Caring for the smiles of Craigentinny

At Craigentinny Dental Care in Edinburgh, we are proud to say that we have been providing the Edinburgh community with over 25 years of care and service.

Treatment at Craigentinny Dental Care only begins after lengthy consultations using a practitioner with whom patients feel fully comfortable, confident and share a good rapport.

Sedation Dentistry in Edinburgh

Clean and healthy

Dental hygienist treatments are particularly popular here at Craigentinny Dental Care. These are cosmetic dental procedures which have been specifically designed to target visible, superficial signs of age or staining on teeth – caused by either smoking, drinking coffee, tea or red wine, or general neglect. At Craigentinny Dental Care, we understand that a healthy smile is essential to a healthy mind, and that with poor dental hygiene, you can often be left with a severely detrimental feeling of self- confidence or worth. That is why we have a team of three highly renowned dental hygienists currently in practice – each chosen for their unique sets of skills and expertise in all things relating to dental hygiene. The process of a scale and polish is one dental hygiene treatment which is offered here at Craigentinny Dental Care, in which a patient’s teeth are power-blasted clean using specialised equipment which leaves them with an instantly brighter and cleaner feeling mouth. The effects of such a treatment are not only successful in their instantly visible effect on a patient’s smile, but also in their effectiveness on halting any further detrimental damage or deterioration of teeth and surrounding gums as a result. Our highly skilled hygienists also offer a wide array of tips and advice on how patients can achieve and maintain a high standard of oral hygiene, without numerous expensive trips to the dentist.

Sedation dentistry in Edinburgh

For patients who may suffer from anxiety or any other chronic fear that may be impeding their overall dental wellbeing, we offer intravenous sedation dentistry in Edinburgh at Craigentinny Dental Care which may help them tackle their problems at the root. The process of undertaking intravenous sedation dentistry in Edinburgh initially consists of patients filling out a short dental history form and answering a few basic medical questions – before they are administered with a mild sedative intravenously, which helps to calm them, so that the appropriate dental work can commence smoothly.

Unseen wonders

Another treatment on offer here at Craigentinny Dental Care is the implementation of discreet dental and orthodontic alignment treatments such as our ‘Six Month Smiles’ procedures. We understand that many young adults and teenagers are deterred from undertaking essential orthodontic alignment surgeries – such as typical, fused ‘train-track’ braces as they are clearly visible when worn, and can damage a patient’s social well being as a result. Treatment offered here combats this by offering a dental alignment process that utilises see-through plastic aligners which are far less visible from the outside. Treatment of this nature can have a massively beneficial impact on the self-esteem and confidence of patients.
