What is a Perfect Dentist?

Other than the obvious criteria to be sought for in a dentist, such as qualifications, experience and expertise, the idea of the perfect dentist will differ for many of us. If, for example, you have a fear of the dentist then you will want to find a dentist who can ease your fears through attentive customer service and a choice selection of the latest and most modern dental phobia treatments. Or, if you are in need of an implant dentist to help replace missing teeth, then you will likely desire the above and a dentist who is also highly experienced in the field of implants. My Perfect Dentist aims to provide you with the necessary information so that you can make an informed decision when choosing your dentist.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental treatment carried out to improve the aesthetics of your teeth. Cosmetic dental work can include veneers, crowns, bridges, cosmetic orthodontics, composite (white) fillings or dental implants. On this site, you can find detailed information regarding each of these treatments. In particular, there is further information about dental implants, including how they are placed, and pre-treatment (e.g. bone grafts and sinus lifts). For information about any of the above treatments, visit the cosmetic page.

What is orthodontics?

The branch of dentistry concerned with managing improper ' bites' (jaw alignment) is orthodontics. Today, there is more choice than ever for people deciding to opt for orthodontics. Whatever your age, there is an orthodontic system to suit you. For information about each type of orthodontic treatment, visit pages dedicated to invisible braces such as invisible braces or fast-acting braces such as Inman aligner and six month smiles.

What does general dentistry involve?

If you would like to find out about procedures you might be undergoing, or just want to learn about common dental treatments, visit the general dentistry page.

Here you can read about fillings, crowns, bridges, root canal treatment, gum disease, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, or dentures. There is also information about tooth decay and dental hygiene. Within the dental hygiene pages, you can learn tips on how to maintain oral hygiene, gather information about toothpastes and mouthwashes.

There is also a resource for people with anxiety or phobia of the dentist. You can read about how to treat the fear and relax when undergoing dental treatment.
