  1. ABC?

    April 24, 2018

    Hi everyone.

    For a change I thought I would do a written blog this week. It has been ages since I have done one so please bear with me as I may be a bit rusty, but I will do my best. Fingers crossed that you guys like it and find it informative.

    So… there is this new fashion in dentistry called ABC. You may or may not have heard about it, so I thought I would write a short blog explaining what it is.

    There are lots of different ways to improve your smile. In the past we used to use veneers a lot. Veneers are porcelain facings which are stuck onto the front of your teeth (Rylan and Stacey Solomon have veneers on their teeth). Veneers look good, but they aren’t great for your long term dental health as they involve drilling down your teeth. Veneers tend to only last around 10 to 12 years after which point they often have to be redone.

    ABC is a different way of improving your smile. It is much more healthy when compared to veneers as it involves no drilling and it is very long lasting. So, what is it?

    A – This stands for Aligning. The first part of treatment is to straighten and align your teeth. If your teeth are crooked or crowded, we can use Invisalign to straighten them. Invisalign is an amazing tooth straightening treatment which works using clear aligners. There are no ugly painful train tracks braces involved at all. When you are wearing the Invisalign nobody will know you have a brace and you can also take them out when you are eating so it is also very lifestyle friendly. We do a lot of Invisalign at Cathedral Dental and it is an amazing treatment and our patients love it.

    B – This stands for Bleaching. The second part of treatment is to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening is a fantastic non-invasive way to improve your smile. Your teeth whiten and brighten and it will leave your teeth looking amazing.

    C – This stands for Composite. The third part of treatment is to use white filling material (composite) to build up some of your teeth. We can recontour the front teeth and build them up to make all the edges even and make everything tidy and symmetrical. There is often very little drilling involved and this fine detailing will enhance the treatment result and make your smile look amazing.

    So that is ABC (Aligning, Bleaching and Composite). Eventhough it has only become fashionable recently, I have been using the ABC philosophy for many years. I love it because it is a much healthy way to improve smiles and as long as you wear your Invisalign retainers it can last a lifetime.

    If you are interested in finding out more then just give us a call or send us an email us at [email protected] and you can come in to see me for a free consultation.

    In other news I am off to the Invisalign MiSmile conference later this week. Keep and eye out on the practice Instagram page (cathedraldental) and also my page (inderjit.dentist) for loads of photos of the day and Charity Ball afterwards. It will be a great day and I am looking forward to learning lots of cool new stuff to help make our treatments even better.

    Well that’s it for now.

    Have a great week.

  2. Dentistry 17 “Stars of Dentistry” Course

    July 5, 2017

    So……. Last Friday I was in London on the Dentistry 17 course. Dentistry 17 is one of the UK’s premier dental conferences.

    It was an early start (I had to catch the train at 5:49am) and despite getting lost I still managed to make it to Hammersmith on time.
    Some of the world’s leading dental experts were lecturing and presenting and I learnt all about the new exciting advancements in dentistry. There were talks on the latest dental porcelains, white filling materials, cosmetic dentistry and gum treatments.

    There was also a large exhibition hall with lots of dental companies showing new equipment and materials. This was very useful as I found lots of new stuff to put in the new surgeries which will be installed in August.
    It was a crazy busy day but the course was great. I learnt loads and I can’t wait to implement it all into practice.
    So why am I always going on courses? Well, one of the Cathedral Dental Core Values is to Pursue Growth and Learning. This means we encourage all the team to stretch themselves to continue to grow and learn. We do this by attending courses and seminars and continued training.

    This means when you come to Cathedral Dental you can be confident you are getting the most up-to-date treatments and all the cutting-edge techniques. We don’t do old fashioned dentistry!
    My next course is on Saturday and I will tell you guys all about it in my next blog.

  6. Valentine’s Day, Root canal Treatment and No Sugar.

    valentines

    So…….. I thought I would do a written blog as it has been a while since we have done one. Also you guys are probably tired of seeing my ugly face on camera. Saying that my skin is looking spectacular at the moment thanks to the ZO Radical Night Repair I am using. It really is amazing stuff so why don’t you guys book in a consultation with Danah to find out more.

    What else has been happening this week…

    • As you can see from the photos we have finished decorating for Valentines day. We are all feeling the love and the whole practice is looking very romantic. If you are passing by then feel free to pop in and have a look around. You can even have some Valentine chocolates or sweets.

    • I have also been particular chipper this week as my beloved Watford FC beat Arsenal on Tuesday. I am very happy indeed. You get very few happy moments being a Watford fan so I am enjoying this rare occurrence as much as possible.

    • Anil is now accepting root canal treatment referrals at the practice. So, if you are a dentist and want to take advantage of this then please feel free to contact us. You can even refer online via our website.

    • In my bid to be healthy I have decided to have a sugar free February. So, no cakes, biscuits, sweets or chocolate for me at all. It has been okay so far and I haven’t cracked as yet. I will keep you guys posted on my progress. The rest of the team are also starting a new health regime (well some of them are). The staff room is full of packets of flax seed, rye bread and fruit. I am not sure how long this will last but I am very impressed with their efforts so far.

    Have a good week and keep a watch out for our Surgery Insider Valentine Vlog next week. It will be epic.
