Routine Dental Examinations and dental Hygienist visits

With regular and routine dental examinations and Dental Hygienist visits and by looking after your oral health on a daily basis, you can help to avoid the traditional pattern of fillings and tooth loss.

  • Preserve and look after your smile
  • Improve your oral health and keep your teeth for life
  • Detect dental problems before they worsen

“Teeth for Life” is the aim of modern preventive dentistry. The best way to preserve your smile is to keep it healthy. These days when teeth are lost, over 90% of the time it is due to decay and gum disease. At Karma Dental Care, Fulham, we believe it is much better to prevent dental problems than to try and treat them, which is why we allow plenty of time during every routine check-up and hygiene treatment for thorough investigation, maintenance care and preventive dental advice. Achieving a smile to be proud of is easier than you think with the right care and attention. With preventive dentistry at Karma Dental Care, Fulham, you too can avoid the traditional pattern of fillings and extractions and achieve happy, healthy teeth and gums.

What dental care help is available for children?

Applying fluoride gels and solutions to help prevent decay and having their teeth polished, Children can benefit from seeing our Hygienist. The permanent back teeth can also benefit from having the biting surfaces sealed. This is done by applying a special plastic coating to the biting surface soon after they come through. Your dental hygiene is important to us and with our dedicated dental hygienists, Robiha or Radhia, your teeth and oral health is in good hands. Your dentist will advise should you need to see our dental hygienist, but should you feel you would like to book an appointment with Robiha or Radiha, please just ask your Karma Dental Care dentist at your next visit.

What is a dental hygienist?
Dental hygienists are specially trained to work with the dentist in giving care to patients. They play an important role in dental health care and are mainly concerned with gum health, showing people correct home care and applying preventive materials to the teeth and gums.
What is the main role of your dental hygienist?
Our hygienist’s main role is to professionally clean patient’s teeth, also known as scaling and polishing. However, perhaps the hygienist’s most important role is is to demonstrate the best way to keep teeth free of plaque. Hygienists also give advice on diet and preventing dental decay. Your hygienist will work with your dentist to provide care tailored to your needs.
Why is it important to see your dental hygienist?
Regular professional cleaning combined with looking after your teeth and gums well at home will help keep your oral health in check, which means a fresh breath and healthy smile.
Will cleaning and polishing my teeth hurt?
The care taken by our hygienists should ensure the scaling and polishing of your teeth will be pain free, but if you do experience any discomfort our hygienist Vicky can use anesthetic creams or solutions to help.
Can our dental hygienist help prevent dental disease?
Yes they can. By carefully removing the deposits that build up on the teeth (tartar) and by advising you how to prevent it reforming, a visit to the hygienist will go a long way to slowing the progress and preventing gum disease.
Why doesn't the dentist do my dental hygiene treatment?
A dental hygienist has been specially trained to provide this treatment and will have the time to ensure your teeth are properly cleaned.

“The team at Karma Dental Care Wandsworth Bridge Road is amazing. They are kind and caring (and funny), it’s more like visiting with friends than going to the dentist. When Lyndsay says she’ll get back to you, she does and promptly and she always goes out of her way to accommodate patients’ needs. Karnan and Dan are very gentle and excellent in their respective fields of dentistry. It was a pleasure to be a patient at the surgery and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”

Sue D

 

“I cant recommend Karma Dental highly enough. the quality of care and attention is exceptional. Karnan is an excellent dentist, He is patient and thoughtful and listened to any specific requests or concerns I have had. Lyndsay goes out of her way to provide first class care. I would recommend Karma to nervous patients and anyone looking to upgrade their existing dental care! “

 Felicia A

“Karma Dental Care have always provided me with a first class service. The staff are incredibly welcoming and make you feel at ease the moment you walk in the door. My dentist Karnan has a very professional approach to his work and has never disappointed. He is clear about the procedure he’s about to partake and the finish is always of the utmost quality. I would highly recommend him as a dentist and Karma Dental Care as a practice. Since I arrived in London I have never looked elsewhere, even though I don’t live in the Fulham area anymore, I still trek across London to use them!”

 Hugh M

“Excellent Dentist. I have a fear of dentists and travel from Birmingham to London to see Karnan (principal dentist). I have done this for the past three years and will never change.  Lyn (receptionist and dental nurse) is also fantastic.”

 Mellisa W

“Karma Dental Care is aptly named, as the quiet and luxuriously furnished waiting room will create a feeling of calm in even the most nervous of patients, who will be further soothed by the friendly manner of the dentists and staff. Like most people, I’ve been through my share of dentists, but have never been to a surgery with such a welcoming atmosphere, nor had work of such high quality done for such reasonable prices.”

Henry J

 

“I don’t go to the dentist very often as I think I have pretty good teeth! This practice was recommended by a friend… it was relaxed and friendly and my check up was very thorough, felt i got good value for money. Since then had my teeth whitened, very happy with the results, teeth are still white! would recommend Karma, especially if you don’t like going to the dentist.”

 Suruchi S

“Been to this dentist for my regular checkups and some filling work due to my bad teeth. Top class service comes highly recommended.”

James B

 

“Karnan and his staff do an extremely good job; Professional, smart, great results, cost-effective, and genuinely care about patients. I felt that this case justified my taking time to let people know that there was a very good dentist available in the vicinity of Fulham. If you’re a rugby player that has been literally kicked in the teeth one too many times, or if you’re suffering with a mild tooth ache, Karnan’s pleasant demeanor and sense of humor will ease your pain.”
