Save Money. Smile More.

If you need emergency treatment, you can book an emergency appointment online by using the BOOK ONLINE link on this page, or call us on 0151 295 9870 during practice opening hours. Emergency appointments are £59 each, which covers:

  • Emergency assessment.

  • X-rays.

  • Treatment diagnosis.

  • A written prescription (if required).

 

Any treatment costs can be determined once assessed. Emergency treatment is carried out in the same visit, provided there are no medical contraindications.

For cases of severe trauma due to an accident a patient will most likely need to return for further treatment at a later date, due to the amount of treatment usually involved. Where a patient requires removal of a painful wisdom tooth, they can be referred to a specialist oral surgeon, there is no additional charge for referral.

  • What is an air polish?
    An air polish uses a targeted jet of compressed air, water and specially formulated powder directed at the teeth to remove staining, plaque and calculus from the surfaces of the teeth, and underneath the gum line. A special air polishing dental handpiece is used to perform the treatment. The treatment can remove even stubborn stains from the tooth surface and helps to prevent tooth decay, bleeding gums, gum disease and tooth loss.
  • What is a scale & polish?
    A scale & polish uses a hand scaler, and ultrasonic scaler where necessary, to remove deposits of plaque and calculus on your teeth and the gum line. The dentist then polishes the teeth using a special paste to leave them bright and shiny.
  • What's the difference between air polishing and a scale & polish?
    An air polish is more comfortable, quicker and more effective than a scale & polish due to the design of the air polish handpiece. The powder used in an air polish is also less abrasive than the paste used in a scale & polish. It is considered more suitable than a scale & polish for patients with more sensitive teeth and gums.
  • What causes teeth staining?
    Teeth staining is very common, but some things can increase staining, including smoking/tobacco, coffee, red wine, curry, and a poor dental hygiene regime.
  • Is air polishing safe and pain-free?
    Yes, the powder used is also less abrasive than the paste used in a scale & polish. The treatment is pain-free and non-invasive. Your treatment at Hampton Dental Care will also be carried out by a GDC-registered professional.
  • How often should I book in for a hygiene treatment?
    This depends on the individual patients’ preference. Regular hygiene treatments help keep your teeth and gums looking and feeling fresh. They also help to prevent tooth decay, bleeding gums, gum disease and tooth loss. The procedures are completely safe, so more regular hygiene treatments will not harm your teeth or gums.
