If you feel no pain and have a pretty healthy-looking smile, it can be tempting to skip a few dental appointments – but here at Mint Dental in Lambeth, we want to change that perception. A regular check-up with your friendly family dentist is the key to keeping that healthy smile for decades to come. From check-ups to fillings, discover more about the routine care you can expect from your dentist in London SE1.
Regular dental check-ups are proven to be key to preventing tooth loss and health problems. When carried out around twice a year, a dental examination gives your dentist the opportunity to identify any underlying problems, sometimes using x-ray, that may cause problems in the future. In this way, minor treatment can be carried out to correct a problem before it becomes more difficult to treat. This is not only beneficial in terms of convenience, but also cost-effective.
Research increasingly points to a proven connection between oral health and general health. Because regular dental check-ups play an important role in preventing dental problems, they can also be considered to be crucial to reducing the risk of chronic health conditions connected with poor oral health – including heart disease, stroke, pneumonia and Type 2 diabetes, to name a few.
Fillings are nothing to be afraid of nowadays – the procedure is fast and pain-free. At Mint Dental, we offer a range of filling options for patients in Lambeth, from cost-effective amalgam (metal) fillings to cosmetic tooth-coloured fillings – which are indiscernible from your natural teeth. Whichever you choose, you can rest assured that you’ll be in experienced and caring hands.
White fillings, or composites, use the latest bonding technology to build up existing teeth and restore them to their original form and function. Created from a plastic and glass resin, white fillings have vastly improved in strength in recent years and are consequently a very popular treatment at Mint Dental, particularly for visible front teeth. The advantages of white fillings are that they are minimally invasive, building on existing tooth structure and remove only the severely decayed part of the tooth. In some cases, areas of decay can be removed by air abrasion without discomfort or drilling – the ideal preparation before a filling.
It was my first visit to Mint Dental Clinic. I would just like to say that all the staff and Dentists with whom I have had contact have been friendly, helpful, sympathetic and understanding at what has been and still is a distressing and stressful time for me as a patien having toothache. The clinic is at least 200% better than my old clinic. Highly recommended if you need to visit a dentist for any reason.AP
Dr. Raj Patel was kind, fast and efficient but without rushing. I had a filling done on the lateral incisor which turned out great. I am a really sensitive when it comes to dentists but I had a comfortable time at this clinic. Everything was professionally handled from the reception to the after care. Keep on doing a good job!TT
y Aunt used services of this clinic and was extremely happy with the result. Prices were on the higher side (as in most places in London), however quality of the work was great. Her front tooth fell out and this clinic made a temporary implant to replace the missing tooth. She was also pleased with the services overall and the helpfulness of the staff.VA
I recently changed to Mint Dental after not being very impressed with my previous dentist. They were a great help, very friendly and made you feel comfortable. The teeth whitening service was excellent and I'm really pleased with the results. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.SK
