Considering you and your teeth have a lifetime ahead together, it makes sense to do all you can to take care of them well, so they can take care of you for many years to come. Your teeth and gums play an important role in how you eat, speak, smile and present to the world generally.
Practising good oral hygiene, having regular dental check-ups and attending to needed treatments as required will help to prevent or deal with decay, inflammation or injuries and contribute to your overall good health. At YFDL our dedicated practitioners are passionate about helping you and your family achieve the best results for your dental health.
We believe in giving you every advantage to ensure your teeth and gums will be as healthy and beautiful as possible. At our dental clinic in Liverpool we’ll help with all aspects of your dental hygiene, periodontal therapy, dental fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays, children’s dental and more, so you and your family can have healthy and confident smiles. Here is a little about some of the services we provide:
Children’s oral health is vital from an early age, setting good dental habits for life. We aim to make a visit to the dentist a fun experience, quelling any fears of the dentist early on. Our Dr. Wilcox is an excellent children’s dentist who will ensure your children’s general dental health is in check.
Dental fillings are a common dental treatment for tooth decay, teeth wear and erosion to tooth enamel. A dental filling can repair your damaged tooth, preventing further erosion and keeping your teeth healthy for years to come. At Your Family Dentist, Liverpool we use tooth-colored filling material so that your new filling seamlessly bonds to your tooth, making it practically invisible.
Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Similar to fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays are used to treat and stop tooth decay in damaged teeth. Fabricated in house using our 3D scanner and milling machine we fit and bond them to cover the biting surface of your tooth. Inlays and onlays are an alternative to full dental crowns.
Gum Disease and Periodontal Therapy
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease is a common weakening and inflammation of the gums in your mouth. Healthy gums are vital for your oral health, and are closely linked to your body’s overall health. Regular visits to your dentist for periodontal therapy can prevent more severe tooth decay, tooth loss and systemic illnesses.
Dental hygiene is imperative for good dental health and overall wellness – and it all starts with good oral habits. Your dental hygienist is specially trained to provide individualized preventative treatment and remove stains and built up calculus on your teeth and gums. She will teach you about correct care to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
