Benefits of visiting our dentist in Thorpe Bay

Here at Thorpe Bay Dental, we offer check-ups and a range of treatments that help our patients to achieve good oral health as well as a great smile. Visiting the dentist in Thorpe Bay helps a person to maintain the health of their teeth and gums and their body in general. We alleviate any difficulties and offer a range of cosmetic treatments that can have a significant impact on a person’s confidence.

Good health


We recommend that our patients visit us every six months for a check-up. It is not necessary to have any issues prior to the check-up, in fact, that is what we are trying to prevent! One of the greatest benefits of visiting the dentist in Thorpe Bay on a regular basis is that we can identify any potential areas of concern before they become problematic.


For example, in many cases the patient is not aware of the early stages of a cavity. We can take immediate action to prevent it from progressing and compromising the integrity of the tooth. Gum disease is another issue that often goes unnoticed in its earliest stages. It causes bad breath which can be very detrimental to a person’s confidence. If allowed to progress untreated, gum disease will result in tooth loss which can be devastating for many people.


As well as causing tooth loss, gum disease has an impact on the general health of the patient. Because the mouth is literally the gateway to the rest of the body, when it becomes inflamed and diseased that inflammation can spread to other parts such as the heart, lungs and brain. Many studies have shown that gum disease is a major contributory factor in cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis and dementia.


Having regular check-ups with our dentist in Thorpe Bay means that we can help to stop gum disease in its tracks, allowing our patients to maintain their oral and general health.


Helping to restore


For our patients who have developed any problematic issues relating to their teeth or gums, we are here to help. We offer a comprehensive range of ways to restore oral health. This includes fillings, extractions, root canal treatment and crowns. We also provide dentures and dental implants as well as bridges. Therefore, the patient who needs treatment or who has developed issues while avoiding having check-ups should be assured that we will work with them on an individual basis to ensure that their teeth and gums are returned to good health.


Upgrading the look


Many of our patients are keen to upgrade their smile. This can be done in a variety of ways, depending on individual circumstances. For those who are self-conscious about their teeth being crooked or protruding, we offer a choice of different kinds of braces that includes clear aligners. Those who are keen to improve the shape, look and feel of their teeth may consider opting for veneers. If staining and yellowing has become an issue, we offer whitening treatments that can restore the smile to its youthful glory.


Visiting our dentist regularly helps to maintain both oral and general health. In addition, it allows the patient to identify ways that they can get the smile they have always wanted.
