General Dentistry - A Complete Dental Service
Dentistry is almost as ancient as the history of mankind and civilisation with the earliest evidence dating from 7000 BC. A lot has changed since then! General Dentistry is a term used to cover all aspects of dental services.
Here at Rock House Dental Practice, we offer lots of different dental services so that we can improve and maintain your dental health. Above all, your dental care is important to us! We provide everything from general dentistry to cosmetic smile makeovers. We also offer services such as teeth straightening and even cosmetic skin treatments. First of all, our family run practice prides itself on good old-fashioned customer service. We treat our patients with the same high standards as we would treat our own friends and family.
Initially, we will always carry out a dental examination in order to identify any dental concerns or problems that you may have. Following on from the examination, we can recommend different treatment options for you.
General Dentistry includes the following treatments:
- Dental Practice Membership
- Treatment with the Dental Hygienist
- The provision of Dentures
- Endodontics (also known as root canal treatment)
- Periodontal Treatment (gum disease)
- Restorative Dentistry (Fillings, Crowns & Bridges)
- The treatment of Nervous Patients
Caring for your family is important to us. Prevention is always better than the cure, so we always try to stop the dental disease in its tracks. Making sure our patients are well informed is always the first step. By teaching patients to look after their own teeth, we are able to minimise the risks of dental disease. Often overlooked are basic skills such as toothbrushing techniques. Learning these skills is key to making sure that your mouth is clean and healthy. We will ensure your children are well cared for so that their oral health is optimal.
