We’ve got you covered if you need a dentist in SW14
Going to the dentist in SW14 can be a lot more involved than even just a couple of decades ago. The digital age has seen major advances in the treatments and techniques, the materials and the equipment that dentistry can offer, and most of those big advances have now filtered down to even your local dentist, should they want to invest in them. At Sheen Dental, we do. That’s why, when you choose us as your dentist in SW14, you will find you can access pretty much every kind of dental care you may need under one roof.
This is the backbone of your dental care. This is the check-ups, the plaque and calculus removal, the fillings, the crowns, the root canal therapy and the tooth extractions. Every dentist offers these and at Sheen Dental, general dentistry has been available since the practice opened, more than 100 years ago. The difference now is that we use digital x-rays to look under your teeth, our records are computerised, and we also have a CT scanner. Of course, hygiene is more important than ever, and we are proud of our separate decontamination and sterilisation facilities.
The focus of dentistry has shifted over the past few decades, from replacing teeth willy-nilly to doing everything we can for you to have your teeth for life. That’s why we encourage you to have a scale and polish at least twice a year. We also encourage parents to get their children’s teeth protected against decay with fluoride treatments and fissure sealants.
Anxious, stressed-out patients who grind their teeth at night can protect them with a bite guard. We are keen for pregnant women to come and make sure that any pregnancy gum disease is being taken care of. We also encourage people with wonky teeth to have braces as straighter teeth are easier to brush and therefore likely to last longer.
One of the biggest innovations has been the introduction of dental implants to replace lost teeth. Implants last a long time, offer great chewing power and keep the jawbone, and neighbouring teeth, strong and healthy.
