Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement - 29 April 2020

CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC RESTRICTIONS

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DENTAL SURGERY IS CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR ALL ROUTINE DENTAL APPOINTMENTS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

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 to provide advice to patients and where necessary provide care in the form of prescriptions for analgesics and antibiotics.  We are working together with other local practices and face to face consultations and treatment, if necessary, will be provided for clinically urgent problems at our local emergency hub after telephone consultation with a dentist.

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 NHS 111.

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.

Children's Teeth

It is recommended that children go to the dentist with their parents as soon as possible. You should then take them regularly, as often as your dentist recommends. This will let them get used to the noises, smells and surroundings and prepare them for future visits. The earlier these visits begin, the more relaxed the child will be.

First (or 'baby' or ‘milk') teeth usually start to appear when your child is around 6 months old. All 20 baby teeth should appear by the age of 2. The first permanent 'adult' molars (back teeth) will appear at about 6 years, before the first baby teeth start to fall out at about 6 to 7.

The permanent 'adult' teeth will then replace the 'baby' teeth. It is usually the lower front teeth that are lost first, followed by the upper front teeth shortly after. All permanent teeth should be in place by the age of 13, except the ‘wisdom' teeth. These may appear any time between 18 and 25 years of age.

All children are different and develop at different rates.
