After years of feeling self conscious about my teeth, i finally decided to do something about it. Really glad i found Cathedral Dental. Friendly and professional service. Just completed my Invisalign treatment. Would highly recommend!
Just had my first appointment with Amy and had a great experience. She was welcoming and very thorough asking me if I was comfortable at every stage of the appointment. She also gave good advice on using the correct size of inter- dental brushes. Ably assisted by Sophie. Cathedral dental is lucky to have two excellent hygienists in Amy and Monica
From someone who has been scared of dentists for many years my experience with Amy and Lou exceeded my expectations. Amy spent time explaining things to me and made me feel comfortable and Lou also reassured me. Thank you so much for making the visit so much better than expected.
I have been a patient of Cathedral clinic for many years and I always recommend this clinic to friends and family. My new dentist João is very kind and gentle, the girls are always friendly and welcoming too. Thanks to all - very happy with the service.
I had been to many other practices to find about Ivisalign, and did not have good experiences. I came to this dentist and was treated more like a friend than a customer by the lovely ladies which made me feel relaxed. There was no pressure to buy anything and the treatment options were explained in lots of details, I will be going ahead and excited to see my new smile :DD Really really lovely ladies! Recommend! xx
Just completed the implant process with Ricardo at # Cathedral Dentist 🦷- it was actually very enjoyable and I have 2 perfect teeth back again. They are very comfortable and feel like my own. Highly recommend and well worth investment. Thank you 😊
Never had trouble booking appointments, everyone always very helpful and friendly, been coming for years. Service is top quality and I never come away feeling unhappy with the treatment. Would recommend.
I chipped my front tooth just over 12 years ago and this is the 4th time I've had to have it replaced (1st time at Cathedral). Ricardo did a wonderful job, very meticulous, took great pride in getting it to look right. He also got to the bottom of why I kept wearing it away / off - through grinding in my sleep, so a sleep guard has also been sorted. Would highly recommend
As usual excellent service & care from my dentist, Indy Singh & his colleagues. Unbelievably I contacted the practice on Friday as I had a problem & was able to be seen two days later.Reassured by Indy that all was well & that no treatment was required. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Cathedral Dental Practice!
Cathedral Dental are amazing! Dentists that really know what they’re doing and can guide you in the right direction.

I couldn’t recommend Cathedral Dental enough. I’m mid way through my Invisalign treatment, and I’m so pleased with the result already, but more importantly the service! The team are so welcoming, and make me feel completely at ease. Thank you!
At Cathedral Dental, our kind and caring team will always do everything we can to avoid a tooth extraction, but in some cases, it is the preferred course of action.
Why might I need a tooth extraction?
There are a variety of reasons as to why we might recommend a tooth extraction, the first of which is a tooth – or teeth – that has been damaged or decayed beyond repair. Other reasons include impacted or infected wisdom teeth, an overcrowded mouth, or baby teeth that have yet to fall out by the time adult teeth begin to erupt.
What happens during a tooth extraction?
There are two types of tooth extraction, including ‘simple’ and ‘surgical’.
A simple tooth extraction is the more commonly performed treatment, and is the course of action taken when the tooth being removed is clearly visible above the gum line. During this type of treatment, we’ll first numb the area being treated, before carefully removing the tooth with forceps.
A surgical extraction is needed when the tooth in question isn’t visible above the gum line. This may be due to having been broken in the course of an injury, or because it is impacted – i.e. partially or completely buried below the gum. During this treatment, local anaesthetic will be administered, and an incision will be made in the gums to help us remove the tooth. We will probably then suture the area, to help it in its healing.
What happens after?
We’ll let you know exactly how you should care for yourself after receiving a tooth extraction, depending on whether you have received a simple or surgical extraction. In all cases, however, we normally advise avoiding hot food and beverages until the anaesthetic has worn off, as well as not rinsing your mouth for 24 hours after. Once the anaesthetic has worn off, you’ll likely feel some pain at the area which is completely normal. You should be able to take over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to help with this.
