Regular dental health examinations are essential for maintaining a healthy smile and to allow our dentists to deal with any issues as soon as possible – or prevent them altogether.
We believe that prevention is better than cure and want you to keep your teeth for life.
Our dentists at Northiam Dental will examine your teeth, and your mouth and gums, ask you questions about any problems or pain, and give ongoing support and advice on all the things you can do to maintain good oral health. We also check for signs of mouth cancer.
We may need to take x-rays to assess any hidden problems such as decay and bone loss due to gum disease, and refer you to one of our own hygienists.
Using the latest technology at our dental practice in Northiam, near Rye, we can show you close-up images of your teeth and gums and high quality, digital x-rays on a big screen so you can see any problem areas for yourself.
A new patient examination costs £68, not including x-rays, and a routine examination is £62, or you can spread the cost of your essential dental and hygiene care by joining one of our membership plans, which cost from just £25.40 a month and are ideal for those keen on preventing dental disease.
We know that regular professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar, combined with looking after your teeth and gums properly at home, will help keep your mouth healthy.
A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance, help you to keep your teeth and give you fresh breath.
Our Northiam dental hygienists Virginia Howes, Cassie Hayward and Zoe Givans will play a key role in your dental health journey, providing you and your family with vital preventive care and working with you to help you learn more about your mouth and dental health, and how to care for your mouth and its unique issues between visits to our practice.
With advances in modern dentistry, Virginia, Cassie and Zoe complement the treatments offered by our dentists to help you to keep more of your own natural teeth for longer.
Establishing a good oral health routine at an early age can be a huge benefit for your child’s general health and wellbeing.
It’s never too early for your child to learn how to care for their teeth, and at Northiam Dental we encourage very young children to attend with their parents and siblings so they become comfortable in the company of our family-friendly team.
By the time their first tooth shows, around the time of their first birthday, our dentists will already be familiar friendly faces and they’ll be calm and confident to take their place in the dentist’s chair.
We can help your children learn the correct habits that can set the foundations for them to enjoy a lifetime of having a healthy, comfortable mouth.
Our team of dentists are parents themselves and understand the challenges surrounding toothbrushing and healthy eating. They will do all they can to make your children’s dental appointments in Northiam, near Rye, relaxed and fun to help ensure their teeth remain strong and healthy for years to come.
