Our philosophy at The Langley Dental Clinic is to provide quality care and an outstanding service to all our patients in all areas of general dentistry. Therefore as well as offering advanced treatments we also cater for all your general dentistry needs, from routine examinations to any treatment you may require.
Your first visit
Getting to know you, and as much about your dental history as possible, is essential to us at Langley Dental & Beauty Clinic. Your age, general health and lifestyle all impact upon the state of your teeth so your first appointment will take approximately 45 minutes to enable us to understand your needs and what you would like to achieve.
This also gives you a chance to relax and get to know your dental team. We at Langley Dental & Beauty Clinic understand how stressful it can be to visit the dentist so we do our best to put you at your ease and reassure you of the skills and experience that will keep your teeth and mouth as healthy and pain free as possible.
A complete dental check up
Your first dental check (and every subsequent one) at Langley Dental & Beauty Clinic, will consist of a thorough visual examination of your whole mouth not just your teeth and gums. Many areas of your mouth are not visible to the naked eye – between your teeth for example. We may, therefore, need to take X-rays to give us an accurate evaluation of your dental health. We use the Schick digital system that enables X-rays to be taken with a lower dose of radiation. Incorporated in the system is a panoral machine that enables an X-ray of your whole mouth, should this be required. Digital photos may also be taken of your teeth and mouth to enable us to see a clearer picture of your treatment requirements.
The findings of your examination, and available options, will always be discussed with you so you can make informed decisions about your oral health care. We then devise a treatment plan to suit your individual needs, together with a written itemised statement of costs, for your consideration.
You can help keep your teeth healthy
Good oral hygiene and regular visits to us here at Langley Dental & Beauty Clinic are reliable ways of keeping your teeth healthy AND minimising expensive, stressful treatment. We advise regular dental check-ups (usually six-monthly) to ensure problems are detected early and to give any necessary treatment the greatest possible chance of success. Regular visits to our hygienist are also important because their ‘deep clean’ is vital in spotting and minimising diseases such as periodontal (gum infections). Did you know that the food we eat combines with the saliva and bacteria present in the mouth to form a sticky coating called plaque? The bacteria present in the plaque causes the gum infection if not removed professionally by a hygienist AND kept at bay by your effective cleaning!
Reassuring nervous patients
A visit to the dentist can be very daunting, making many patients feel very nervous and anxious. Our experienced, friendly staff aim to make your visit more comfortable and less stressful by taking things slowly and talking you through every step. Don’t let a dental phobia stop you having great looking, healthy teeth – let Langley Dental & Beauty look after you. By letting us know your needs and fears it can help us help you. Of course you can always pop across to our beauticians and have a massage or tanning session to recover completely!
If you need emergency treatment please phone us at Langley Dental & Beauty as soon as possible and we’ll do our best to book you an appointment on the same day – whether you’re an existing patient or not. In most circumstances, treatment can be carried out at this emergency appointment though follow up appointment(s) may also be necessary.
