Looking good is only half the story for teeth

It’s great that everyone now has access to cosmetic dentistry treatments that allow them to have really great, confidence-boosting smiles, but let’s not forget that beauty is only skin-deep and that it’s possible to have great looking teeth that are quietly going rotten with decay and gum disease behind their veneers, dental implants, whitening or whatever else in the way of cosmetic dentistry you choose to have done.

General Dentistry in GlasgowThat’s why, at Dental FX in Glasgow, we place as great an emphasis on general dentistry as we do on cosmetic dentistry, and we want you to do so too.

The check-up

The check-up is the backbone of all dental treatments. It’s our bi-annual opportunity to have a good poke around in your mouth and check that everything is in good nick. We look at your natural teeth, your restorations, your gums, your fillings, everything. And if you are over about 40, you should get all the soft parts of your mouth checked too, to make sure there are no mouth cancers showing up.

If we do find something that needs fixing, whether it’s decay that needs to be removed, fillings that are wearing out, teeth that are starting to crumble from bruxism, or signs of gum disease, we can send you for more general dentistry treatments to sort them out.

We are an NHS dentist as well as a private dentist, so you may well be able to get your general dentistry treatment on the NHS. It will even be free if you are:

  • Not yet 18
  • Over 18 but in full-time college
  • Pregnant or nursing.

The scale and polish

We usually recommend that patients have twice-yearly scale and polish sessions too. Allowing our hygienist to remove all that plaque and tartar that your brush couldn’t get at not only makes your mouth feel great but extends the life of your teeth as it helps prevent gum disease.

For kids

Children are more prone to decay, so we can help them with fluoride treatments to harden up their tooth enamel and fissure sealants to stop decay-causing bacteria getting into crevices on their back teeth.

Healthy teeth and happy smiles

We are pleased to welcome patients to Dental FX, a well-established practice that offers general dentistry in Glasgow. We all know that a healthy mouth requires regular care and attention, but the state of your teeth and gums are intrinsically linked to your appearance as well as more general health.

A good programme of dental maintenance gives you a smile to enjoy as well. You can rest assured that we are committed to every aspect of your oral care. We carefully monitor for early signs of decay and any other problems, as prompt detection of decay, cavities and other issues usually means that treatment is easier and more effective. Gum health is also critical so we watch for signs of disease such as redness, swelling or bleeding.

General Dentistry in GlasgowComprehensive care

Looking after your dental health goes beyond your teeth and gums so we also examine your head and neck. Enlarged or tender glands or lymph nodes can indicate infection or disease, and it is usually dentists who spot problems such as mouth cancers. We use a variety of techniques including x-rays and impressions to ensure that we are providing a complete examination. As well as regular dental services, we also offer cosmetic work to ensure that your smile is beautiful. We can straighten crooked teeth to improve an ineffective bite and also enhance your appearance. For patients with discoloured, damaged or missing teeth, there is a range of corrective procedures, and we can provide replacement teeth where necessary.

Fitting into your lifestyle

Many of our patients are busy. We offer early evening appointments so that it is more convenient for you to have check-ups and treatment. We accept NHS and private patients of all ages and aim to provide good value for money. Private patients wishing to spread the cost of more expensive procedures can choose from 0% interest loans, or loans with interest, which are repayable over a longer period. We are proud of the services we offer and are respected by other dentists who send patients to us on a referral basis.

Make a long-term investment in your health and appearance and join the hundreds of patients who trust us as their dentist.
