General dentistry is designed to diagnose, treat and manage oral healthcare needs. At Smile 4 U, we’re your first point of contact for diagnosis and treatments, including gum care, fillings, crowns, veneers, root canal surgery, bridges and preventative education. If your dentist identifies potential issues which require advanced treatment, such as implants, they can refer you to the appropriate member of our team.
Dental problems can arise at any time – particularly without a good oral health routine – and even lead to health issues seemingly unrelated to the teeth. That is why general dental check-ups are crucial for any patient, regardless of health and age. Clearly, patients with oral problems such as gingivitis (gum disease) should attend regular appointments for treatment, but oral health is important for everyone.
At Smile 4 U in Bromley, we understand the importance of good oral hygiene to your overall physical well-being, as well as your smiling confidence, which is why we take the time to educate our patients in good oral health practices, stressing the importance of preventing dental problems from occurring in the first place. Furthermore, if stroke, heart disease or respiratory problems run in your family, then oral health is even more important, as by neglecting your oral health your risk of suffering any of these is increased.
At a typical dental check-up appointment, one of our highly skilled dentists in Chislehurst will work alongside an experienced dental nurse to discuss your general health, clean your teeth thoroughly, assess your gum health and examine each tooth on its own merit to check for dental problems and ensure a comprehensive oral examination is completed and no areas are missed. You can be assured that the check-up procedure is the same for NHS patients as it is for those seen privately, and information about fees for all our services can be found on our Finance page.
Any problems will be discussed fully with the patient you, giving them you the opportunity to ask questions and understand exactly what their your options are in terms of recommended treatment.
