“We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.”
At Forest Road Dental Practice we like to listen to your concerns (if any) so that we can understand what you’re looking for. We use the time to carry out a thorough inspection of your teeth, gums, jaw joints, and also a head and neck cancer screening.
Following this, the dentist will then discuss any findings with you and provide you with all of your options and make recommendations so a completely tailored treatment plan that is right for you is produced.
Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend regular check-ups with the dentist so that we can help you to maintain great oral hygiene and spot possible problems early. If spotted early enough, we can guide you on ways to stop yourself needing that filling in future!
X-rays are recommended periodically to check in between teeth and the root area which are not visible to the eye. Occasionally there can be issues that patient’s aren’t aware of initially but need to address before it becomes a bigger problem.
At Forest Road Dental Practice we use a high tech digital x-ray system that not only lowers the x-ray dose administered, but is also processed much quicker for the patient and can be enlarged on the computer screen to discuss more clearly any findings. Before taking any x-rays, the dentist will always ask your explicit permission before doing so.
Latest evidence shows that taking x-rays during pregnancy is safe to do however, if there is no clear reason to do so, it can sometimes be possible if the expectant mother prefers, to delay the taking of any x-rays till after pregnancy.
