Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Following the announcement by the government on 28th May, we are incredibly pleased and excited to announce that we will be re-opening our practice soon!

At Dentalcare Group patient safety and comfort is of paramount importance, and we have spent the time during closure upgrading the clinic and introducing the following measures to keep our patients and staff SAFER than ever.

The clinic as you are aware has always been a very clean and safe environment. However, we have placed hand sanitisers at entry points, upgraded our PPE and redesigned the patient journey in line with social distancing.

We will be conducting pre-screening tests of patients which is likely to include taking your temperature on arrival.

We have had to cancel numerous appointments since the lockdown began 3 months ago and will initially be prioritising appointments for our existing patients who have had dental emergencies or appointments cancelled, in order of urgency. Please do not attend the clinic unless you have an appointment.

We thank you all for your patience during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you again soon!

We will be in touch as soon as we are ready to see you!

General dentistry treatments available in Trowbridge

At Dentalcare Trowbridge we offer a wide range of treatments. Some are cosmetic and some are to look after your general oral health. Examples of general treatments include:

 

  • Regular Check-Up. You should be visiting your dentist every 6 to 12 months. Your dentist will count your teeth and check that they are all healthy. Your mouth and gums will also be checked. Your dentist will be checking for any evidence of tooth decay, signs of gum disease, wear and tear on your teeth, signs of discolouration and checking how your teeth bite together
  • Fillings. At your general check-up, your dentist will check that any fillingsyou currently have are in a good condition and don’t need replacing. Your teeth will also be checked for any cavities and if you have any, you will be offered amalgam fillings or the popular white fillings to restore and protect your teeth. White fillingswill incur a charge as they are a cosmetic form of dentistry
  • Root Canal. When the blood or nerve supply to the tooth becomes infected, it can become painful. We remove all the infection from the root canal to prevent the spread of infection
  • Periodontics. If you show any signs of gum disease or are deemed to be at risk of gum disease, you may be referred to one of our periodontists who specifically deal with treating gums and bones that support your teeth
  • Emergencies. Dental emergencies are very common and affect 1 in 4 people during their lifetime. Whether you have a painful toothache or have suffered a chipped or knocked-out tooth, then you can call the surgery for an emergency appointment. We see patients within 24 hours of calling
  • Hygienist. Our hygienistsfocus on the health of your gums. They can help you to establish a good oral hygiene routine and focus on the prevention and treatment of gum disease. You should see your hygienist at least twice a year
  • Extractions. Removing a tooth can be necessary if it is failing or causing you unnecessary pain. A tooth may also need to be extracted as part of a planned treatment; this might include dental implants or for orthodontic work. Extractions occur quickly and painlessly; your dentist will administer a local anaesthetic to your gum so that you will not feel a thing
