Heathfield Dental Clinic in Croydon has become one of the first to offer "PAIN FREE" Laser Fillings.
At our dental surgery in Croydon we uses a revolutionary laser system to offer patients pain-free fillings.
This laser is so precise that it can focus just on the area of decay, leaving surrounding tissue or bone undamaged.
The laser is quicker than other machines and it sterilises as it goes because bacteria cannot survive after the diseased molecules have exploded.
It cuts the risk of infection significantly.
Our dental clinic in Croydon was one of the first practices in the UK to acquire this revolutionary laser system.
We regard your routine examination at our dental surgery in Croydon as the most important step in maintaining your dental health and avoiding invasive treatment.
Your commitment to attend regularly for this important item of care is your contribution.
If no dental treatment is required that's great!
It means our professional skills are working for you.
However, you may have concerns about your teeth that you wish to discuss with us, or you may be interested in finding out more about a new treatment or cosmetic procedure that you have heard about.
Please ask us. (Dentists love to talk about teeth!)
To get the most out of your examination take a minute to look at our Smile Check before you visit us.
This is what we do:
Value your routine examination in the same way as a car service, to avoid breakdown and trade up to a better model!
Our hygienists are an essential part of our team here at Heathfileld Dental Clinic in Croydon.
Our hygienists work closely with the dentists to provide oral health care and advice and they are professionally trained in the treatment and prevention of gum disease.
What is gum disease?
Gum disease is inflammation and destruction of the gums and bone that support the teeth.
It is caused by plaque bacteria.
Gum disease is an extremely common problem and affects over 80% of adults to some degree.Left untreated, gum disease can damage and eventually destroy the bone supporting your teeth resulting in tooth loss. Gum disease has also been linked to other health problems such as heart-disease.
In its early stages you may not be aware that you have gum disease.
However, your dentist will look for any signs at your check-up.
The good news is that, with the correct treatment, gum disease in its early stages can be reversible and more advanced disease can be treated and kept under control.
Symptoms to watch out for are:
What your hygienist can do:
An assessment - to record and measure the extent of any gum problems.
Scaling and Polishing - to remove any plaque and tartar from the teeth.
Root Planing - a special procedure for more advanced gum disease which involves cleaning the root surface.Review and Maintenance - once gum disease is under control regular visits for cleaning and monitoring are very important.
In addition to treating gum disease our hygienists can offer advice on:
If you, or your children, play contact sports we strongly advise you to wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth from impact.
All too often we have dealt with the aftermath of a blow to the teeth from a hockey stick or rugby tackle.
Damage to teeth from sports injuries is often severe and can require complex and costly treatment to put right.
A custom made professional mouthguard is recommended for the best protection.
We do not recommend 'off the shelf' mouthguards as they will not fit accurately and they can be uncomfortable to wear.
To make a mouthguard all we need is an impression of your teeth.
This quick and easy procedure requires only a short appointment.
The impression is then sent to a dental technician who will make a comfortable shield which exactly fits your teeth.
If you require a mouthguard please ask us and we will be happy to arrange it for you.
Remember, a small investment in the right protection for your teeth can save a lot of tears!
“I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, caring and dedicated team.”
“No words are going to express the depth of my gratitude for all that you have done for me. You have, literally, given me a smile… and it is regularly shown!”
“Everyone is really friendly and I was treated as though I matter. The team at Heathfield Dental took my fears of dentists seriously and really helped me to overcome them.”
“I first came here many years ago, when my daughter was about 3 years old. We have both been coming ever since and even though my daughter is now grown up and currently living in Spain, she insists on returning to Heathfield Dental for her regular check ups every six months. She has only just had her first filling, which we like to think is a testimony to the team as much as anything else!
We both feel very comfortable here indeed. The staff have a wonderful way of putting you at ease from the moment you walk through the door. The receptionists, nurses and dentists themselves are kind, courteous and of course highly skilled. We are so fortunate to have such a top notch team in our vicinity.
If there was a gold star rating system for the Heathfield Dental Practice: I would award the maximum number possible!
Many thanks to all the team for helping to keep us all smiling!”
