We began our phased return to dentistry on 8th June and are now able to offer routine appointments.
Although we have returned to some normality, the reality of working post lockdown is very different for us all. There are new regulations that we must adhere to as we continue to work through the CV-19 pandemic in order to keep our patients and our staff safe and these include a period of 'fallow time' after some appointments. This means that after some treatments, like fillings, the rooms have to be left vacant for one hour between patients to allow for decontamination purposes.
As you can imagine, this has an effect on the number of patients we can now see during our working week and there may be a wait for these appointments.
Although our opening hours have returned to normal our dentists and hygienists are not working the same hours as pre-lockdown and we may not be able to book dental health examinations and hygiene visits together.

Missing teeth raise a number of common concerns. Not only do they affect your smile and self-confidence, they can also lead to issues with your bite, infection, and even your ability to chew. It’s important to have them replaced as soon as possible and a dental bridge is often the ideal solution.
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges (or fixed bridges) are simply one way in which teeth can be replaced. Just as their name suggests, they literally bridge the gaps that are caused by a missing tooth or set of teeth.
The dental bridge itself usually consists of two crowns – one on each side of the gap – and a false tooth (or set of teeth), which fits snugly in-between. The crowns can be placed on both natural teeth and dental implants and they act as an anchor, attaching to the bridge and securing it firmly in place.
Before undergoing dental bridge treatment, your dentist will discuss the different types of false teeth that are available and which they think will be best for you. They are made from a wide range of materials, including gold, alloys, and porcelain, and the decision is often based on the position of the missing tooth, its intended aesthetic appearance, and the overall cost of the procedure.
