Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

Stay safe.
Kind Regards,
Dentalcare Group Team

General dentistry treatments available in Bradford On Avon

Here are some of the general dentistry treatments that we offer at Dentalcare Bradford On Avon:

 

  • Regular Check-Up. You should be visiting your dentist every 6 to 12 months to ensure that your teeth and mouth are healthy. This will also prevent any issues from arising such as tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist will ask you if you’ve experienced any problems since your last visit and will check for any issues such as tooth wear, jaw joint problems, overcrowding, signs of gum disease or tooth decay.
  • Fillings. If you have any cavities, we can offer you amalgam or white fillings to restore and protect teeth. White fillings are usually seen as cosmetic dental treatments and so will have a higher cost.
  • Root Canal. When the blood or nerve supply to the tooth becomes infected, it can become painful. We remove all the infection from the root canal to prevent the spread of infection
  • Dentures. We make dentures to fit you perfectly and these can either be for several or all missing teeth. We check to see the fitting of your dentures as well as checking on your general oral health.
  • Emergencies. Whether you’ve chipped or fractured your tooth or have a painful toothache, we know that dental emergencies can be frightening. We aim to see all dental emergency appointments within 24 hours of calling.
  • Hygienist. Your dental hygienist focuses specifically on the heath of your gums and protecting the health of your teeth through oral hygiene. You should aim to see your hygienist twice a year.
  • Extractions. The removal of a tooth can occur because the health of the tooth is failing, or because it is part of a planned treatment such as dental implants or teeth straightening. Whatever the situation, your dentist will numb your gum and mouth with a local anaesthetic so that you cannot feel any pain at all.
