A review of specialist dentistry services at our modern Bedford clinic.
Most patients who visit a dentist will usually do so for their regular check up, hygienist visit or minor treatment, such as a filling.
This isn’t always the case though, and, from time to time, more extensive treatment may be needed to save a natural tooth.
Some of these treatments fall into the category of ‘specialist dental care’ and usually require additional training by the dentist who carries them out.
The Dental Centre Bedford is pleased to offer three of these specialisms at our modern dental practice. Each one plays an important role in restoring a patient’s teeth when a minor procedure would not be sufficient. Our experienced dentists are here to make sure that everything possible is done to help you to keep your natural teeth. Where this is not possible, through decay or damage being too extensive, our prosthodontist can help to replace any lost teeth using artificial means.
Let’s take a closer look at the three specialisms that we currently offer.
The endodontist is primarily concerned with what happens inside of the tooth. This generally means looking after a tooth that has been infected in the root canals. This is a problem that cannot be ignored and can lead to intense pain if not treated promptly. The only way to save a tooth that is infected in this manner, is through the use of root canal therapy. We have discussed this role relatively recently, and more information about it can be found over at this blog.
