We all know about general dentistry such as fillings, root canals, dentures, braces and such. But there are reasons to visit a dentist in Golders Green that you may not have thought of. Here at De-ientes Dental we offer a wide range of treatments.
Snoring and sleep apnoea
You might be surprised to know that you can see a dentist in Golders Green for help with snoring and sleep apnoea. There are mouthpieces and oral devices that can stop snoring by holding the jaw in place and keeping the airways open. These mouthpieces are custom made using an impression of your teeth so they fit you comfortably.
Clenching and grinding the teeth
Another common night-time problem is clenching and grinding the teeth. You may not even realise you do it, but if you find yourself waking up with a headache or neck ache, it may be worth visiting a dentist in Golders Green to get it checked out. Grinding your teeth, also known as bruxism, can wear the teeth down over time so it is a good idea to visit the practice to talk about solutions.
Many adults go through life with crooked teeth and misaligned bites, because they aren’t aware of the orthodontic solutions now available. Invisible braces and aligners are very discreet, some are removable and there are a number of options available. Visit our practice and talk to a dentist in Golders Green if you would like to find out about straightening your teeth.
If you lost a tooth more than a few years ago, you may not be aware of the option of dental implants. These are tiny, titanium screws that replace the root of a missing tooth, and can be used to replace a single tooth, or to hold a bridge or dentures in place.
Oral cancer screening
New patients at De-ientes Dental are given an oral cancer screening as part of their introductory appointment with this dentist in Golders Green. This is to look for signs of mouth cancer, which if caught early, can be more easily treated. People who are at more risk are smokers, heavy alcohol users, and people who have previously had oral cancer.
