How Liverpool Dental Spa can reduce denture discomfort

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Are you struggling with your dentures? Has your denture come loose is it starting to run against and irritate your gums? When you have dentures, they shouldn’t be painful or uncomfortable. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality dentures that offer a hassle-free, painless solution for missing teeth. If you’re having troubles, we are here to help!

How we can help you

If your dentures are uncomfortable or painful or you’re worried about them slipping or sliding or coming loose when you eat, we can help. We have extensive experience in making and fitting dentures and we also offer a comprehensive repairs service. It’s incredibly important that your dentures fit properly and if you’re having difficulties, this could be a sign that your denture doesn’t fit well enough. Your mouth changes shape on a continua basis and a denture won’t last forever. If you’re not comfortable, this may indicate that you need a new denture because your old denture no longer fits. You may also experience problems if the denture is damaged. In this case, we can weigh up the options of replacing or repairing the denture.

At Liverpool Dental Spa, we want you to be comfortable and confident. You don’t have to put up with painful dentures that aren’t doing the job they’re intended to do. We can replace old and misshapen dentures and provide you with new teeth that look the part and enable you to do everything you want to without any discomfort at all. Don’t suffer in silence! Call us now and we’ll have you smiling again in no time!

Take a ClearStep forward in Liverpool

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

Are you searching for a simple way of straightening your teeth? If so, why not take a ClearStep forward in Liverpool?

What is ClearStep?

ClearStep is a very simple, effective removable brace system, which uses a series of clear appliances to move the teeth and give you a gorgeous new smile. ClearStep braces, also known as aligners, are made from transparent plastic, so they can’t be seen when you smile. This means that you don’t have to worry about what you look like while you’re having treatment.

What does treatment involve?

ClearStep treatment uses a series of aligners to realign the teeth. You will be given a collection of bespoke braces, which have been manufactured based on your individual orthodontic prescription. You’ll wear each brace for around 2 weeks and then swap the aligner for the next in the sequence until treatment is complete.

ClearStep braces are removable, which gives you flexibility, but it’s so important to make sure you wear the aligners for the recommended time each day. If you don’t wear your braces for at least 21 hours per day, there’s a risk that you won’t get the results you wanted. ClearStep aligners are designed to be taken out for eating and cleaning the teeth.

Am I a good match for ClearStep?

ClearStep is ideally suited to those with minor or moderate needs. Removable braces are not usually the best option for complex cases, as they cannot provide the stability of fixed braces and the range of movement is more limited. If you have minor or moderate issues and you’re looking for a straightforward, discreet solution that will fit into your daily life seamlessly, call today to find out more!

How we can help with wisdom teeth pain in the heart of Liverpool

Monday, October 9th, 2017

At Liverpool Dental Spa, we know all too well that the wisdom teeth can be incredibly troublesome. Sometimes, the teeth develop without any issues at all, but if you do start to develop pain, we are here to help. We understand that dental pain can be excruciating, and we’ll do everything we can to put a smile back on your face.

What causes wisdom tooth pain?

Wisdom tooth pain can come out of the blue and it can affect you even if you have healthy teeth and you take really good care of your pearly whites. In most cases, pain develops as a result of a lack of space in the jaw, which can cause the teeth to become impacted. This means that the tooth starts to grow at an angle, pushing against the neighbouring tooth. If you have pain and it’s getting worse or you’re getting bouts on a regular basis, we may recommend extracting the tooth. You don’t actually need your wisdom teeth and often, taking them out can benefit your remaining teeth, as well as alleviating pain.

If you do need your wisdom teeth extracting, your dentist will explain exactly what is going to happen. In some cases, extraction won’t be necessary and you may just need temporary pain relief while the teeth are growing.

Wisdom tooth extraction at Liverpool Dental Spa

We understand that having a tooth removed is not a very pleasant prospect and for some, even the thought of climbing into the dental chair can be terrifying. Our highly experienced team has expertise in removing wisdom teeth, and our dentists will do everything in their power to help you relax and stay calm. We conduct the procedure under anaesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain and we’ll be there to reassure you every step of the way. Our dentists are happy to answer questions and you can stop them at any time if you need a moment. After treatment, we will make sure that you’re happy and pain-free before you head home and we’ll be at the end of the phone if you need anything at all.

If your wisdom teeth are wreaking havoc, call us now!

How we can help you have a relaxing dental appointment

Monday, June 19th, 2017

At Liverpool Dental Spa, we know that going to the dentist is not everyone’s idea of a relaxing day out, and this is why we offer a range of services to make your time with us as pleasant as possible. Dental anxiety is very common, and our experienced dental team has training in caring for nervous patients. We also invest in the latest technology and treatments to eliminate pain and enable our patients to feel as calm as possible during their appointment. If you’re anxious about going to the dentist, you’ve come to the right place.

How we can help you to relax

We like to think of our clinic as a soothing oasis in the heart of the city. We have designed our treatment rooms and communal spaces to create a soothing, relaxing vibe, and we encourage you to make yourself at home as soon as you arrive. We will be more than happy to get you a drink, you can watch films, listen to music or read magazines or even treat yourself to a spa treatment. We have a range of spa therapies on offer and we can tailor a package to suit every individual.

Our team is experienced in treating nervous patients, but they don’t just have the skills to provide the best treatment. Our dentists and nurses are also incredibly compassionate, friendly and understanding. If you have any concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

We offer the latest treatments and we also have sophisticated technology, which enables us to minimise pain and speed up the treatment process. If you have a phobia of needles, for example, we can offer painless injections using an innovative device known as ‘The Wand.’

Sedation dentistry

Many patients feel apprehensive when it comes to the time when they have to have a dental procedure. If you have severe anxiety, we may recommend considering treatment under sedation. Sedation is a technique used widely in medical procedures, and it can also be hugely beneficial in dentistry. Unlike with general anaesthetic, you won’t lose consciousness when you’re sedated. However, you will feel drowsy and you won’t remember much after treatment. When the effects of the sedative become apparent, you won’t feel any pain and your body will feel completely relaxed.

If you’re a nervous patient, we are here to help. Call us today or pop in and have a chat if you’re in Liverpool city centre.

Broken Teeth Treatment In The City Of Liverpool

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

Your teeth are extremely strong and hard-wearing, but they are not unbreakable. If you have a broken tooth, it’s advisable to see your dentist to prevent further damage and restore your smile. There are various options available for treating broken teeth, including veneers and dental implants, but one of our most effective treatments is composite bonding.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is a simple, quick and painless cosmetic dental procedure, which is extremely effective for patients who have chipped teeth. The bonding process involves using dental composite to strengthen and repair the teeth. Dental composite is matched to the colour of the tooth and it has both aesthetic and functional benefits.

Dental composite is shaped while in soft, putty form; your dentist will use their skill and experience to mould the composite to build up worn surfaces, repair chips and even close small gaps between the teeth. Once the composite is in place, it will then be hardened using a curing light; this is a very quick process and it is not painful at all.

What are the advantages of composite bonding?

Composite bonding is more affordable than dental implants and veneers and the procedure takes less than an hour, which means you can enjoy the benefits of treatment much quicker. The process is painless and there is usually no need for anaesthetic.

The changes brought about by cosmetic bonding are often minor, but they have a real impact on the overall aesthetic of the smile. If you have a chipped or broken tooth or your teeth are worn and you’re fed up of feeling self-conscious when you smile or meet new people, this treatment can help to rectify these issues and ensure you feel happy and confident in the future.



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.

Dealing With Dental Phobia In The Heart Of Liverpool

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

It is hard to argue with that which is not rational, and phobias, by their very nature, are irrational. As a result, alternative methods to reasoning need to be concocted in order to coax out the myriad of silent and not-so-silent sufferers of dental phobia from under their certainly-not-a-dental-practice places of hiding. In all seriousness, dental phobia is a serious matter: In America, for instance, at least three quarters of the general public suffer with some kind of dental fear, whilst somewhere around 10% and 20% of Americans suffer from dental phobia so crippling that they refuse to go to checkups and surgeries. Not doing so, of course, will allow problems to run unchecked and will seriously impact one’s oral health. That those figures are from across the pond shouldn’t be a comfort either: according to the British Dental Foundation, around a quarter of people will publicly admit to being scared of the dentist and many more are speculated to be afraid of admitting those fears. So, the question remains: how do you deal with an irrational fear which can impact one so terribly? Well, at Liverpool Dental Spa we like to use intravenous dental sedation…

What is this intravenous sedation?

Fear not, it is safe as houses. The sedative would be administered before any procedures would begin and it should make you feel calm and contented. You will not fall asleep and will still be able to interact with the dentist. Other’s have compared the feeling produced by sedation to being a little tipsy, so it is a good idea to have a friend on call afterwards (sort of like a designated driver).

How does it work?

To be frank: via injection. If you also have a fear of needles, please talk to one of our staff as some alternatives may be able to be provided. The sedative is applied via a very thin needle that is used on a vein, which is incredibly close to the surface of your skin. Dental sedation is proving so popular that it is even being used as an alternative to a traditional anaesthetic during treatments!

Talk to us

Our friendly and attentive staff are always willing to hear your concerns and will endeavour to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.



Banish Teeth Stains With Our Whitening Treatments In Central Liverpool

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Some people keep their furniture wrapped in plastic to stop it from staining as use tends to result in marking. Sadly, that principle applies to teeth: if you use your teeth, they will end up losing their pearly-white sheen. Now, using your teeth is inevitable, so, rather than come up with ways of avoiding that, we need to investigate ways of sprucing up the old gnashers after they’ve been stained as a result of general wear and tear. How can this be done, you ask? Well, with one of the wondrous tooth whitening systems available from us at Liverpool Dental Spa of course!

What are tooth whitening treatments?

There isn’t anything too clever going here, it is exactly what it says on the tin: a treatment which will make your teeth whiter. How exactly this is done, however, differs from treatment to treatment…

The Wy10 whitening system

The Wy10 whitening system is a home whitening system, meaning it is done over a longer period of time in the comfort of your own residence. This system is also particularly suited for those with sensitive teeth! The final results from the system can leave your teeth looking up to 14 times brighter than when they started and, to top it all off, this system even comes with its own portable bleaching lamp so as to improve the procedure’s outcome.

Zoom! Power Whitening

‘Zoom’ is correct as, with this treatment, speed is the name of the game: Great results with this system can be achieved after one, 45 minute visit to us! Using a combination of bleaching gel and a patented activation light, the Zoom system can leave your teeth looking up to 7 shades lighter than when you walked in. The speed of this in-house treatment makes it ideal for those with busy lifestyles.

Enlighten Teeth Whitening

Just like the spiritual zenith implied by its name, the Enlighten Teeth Whitening system can take your teeth to the lofty plains of B1 shade teeth (the brightest shade in the UK). Not only that, but it is also perfect for patients with sensitive teeth! This is a home whitening system and it achieves its incredible via a two week course of gradual deep bleaching, all of which can be done in your pyjamas
