Looking after your teeth with our dentist

It is important that you and your children visit our dentist Richmond on a regular basis to maintain healthy teeth and gums. At Sheen Dental we welcome the whole family and encourage you to visit us at least once every six months, so that we can make sure that your teeth are clean and healthy, and free of any signs of decay or disease. At each appointment we carry out a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, and the inside of your mouth. Many dental health complications do not have any symptoms, they are asymptomatic, this means that you may not realise that there is something wrong with your teeth without professional diagnosis. Similarly children may have problems with their teeth, however they will remain unnoticed unless we examine your child's teeth thoroughly.

Preventing cavities and tooth decay


Children are prone to developing cavities because they do not always brush their teeth correctly and also because they enjoy sugary treats, snacks, fruit juices and milk drinks, all of which can damage the enamel of baby teeth. By bringing your child to our dentist Richmond on a regular basis not only can we teach them better dental hygiene and advise them on how to look after their teeth, but we can also detect any abnormalities and treat them quickly before they cause irreversible damage or require extraction.


In adult teeth we can also reverse early signs of cavities preventing tooth decay. Tooth decay can have serious implications, painful symptoms and require extensive dental treatment too. If tooth decay is not detected early then you may need a root canal treatment which is an invasive dental procedure used to remove infection and restore your teeth. If you continue to avoid our dentist Richmond then you may end up requiring a tooth extraction. To avoid this, it is important that you visit us regularly and more often when necessary.


Teeth straightening


If children visit our dentist on a regular basis then any complications which can affect their teeth in the future can be detected early on. This includes misalignment issues of the teeth which can be detected when adult teeth are erupting. It also includes detection of bite disorders. Bite disorders are when your teeth and jaw do not align correctly and can have many negative implications. If misalignment and bite disorders are detected early then orthodontic treatment can be provided on time so that your child can avoid dental complications in the future. We can also help adults with misalignment issues and bite disorders. There are different types of orthodontic treatment to meet your unique dental needs. By addressing these issues even as an adult you can enjoy better dental health for the future.


At Sheen Dental we offer a full range of preventive dental treatment, general dental treatment, orthodontic treatment and cosmetic dental treatment so you need to speak to our team and book an appointment sooner rather than later. We will make sure that your teeth and gums are clean and healthy and we will let you know how we can help you look after your teeth more effectively to enjoy a happy and healthy smile for the rest of your life.
