At Tavistock Drive Dental Care we want to ensure patients are able to make informed decisions on their treatment and care.

To enable this we give New Patients a full initial examination and take x-rays (unless you have had some taken very recently or if there is a medical reason for avoiding this), to ensure the dentist can diagnose any potential problems at the earliest stages.

We understand that this is an added expense but an x-ray allows the dentist to see what is happening below the surface of the teeth and gums.

Your teeth may look perfectly healthy but there may be dental decay under the tooth enamel.  The dentist may also see any possible infections or bone loss.

The dentist will show you the x-rays and explain any problems identified.  You would then have the opportunity to raise any concerns and discuss any possible treatment options.

You would always be given a full written estimate of any treatment options and allowed to consider these before making any decisions.

Currently x-rays are charged at £12 each, they are a very effective tool for preventive care of your teeth and smile.
