CORONRONVIRUS PANDEMIC RESTRICTIONS

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SURGERY IS OPEN FOR EMERGENCIES AND ONGOING TREATMENTS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. THE SURGERY IS ALSO NOW OPEN FOR ROUTINE DENTAL APPOINTMENTS. PATIENTS ARE ADVISED TO PHONE THE PRACTICE TO BOOK THEIR NEXT CHECK-UP APPOINTMENTS.

IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY PLEASE PHONE THE DENTAL SURGERY ON 01482 506004.

During these unprecedented times all dental surgeries are unable to provide the normal care that patients are used to.  Our practice will remain open during normal working hours for triage to provide advice to patients, and to prioritise needs and arrange appointments accordingly. 

If you are calling outside of normal hours and have an urgent dental problem, please consider if this could wait until the following day or over the weekend rather than accessing the out of hours services. Call the surgery on (01482) 506004 for assistance and information.

If calling out of hours and the problem is extremely severe please contact the out of hours service through NHS111.

If your dental problem includes uncontrolled bleeding and a swelling that is causing breathing problems this is an emergency and you should go to A&E.

What to Expect

News

25% of Children Affected by Tooth Decay in England

A survey by Public Health England found that 25 per cent of 5 year olds had experience tooth decay, and on average 3 or 4 of their teeth were affected. Most of the tooth decay reported also went untreated.

The same survey also reported that tooth extraction was one of the most common hospital procedures for under 5’s, and it was the sixth most common. Furthermore, for children aged between 5 and 9 years old, it was the most common reason for hospital admissions.

Tooth decay is largely preventable, and both children and adults should follow these simple steps to take care of their teeth and prevent decay:

  • Using a fluoride toothpaste brush twice a day
  • Once a day clean between your teeth with floss or an interdental cleaner
  • Eat well balanced meals and limit your snacking

Of course the final step is to visit your dentist regularly for a professional clean and oral examination.

Ayer Dental are now accepting new private and NHS patients. Call 01482 506004 to book an appointment today.
