Why choose Private Dental Treatments?
Inevitably we get many people asking why they should pay for private care. The demand for private dental care continues to be on the rise and below are some of the key reasons why as we hear from our patients at Crewe Dental Care:
- A wider choice of dental treatment options across general and cosmetic dentistry in which you can personalise to suit your dental needs
- We offer evening and weekend appointments for routine treatments and emergency care
- Access to a greater range of materials and equipment that sit at the cutting-edge of modern dentistry
- Time to discuss your case, identify the best treatment plan and carry out that treatment to your satisfaction
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the same shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay, or where there has been a very large filling. We usually use porcelain, gold, or a combination of these materials for the crown.
Besides having dental implants, there are two main ways to replace missing teeth. The first is with a removable false tooth or teeth – a partial denture. The second is with a fixed bridge. Traditionally, we use dental bridges when there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth. We use a precious metal base for our bridges.
Replacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance. A complete or full denture replaces the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat and speak.
Inlays & Onlays
You may have spotted some decay that cannot be resolved with a filling. Therefore, the next step is to cover the damage and restore your tooth by getting a Dental Inlay or Onlay. This treatment bridges the gap between a small filling and the need to cover the tooth entirely with a crown.
Nearly 1 in 10 dental patients need help with a broken tooth. The slightest chip in the tooth can quickly become a severe and painful dental problem. The sooner you treat a broken or chipped tooth, the less you’ll have to pay for treatment. Chips in teeth can also be symptomatic of a fundamental structural issue.
We try our best to save teeth, but sometimes the tooth cannot be saved and the best option for you is to remove it. We appreciate that the loss of a tooth can be hard, and we will always try to make it as pleasant and comfortable as possible. It’s vital you follow all aftercare advice to ensure your mouth heals properly and to prevent infection:
- Avoid eating hot food, do not smoke or drink alcohol. Try not to disturb any blood clot which may have formed in 24 hours
- Avoid rinsing your mouth for 24 hours after extraction. After this period, rinse gently with warm salty water
- Keep your mouth clean by brushing your teeth as you usually would
- Occasionally small pieces of bone may appear out of the socket, this is normal, so please do not panic
- You may experience swelling and some discomfort for the first 2-3 days. We advise taking ordinary painkillers such as aspirin, ibuprofen or paracetamol for the pain
- Sometimes when the blood clot has broken down after the tooth extraction, you are left in pain and with an empty hole in your gum. This is otherwise known as a ‘dry socket’ and should be checked out by one of our dentists as soon as possible
