them to last for your entire life. There are things you can do at home to increase your oral health, such as using mouthwash and flossing between your teeth frequently, but coming to our dental practice for a full examination will enable our practitioners to spot any underlying issues that you may have, or that may become present in the not so distant future. Getting treatment as soon as possible will decrease your chances of needing more extensive dental work carried out in the future.
What treatments are available?
When you come for a general check-up with our dentist in West Byfleet, we will be able to assess the overall condition of your mouth and inform you of any problems that you may have. Some patients will need to see our hygienist for a deep clean to get rid of any plaque that has hardened on the tooth’s surface, whilst others will just attend their basic check-up and not need any further treatment.
It is not uncommon to need a filling, which is something that strengthens a tooth if it has become weak or damaged. The most common fillings are of a silver colour, but you can also get tooth coloured ones if you are worried about people noticing them when you talk.
If your teeth are in good condition but you are unhappy with them, due to their appearance or if you suffer from wisdom tooth pain, there are several treatments available to help you regain your confidence when it comes to smiling. Many people suffer from crooked teeth and will need braces. These can correct other issues too, such as gaps between your teeth and over or underbites.
Tooth whitening is becoming more popular as it is an easy and effective way to get rid of the stains on your teeth. You can usually choose how many shades brighter you want your teeth to be, but our dental practitioner will guide and advise you throughout the entire process.
There are many other treatments and procedures that we offer at Byfleet Dental Boutique, so if you would like to find out more information please book a consultation at our practice or speak to one of our dental professionals.
How often should you have a check-up?
It is recommended that you visit your dentist in West Byfleet at least twice a year, but this can vary depending on the condition of your teeth and if you are receiving any ongoing treatments. Our dental practitioner will make sure that you are aware of exactly how often you should be having a dental examination each year.
