We are here to help you maintain their health. We like to see you at regular intervals (we'll advise the optimum level for your own dental health) so we can screen the whole mouth - including teeth, gums, bones, tissues inside the mouth etc, for any signs of early problems. This way, we can suggest any corrective or preventive measures to preserve the health of your teeth and gums. There are no dental restorations as strong or as good as your own teeth.

Our aim is to provide high quality care and treatment in a relaxed, confortable and safe environment. We are commited to continuing education and keeping abreast of advances in modern dentistry. Wallingford Dentists, Lawrence & Pinkerton provide a wide range of modern dental services, including preventative care plans that will help you avoid problems in the future, teeth whitening and dental implants. We have a friendly team here to make you feel comfortable and answer any questions you may have.
If you suffer from one or more of these symptoms we may be able to help. At Lawrence and Pinkerton we offer SCi (Sleep Clench inhibior) splints. This simple and clinically proven device has already helped more than 1.75 million patients worldwide, without side effects and without the use of drugs. The SCi is a small splint that fits just over your front teeth. They work by preventing tooth grinding and clenching. In preventing this unwanted muscle clenching we eliminate the tension that causes headaches, neck pain and migraines.
What are dental implants? An implant is a titanium screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone. The post will act like the 'normal' root of a tooth. What can they be used for? Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth either by fixing a crown or bridge to them. They can also be used for implant-retained dentures. If you find normal dentures difficult to wear, implant-retained dentures may be the answer. These are dentures that are stabilised by implants to stop the movement that you may experience with the 'traditional' type of dentures.
Teeth whitening is an increasingly popular way to whiten your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. At Lawrence & Pinkerton we offer Opalescence home whitening. The process is simple. You will need to come to the practice to have some impressions taken of your teeth. The impressions will then be sent to a laboratory who will make your whitening trays. Once these have been made you will come into the practice for a short visit and shown how to use the trays and the whitening gels. The whitening trays are usually worn with the gel every night for one to two weeks or until the desired whiteness is achieved.
