Preventative treatments

At Crawley Dental Clinic, we believe that prevention is always better than restoration. Our experienced oral hygienist will not only professionally clean your teeth, but also show you how you can keep them clean, healthy and in peak condition at home.

Our hygienist's role is to help patients look after their dental health, by showing them effective techniques for brushing & cleaning between their teeth.

 

Good oral hygiene is very important to keep both teeth & gums healthy, and could reduce the amount of dental treatment needed in the future.

 

During your appointment she will remove any hard calculus (tartar) & soft plaque that has built up on your teeth & polish off any surface staining. She will identify any areas that need particular attention as part of your home care & also give relevant dietary advice.

If you are missing one or more teeth and wish to eat your favourite foods, increase your chewing ability, and improve your appearance, speech, and self-esteem, then you are a candidate for dental implants. A dental implant replaces the root of a missing tooth and is made from surgical-grade titanium alloy to exacting specifications.

 

Initially the implant is placed into the jawbone either immediately after the loss of a tooth, or after an extended period of time. If there is insufficient bone, various bone enhancing procedures can be performed prior to the implant placement. An abutment, which acts as a base for a prosthetic tooth replacement such as a crown, is either inserted into the implant at the time of implant placement, or subsequently after a period of healing.

Dentists try to keep or replace teeth with treatments such as root canals, bridges, and fixed or removable dentures.

 

Unfortunately, a significant number of root-canal-treated teeth fail, bridges require that healthy adjacent teeth be cut down, and removable dentures can often be unstable and require the use of sticky adhesives. Dental implants are a solution to all of these problems, and many of the frustrations associated with natural teeth are eliminated, including dental decay.

 

 

 

This patient lost most of his upper teeth in an accident, which we restored with permanently fixed implant retained bridges.

•Complex restorative treatments e.g. multiple crowns, bridges

 

Reasons for crowns may be when teeth are broken or fractured, for cosmetic reasons, when teeth are very decayed or fractured large fillings. There are different crowns available:

 

metal crown

•Porcelain bonded to metal crowns

porcelain bonded to metal crown

• Porcelain only (all ceramic) crowns

Options will be discussed during the patient consultation. The preferred option depends on the patients dental

needs and personal choice.

•Severely worn or broken porcelain bonded to metal crowns were restored with porcelain only zirconium crowns

•An example of a patient that is gradually having the porcelain bonded to metal crowns replaced with all ceramic crowns. The all ceramic zirconium crowns are more cosmetic and translucent as they do not have the metal core. Note how the all ceramic crowns (purple arrow) match the lower teeth better than the porcelain bonded to metal crowns (black arrow).

•Complex endodontic (root canal) treatment

 

• Root canal treatment is needed when the nerve of the tooth is infected. This infection may spread through the root and cause an abscess and swelling in the bone and gum, which can be very painful.

 

If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may have to be removed. The aim of the treatment is to remove

all infection from the root. The root is cleaned and filled to prevent the infection from returning. This means we save the patient’s own tooth which is always the best option

Dentures

 

Our Clinical Dental Technician, Andrew McLean, provide the full range of NHS and Private dentures.

 

Orthodontic Treatment

The Inman Aligner is the perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth.  It is really fast, very safe and great value compared to other systems. With the patented Inman Aligner, your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases complete in 6-16 weeks and because it's removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.

 

Out of hours emergencies:

The NHS does not provide out of hours emergency treatment at the patient's dental surgery, but at the Emergency Dental Services, Crawley Hospital (Tel. 01293 518 541)

 

We can still see you at the surgery after hours (Tel.07748 982 080), but a call out fee of £80.00 plus the cost

of any treatment will be payable.

Failed appointments:

As wasted appointments prevent other patients from accessing treatment, we may de-register NHS patients or

charge Independent patients who fail to attend their appointments or cancel at short notice. Violent and/or abusive patients will not be seen at the surgery.

Queries:

If you are concerned or have a query regarding your treatment, please speak to Ricky Nel or Matt Botha at the surgery.

'The provider took account of complaints and comments to improve the service. All of the people that we spoke with told us that they felt that their comments would be listened to and acted upon if needed. Patients told us that they would speak to the manager of the service or the dentist if they had concerns. '
