Frequently Asked Questions

Your fears and concerns laid to rest

I would love a nicer smile but I’m worried that braces will be uncomfortable and unsightly

We are delighted to be able to use the latest technology to make braces which are tailor made to your teeth. As they are designed to fit your unique teeth they are much more comfortable than traditional braces. Our specialist orthodontist can help create the smile you have always wanted with braces which are discreet. It is now even possible to wear braces that are completely unnoticeable!

When should a child first visit the dentist?

Once that first tooth pops through (or within the first year) it would be a good idea for them to come and meet us!

It is important to get children familiar with the dentist and involved in their own dental hygiene as early as possible.

We believe that great habits should be encouraged early on and visiting us as soon as possible will help them to feel comfortable and relaxed visiting us in the future!

Take a look at our children dentistry page for hints and tips for caring for little mouths.

Why should i visit the dentist if i don’t have any problems?

A visit to the dentist is not just about treating issues, it is about preventing them. Good oral care is important, not just for your dental health but for your overall well being.

By regularly visiting your dentist and hygienist we can spot problems and nip them in the bud, often before they cause you any further issues.

Our dentists check for oral cancer as a matter of course and early detection is proven to lead to a 90% cure rate.

Our team are always happy to answer your questions to help you to care for your teeth and gums more effectively.
