Dental Practice Treatments
Lyndhurst is proud to offer a range of dental treatments From our specialised team
We routinely carry out cosmetic procedures.
Using the latest techniques and materials, tooth coloured fillings, porcelain veneers, crowns, and bridges are placed to improve our patients’ smiles.
Speciality Periodontal (Gum) Care
At Lyndhurst we prioritise the oral health of our patients before everything.
We therefore understand that the foundations of the teeth are the most important. It is these foundations, in particular the bone which supports your teeth, which periodontal (gum) disease attacks and destroys.
We have therefore had a very strong emphasis for many years on the assessment, prevention and treatment of periodontal disease.
Our team of hygienists provide routine maintenance care. For the vast majority of patients regular hygiene appointments help them keep their teeth and gums healthy, their breath fresh, and help prevent the need for advanced treatment.
Patients whose periodontal condition has deteriorated beyond a certain level require advanced assessment and treatment, and here at Lyndhurst we are ideally placed to handle such situations. Scott Wetton is an integral member of our team (see profile below), receiving referrals from many general practitioners across the South West. He also welcomes patients who wish to self-refer if they have particular concerns about their periodontal health.
BDS MFDS RCS (Eng) MFDS RCS (Edin) Dip Impl Dent (Eastman) Special interest in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry
Scott has been treating patients with periodontal (gum) disease on referral with great success since 2005.
Scott qualified from Bristol University and has passed further examinations to obtain memberships to the Royal College of Surgeons England and the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh, and a diploma in Dental Implantology with distinction from the world renowned Eastman Dental Institute.
He currently works as a Speciality Dentist in Restorative Dentistry at Bristol Dental Hospital and previously worked as a full time lecturer in Restorative Dentistry with an interest in periodontology (gum disease), dental erosion and dentine hypersensitivity. He also lectures nationally to dentists, hygienists and therapists.
Scott undertakes all forms of periodontal assessment and treatment including surgical and non-surgical therapy as well as regenerative treatments and correction of gingival height discrepancies.
Scott also carries out facial rejuvenation procedures – the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles using non-surgical techniques and restylane.
Endodontics - Root Canal Therapy
This is routinely carried out at Lyndhurst to treat abscessed teeth.
Mark Wood who has a special interest in endodontics (and is a member of the British Endodontics Society) both accept referrals from other dental practitioners for the more challenging cases.
Dental implants are an excellent way of replacing missing teeth without damaging or putting loads on remaining adjacent teeth.
We offer a high quality, complete dental implant service here at Lyndhurst.
Scott Wetton assesses patients for their suitability for implants, places the implants and then the superstructure (the part you bite on!), whether this is fixed (crown or bridge) or removable (denture).
Implants in place
After Implant crowns are fitted
Several other treatments are available in the Lyndhurst Upper Rooms.
