Dental services in Norfolk including hygienist, root canal, fillings and dental emergencies

When people ask for recommendations for a dentist, I’m always pointing them in the direction of Riverside dental! I hadn’t been to a dentist for years before joining at riverside due to bad experiences in the past etc. The whole team are brilliant and friendly, I’ve seen Bim for teeth whitening and for fixing a small chip in my front tooth. He talked me through the whole process and was very informative. It’s also the first time I’ve ever seen a hygienist, also highly rate them too. I’m so happy that I joined Riverside!

check ups

Patients of all ages should attend regular check-up appointments with their dentist, even if they don’t believe that there are any issues with their teeth. Dental problems don’t always cause obvious symptoms right away, and by visiting your dentist regularly, they can closely monitor the health and condition of your teeth and mouth. This enables any developing issues to be detected early, often before they cause symptoms and require expensive or invasive treatment. 



Cavities are one of the most common problems to affect our teeth. They occur when we fail to brush and floss our teeth properly and decay is allowed to erode the outer layers of the teeth, causing a hole to develop. Eventually, cavities can become very painful, and the tooth can even become infected if treatment isn’t provided. Fillings are the first line of treatment for dental cavities and are regularly performed here at Riverside Dental practice Norwich. 



Dental emergencies can occur at any time and patients often find themselves needing urgent care outside of their dentist’s usual office hours. A dental emergency can encompass anything from severe toothache, a broken restoration to a knocked out tooth. Fortunately, we operate an emergency dental service which means that our patients can receive the exemplary quality dental care that they need when they need it most.

Hygienists are dedicated to preventative dental care, including keeping gum disease at bay. They achieve this by helping you to keep your teeth and mouth as clean and healthy as possible. They also help to educate patients on the best techniques for maintaining exceptional oral health. Our two dental hygienists are specially trained to work with our general dentistry team to deliver the very highest levels of patient care.


Root Canal

If you have an infection in the root of your tooth, you will need root canal treatment. This important procedure doesn’t have the best reputation, but when it is performed with care and precision, it’s no more invasive or traumatic than any other dental treatment. It is also the only way of saving an infected tooth from falling out or extraction. Our experienced endodontist will do everything possible to help you retain your natural teeth and smile.
