General & Family Dentistry

Dental health examinations and prevention are core to the service provided at Lawton Dental Care in Alsager. 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.

At Lawton Dental Care 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, professional mechanical plaque removal (scale and polish). This forms a central part of our preventative approach. To ensure regular routine care, consider joining one of our membership plans.

New patient welcoming

At your new patient consultation, we will take this opportunity to introduce you to our practice, team and it is the start of your journey to achieving your dental health. We pride ourselves in providing dental care to all our patients that meet our own high standards and gives you the peace of mind that we are looking after you. As part of this welcoming, our Alsager dentists will review your dental goals and discuss treatments to achieve these objectives.

A new patient welcoming includes the following:

  • A thorough clinical examination
  • X–rays for diagnosis
  • 3D digital scan of your teeth
  • Oral cancer screening

Have a question?

Painkillers in the form of paracetamol and ibuprofen can be taken (if your medical history allows so) to relieve the pain temporarily until you can get an appointment with your dentist scheduled. Give us a ring and we will get you in ASAP.

This depends on your dental disease risk. Your dentist will typically see you anything from 3months-1year. A dentist not only checks your teeth but will also carry out cancer screening.

The British Academy of Paediatric Dentistry recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Baby teeth typically begin growing at around 6 months of age.

There are three main ways to do this:

Clean your teeth twice a day – last thing at night and one other occasion, and clean in between them with floss or tepe brushes once a day.

Have a good diet – it’s the frequency of sugars that cause a problem not the amount – so make sure not to snack in between meals and only drink water between meals.

Fluoride – use a fluoride toothpaste contacting 1450ppm fluoride to help prevent decay.

Registered patients below the age of 18 (19 full-time education) do not pay for their dentistry but are funded by our limited NHS contract.

Once children reach adulthood, they will be seen independently, able to join a monthly plan or can seek adult NHS treatment at another practice.

Due to the very limited nature of our NHS funding, we may not always be able to take on new patients. You will have to fill in a registration form at your first visit to add you to our patient database. But that does not mean you have guaranteed access to an NHS dental appointment in the future.

Our adult patients are cared for under a private contract (we do not have any NHS funding for adults). Adult care can be funded on an independent basis, buying our time as it is needed or as part of our payment plan. Check out our practice plans & fees
