Yes, oral cancer is becoming more common and it is suggested that all patients are screened annually to ensure that the oral soft tissues are healthy.
When do I pay for my treatment?
One option is to pay for what you have done on each visit to the practice. This means that if you require a lot of treatment, where you attend multiple appointments, you are not faced with a large bill at the end.
Some patients prefer to pay for all of their treatment on the last treatment appointment.
We respectfully ask that patients ensure that their treatment is paid in full the day it is completed, if not before.
How long do dentures last?
On average a set of complete dentures should last about 7 years.
Over time dentures tend to become less well fitting and they wear down causing patients to over close.
Can I have a white filling?
For almost every cavity that needs filled there is a white, tooth coloured option.
The NHS allows dentists to place white fillings in the front six teeth of each jaw and also in the sides of back teeth.
However the NHS does not allow dentists to place white fillings in the biting surfaces of back teeth and this is one of the most common fillings required.
Nowadays, many patients needing a filling of this type opt to pay for it privately to get a tooth coloured filling done.
Some patients are deciding to have their metal fillings replaced with white fillings.
