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 Swindon

General dentistry includes any treatment that maintains your dental health. Here are some of the more common treatments that we offer at Dentalcare Swindon:

 

  • Regular check-up. You should visit your dentist every 6 to 12 months to ensure that your teeth and mouth are healthy. This will also prevent any issues from arising such as tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist will count your teeth and check to see if you’ve experienced any problems since your last visit. Your dentist will look for such things as tooth wear, build-up of plaque jaw joint problems, overcrowding, signs of gum disease or tooth decay.
  • Fillings. If you have any cavities in your teeth you may need a filling to restore and protect your teeth. We offer the metal amalgam fillings or the popular white fillings which blend in with your natural teeth. If you opt for white fillings there will be cost as these are deemed to be a form of cosmetic 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
  • Dentures. We make dentures to fit you perfectly and these can either be for several or all missing teeth. We regularly check to ensure that your dentures fit well and are not causing any discomfort.
  • Emergencies. Whatever your dental emergency, we will aim to see you within 24 hours of calling the surgery.
  • Dental hygienist. You should see your dental hygienist twice a year. Our hygienists look at protecting the health of your gums as well as maintaining your oral health.
  • Extractions. The removal of a tooth can occur because the health of the tooth is failing, or because it is part of a planned treatment such as dental implants or teeth straightening. Whatever the situation, your dentist will numb your gum and mouth with a local anaesthetic so that you cannot feel any pain at all.
