Walk in dental hygiene

After recent changes to the rules, direct access to the dental hygienist is now possible. What does this mean? Well, the main differences are: 1. There is no need to be referred by a dentist to see the hygienist. 2. You can simply call the practice, even as a new patient, to book an appointment with our hygienist. 3. Follow up dental hygiene visits can be booked directly without a dental examination. It is still essential, in our opinion, to see the dentist at least once a year for your dental examinations and risk assessments. Working together as a team, will reduce your risk of developing dental disease. After all, prevention is better than cure! To book with our hygienist directly call us on 0207 7311162 or e mail us on info@progressivedentistry.co.uk. Appointments are available on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and selected Saturdays.

Our case of the month for August was a straight forward one but effective. In many cases, we get asked to correct one or two teeth which really bothers our patient.

For our case, one tooth had slipped behind the others and was in cross bite with the lower teeth. This is where the upper tooth actually sits on the inside surface of the lower tooth when closed. This is not desir… READ MORE

Case of the month July 2021- Ceramic Crowns

Our case of the month for July 2021 is quite a complex one involving multiple ceramic crowns after an accident during the first lockdown. Our patient, Xavier, had a cycling accident where he fractured 3 of his front teeth. Now with any trauma case, there is a certain way to handle the situation and it is important not to rush into a specific treatment. The reason being is that once the teeth and gums have been damaged, the consequences may not be apparent for several weeks or months. Hence the use of provis… READ MORE
