Good oral health is vital when it comes to maintaining a strong and happy smile. Regular visits to our dental hygiene team are an important supplement to your daily teeth brushing routine.
At your hygiene appointment our experts will check that your mouth, teeth and gums are all healthy, before giving your teeth a thorough professional clean. They will also be able to advise you on brushing techniques and the use of dental floss.
Should you require further treatment, our team will be happy to explain the options.
Molars and premolars, the teeth located at the back of the mouth, have tiny grooves and hollows on their biting surfaces. If food regularly gets stuck in these, it can cause decay.
Fissure sealants are protective coatings that are applied to cover these surfaces. This quick and straightforward procedure is usually carried out on children’s teeth.
The teeth are carefully cleaned, prepared and dried. The fissure sealant is applied as a liquid but sets very hard, and lasts for many years.
Teeth that have been treated with fissure sealants can be brushed in the usual way.
Gum disease or periodontitis is a common but serious infection of the soft tissues around your teeth. If gum disease is left untreated, it can damage the framework of bone tissue that supports your teeth.
This can lead to the tooth becoming loose or even having to be extracted. Regular hygiene check ups will allow our team to spot any early signs of periodontitis, and remove the plaque that can cause it.
The best way to avoid gum disease is through good oral hygiene, both at home and during regular visits to your dentist.
If the dental tissues contained in the pulp at the centre of your teeth become infected, you may require root canal (endodontic) treatment. The blood vessels and nerves carried by dental pulp are essential to the ongoing health of your teeth.
Root canal treatment can preserve these tissues and save your tooth from risk of removal. Some people are nervous about root canal therapy but our expert specialist root canal dentist (endodontist) will use modern local anaesthetics to numb the area before treatment starts.
Dentures offer a cost-effective way to replace lost or missing teeth. Complete dentures replace all the teeth in either your upper or lower jaw.
Partial dentures fill gaps left by missing teeth, and can be supported by the healthy teeth on either side. Dentures can last for several years but may need to be adjusted as the shape of your mouth can change over time.
One advantage of dentures is that they can be removed to ensure thorough cleaning.
Traditional metal (or amalgam) fillings can sometimes look unattractive, and affect your confidence in your smile. White fillings are a great alternative as they are made from synthetic composite materials that can be colour matched to your natural teeth.
Another advantage of white fillings is that they require less tooth material to be removed before they are placed. They are very strong and can also be used to reshape or strengthen damaged or weak teeth.
White fillings are easy to look after, and are less sensitive to hot and cold than metal fillings.
Your dentist may recommend tooth extraction for a number of reasons. For example, impacted wisdom teeth and badly decayed or damaged teeth can cause damage to surrounding tissues, and are often better removed.
It may also sometimes be necessary to remove teeth for orthodontic or cosmetic purposes. Whatever the reason for your extraction, our team here in Rochdale will do all they can to help you feel relaxed and at ease throughout your procedure.
Your dentist will explain your treatment and use gentle local anaesthetics to help you remain awake but pain-free.
It’s perfectly normal to feel nervous about visiting the dentist. Our friendly and reassuring team are experienced in providing support to nervous patients at our relaxing clinic in Rochdale.

If there’s anything we can do to make your visit a calmer experience, do please let us know.
