“My preventative plan has put my mind at ease and I’m confident that my teeth are in the best possible care” ~ Kevin
Prevention is better than cure, which is why our highly qualified team of dental hygienists develop the best possible Care Plan for each and every one of our patients.
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.
There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings. To maintain optimal oral health, we recommend visiting the dentist at regular intervals based on your oral health. Preventative care is designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white. Importantly, we believe children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age.
Regular dental check-ups and routine examinations by our qualified team of dentists and hygienist are essential to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. Brushing and flossing alone isn’t always enough and an expert is needed to spot any problems early, such as dental decay, gum disease or oral cancer. We’re here to ensure you’re given first class care and the service you need to guarantee a great smile for life.
Our qualified team of Hygiene Therapists and state of the art hygiene treatments will help ensure your mouth stays fresh and free from tooth decay and gum disease.
Through a combination of skill and care, plus your own oral hygiene efforts at home, we can help ensure your teeth and gums remain in tip-top condition. Instead of filling decayed teeth, we believe in investing in a bespoke oral care routine and keeping any problems at bay. This way all of our patients can maintain a healthy, happy mouth for life.
Pregnancy is an exciting time but are you aware of the implications it may have on your oral health? Here are some reasons why pregnant women should take extra care with their dentition:
The hormone progesterone can be raised up to 10 x higher than the normal level in the body during pregnancy, affecting it’s response to toxins and making it more susceptible to developing periodontal disease, also known as pregnancy gingivitis.
Some pregnant women also develop a growth on their gums known as a pregnancy granuloma: red nodules, usually found on the upper gums. While they are not dangerous, they can cause discomfort.
Other oral health problems may include dry mouth and tooth erosion as a result of constant exposure to acid from severe morning sickness.
If you’re pregnant we recommend that you come to the practice for a thorough check up so that we can help you maintain great oral health for the duration of your pregnancy and beyond.
Do you require a sports mouth guard? Our guards are custom-made rubber coverings worn over your teeth to protect them from damage in contact and ball-based sports. Once inserted they carefully cushion the teeth and gums and help avoid damage such as chipped or broken teeth.
We provide children’s dental mouth guards but these will need regular replacement to allow for growth.
Adults will also require a regular review of their dental mouth guards due to wear and tear.
Are you aware of the negative effects smoking has on your oral health? It can lead to serious medical conditions and even chronic diseases such as lung cancer. However, there’s another side effect of smoking that doesn’t get as much attention, and that’s the toll it takes on your mouth, gums and teeth. Smoking can lead to tooth staining, gum disease, tooth loss, and in more severe cases, mouth cancer.
Patients who smoke should have regular check-ups with a dentist who will be able to advise about all dental issues and detect any signs of developing disease. You may require orthodontic treatment or be advised to see the dental hygienist for preventative advice about diet, toothbrushing and treatment of gum problems.
We make sure your child’s dental journey is a positive one from the very get-go! Our expert team of dental professionals provide regular, fun and friendly checks-up to help maintain great oral health from an early age and prevent any unnecessary dental issues.
We’re a family friendly dental practice, here to help ensure your child maintains a healthy mouth and confident smile for the duration of their life. When you become our patient, we put you and your family on the right path and help avoid any of the unpleasantries associated with dental health, like tooth decay and gum disease.
To ensure healthy teeth and gums, we advise that you bring your child to visit us from the moment you spot signs of their first tooth. Regular checkups, brushing their teeth twice a day and a healthy diet are all part of maintaining excellent oral teeth, right from the very beginning.
Prevention is always better than cure, so together let’s put your children on the best possible path for their future dental health
The prospect of teeth extractions can be scary. At Tanyard & Golding our experienced dentists will only remove teeth if it is absolutely necessary. Teeth may need to be extracted for many reasons such as orthodontic care, tooth damage or where advanced gum disease and tooth decay is present. Should a tooth extraction be needed we will endeavour to make this as comfortable as possible for you. For the extremely nervous patients the treatment can be done under sedation.
A composite (tooth coloured filling) is a great option for many fillings or when repairing a small chip to a tooth. A tooth-coloured composite material is used which makes the filling largely unnoticeable. We will remove any decay and smooth the edges before the filling is placed. We aim to do this in one visit. We believe prevention is better than cure and will always focus on preventing decay, however, if you do require a filling then we recommend tooth-coloured fillings as a solution that is both aesthetic and functional.
When the inside of the tooth becomes damaged or infected, this can cause toothache and even lead to a dental abscess, which can be extremely painful. Root canal treatment will eliminate the cause of the pain by completely removing the diseased or damaged tissue from the tooth.
Those considering root canal treatment can often find the process nerve wracking, however, the treatment overall should feel no different to having an ordinary filling.
Chipped or fractured teeth, broken down fillings, or teeth that are malformed or discoloured are all conditions which can affect your smile. A crown is a natural looking porcelain cap that is used in order to help restore or hold together a tooth that has been chipped or damaged.
Multiple crowns are also used to hold a bridge in place. Their purpose is to restore each tooth to its normal shape and size, while both strengthening and improving its appearance. Having a crown fitted may require two or three dental visits.

Orthodontics is a specialist area of dentistry focused on the correction of uneven teeth, moving teeth and crowded mouths. In turn, this will help improve the function and appearance of teeth as well as look after the long-term health of teeth, gums and jaw joints.

A veneer is a clever way of disguising your dental imperfections, including discolouration and chipped or cracked teeth. Veneers provide a great long-term solution as they’re hard-wearing, long-lasting and go unnoticed.
A veneer is very thin porcelain sleeve that cleverly fits over the front teeth, fitting precisely to give you a natural look and feel. The procedure has a short-term treatment plan, with minimal invasiveness, leaving you looking and feeling more confident in no time!
Teeth whitening is a great way to help hide the everyday stains caused by tea, coffee, red wine and smoking as well as help enhance your smile, making you look and feel younger.
The treatment works by allowing a very small amount of whitening gel to come into contact with the teeth. This then reacts with the surface of the tooth, gently lightening stains and leaving you with a healthier looking smile.
The process is suitable for patients of all ages, but is most effective on patients who have healthy, unrestored teeth. The speed of whitening and colour change will depend entirely on the initial colour of the teeth.
If you’ve previously had crowns, veneers or fillings, these teeth will not respond to whitening. However, if this is the case, we can discuss other options with you to ensure you can still achieve a brighter, whiter smile.
Inlays and onlays are two types of restorations that your dentist can suggest if you have a cavity in your tooth that needs to be filled.
An inlay is a small filling that fits into the biting surface of a tooth.
An onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited to bigger cavities.
For many years, gold has been used to make inlays and onlays because it is a hard material and lasts for a long time. Nowadays, tooth-coloured porcelain is also used and gives the restored tooth a more natural look, which many patients prefer.
Cosmetic build ups are made from a tooth-coloured, putty-like resin, which is a durable plastic material. It is applied to the tooth and hardened with an ultraviolet or laser light, bonding the material to the tooth. Your dentist then trims, shapes, and polishes it. Bonding can repair decayed, chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth; it is also a good cosmetic alternative to, or replacement for, amalgam or silver fillings. Typically, dental bonding takes about 30 to 60 minutes.
If you’re looking for a permanent solution to replace missing teeth or to finally get your dental bridge fitting properly, we offer dental implants and implant restorations.
Depending on whether you are replacing one or a number teeth, we may recommend a crown, a bridge, or a set of dentures to attach to your implant post. We also carefully consider the size, shape, and color of your replacement teeth to ensure that the new implants compliment your natural teeth.
Our dentists will work with you to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants, and which type of replacement teeth is ideal for your smile.
Our dentists are qualified to offer endodontics – a specialisation of dentistry that saves teeth by removing the diseased, infected and painful nerve and soft tissue in the root canal system. By shaping, cleaning, rinsing and filling the root canals we are able to save teeth that have suffered extensive decay, resulting in infection and irreversible nerve (pulp) infection.
Did you know that snoring may be damaging to oral health?
Snoring is caused by the muscles in the roof of your mouth, tongue and throat relaxing enough to partially obstruct the airway. It is these soft tissues that vibrate when the air flows past, generating the disruptive snoring noise you hear. Saliva helps to wash dead skin cells off your tongue, cheeks and gums , but if it’s not washed away thoroughly, these cells breakdown and begin to smell.
A good oral health routine is essential to combat some of these effects. Additionally, it is something that we can discuss, review and explore ways to help ease your snoring.
The sound of snoring can lead to sleep deprivation for your partner and research has consistently found that exposure to noise above 40dB can have a negative effect on all areas of our well-being. If snoring has become a persistent problem, Tanyard & Golding offer anti-snoring devices that can help. You may also suffer from Temporomandbular Joint Disorder (TMD) – a problem affecting the ‘chewing’ muscles and joints between the lower jaw and the base of the skull.
Up to 25% of adults suffer from TMD at some stage in life – with symptoms ranging from face, jaw or neck pain, headaches and painful clicking in the jaw.
Jaw pain, clenching and grinding of teeth are common problems and can cause damage and a number of painful symptoms associated with the jaw, this can affect your overall quality of life.
Collectively, these symptoms are often referred to as Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD).
