Everybody at Bridge Street Dental Surgery is committed to providing high quality dental care in a comfortable, calm environment. We offer a preventative approach to general dentistry as we want to keep your mouth in the best health possible at all times.
Prevention is always better than cure
From preventative care to tooth replacement, we offer the entire range of modern dentistry services to keep your teeth healthy and looking natural throughout. Prevention is at the heart of everything we do because we believe in creating healthy, beautiful smiles which can last a lifetime. At your routine general dental examinations we will screen for any oral health issues, cavities and mouth cancer.
Oral Hygiene is part of our ethos of preventative care. Good oral hygiene helps prevent gum disease, tooth decay, tooth discolouring and halitosis.
Our hygienists will carefully clean around the gums and teeth removing any build up of dental plaque and calculus (calcified plaque). They can tailor a cleaning regime to suit you, and will demonstrate how to best maintain your teeth and gums.
Gum disease can often go unnoticed. The severity of gum disease can vary between individuals and in late stages the teeth can lose support and become mobile. Gum disease causes more tooth loss than tooth decay and if left untreated has been linked to other conditions such as heart disease. By preventing the build up of dental plaque the progression of gum disease can be prevented.
As part of your routine dental exam, we check for signs of gums disease. We can advise you how to maintain your teeth and gums and whether any additional measures are needed, such as special toothpaste or a fluoride mouthwash.
Babies should be registered with a dentist at birth. A first visit should be scheduled for around 6 months of age - when the first teeth generally start to appear - and regular visits are recommended from then on to help ensure they are confident and relaxed.
It is important that children are educated regarding their diet and personal oral health as early as possible. As soon as their first teeth appear your child should be encouraged to brush twice a day– with supervision. A child should be able to brush their teeth independently from around 7 years of age.
