Three types of dentistry our dentist in Plymouth offers

If you’ve been to our dentist in Plymouth at some period in your life, then you might consider yourself an expert on the types of treatments that we have to offer. Here at Meavy Way Dental Practice, however, there is more than meets the eye. We offer standard appointments and treatments for things like toothache, but we also provide various other treatment options, including facial aesthetics and cosmetic dentistry! Have you ever thought about getting anti-wrinkle treatments or dermal fillers? Well, probably to your surprise, we also offer these treatments too!

However, in this short article, our dentist in Plymouth will run you through just three types of dentistry that we offer here at our dental practice. Be sure to get in contact if you’re curious about other treatments, though!


General dentistry


Possibly the most common of the three types we’ll cover in this article, our general dentistry treatments are sure to come in handy for plenty of reasons. We offer emergency dentistry appointments, during which our dentist in Plymouth will offer you a thorough examination and talk about the kind of discomfort you’re experiencing. We offer local anaesthetic to numb the area that we will be working on, before going ahead with the best treatment to offer you relief. These kinds of appointments will be the one you’re most familiar with, as they will often result in a tooth extraction.


Root canal treatments can be intimidating even through just the name, but you can rest assured that your safety and comfort is extremely important to us. A root canal is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected and is causing you an extreme amount of pain. We will always offer you a local anaesthetic and will be certain to make follow-up appointments to ensure that everything is healing as it should.


Preventive dentistry


This kind of dentistry is, again, on the more day-to-day side. Under this umbrella term we offer a variety of treatments for all kinds of problems, including gum disease, dental hygiene, bad breath, mouth cancer screening and children’s dentistry!


When it comes to dental hygiene, we want to make sure that your mouth and teeth are free from plaque and any other daily germs. Keeping on top of your dental hygiene can avoid any problems in the future. We offer teeth cleaning with warm water that can be an enjoyable and relaxing experience.


Mouth cancer is an extremely serious illness and one you can keep an eye on by visiting our dental clinic for yearly screenings. We will thoroughly examine your mouth for any signs of the cancer as well as taking a detailed dental history to see if you’ve had any of the symptoms. In the event that we do find lesions or lumps, we’ll have a further look with our scanning devices.


Cosmetic dentistry


Have you ever seen someone with whiter, straighter teeth than you thought possible? You can thank cosmetic dentistry for that! These treatments include teeth whitening, orthodontics (including clear braces) and dental implants. Your smile is one of the most important features you have and when you don’t have the confidence to smile, or you’re not happy with it, every part of your life can suffer.
