At our clinic in London, we like to ensure that our patients receive a wide variety of dental treatments. Choosing the right orthodontic or cosmetic treatment can be tough, which is why we aim to educate our patients on the treatment option that best suits them, and their individual dental needs. Our clinic offers an array of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry options.

marylebone-dentistCrowns and bridges at the dentist in Marylebone

Crowns and bridges are used to replace one (or even several teeth) within the mouth. Our full range of crown and bridgework includes the use of dental implants, ensuring maximum stabilisation within the mouth. Individuals may require a single tooth replacement, or a full mouth restoration, both methods are implemented by one of our dental implant specialists.

Do you offer cosmetic dentistry at your clinic in Marylebone?

Yes! Our clinic does not only offer general, and restorative dentistry, but also cosmetic dental options. Our dentist in Marylebone offers our patients a wide array of cosmetic options, such as teeth whitening, veneers, and discreet white fillings.

Tooth whitening we offer our patients

Tooth whitening has risen in popularity dramatically in recent years, due to the rise in ‘at home’ whitening treatments. Tooth whitening uses strong chemicals (such as bleach), which is why it needs to be done to a high professional dental standard. We understand that tooth whitening can cause sensitivity, which is why we offer both a safe ‘at home’ and ‘in surgery’ option for our patients.

What are veneers, and why may these be a suitable cosmetic option for me?

Dental veneers (also commonly referred to as porcelain veneers) are essentially wafer thin caps that are adhered to the surface of the teeth. Both composite and porcelain veneers are glued to the surface of the teeth using a special dental glue, whilst causing minimal damage to the natural teeth. Veneers can be used to restore damaged or stained teeth within the mouth, therefore increasing an individual’s aesthetic appearance, and increasing self- confidence.

Do you offer more subtle fillings?

Yes! Traditional metal amalgam fillings can be considered as unsightly, patients may therefore wish for a more subtle alternative. White fillings are virtually invisible in the mouth, and have the positive aspect of a zero per cent mercury content within the materials used.

How much do your dental treatments cost?

At our dental clinic in London, we inform our patients that each dental treatment pricing differs greatly depending on the severity of the case, as well as the dental clinic they choose for their treatment. During an initial consultation, we will provide a detailed dental payment plan for our patients, depending on their dental situation, so they are always aware of the potential costs.

Spread the costs

At our clinic we understand that our patients may prefer to pay for their dental treatments in instalments. Instalments are available to our private patients, and can involve a payment plan over a period of one year, to reduce the financial burden that more complex dental work can entail.

Individuals choosing a dental clinic may base their decision on a wide array of factors, such as location, and the quality of dental treatment provided. At our dentist In Marylebone we offer our patients a high level of dental professionalism, as well as a clean, and comfortable dental environment.

At our London clinic, we understand that our patients may require a wide array of dental, and cosmetic treatments. Each patient may look for different things when undergoing their chosen dental treatment, which is why we aim to treat each dental case individually. One example of the treatments we provide are dental hygiene services.

Dental hygiene

Our clinic firmly believes that prevention is much better than cure, which is why we attempt to educate our patients on the key factors in maintaining a good level of dental hygiene.

Dental hygiene is key to maintaining positive oral health, which is why we aim to prioritise this at our clinic in Marylebone.

Our dental prevention programme aims to reduce negative symptoms such as bad breath, and the further development of gum disease, tooth loss, and bleeding.

Do you offer restorative dentistry?

Yes! Restorative dentistry is essentially a form of dentistry that aims to restore full functionality to the mouth and teeth. One example of  restorative dentistry we provide are dental implants.

How they work

Dental implants are just one example of the many dental treatments we provide. Dental implants can be used to stabilise dentures, they can also support single crowns.. Aside from dental implants supporting single crowns, they can also provide support for bridges. This type of dental restoration can also prevent jawbone loss and stop surrounding teeth from becoming damaged.

Within London, we understand that there is a wide choice of dental clinics, and it can be hard to select one in which to receive your chosen dental treatment. At our dental clinic in Marylebone, we are situated at a key central location within the city, and can therefore be easily accessed by our patients.

What are endodontics?

Endodontics is essentially the dental treatment of the pulp which is the inside of the tooth, as well as surrounding nerves and tissues. An endodontist is a dental professional who specialises in saving damaged or decaying teeth. One example of an endodontic dental treatment is root canal work.

It happens to the best of us. We are going about our daily lives when all of a sudden, we are struck by an overwhelming discomfort under one of our teeth.

emergency-appointmentWhile almost everyone is aware of when it is time to visit their GP for routine conditions, or their A&E for emergency conditions, few people know when an emergency dental appointment is needed over a routine check-up.

This presents an obvious problem for both the individual and the dental professional; the prospective patient may end up waiting with an uncomfortable condition for a longer time than necessary and when they finally get to their dental appointment, the dental professional may need to conduct a more serious procedure than initially required.

At Plowman and Partners, we know that nobody wants to be on the receiving end of a dental emergency, but we are able to offer our patients emergency access to our dentist in Marylebone. We will aim to see you on the same day as you contact us, as we know that time is of the essence when you have an urgent dental issue.

But what scenarios warrant an emergency visit to our dentist in Marylebone? Read on to find out about our most commonly seen dental emergencies.

Unmanageable discomfort

Discomfort is subjective but when we discuss emergency dentistry, we are talking about a disruptive pain that does not respond to over-the-counter painkillers and interferes with your day.

It is vital you book an appointment to see our emergency dentist in Marylebone if you are experiencing an unusual level of discomfort; pain that resembles throbbing or burning need to be examined immediately, as this could indicate a dental abscess.

Chipped tooth

A chipped tooth may seem like a minor issue but it requires urgent dental treatment, even if it does not hurt.

A chipped tooth is more prone to cracking or breaking and needs to be seen by a dental professional who can repair cracks in the tooth and restore the chipped area.

Sudden swelling

Swelling in the mouth is usually benign but requires an emergency appointment, especially if it is beginning to impact on your ability to breathe or is painful.

Swelling could indicate an abscess, unerupted teeth or may be a sign of an undiagnosed condition; although disconcerting, it is always worth getting any unusual lumps and bumps looked at.

Lost filling or crown

Fillings and crowns often fall out and it is important that you get to see a dental professional as soon as possible to have them restored.

Delaying a visit to our emergency dental practitioner could expose the pulp of the tooth to bacteria, which could lead to a destructive infection – not worth the risk!

Broken or damaged brace

As hardy as they are, metal braces are not immune to damage.

If you suspect that your brace has become damaged, contact our emergency service immediately; we can assess the damage and temporarily reset the brace, so it is intact when you visit your orthodontist.

Do you wake up in the morning with fatigue? Do you frequently feel sleepy throughout the day? Does your partner moan at you for keeping them awake with your snoring?

dentist-maryleboneYou are not alone! One of the most common of all sleep-related disorders, sleep apnoea can play havoc with your life. The most common, obstructive sleep apnoea, is more serious than a simple snore; it can cause your breathing to become shallow and may lead to your breath intermittently stopping as you sleep

How can a trip to our team at Plowman and Partners help you resolve sleep apnoea? Our dentist in Marylebone has a team of dedicated staff, who are experienced in identifying the root cause of your sleep apnoea and providing you with practical, realistic solutions.

At Plowman and Partners, our experienced dentist in Marylebone will take an imprint of your teeth and 3-D model of your mouth, to create a custom-fitted, oral device. This device will prevent your lower jaw sliding back while you sleep and therefore, prevent you from snoring!

But, what are the practical advantages of our dentist in Marylebone making this device for you?

Non invasive

If you have been searching for a solution to your snoring for a while now, you may have heard about the surgical options that are available to widen your airway – now that will give you a sore throat!

The devices we offer at Plowman and Partners are non invasive and are made from a flexible but durable plastic, which is a much cheaper option when compared to surgery.

Portable and removable

Do you travel a lot for work?

Oral devices are both portable and removable; supplied in a small carry case, you will be able to transport them safely with you wherever you go, guaranteeing both you and your partner a good night’s sleep.

Easy to use

Many people worry about sleeping with a removable object in their mouths, but there really is nothing to worry about.

At Plowman and Partners, many of our patients who use anti snore devices have reported feeling surprised at how comfortable these devices are to wear to bed and describe them as being extremely easy to use.

No buttons to press, no medication required; just pop the device in your mouth and you are ready for those forty winks.

High success rate

An obvious downside of any kind of surgical intervention for sleep apnoea and snoring are the possible side effects; discomfort, healing time, not to mention medication and dietary restrictions that may be needed post operation.

The oral devices we create for our patients at Plowman and Partners have an extremely high, long term success rate. As they are made from durable plastic, they are also hard wearing, meaning each user has many years service out of one device – plus, no uncomfortable side effects!

If your partner is ready to exile you to the couch to gain a good night’s sleep, come along to Plowman and Partners and let’s banish that snore together! Call us today!

Do you wake up in the morning with a sore lower jaw? Do you suffer from headaches, neck pain and migraines?

marylebone-dentistSuffering from this cluster of symptoms could be indicative of a condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). This disorder is caused by a misalignment of the teeth on the upper and lower jaws as well as misfitting jaws; simply put, when you close your mouth, your teeth and jaws do not slot together correctly and when you are asleep, you are grinding your teeth together to try and alleviate this issue, which is very uncomfortable!

At Plowman and Partners, we are aware of how disruptive TMJ can be and our dentist in Marylebone can offer you a range of different techniques, devices and treatment options to minimise the impact that this extremely common condition has on your life.

Braces

Not the most popular of our options but our dentist in Marylebone has seen the positive impact that wearing a brace can have on TMJ.

As this disorder is primarily caused by misaligned teeth, the easiest way to resolve it permanently is with a brace and, depending on the severity of your misalignment, our dentist in Marylebone may be able to fit you with a removable or invisible brace, until your teeth are realigned.

Sleep guard

As previously mentioned, the grinding associated with those early morning headaches occurs when you are asleep, which can make it more difficult to control.

Luckily, there are a range of sleep guards to wear during those forty winks which will prevent you from grinding your teeth together and will stop any damage to the tops of your teeth. These are custom made to fit your teeth and are constructed from a smooth, but durable plastic, making them easy to wear without disrupting your sleep pattern.

Reconstruction

Our team may decide that you might benefit from some minor reconstruction work on your teeth, to even out the surfaces and realign any displaced teeth.

Often used alongside sleep guards and massages, these reconstructions usually involve covering uneven teeth with a layer of porcelain, to make your bite more even, reducing the need to grind and brux.

Massages

We all like a massage when we have stiff muscles in our backs and it is no different when our jaw muscles are sore.

At Plowman and Partners, our dental team can provide you with specialist massages, to help relax overworked muscles affected by TMJ alongside teaching you how to perform these massages on yourself when you wake up each morning.

Done each day, this will alleviate any associated pain in the jaw from grinding in the night-time.

Exercises

Another way we help manage the discomfort of TMJ is to show you how to exercise your jaw muscles, to strengthen them, so they do not become overworked by nocturnal bruxing.

Performed everyday, alongside the massages, this technique reduces the associated discomfort, but does not treat the underlying condition and is therefore used as a complementary treatment for TMJ.

One of the most feared and misunderstood of all dental procedures is that of the root canal.

A fairly common and straightforward process, this endodontic procedure is designed to restore function to a tooth that has recently experienced extreme trauma, either due to infection or extreme impact. We look at some lesser known benefits of this procedure carried out by our practice.

root-canal-treatmentMany of our patients at Plowman & Partners are apprehensive about our dentists in Marylebone performing this treatment, without knowing that root canal treatments actually provide a wide range of benefits for their teeth and promote overall better dental health.

Our team of dentists in Marylebone perform root canal treatments everyday and can testify to the many advantages of having this procedure performed.

Reduces discomfort

More often than not, when a patient visits our dentists in Marylebone for root canal treatments, they have usually just been through a very painful dental infection. Something everyone dreads.

While they may still be overcoming the infection during the root canal, having the pulp of the tooth removed reduces any associated discomfort that comes with a dental infection and allows them to leave our surgery feeling more comfortable.

Restores tooth function

As visually important as our teeth are, if you have a tooth in your mouth that cannot take the pressure associated with chewing food without causing discomfort, then that tooth has no function.

Post root canal treatment, your tooth will be able to handle everyday functions again.

No gaps

Unfortunately, the only real alternative to a root canal that will also stop any future infections is to remove the tooth.

If the tooth that has the infection is located at the front of your mouth, this can cause a very obvious problem. Gaps in your smile can knock your confidence, put pressure on surrounding teeth and can cause your jawbone to recede.

Prevents infections

Dental infections are truly awful to experience and if you need a root canal, it is likely you are in the midst or have recently had one.

Part of the procedure of endodontic therapy involves gently drilling down to the pulp of the tooth and scraping out all of the bacteria that led to the initial infection. As unappealing as this sounds, it is essential to ensure that the bacteria does not spread to your other teeth and blood stream, which can cause sepsis or more complex infections.

Restores normal sensation

Have you ever had a filling and experienced that numbing sensation?

Many of our patients at Plowman & Partners assume that this is how their teeth will feel after a root canal is performed; after all, how can it feel anything without a nerve?

There are many nerves in your mouth and nerves surrounding the tooth will allow you to feel and process normal biting and chewing sensations.If you know you may need a root canal don’t delay, speak with a member of our team today.

It can happen to the best of us; we are going about our regular daily routine when suddenly, we are hit with a bout of dental pain that knocks us backwards.

Dentist in MaryleboneAt Plowman & Partners, we are often concerned by how few of or patients are aware of which situations warrant an emergency appointment with one of our dentists in Marylebone. We have compiled a list of our most commonly seen dental emergencies with conditions and scenarios that should be treated as an emergency, to help you identify when you, or a loved one, needs same day treatment.

Intense pain

Pain is a somewhat subjective experience, but if you are worried about the level of discomfort you are feeling, it may be time to see your dentist in Marylebone.

Dental pain that requires urgent treatment is sharp, stabbing or throbbing in its intensity, leaving the area around the tooth feeling bruised or extremely tender to touch, it may also react painfully to any pressure.

It is important to contact us for a same day appointment in this instance, as it may indicate an infection, which requires urgent treatment.

Lost filling or crown

Nothing lasts forever and our dentists in Marylebone are used to seeing patients who have lost fillings or crowns, almost on a daily basis.

It is important to note that a lost filling or crown may not be painful, so it is worth checking that all of your fillings and crowns are present and stable as part of your daily dental routine.

Sudden swelling

Swelling of the face, tongue, gum or inner cheek requires urgent medical attention, even if you are in no discomfort.

Though it is unlikely to have a pain free abscess, it is possible under a tooth that has had a root canal, so it is worth checking with a member of our dental team just to be sure. Other possibilities include an allergic reaction or periodontal disease, which need to be identified and treated as soon as possible.

Cracked or chipped tooth

If you are into contact sports or are prone to falling, you may experience a chipped or cracked tooth.

When this occurs, it is vital that you book a same day dental appointment and if possible, save any fragments of teeth in a container, soaking in milk.

A cracked or chipped tooth requires repair and delaying this can lead to the crack or chip deepening. It can also be a gateway for bacteria to attack the pulp of your tooth, which can cause a very unpleasant infection in the long term.

Unusual lumps

If you notice a lump anywhere in your mouth, do not wait until your next check-up.

An unusual lump in your mouth may be indicative of oral cancer, which is more likely if you smoke. Contact our dental team for an emergency appointment as soon as you notice any strange lumps or bumps.

At Plowman & Partners dental surgery, we know how important your smile is to you.

In the modern world, we are bombarded with images of the Hollywood elite with their perfectly straight, white smiles; if you are not blessed with a similar smile naturally, it can make you feel less confident.

Dentist in MaryleboneLuckily, due to an increased demand, many dental surgeries are now able to bring the glamour of Hollywood to you and can offer you many cosmetic options when it comes to your teeth.

At Plowman & Partners, our dentist in Marylebone is proud to be able to provide our patients with a range of different cosmetic options, to leave them with the gorgeous smile they deserve.

Our team of dentists in Marylebone have listed our most popular cosmetic procedures, to help you decide which treatment may be best suited to your individual needs.

Dental implants

Perfect for restorative dental work, if you have a few teeth or many teeth missing, implants are a suitable alternative to dentures.

Fitted to your jaw by our dentist in Marylebone, implants provide an immovable way to fill gaps in your smile, while also restoring functionality to your mouth.

Porcelain veneers

Do you need whiter teeth for an upcoming wedding? Do you have a minor gap in your smile?

Porcelain veneers offer a quick way to whiten your teeth and can be adapted to cover any minor gaps, cracks or chips in your smile. Similar to an acrylic nail, veneers are fitted over the front of your teeth, providing you with an instant boost to your smile in a timely manner.

White fillings

Once considered somewhat of an eyesore by many, at Plowman & Partners, we are able to offer our patients a combination of restorative and cosmetic treatment with our white, composite fillings.

Eliminating the appearance of the filling, our team will also shape the composite, to restore a more natural look to your teeth, regardless of the tooth’s position in your mouth.

Porcelain crowns

When you need a bit more than a filling and need a bit more restoration, our team are able to provide you with a porcelain crown, to restore your teeth and give a more natural look.

If you want something a bit more extravagant, our team are also happy to fit you with a gold crown.

Fitted bridges

Our team at Plowman and Partners provide a full range of bridgework, which may include the use of dental implants.

Alternatively, if you do not want to have dental implants fitted, we are able to offer you a fitted bridge, which secures a partial denture in place by anchoring the prosthesis onto neighbouring teeth. However, this will require these teeth to be prepared and fitted with crowns to ensure that the bridge stays firmly in place.

Whether you are looking for dental implants or just want your teeth whitened, Plowman and Partners can help!

You’re never too old to have a little touch-up work done, especially on your teeth. Thanks to improvements in modern dentistry over the years, we now have a multitude of options for treatment to help your smile last longer.

Dentist in MaryleboneIf you’re interested in buffing up those pearly whites, then here’s a few cosmetic treatments that our dentist in Marylebone can offer you.

Dental implants

First up on the list is our dental implantation procedure. This involves the fitting of a prosthetic tooth, either porcelain or ceramic, into the section of your gum line that needs improving. This can be done to fill in gaps or to replace cracked teeth and those that are damaged beyond repair.

We use a sterile Titanium screw to bond the tooth to your jawbone and, over time, the bone cavity should heal back over the inserted prosthetic to help create a sturdy natural looking replacement.

Crowns

Next on our list of cosmetic procedures, available from our dentist in Marylebone, is crowns. We use a prosthetic cap to entirely cover your tooth. Primarily we use it for covering damage, but it can also be used to strengthen or aesthetically improve the look of your teeth.

At Plowman and Partners Private Dentistry, our talented team will provide a range of natural looking crowns to give you a more natural looking smile.

Veneers

Similar to crowns, veneers are a prosthetic cap that we use to cover up cracks, chips, damage and staining that can build up on your teeth over time. First, we will normally remove a layer of enamel from your teeth and, inside this little divot, we will fit the cap into place with an adhesive, that is later cured and solidified to keep the new cover in place.

It’s a relatively non-invasive procedure, but there can be some mild discomfort during the enamel removal stage.

Whitening

If you want to get that Hollywood white smile, then you can’t go wrong with a whitening session from one of our team. We provide in practice sessions or kits to use at home if your schedule isn’t free for an appointment.

Invisible braces

Last on our list is our invisible braces. These are essentially a custom moulded see-through brace that places a small but gentle amount of pressure onto your teeth. Over time this will cause the crooked parts to realign themselves in a straighter position.

The process of being fitted for these braces is pretty high-tech, as we will use LEDs or lasers to map out the topography of your teeth. We will then use this to create a 3D image of your teeth that we can manipulate to show you how we will realign the specific area being worked on.

This is then used to create a mouthguard that you will have to wear for around 12 months, as your teeth start to straighten out.

These are just a few of the various cosmetic treatments we have available at our practice. Just ask one of our team on your next visit to see how we can help you improve that smile.
