Learn What Is Covered under NHS Dentistry
Under the NHS, you can come and see us for an examination and diagnosis which will include dental x-rays if necessary. During this appointment we can also scale and polish your teeth if required and we can also provide preventative dental care such as fluoride varnish or fissure sealants. Fluoride varnish is an excellent treatment for helping to harden teeth, reducing your risk of tooth decay while fissure sealants can protect the chewing surfaces of back teeth. These particular surfaces often have deep grooves and fissures that are not very easily cleaned with a toothbrush. As a result they can trap food and bacteria and have a tendency to develop cavities. Fissure sealants consist of a thin plastic coating that is painted onto the surfaces of clean teeth, completely sealing the teeth by creating a thin protective layer that will not interfere with your bite. During your initial examination we will provide customised advice on how to prevent any future dental problems from occurring and how to look after your teeth at home.
There are numerous other treatments that fall under the care of the NHS which include fillings, root canal therapy and tooth extractions. If you need any restorative work, then the NHS covers crowns, bridges and dentures. The cost of these treatments is all extremely reasonable and well within reach.
We thoroughly recommend that you see an NHS dentist in Clacton for regular check-ups a couple of times a year depending on your dental needs. Regular NHS dental care is an easy way to make sure your natural teeth last for as long as possible and by maintaining good dental health you will be helping to protect your general health so spending an hour or so every six months at our dental practice is well worth the effort. This is because a healthy mouth and a healthy body are very closely connected and poor oral health has already been linked to more serious health conditions in a number of clinical studies. These include rheumatoid arthritis, stroke and heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancers. In addition, it is nice to know that your smile looks its best at all times.
