At Bristol Dental Specialists we understand that there is no such thing as ‘basic’ dentistry. To maintain your oral health, it is vital to attend regular check-ups and hygienist appointments.
We are proud of our advanced treatments but place equally high importance on general dentistry care. General dentistry is orientated towards the prevention of dental problems and we place great emphasis on oral health and dental hygiene.
Regular dental check-ups allow us to identify any dental problems you may have as early as possible, they also keep your mouth healthy and pain free.
At each dental check-up, we will typically examine your teeth, gums and mouth. In addition, we may ask, and give advice, about your dental health, teeth-cleaning habits, your diet, and lifestyle choices such as smoking and alcohol use.
After your dental check-up, we will recommend a date for your next visit. We recall every 6 months. People with good oral health will probably need to attend only once every 6 months but those with more problems will need dental check-ups more often.
Our Dental Hygiene service is focused on maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. We place a big emphasis on prevention and will encourage you with tailored oral hygiene advice at each appointment helping you maintain your oral health, prevent dental decay, bad breath and tooth loss.
Fillings are one of the most basic methods of restoring teeth. They do exactly what their name suggests - they fill a hole in the tooth that has been caused by decay, they also play an important role in helping us to keep a tooth for many more years.
In the past fillings were always made from either gold or a silver-coloured alloy called amalgam. Both these materials are extremely durable and in some circumstances they are still the best choice available. But they both have one disadvantage – they do not match the natural white teeth in appearance.
At Bristol Dental Specialists, we use the most effective, modern, tooth-coloured materials to enable you to have white fillings. Unlike the more traditional grey amalgam fillings, the tooth-coloured ones look very natural, so no-one will be able to tell you have them.
Whether you are missing a few, or many of your teeth, dentures could be the solution for you. They can restore your smile and make eating enjoyable once again.
A denture is made from hard-wearing material that mimics the look of teeth and gums to give your mouth a natural appearance. At Bristol Dental Specialists, we provide excellent bespoke dentures that are constructed using the latest modern techniques and materials.
Correctly fitted dentures are designed to restore your lip support, therefore avoiding that ‘sunken face’ look that can appear following the loss of your teeth. You will be able to remove your dentures for cleaning, and our hygienist can show you how to best take care of your denture(s) and gums. As always it is important that you take extra care in your hygiene routine to avoid tooth decay and gum disease.
Root Canal treatments (Endodontics) are carried out when the inside of the tooth (the root or pulp) becomes infected or damaged. Infection and damage to the root can be very painful, creating inflammation with the risk of severe pain and swelling.
Root Canal Treatment eliminates the cause of the pain by completely removing the diseased or damaged tissue from the tooth. The root canal is meticulously cleaned, shaped and decontaminated, before securely filling it back up with a durable, inert material. This means you can be pain free whilst still keeping your original tooth.

"My husband went here for implants and it's fair to say the result was so good, Adrian (the implant surgeon) saved our marriage! 100% recommend."
"Thank you Adrian for all you have done. I am delighted with the result, the quality of the work is simply first class. The teeth are comfortable in my mouth, they look great, they look natural and people can't tell at all, they simply think I've got nice teeth."
