Pain Free Dentistry
Making it as comfortable as possible
Corona Virus – Dental Update
Issue Date: 29/05/2020
We are very pleased to announce that Life Dental & Wellbeing will reopen on Monday 8th June.
However there will be some changes to the way we work which we will let you know about in due course, and we would appreciate your patience and understanding whilst we finalise our operating procedures.
In the meantime, if you have a dental problem please phone 07566 781469 between the hours of 9-11am any weekday morning and we will advise you as to how we are able to help.
Outside these hours and at weekends or Bank Holidays please call the practice for further information that will guide you through the out of hours service.
We have missed you all very much and would like to thank you for your continued support of the practice and your understanding during what has been a very difficult time behind the scenes.
Take care, stay safe and we really will see you very soon.
Ben Pearson and the team
Not everyone enjoys coming to the dentist or hygienist for treatment, so at Life Dental & Wellbeing we do our utmost to ensure your visit is as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
A few little things can make all the difference to your experience and that is why our surgeries are air conditioned and we encourage you to bring your own music with you if it helps you relax.
We give you lip balm before your treatment starts to help prevent your lips cracking and where possible we use a less powerful aspirator (the water sucker!) which is less sensitive on your teeth.
If appropriate we will apply a desensitising toothpaste to your teeth prior to cleaning them which along with warm water in the scaler can make the whole procedure considerably more comfortable.
If you need to have an injection we use a powerful anaesthetic gel on your gum to numb it beforehand. The anaesthetic is prewarmed to body temperature which can also minimise the discomfort as do the ultra-fine short needles we use.
