Invisalign Open Day - Stratford
All of your routine dental needs are covered under one roof!
Which means restoring teeth to their natural state with as little damage to their different tissues as possible.
To do this we apply the latest technology to mimic natural mechanics, known as the biomimetic principle.
For instance, we rebuild damaged teeth as they are constructed naturally, in layers, and we emphasise that for a missing tooth, a dental implant is the best solution in terms of how it supports the rest of your oral health — just like a healthy natural tooth.
Our range of treatments often complement each other, for instance teeth straightening can go very well with veneers and teeth whitening, for a full mouth makeover. Being able to see the same team for all your needs makes these sorts of life-changing transformations run smoother and quicker at Highfield, so you’ll get to enjoy the new you even sooner.
Let’s be proactive, not reactive!
We think it is really important to provide you with lots of support and advice about the best ways to look after your teeth and mouth at home. Our dentists and dental hygienists will discuss personal recommendations at your appointment, but our general advice to ensure the long term health of your mouth includes;
Regular dental health checks. Being able to identify areas for concern as soon as possible reduces the risk of pain or further damage. Our clinicians will also be able to spot signs of gum disease and any changes that could indicate mouth cancer.
Regular hygienist appointments to remove any plaque or tartar build-up and check on the health of your gums.
Brushing your teeth twice a day, especially before bedtime, in addition to using floss or an interdental brush to clean between teeth every day.
Avoiding too many sugary or acidic foods.
We know the health of your whole family is important, which is why we are happy to welcome children to the practice. Working closely with families and patients of all ages means we can help everyone get a great understanding of the best ways to achieve and maintain a healthy mouth, which helps to prevent problems in the future.
At Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic in Southampton we want to help you maintain a beautiful, healthy smile for life and regular dental hygiene appointments can help you do just that. Most patients will benefit from two hygiene appointments per year, but more frequent visits may be suitable for you if you suffer with gum disease or periodontitis.
Sometimes the chewing surface of a tooth becomes damaged or decayed and requires a little more repair than a filling can offer, but does not require a full crown. In these cases, an inlay or an onlay can be a great solution.
If your natural tooth is damaged or decayed, we offer a range of different treatments here at Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic. Crowns and bridges offer a means to use the healthy remaining tooth structure as a stable base to maintain a seamless, full and natural-looking smile.
Our minimally invasive approach means that our team will always try to restore and save your natural teeth wherever possible. If a tooth is infected but otherwise strong and healthy, one of the treatment options we offer is root canal treatment.
At Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic in Southampton, we always take a minimally invasive, gentle approach to dentistry, which means restoring teeth to their natural state with as little damage to their different tissues as possible. However, despite everyone’s best efforts, taking the tooth out is sometimes the best option. Tooth removal is the very last resort for us, and we always try to plan for replacement of the tooth prior to an extraction so you are fully aware of the treatments available.
Who would have thought a dentist would be a pleasure to go to. Great staff, amazing building refurb and of course excellent treatment
Helping nervous patients to receive the treatment they need.
Dentistry doesn’t have to be scary, but fear of the dentist’s chair affects lots of people. Many endure toothache, avoid certain food and lose the confidence to smile because they are just too anxious to take a trip to the dentist. We understand what it feels like to be worried about getting the treatment and care you deserve, so we have designed a patient experience to help people just like you.
Same day and out of hours appointments when you need them.
We allocate appointments every day for dental emergencies. Please call us as early as possible so we can try to see you on the same day. If you require emergency treatment outside of our opening hours, please call us on 0749 651 4205 where you will find more information on our answerphone.
While you are waiting for your emergency appointment, there could be some steps you can take to help relieve some of the pain and discomfort you are experiencing. We know it can be scary if you’re in pain, but if you can, try to stay calm.
You could try dissolving a teaspoon of salt in a mug of boiling water and use it as a warm mouthwash to relieve irritation and reduce swelling
If you have knocked a tooth out, put it in a glass of milk and take it to your appointment. Try not to touch it too much and don’t use any cleaning products on it.
If you are experiencing pain surrounding one specific tooth, it is possible that something has gotten stuck between your teeth or inside the gum tissue. Use a cold compress to help reduce swelling and numb irritation.
