Healthy natural tooth preservation, whenever possible, is our clinical priority here at Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, alongside the preservation of healthy gums, strong jaws and so the restoration of good oral health. A regular schedule of both dentist and dental hygiene appointments complemented by a commitment to a good and daily oral hygiene regime at home is your best defence against the onset of both tooth decay, potential tooth loss and gum disease.
Should you need a dental treatment designed to save your teeth where possible, rest assured that we have a selection of options available for you to consider, as deemed appropriate and as recommended by your dentist. If you are experiencing severe toothache caused by inflammation or damage to the roots of your teeth, then you may need virtually pain-free root canal treatment. Similarly, if you find when you are caring for your teeth every morning and evening that you may have developed swollen or bleeding gums then a periodontitis treatment may be necessary. To address smaller tooth cavities, we can offer fillings and for larger ones inlays or partial crowns are an effective treatment to consider. If multiple, larger tooth cavities are present, rest assured that dental crowns are a well-established procedure available to you from our experienced dental specialist team.
Sometimes more complex issues arise which need a more significant dental intervention such as the removal or wisdom teeth or cysts so we are delighted to be able to offer oral surgery from our in-house operating theatre to swiftly and expertly to resolve these conditions on these occasions. Our dental hygiene service is performed by our dedicated team of dental hygienists whose professional teeth cleaning can conserve the level of good oral health you may already have, prevent any tooth decay or gum disease occurring or reoccurring and advise you on the best level of dental care and optimum nutritional and behaviour habits you may wish to adopt post appointment to conserve the quality of your now transformed smile and restored gums, teeth and jaws.
Please view below an outline of the current dental treatment options we are proud to offer when it is clinically viable to pursue saving teeth as our first and most desired priority, here in clinic:
Root Canal Treatment
With most of our dental patients needing just one visit to the dentist for this treatment, we conduct our restoration process for this condition using fine handcraft working in tandem enhanced by the use of state-of-the-art 3D X-ray technology and the powerful magnification of our in-house optical systems so we can act with guided precision at every step of the technique.Read more
Professional teeth cleaning is a service exclusively undertaken by our dental hygiene team. By meticulous cleansing of the mouth of plaque in even the hardest to reach areas with Air Flow technology; polishing to remove tooth discolouration, where possible, and smoothing the teeth at the close of the procedure to offer an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable surface, your teeth and our dental hygienists expertise have the chance to truly shine.Read more
You may need to consider a filling if you have experienced significant tooth decay causing both toothache and the creation of small dental cavities impacting on the quality of your oral health. To avoid the need for potential root canal treatment, tooth decay is best treated promptly to save the nerve and resolve both the pain and the inflammation. We use composite fillings for small cavities which enable us to save as much of the healthy tooth substance as we can.Read more
Inlays and Partial Crowns
If you are facing larger dental cavities or experiencing significant tooth decay, inlays and partial crowns may be a suitable dental treatment for your consideration, designed to replace the lost tooth substance which can no longer be saved. We choose to use all-ceramic inlays and partial crowns/onlays due to their high levels of biocompatibility and colour adjustability material properties generating perfect aesthetic results.Read more
Our dental crowns, crafted by our master dental technicians within our own dental laboratory offer a perfect match to the colour, texture, shape and form of your own natural teeth. If you have cracked or extensively damaged teeth then rest assured that the dental crowns, we can offer can indeed provide the restoration to your smile that you are looking for.Read more
Periodontitis (gum) disease
Periodontitis is a disease which develops in stages over time so depending on the severity of the condition as presented (and where appropriate to do so), we can offer an extensive periodontal disease treatment plan to prioritise the restoration of your oral health in a timely and effective way.Read more
If you need a wisdom tooth extraction, a cyst removed, bone surgery or find that you need to receive a complex oral rehabilitation programme of treatments and procedures, then we can help. Our operating theatre is staffed by our highly qualified, skilled and experienced dentists and surgeons who work with our anaesthetist team and our dental nurses to deliver the highest standards in clinical hygiene, surgical care and recovery protocols.Read more
Bruxism (teeth grinding) treatment
What happens when you grind your teeth? Affected people usually unconsciously rub their teeth against each other, causing long-term damage to the dental substance. They often do it in their sleep, when the consciousness is completely switched off or with strong mental and emotional tension. When the upper and lower jaws…Read more
I would definitely recommend Dr Mehl for root canal treatment! I got an emergency treatment the same day and the doctor took care of my pain. I loved this place, very friendly staff & professional team.
I woke up last week with a severe toothache and went to see Dr Mehl. During the examination, it turned out that my pulp was inflamed and I could not avoid a root canal treatment. Until now, I did not always hear the best experiences from root canal treatments, but I hardly noticed anything with Dr Mehl. He was very careful and concentrated in his work, so he didn’t make any mistakes. I am amazed!
