Dentistry the Whole Family Can Smile About

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Oral health is important at all ages, which is why comprehensive dental care is available for all the family. Most oral health problems can be prevented, so it’s important to focus on keeping our teeth healthy and strong to keep gum disease and tooth decay at bay. These problems don’t just affect your mouth, they can have a knock-on effect on your overall health, not to mention your confidence and wellbeing!

Children’s oral health

Children’s teeth are precious things and your little ones should really start visiting the dentist from the age of 12 months. It’s important to make dental trips fun so your child always has positive memories of the experience. Dental phobia is common even in youngsters, but enjoying a trip can help to make your child feel at ease. Children should learn about diet and oral hygiene from an early age and your dental team will be able to give you plenty of advice to keep those pearly whites beautifully bright.

Adult oral health

Your teeth say a lot about your general health and it’s very important to look after both them and your gums. Most dentists have loads of hygiene treatments to offer so you don’t have to shake hands with any nasty oral diseases. They’ll also offer lots of restorative treatments and nutrition advice, as well as tips for quitting smoking.


All dentists recommend regular dental check-ups for all the family. You should really see your dentist every six to nine months. Routine check-ups don’t last long but they can make a massive difference to your oral health because it helps the dentist spot any early warning signs. It also makes sure your teeth look beautiful and healthy.


How to Deal with a Dental Emergency

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Most people are aware that if they need urgent medical help, they call 999 and an ambulance arrives, but what happens if you have a dental crisis in Liverpool?

What to do if you have a dental emergency

If you’re in pain, have an accident or injure your tooth and need urgent help, call us and we will do everything we can to see you as soon as possible.

Dental injuries

Types of dental injury include:

  • dislodged tooth (also known as avulsion)
  • severe dental pain
  • broken tooth
  • dental abscess

If you have lost a tooth through a sports injury or as a result of a fall, it may be possible for us to save the tooth, so call us as quickly as you can. If we are able to see you quickly enough, we will implant the tooth back into the socket and patch you up in no time.

Whatever your injury, we will do our best to remedy your pain and make you feel comfortable as soon as possible. If you need treatment and you are anxious, we can offer sedation. Sedation is a technique that enables patients to feel more relaxed and calmer during a procedure.

We Look After The Whole Families Teeth-Children’s Dentistry In Central Liverpool

Monday, February 17th, 2014

It isn’t just grown-ups who need to take care of their pearly whites! Children’s teeth can sometimes be treated as a kind of test run: they are going to fall out anyway, so what is the big deal? Well, firstly, losing milk teeth early can impact upon the development of a child’s jaw and, subsequently, their facial structure. Secondly, habits developed in youth can stay with a child well into adulthood and, if one of those happens to be a lax attitude to dental care, then you might be causing future problems with that care free attitude. So, what do you do to give your child the best start possible?

We offer early check ups

Cavities can erupt in a child’s mouth even before their teeth have emerged. As a result, we recommend taking your child in for a dental examination as soon as you feel comfortable to do so. Having a check up every six months is also a good habit to carry in to adulthood and having such examinations when young helps notice little problems before they swell into giant ones.

The foundations of brushing

In between those essential checkups, however, the parent is its child’s main defender against plaque and tooth decay and, via the foundation of a solid oral health regimen, will be setting their kid up for a life of fruitful dental health. Initially, however, the parent will actually be cleaning their children’s teeth on their behalf. Prior to them emerging, you can clean a baby’s teeth with the use of a wet cloth and a dollop of tooth paste. Post-eruption, you can purchase special brushes to clean their new teeth with. The mantra for kids capable of brushing is: ‘Brush for two minutes, twice a day’.

Preventing future problems

Many dental problems can be spotted during early checkups, halting them from becoming big issue for their adult selves. In terms of preventative protection, we currently offer fluoride applications and fissure sealants so as to help protect your child’s teeth during those early, sweet consuming, years.

The significance of learning

Alongside general technique, we hope also to dispel the notion that dentists are something to be frightened of. Dental phobia can be a major problem in adult life and developing a healthy relationship with a dental practice at a young age can prevent this.
