Hull, UK September 5th 2012 – Nervous dental patients can find it very difficult to find their way to the dentist’s chair but, the fact is, that leaving a problem is only likely to see it worsen. What may require a filling initially could soon need to be extracted. Tooth decay and other dental problems can prove very serious and patients need to seek dental assistance as soon as possible to prevent the problem from becoming much worse. It should always be the goal of the dentist, as well as the patient, to try and save the tooth. East Hull Dental Centre will always aim to save a tooth rather than remove it.
Saving the tooth is considered a priority. If work can be done that will prolong the life of a bad tooth then this will usually be considered the most desirable course of action. Natural teeth are better equipped for eating, are more comfortable for the patient, and require less maintenance, although regular maintenance is obviously required.
Extracting a single tooth may mean that a gap is left in the mouth, if that tooth is near the back. In some cases, it may be necessary to create a bridge over the gap or even have a denture fitted. Implants may be an option but patients should be aware that these may not be covered by the NHS so it may be necessary to pay private dental rates for such a choice of treatment.
East Hull Dental Centre is a family run dental clinic located in Hull. They pride themselves not only in the high quality of dental work provided but also in being able to offer a professional, helpful, and friendly environment free from the constraints of commercial dental practices.
