What is Air abrasion? 
Air abrasion therapy is a hygiene treatment that removes persistent stains and biofilm from your tooth surfaces without causing any damage.

This is done using a combination of water, compressed air and fine powder particles. These three components are combined in a high-powered jet which gently remove stains from your teeth including hard to reach areas as well as biofilm from above and below the gum line.

Dental plaque is a biofilm of harmful bacteria that grows on surfaces within the mouth.

Easing Dental Fear In Adults

Easing Dental Fear In Adults

Dental phobia 

Dental phobia unfortunately can cause people to live with toothache, infections, bleeding gums and more. Many people are so embarrassed and anxious about the appearance of their teeth, that they go several years without smiling. Only when tooth pain/ appearance becomes unbearable do they realise that a trip to the dentist is unavoidable.

There are structured methods in place to help you get through your dental appointment with minimal discomfort, both physically and emotionally.

At Hewett’s we take this very seriously and want to make your journey when joining us as streamlined as possible.

Here are the practical steps we encourage you to take, to make your visits more manageable:

1. Talk to us! As with any phobia, the most important step to overcoming your fear is to identify the source of the problem. It may have been a bad experience at the school dentist, an uncomfortable injection, or even a horror story that you heard elsewhere. Whatever the reason, the most important step is to identify this. At Hewett’s, we encourage you to talk to us about your fears and feelings. All new patients are invited to meet with our patient care coordinators, who will have a relaxed discussion with you in a comfortable meeting room. Our patient coordinators are available to support you through each of your appointments.

2. Headphones: Plenty of patients report that their biggest trigger is the sound of the dental drill. Many people choose to bring in some music and their headphones, which they listen to throughout their treatment. This is a very easy and effective method to reduce your anxiety, and get you through your dental appointment. Don’t forget: We also have televisions above the dental chair so you can relax whilst your treatment takes place.

3. Take yourself away In our state-of-the-art surgeries, Hewett’s have TV’s in the ceiling to keep you entertained throughout your appointment. We have a range of DVD’s in surgery, but if there is a particular DVD you would like to watch, bring it along and we will happily play it for you.

4. Sedation– Sedation is a very popular treatment option at Hewett’s Dental. For patients who are simply unable to cope with treatment, or may be struggling with the idea of something such as an extraction, sedation can be a brilliant option. Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax in the dental chair. Intravenous (IV) sedation is available at Hewett’s. It is a very accurate and controlled method of sedation, which allows us to continually adjust the level of sedation medication being used, ensuring you stay calm and relaxed throughout your appointment.

5. Trust us, we will do the hard work. All you need to focus on is getting yourself through the door. This is the hardest step. Once you have done that, we will take everything from there.  We pride ourselves on taking every step we can to ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible. At Hewett’s, we believe in bringing kindness and dentistry together. No appointment is rushed, and patients are encouraged to relax and feel a part of the family from the moment they step through the door. We are proud to have helped many of our patients overcome a life-long dental phobia, and we hope to help many more people on that journey. Don’t let your anxiety be a barrier to a happier, healthier smile – let us help you today.

Digital Dentistry

The future of dental treatment is here.

We are proud and excited to offer all our patients lab quality dental appliances and crowns made here in house.

This means we are able to fit crowns, veneers, onlays, inlays and bridges in one visit, meaning less anaesthetic as we only need to have one appointment, no waiting for the lab to return the work to us and therefore saving you time.

Our Dentists took part in a whole weekend learning workshop In January to improve their skills using this new technology. They can’t wait to share their new found clinical knowledge and skills with you their patients.

Composite bonding

Composite edge bonding and composite veneers What’s the difference?

 

A question that has been asked more frequently. At Hewett’s we like to make sure our patients and the public are up to date and fuelled with information for their treatment journey.

Over the last two years people are more aware that a ‘white filling’ is indeed composite filling material.

What is composite edge bonding? 

Composite edge bonding is an excellent and modern way to either restore teeth or contour a tooth’s shape. It can be used in a cosmetic way. It is sculpted on to edges of teeth to improve the shape and refine teeth to make them appear natural. It is usually used after Invisalign to complete treatment.

What colour can I get, will it match my natural tooth? 

The colour composition is checked in great articulate detail by the dentist and patient to ensure they have chosen the best match colour for each individual. 

Can I whiten my teeth after composite bonding? 

If whitening your teeth is something your are considering, it would be advised that you consider doing this before composite bonding. Composite is a resin material and won’t lift when whitening. Its always best to achieve your desired colour, then when you are happy you can continue to have your composite bonding completed.

Composite Veneers

What are composite Veneers? 

Composite veneers are used when the resin is sculpted onto the the whole surface of the front of a tooth.

I don’t like the shape of my teeth, I don’t think I need braces, what else can I do?

Composite veneers can be used when you have abnormal tooth structure. The resin can be used to create more volume, close gaps and give an illusion of straighter teeth.

 

 

In any case, at Hewett’s we would recommend consulting your dentist. If you have any questions or would like to book a consultation please follow the link below

Plan with Hewett’s Dental

Plan with Hewett’s Dental

 

The beginning of 2021 saw uplift in enquiries for dental membership plans.

During the end of the 1st national Lockdown, we saw more people wanting to care for their teeth. We had more time than ever to think and more time to take care of our health.

Dental treatment can’t always be planned for and can more often than not make an unexpected appearance. There’s nothing wrong with it happening, we are here to help and it can happen to anyone! Eating healthy, brushing regularly, it still happens and you can’t blame yourself.

What can be done is maintaining and planning. Routine dental appointments can help maintain your gums and teeth, just like taking your car for annual MOT.

Smile care membership plan at Hewett’s allows you to spread the cost of routine maintenance visits through the year at low and affordable prices, giving you 5-10%* off treatments required.
The monthly amount is £13.85 with a £10 joining fee for new members.

What can you expect from the plan?
o Two examination appointments with your chosen dentist per year
o Two cleans with your dentist per year
o Unlimited X-rays, this can be routine or to help diagnose treatment
o 5-10% off treatment plans excluding referrals and  some cosmetic work.

Hygiene therapy plan
What can you expect from the hygiene therapy plan?
o All of the standard plan above
o Two Supportive periodontal therapy appointments with the hygienist per year (usually pay as you go £124.90 per session)
o 50% off periodontal treatment.

The hygiene plan will be recommended to you by your hygienist.

New dental services available at Hewett’s

New Dental services at Hewett’s Dental.

At Hewett’s we strive to provide the best possible dental care to new and existing patients. We are committed to investing in the most up to date equipment, giving the best possible treatment and experience for patients and our referring dentists. With easy access from Huddersfield, Halifax and Bradford, join us and start your journey to a new smile.

Hewett’s have 8 surgeries fully equipped for all dental needs. We create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door.

We have advanced to same day dental crowns. This gives you the option to have your dental treatment completed within 1 day, reducing your visits to the clinic. This works amazingly well if you or someone you know unfortunately loses a crown or breaks a tooth, especially a front one. Provided the appointments have been booked we can fix this for you.

Crowns are made uniquely to you. A 3D scan of your teeth is produced by the dentist in your first appointment, no moulds required! After the scan the dentist uses specialist software to design, mill and Furness your crown using substantial materials to ensure your crown has a long lasting life.

This is all provided using The CEREC milling unit. The CEREC software is optimally synchronized with one another. Grinding and milling the restoration design is extremely precise, giving the restorations smooth surfaces. Even very fine fissures are very precisely prepared and the edges are very even.

We are now able to make your process even more straight forward with the in house CBCT unit. Some dental treatments including dental implants and orthodontic treatment such as; Invisalign may require you to have a larger type of X-ray done, this is known as a CBCT/OPT. Usually patients would need to visit the hospital and return the image to us. We made the decision to invest in a unit at the practice. This meant we could relieve the NHS in some way of outpatients.

We are now able to accept referrals from local Private and NHS practices in Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford, Leeds and surrounding areas for CBCT/OPG scans and specialist treatments.

With an in house OPG/CBCT machine we will no longer need to refer patients to hospitals for these images, so this enables the process to be more streamlined for patients and referring dentists.

Referrals made to us may include any of the following:

Dental Implants

Oral Surgery

Endodontics

Orthodontics
