If we had bad toothache, we would book an emergency appointment to see our dentist. But if we have lost a back tooth or have a twinge on one side of our mouth, we can often accommodate this by chewing on the other side or choosing different foods.
At Castle Gate Dental Practice in Dursley, we sometimes see patients who have lost several back teeth, have failing crowns or bridges or wobbly dentures. Some haven’t eaten a juicy steak for years and others avoid going out for meals with friends because they feel so embarrassed. We also hear from patients who cover their mouths when they speak. Do any of these scenarios sound familiar to you?
Unhurried, calm dental care
Our aim is for our patients to have faith and confidence in their teeth, have their concerns and problems fixed and enjoy predictable results from their treatment. We want them to feel proud to show off their smiles – not hide them behind their hands or smile with their lips tightly shut.
