Introducing your family to your local Dentist
Your dentist is essential to your oral health, and that of your family. But many people are wary about going or don’t book in often enough to make a positive impact on their oral care. From that first visit to your new local dentist to making sure you schedule regular check-ups, our Harwood-based dental team will answer all your family’s questions and concerns to help get the best out of your smile.
I have great teeth. Why do I need to visit the dentist?
Your dentist does a lot more than look inside your mouth. They’ll polish and scale your teeth to eliminate plaque and calculus that have built up; tackle problems like decay and root canals; perform fixes like crowns and veneers; and even spot signs of infection or disease.
My child is scared of going to the dentist. What should I do?
Children benefit from seeing their dentist as early in life as possible – from the moment those first tiny teeth appear. Being in a clinical, sterile environment can feel unwelcoming or scary, but children quickly become comfortable with our Harwood dental team to puts them at ease. Take a soft toy with you to comfort a young child, or reward them with a sticker or treat afterwards.
I haven’t been to the dentist for a while and am worried about my teeth.
Then we’d advise booking in with our Harwood dental team as quickly as possible. Neglecting your oral health now can lead to debilitating problems down the line, such as gum disease and tooth loss. Even if your teeth appear healthy, there can be hidden issues that a dentist can more easily spot.
My elderly relative is anxious about visiting a noisy dental practice.
In Harwood, we see patients of all ages and backgrounds. For our anxious patients, we’d recommend booking a visit at a quieter time when there are fewer people around. You could also bring a personal music player or book to help take their mind off treatment.
I’ve had a bad experience at the dentist’s and don’t want to go back.
It’s natural to be put off going to the dentist if you’ve had a bad time previously. But our highly trained and capable team will immediately put you at ease. We’ll always explain our treatments in advance, make sure any procedures we carry out are as comfortable as possible and provide follow-up advice so you stay happy and healthy.
