Checkup in a nutshell

We need to have our mouths checked periodically to make sure everything is in good order

As a new patient and at every subsequent check up we will undertake a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, cheeks, tongue, jaw joint and jaw muscles, salivary glands and lymph nodes, and this includes a routine cancer check.

We have a multitude of diagnostic equipment, and use the highest quality x-ray equipment that ensures the most accurate diagnosis, and the lowest doses of radiation to you.

Checkup FAQs

Yes. It is not healthy for your gums to be bleeding, however the problem will probably be something we can deal with. It is best to come in to see one of our caring and thoughtful hygienists or our gum specialist to look into the matter for you.

Bad breath is commonly a consequence of decayed teeth or unhealthy gums or both. One of our team can take all the necessary checks to find out for you and let you know how to resolve the problem.

Usually every 6 months.

Generally yes, dental x-rays are very safe. Often, dental x-rays have the same radiation exposure as eating several bananas or getting on a flight to Spain. There is always a risk, but usually this is outweighed by the benefit - the dentist should discuss this benefit with you.

A dental cavity is usually a hole in the tooth caused by tooth decay, which in turn is caused by certain bacteria in your mouth. A dental cavity may or may not be visible and maybe hidden within the tooth. The dentist will check your teeth and let you know if you have any cavities. Most cavities will need to be fixed, with a filling or metal or ceramic material, after removal of the decayed tooth.

It depends on the circumstance. Usually at home tooth whitening is the most effective and efficient way to whiten your teeth. To do this one of our hygienists or dentists will take impressions of your teeth and supply you with the custom made home whitening kit a week or so later.

Not only is the home whitening the best way to whiten your teeth, but you can also top up the whitening and control the colour of your teeth as you wish over many years.

In some cases tooth whitening treatment is not appropriate and other methods are required, such as veneers.

You should always have a check up and hygienist appointment before whitening your teeth.

We recommend that a child go to the dentist from age 1 or around six months after their first tooth comes through. Primary teeth begin growing from six months of age.

Good question. If you have gum disease, you will need remedial treatment. After checking precisely which teeth the gum disease is effecting and to what degree, our periodontal specialist or one of our hygienists cleans your teeth below the gum line, usually after your mouth has been numbed, in the areas that have been identified as having gum disease. This is usually done over one, two or four appointments.

If you have gum disease, the first treatment is to have non-surgical periodontal treatment. The gums are then checked again, and if there is persistent gum disease, after discussion with our periodontist, you may have further treatment targeting the non-responsive persistent sites. The treatment, known as surgical periodontal therapy, is undertaken when your mouth is numbed - the gum is pulled back and the problematic area treated, and the gum is then stitched back in place.

Our preferred method of payment is bank transfer, and we accept most debit and credit cards, though not American Express.

Sadly not, we are a private practice only.

Yes there is, though it is on a first come first served basis, with priority given to those with mobility issues. We share two spaces with our neighbour and ask that you use the space considerately.

Generally speaking your treatment may be uncomfortable, but it should not be painful, and we will do our very best to make sure the whole experience is as pleasant as possible. If you are nervous, we do offer various forms of sedation and we are most happy to discuss your needs and options with you.

We are here to look after you, your teeth, gums and general oral health - all the team are very approachable and understanding. It's our job and we love doing it.

You can call 020 8348 9995, email info@pondsquaredental.co.uk, complete an enquiry form or book an appointment directly through our website.

A fee is usually charged if there is not enough notice given to cancel or rearrange an appointment or if an appointment is missed.

We follow all the regulations and advice and manufacturer requirements regarding cross infection, decontamination, hygiene and equipment maintenance. We take your safety and ours very seriously.
