Crowns can be an ideal solution to improve the look of your teeth after damage or decay. They may be used to strengthen heavily filled or broken teeth, after a root filling or to hold a bridge or denture in place.

Crowns are made from a variety of materials which the dentists at Tavistock Drive Dental Care will advise you on before treatment. Crowns are made to match as closely as possible to the colour of your existing teeth.

You would need at least two appointments – the first for the preparation and the second, about two weeks later, for the fitting.  You will have a temporary crown whilst waiting for the new one.

If you would like to know more please contact us at 1 Tavistock Drive, Mapperley Park, NG3 5DU on 0115 9602717.

The staff at Tavistock Drive Dental Care wish all our patients a very Happy Christmas and healthy New Year.

We hope not to see you over the festive period, because if we do it means you are in need of emergency treatment!

Emergency appointments during the Christmas period will only be available to people who already attend the practice.  We will have cover in place from 24th December to 1st January 2019.  It may be possible to get an appointment on the same day depending on availability, but you are welcome to leave a message on our answerphone and we will get back to you within 24 hours. However – if you call wanting an appointment on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day, or the weekend when we would normally be closed anyway – there will be alternative cover through N.E.D.S on 0115 9420 878.

If you prefer, you can always go to the Nottingham Walk-in Centre.

If you have moved locality – register with a new dentist to give you peace of mind and book in for regular check ups so emergencies are as infrequent as possible!

About a year ago we opened up Thursday mornings in order to offer more hygienist appointments as they were becoming hard to find.

At the moment we are more likely to be able to fit you in within 2 weeks rather than six to eight weeks, which is a great improvement.

As Christmas is fast approaching and most of us want to look and feel at our best – make sure you book your hygienist appointment in good time.

It is a good habit to get into for parents to bring their children to the dentist from an early age. This prepares them for future visits, the earlier the visits begin the more relaxed the children will be. You should then take them for regular check ups as often as the dentist recommends.

Cleaning your child’s teeth should be a part of their daily routine and should begin as soon as the first teeth start to come through.

Try to limit sugary or acidic food and drinks to mealtimes only and if you want to give your child a snack try to stick to cheese, vegetables and fresh fruit.

It is important to supervise the cleaning until your child is at least seven. Once all of the teeth have come through use a small-headed soft toothbrush in small circular movements concentrating on one area at a time. Remember to brush behind teeth and onto the gums. Make tooth brushing a routine in the morning and last thing before your child goes to bed.

Always encourage your child and praise them for cleaning their teeth.  If you start to do this from their first tooth appearing the child will expect it and let you check without too much fuss!  Your dentist will show you how if you are unsure, so please ask.
