Family Dentistry at heath DENTAL
At heath DENTAL in Solihull we offer complete dentistry for you and your entire family. From check-up’s to fillings, hygiene and extractions, our experienced team are here to help.
Many people have had amalgam (silver) fillings in the past which they now feel are unsightly. White (tooth coloured) fillings look natural, are long lasting and increasingly popular.
If the decay is not too serious, the dentist will remove all the decay and restore the tooth with a white (tooth coloured) filling.
Existing silver fillings can be safely replaced with white tooth coloured filings restoring a natural look..
Dental decay happens when the enamel and dentine of a tooth become softened by acid attack, producing a cavity (hole).
Decay may or may not cause discomfort; even though it doesn’t hurt, the tooth is deteriorating.
Using higher magnification and powerful lighting, it is easier to detect decay at an early stage to prevent excessive tooth damage. When cavities are small, they are much easier and less expensive to treat.
Early tooth decay does not tend to show many physical signs. Sometimes the tooth looks healthy, but your dentist will be able to see from an x-ray whether you have any decay under the enamel, any possible infections in the roots, or any bone loss around the tooth.
“Childrens Day At heath DENTAL”
Our revolutionary CHILDREN DAYS have proved highly successful
We believe that visiting the dentist should be fun and enjoyable, not something to fear. Most phobias stem from a bad childhood experience, so we have set aside very popular days purely for looking after our children patients.
Colouring competitions, puppet shows, face painting, balloons, goodie bags and magicians have all been organised to entertain and educate in an environment dedicated to children.
Children are seen at a time of day when they are not overly tired and parents do not have the stress of the school run to contend with.
Fluoride applications and fissure sealants (tooth coloured sealants) are applied to biting surfaces of children’s teeth to prevent decay.
We aim to prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date.
