Listening to your needs
Consultation & exam
During your 30-minute consultation appointment, the dentist will carry out an extensive examination of your teeth and gums. The focus will be on enhancing the appearance and health of your smile, but we'll always begin with an informal chat about your unique smile aspirations. Listening carefully to your needs, your dentist will take photos and identify the features you would like to improve.
At Higher Lane Dental Practice we always keep you involved in your own care. You'll have the opportunity to discuss all available options and prices fully before agreeing on a bespoke treatment plan. Following the consultation, we will send you a letter outlining everything that was covered and discussed. We all want to enjoy a smile that looks healthy, fresh and perfectly natural. And you’ll be surprised at what can be achieved within all budgets.

Maintain good oral health
At Higher Lane Dental Practice we understand that oral hygiene is vital not only for your dental health but your overall wellbeing too. To ensure your mouth, teeth and gums remain in great condition, we recommend you attend regular dental check-ups for examinations and hygiene treatments.
Our high quality hygiene treatments include cleaning, gum care, scaling and polishing. This forms a central part of our preventative approach.
Preventing jaw pain
Preventing jaw pain
Temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJD, is a group of painful conditions that affect the jaw joint and surrounding muscles and nerves. Although TMJ disorder is not life threatening, it can be detrimental to quality of life since the symptoms can become chronic and difficult to manage.
People with TMJ disorders may exhibit a variety of symptoms including:
- Pain in the chewing muscles and/or jaw joint soreness
- Radiating pain in the face, jaw or neck
- Jaw muscle pain or stiffness
- Aching pain in and around ears
- Difficulty chewing or discomfort while chewing
- Limited movement or locking jaw
- Painful jaw clicking, popping or grinding when opening or closing the mouth
- Headaches or migraines
- A change in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together
Preventing problems in the future
Routine & preventative care
Dental health examinations and prevention are core to the service provided at Higher Lane Dental Practice. We believe in preventing problems rather than simply treating them as they occur. This way, our patients benefit from improved dental health, reduced dental costs and a more positive dental experience that focuses on health, education and the fulfilment of any desires for smile improvements. Preventative dentistry helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.
