Our Aim is to be your first choice for dental care.

Our staff have many years experience and will endeavour to make your visit relaxed and comfortable.
We understand that many of our patients have work commitments which may restrict their access to dental treatment. To help with this problem, we offer evening appointments by arrangement.
The practice and treatment rooms are air conditioned. Up to date facilities like intra-oral cameras and multi-media dental facilities enable you to make informed choices prior to treatment.
For the smooth running of our appointment system patients are asked to give as much notice as possible of any cancellation and we reserve the right to charge for missed appointments or those cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
We are always keen to hear your views so please feel free to contact the practice if you have any comments or suggestions.

From Our Website
Gallions Reach Dental Clinic was originally established in 1990 as a referral centre for the provision of surgical dental treatment for nervous patients. A major recent refurbishment included air conditioning and substantial investment in the latest dental technology. So Gallions today is a modern, superbly equipped, multi-surgery dental practice providing treatment to both local patients and those referred by their own dentists for more advanced work. We provide a full range of surgical and restorative treatments with more advanced procedures undertaken by specialists.
Cosmetic dentistry has advanced rapidly over the last decade, and is also now more accessible and affordable. Although people generally tend to think of it purely in terms of improving looks, these treatments can bring significant associated health benefits, too. So-called 'invisible orthodontics' enable us to offer advanced teeth-straightening techniques that will spare you having to wear unsightly metal braces, and can be the ideal solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. With invisible orthodontics you can wear either clear braces or ones that fit on the inside of your teeth, often for a much shorter treatment time.
We strongly recommend that you undergo scaling/cleaning with a hygienist at least twice a year. Appointments here are available on Mondays, and last around 25 minutes. You can also purchase dental care products recommended by the hygienist at the Gallions Reach Dental reception. If you have old silver (amalgam) fillings in your back teeth, or need a new one because of decay, white composite/resin fillings are an excellent option. They are very strong and, as they can be colour-matched to your own teeth, virtually invisible.
Gingivitis is the non-destructive inflammation of the gums. The gums become swollen, red and tender, with a tendency to bleed when you brush. If we catch it early, gingivitis can be reversed and no destruction to the supporting structures of the tooth will occur. However, if the early signs are ignored, it can escalate (often without warning) into the far more serious periodontitis. Periodontitis causes damage that is irreversible. It leads to the destruction of the structures supporting the teeth.
Dental implants are an excellent, long-lasting treatment for replacing missing or failing teeth, and securing removable dentures. They can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or even all of your teeth, they restore the joy of eating an unrestricted diet and, for many people, they lead to greatly increased social confidence. An implant which looks and functions like a real tooth is the complete answer to the problem of a missing or failing natural tooth. Up until now the only alternatives to filling the gap left by a missing tooth were a bridge or a denture, both of which can be uncomfortable and difficult to maintain.
