At Green Street Dental Practice we believe dental health checks and oral hygiene is important to spot potential issues early, for you, and your family. If you are looking for a new family-friendly dentist in East London or just a highly skilled practitioner, we are happy to solve your dental problems.
We provide a full range of dental treatments and outstanding service in a warm and welcoming environment.
During your health check your dentist will examine your mouth, paying attention to your teeth, gums and tongue. You may need X-rays to help us check for any warning signs related to gum disease or tooth decay.
Once we have assessed your dental health and answered any questions that you may have, we will be able to discuss potential treatment options that may suit you. Each treatment plan is individually tailored to your unique requirements.
Oral cancer screening
With your check-up we will also pay attention to the soft tissue in your mouth, looking for any changes and symptoms of oral cancer. Mouth cancer is responsible for over 1,800 deaths every year. That’s why it is so important to have regular checks-ups. The areas mouth cancer can affect are any area of your mouth, tongue and lips.
Teeth may be extracted for the following reasons
- A dental abscess has formed – root canal treatment may be possible as an alternative
- The tooth is too broken down to restore (for example due to deep decay or a fracture)
- As part of an orthodontic treatment plan to make space
- The tooth is loose due to gum disease
Your dentist will discuss options available to you fully prior to any extractions.
Dental care For Special Needs
Dental care For Mother & Baby
Visiting the dentist during pregnancy is safe and important for your dental health. However, through hormone changes, it is even more important getting a check-up during pregnancy that increases in developing gum disease which, in turn, can affect the health of your developing baby. All dentists recommend that you get your regular exams and dental cleanings throughout your pregnancy as needed.
Dental care For Older People
An essential part of elderly care in the home is oral hygiene making it possible to eat the foods you enjoy comfortably and to speak and smile with confidence. Brush at least twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste. Floss at least once a day. Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash once or twice a day. Visit your dentist on a regular schedule for cleaning and an oral exam so gum disease and decay can be prevented at any age.
Monday-Friday* 9:15am & 2:00pm
Patients who are in severe pain and have been treated at the practice in the last 2 years may be seen by any available dentist as an Emergency on short notice. Patients who have not been seen at the practice for longer may be seen depending on cancellations. The appointment will be used to get the patient out of pain and if treatment is needed more appointments may be scheduled.
Out Of Hours Services:
Outside of opening hours, if the emergency involves pain that cannot be controlled by painkillers, you are able to call the NHS helpline on 111.
Due to COVID-19, NHS 111 service is inundated with calls, and therefore we advise all our patients to first try painkillers and where necessary antibiotics prescribed by us. Please only call the 111 services in case of an emergency and please DO NOT turn up to hospital services as they will not be able to help.
