Stoke Bishop Dental Centre – dentist in Bristol

Do you feel anxious or worried about visiting your dentist?

 If you do, you are not alone, according to NHS Choices, 1 in 4 of us dreads a visit to the dentist. There are different reasons for being afraid or worried about visiting your dentist. It can be a fear of being hurt by the treatment or it can be the smell and sounds of the dentist, which could bring back bad childhood memories; whatever your reason for not wanting to visit your dentist, the good news is that many dentists now understand patients’ fears and this is true especially of the Stoke Bishop Dental Centre in Bristol.

The practice prides itself on its treatment of nervous patients and has had extensive experience of treating nervous patients over the years. They have seen a wide range of people with different levels of anxiety. They understand you may feel anxious about having dental treatment or you may have developed a phobia of the dentist, which has stopped you seeing the dentist altogether.

One of the things that really helps is to talk through the treatment that you will receive with the dentist or nurse as it helps the patient to know exactly what to expect. If you are still very concerned, they can offer intravenous sedation, which will keep you calm and relaxed but you will be awake and able to answer questions and respond to the dentist but you probably won’t remember much about the experience afterwards.

Dr Paul Wilson and Dr Jim Toms at Stoke Bishop Dental Centre are fully qualified to offer intravenous sedation, having acquired qualifications from the Society for Advancement in Sedation in Dentistry (SAAD). So, if you are one of the many people that has a fear of visiting your dentist, be assured that trips to the dentist are very different these days and that there is a greater understanding of these fears and phobias.

Top tips to ease dental fear

  • Ask friends and family for dentist recommendations of a good dentist
  • Pre visit the surgery
  • Make a morning appointment so you don’t need to worry about it all day
  • Take a friend with you to your appointment
  • Arrange a sign, such as raising your hand with your dentist to signify you need a break during treatment
  • Go for a hygiene appointment first to get used to the dental practice
  • Take some music and earphones to help you relax

Missing Teeth? – Try Dental Implants

You may have heard about dental implants as they are becoming a popular choice for patients with a missing tooth or teeth. Park Dental Practice offer dental implants and will carry out a full assessment of your general health and how your teeth fit together, your oral health and the density of your jawbone before they proceed with the treatment.

A small titanium post is then inserted into your bone using a local anaesthetic. Over several months, the implant will fuse together with the surrounding bone. Once this has occurred, replacement teeth can be fixed to the implant.

The dental implants have a great advantage of being very strong, acting as a normal tooth and root would do. It doesn’t affect the teeth surrounding the implant and you can clean them as you would your normal teeth. Other advantages are that they don’t affect your speech, and you are able to carry on eating any foods that you like.

Facial Aesthetics

It is not just dentistry available at Park Dental Practice, it also offers facial aesthetics, including ant-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. The anti-wrinkle injections are where an ultra-fine needle is used to inject a purified protein in to sections of the face where it is required. This protein stops the skin from creasing and prevents certain muscles from contracting. It is often used on forehead lines and crow’s feet.

Dermal fillers are used to enhance the skin by smoothing lines and plumping up areas where skin elasticity has been lost. Tiny amounts of gel are injected into the areas that need it with a very fine needle. The results are instant and can last for several months.

The practice offers a free consultation for these treatments, so you can book this using the contact details below.

Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, which are barely visible. As it works on the same principal as traditional metal braces, it is a very predictable and effective result.

Invisalign – known also as the ‘invisible brace’ comprises of a series of custom-made teeth aligners, which the patient needs to change every few weeks until the teeth have reached their desired location. The Invisalign treatment length can vary but is usually finished within nine to eighteen months.

Facial Aesthetics

Teeth Whitening

Getting your teeth whitened can make the world of difference to your smile and your confidence and is relatively affordable for a very effective smile enhancer. Teeth whitening is a simple and safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision. Your teeth could be lightened by up to around four shades.

Lushington Road Dental Practice in Eastbourne offer tray whitening, whereby some specially tailored mouth trays are designed and made, which will fit your teeth and gums perfectly. They will be comfortable to wear as they are tailor made and will reach all parts of the tooth. The whitening gel is held in little reservoirs of the mouth tray. The patient then places the mouth trays into their mouth on a daily basis or every other day for a period of between 2- 6 weeks, depending on the patient’s initial tooth shade.

You will meet your dentist regularly to assess the colour and they will work with you until the desired shade is achieved.

Lushington Road Dental Practice can also offer whitening for non-vital (dead) teeth. This involves the dentist accessing the tooth from the back and placing high density whitening paste in the tooth and then sealing off the tooth. This process is repeated until the tooth is lighter and generally takes between 2-4 weeks.

Dental Implants

If you have gaps in your teeth or missing teeth, it can affect many things such as speech, eating and chewing and can even knock your self-esteem. You no longer have to suffer in silence. Dental implants are more commonly available these days and are a great long term solution for missing teeth.

So, what exactly are dental implants, and how long does the process take? We explore a little further. A small, titanium screw is placed into the jawbone, usually under general anaesthetic or sedation. The gum is then stitched so that it heals over the implant. The bone and the titanium screw fuse together. This usually takes around 8-12 weeks. This then creates a tooth root, which is as strong as a natural tooth root is.  A replacement tooth can then be fitted onto the dental implant.

The Oral Health Foundation offers further useful information about Dental Implants.

Profitable Practices – Helping you create excellence in everything you do!

Do you feel that your practice could perform better, but unsure how to go about changing this?

Are you wanting someone to help you who has been there as a practice owner and understands the realities of dealing with staff and patients and running a business? Someone who won’t judge you or make unrealistic suggestions that just don’t apply to a dental practice. Someone who recognises that every practice is different and requires an individual approach.

We help you create excellence within your team. We do this by helping the whole practice learn new skills and systems. The practice will learn to adapt and change, embracing what the change brings rather than shying away from it.

We will help you weave within the fabric of your practice, a certain ethos, and a pursuit of excellence. This will make your practice stand out above your competitors. We help you manage this through constant repetition, and as a result these beliefs and behaviours become second nature. This will enable you to make a special place for your team and patients to visit. As a result you will have new patients requesting to join your practice to become a part of what you have created.

This is a journey that we take together, we will be with you from our first visit, spending a full day within your practice so that we can really get a feel for where you are, and then find out from you where you want to be. We then create a bespoke report detailing our findings and outlining our suggestions. It is then up to you how long you want us to help you, a one-off visit, support for 6 months, 12 months or beyond. With our monthly support plans, we will visit regularly to provide support and training, to help you implement your report. We are also available via telephone or email to answer any questions, queries or problems you encounter. We are fully aware that during the day you are busy seeing patients and dealing with the issues of running a practice, which is why we are happy to take calls out of office hours. We can help you make the changes you need to become a profitable practice, with an excellent team and happy patients.

If you have any questions or would like a chat about what we can do for you, drop us an e-mail or give us a call.

Markham Associates Dental Surgeons – Dentist in Reading

Wedding and party seasons are both fast approaching and this is the time when we want to look our best. If you have discoloured or yellowing teeth, it can really knock your confidence and make you reluctant to give your best, full smile.

Teeth whitening may be something you’ve never considered before, believing it is a treatment for celebrities. Well, this is no longer the case and more and more people are seeing their dentist for whitening treatments at much more affordable prices.

The teeth whitening at Markham Associates Dental Surgeons in Reading is both safe and effective. They will take impressions of your teeth and then produce specifically tailored whitening trays to fit perfectly in your mouth, providing you with comfortable and secure mouth trays.

The mouth trays will be used with a special whitening gel and you will take these home, with full instructions on how to use them, for a few weeks. After this, you will come back to visit the dentist and they can assess the lightening effect.

Some of the major benefits of having professional teeth whitening, rather than shop bought products, is that the trays are custom built for the patient, so fit perfectly. The professional lightening gel is more effective than the shop bought kits. Your treatment is overseen by a professional, therefore sensitivity and gum irritation can be avoided.

This could be caused by a broken or lost tooth, a lost or broken filling, crown, denture or bridge, an infection or just plain old tooth decay, causing pain. Whatever the emergency, Markham Associates offer same day emergency appointments five days a week between 8.30am to 5.30pm and until 7pm on Tuesday and Thursdays.
