Visiting your dentist on a regular basis is important for looking after your oral health and overall wellbeing. Here at Berry Lane Dental we understand that many people are reluctant to visit the dentist and dental phobia is a very common issue that we deal with, so you can rest assured that with us your oral health, comfort and ease are our top priorities. Whatever the situation you may have found yourself in, we are here to attend to your dental needs.
Emergency dental care at Berry Lane Dental
If you have been in an accident or experienced an injury which has resulted in trauma to your mouth, then you need to speak to your dentist in Rickmansworth for emergency dental care. If you have not visited your dentist in a while or you are not registered with us as a regular patient then do not let this deter you. We are here to provide emergency dental treatment for you. It is important that you contact us immediately so that we can help prevent further complications in the future. If you have experienced trauma to your mouth, your dentist will firstly clean your mouth to prevent the chance of any infection and if unfortunately your teeth have become moved or wobbly then your dentist in Rickmansworth is able to provide immediate dental care which can help prevent loss of the tooth. In the case of a wobbly tooth, your dentist may be able to treat the tooth by anchoring it to a neighbouring tooth until it becomes strong and sturdy again. In the event of tooth loss there are also many different options which your dentist in Rickmansworth can discuss with you immediately, to help prevent further complications as a result of delay, such as weakening of surrounding teeth or bone decay and also to restore full functioning of your mouth.
The importance of visiting your dentist and hygienist
Apart from emergency dental care it is important to visit your dentist on a regular basis as a preventive therapy as well. Despite having a good dental hygiene routine and healthy teeth and gums, it is vital that you have regular check-ups with your dentist and follow-up appointments with your hygienist for professional cleaning, in the form of a scale and polish, on a regular basis. It is recommended that you visit your dentist at least every six months to ensure that your teeth remain clean and healthy and that there are no dental issues present. If you are experiencing dental issues or you are at high risk of dental problems then it is important that you visit us at Berry Lane Dental more frequently.
