Things to consider when selecting your Dentist in Waterlooville

What is right for you and your family?


When first looking for an oral health care provider, the first go-to aspect of the search is the distance from your home or location of work, but alongside this needs to be how suitable the dental practice is for you and your family. Having one dental team for all of you has numerous benefits including reducing the attendance time for regular check-ups as you can have them done in one go as opposed to spread out over a variety of times and locations. For the younger members, having appointments together enables them to view your appointment first creating a sense of ease, essentially a monkey-see, monkey-do aspect to the process. Although some of these things may seem rather small things to consider, the actual choosing of a dental practice is extremely important and one that should not be overlooked.

Reducing and potentially eliminating fears towards the Dentist in Waterlooville


For children who have regularly attended the dental practice with their family from as young as 6 months old, the likelihood of them gaining a phobia over the visits is minimal as opposed to children who have not had this consistency. Studies have shown that adults with phobias of the dentist were often not regular attendees as children and their unease has, in part, stemmed from this. At Cowplain Dental Practice we want every single patient, no matter their age, to feel welcome, safe and content throughout each appointment which is why we encourage whole families to keep on top of the check-up appointments.


What are the benefits from regular check-ups?


Dental check-ups on a six-to-twelve-month basis are of extreme importance so as to monitor the efficiency of your daily oral hygiene processes alongside the creating an opportunity for any potential issues to be dealt with promptly. Adjustments can be advised and implemented within your home oral hygiene process and anything untoward can be reduced and in most cases eliminated with early interventions.


Now at Cowplain Dental Practice we understand that life is busy and therefore an appointment every six months may feel like an inconvenience, but whilst we do not expect you to have the appointment precisely at six months, we do encourage it to be as close to that mark as possible. After all, a short and sweet appointment is less time consuming than more severe treatments or procedures. If we can help you avoid the more extensive work then we will.
