The team from Blue Court Dental enjoyed a golden hour of celebration last month when they attended an exclusive reception at the British Dental Conference and Exhibition in London. The reception was held to celebrate dental practices which had achieved at least ten years or more membership of the British Dental Association’s Good Practice Scheme, known as Gold Membership.

 

Blue Court Dental’s achievement has also been recognised in a celebratory publication that includes a profile of all practices with Gold Membership.

 

At the reception in London the practice teams were presented with a copy of the brochure by the President of the British Dental Association, Dr Barry McGonigle, and had the opportunity to meet fellow professionals from across the country.

 

Dr McGonigle said:

 

“A practice’s membership of the BDA’s Good Practice Scheme demonstrates its whole team’s commitment to high standards, delivering high-quality, patient-centred care and the pursuit of excellence.

 

“The practices that we are celebrating this year have not only achieved the required standards for membership of the Scheme, they have maintained them for at least ten years. This is a significant accomplishment and I offer my sincere congratulations to the teams at each of these practices.”

 

Dr Dixit said “We are very pleased and proud to be the only practice in Harrow and Middx to have achieved this standard, demonstrating our compliance with the Good Practice Scheme for 12 consecutive years.”

Mercury Amalgam Removal

Tuesday, 28th February , 2012

A routine treatment for dental decay is to use fill the area with an amalgam filling. But what is decay?

Using higher magnification and powerful lighting, it is easier to detect decay at an early stage to prevent excessive tooth damage. When cavities are small, they are much easier and less expensive to treat.

Early tooth decay does not tend to show many physical signs. Sometimes the tooth looks healthy, but we may be able to see from an x-ray whether you have any decay under the enamel, any possible infections in the roots, or any bone loss around the tooth.

If the decay is not too serious, our cosmetic dentist will remove all the decay and restore the tooth with a white (tooth coloured) filling.

We can also safely replace silver amalgam fillings with white tooth coloured fillings. Here’s a video that shows this process and the possible results:

Rapid Tooth Movement with the Inman Aligner

Wednesday, 15th February , 2012

We’ve found the Inman Aligner to be a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth.

So if you are unhappy with your smile with crooked or uneven teeth and want the fastest result then the Inman Aligner is for you. Here’s a little video that shows some results:

Click to watch on Youtube
We love the Inman Aligner because its:

  1. Rapid, in around 10-18 weeks it can straighten your front teeth.
  2. Removable, you need to wear the aligner for 20 hours a day, but can remove it for eating and important social occasions.
  3. Comfortable, the Inman Aligner uses a revolutionary new way to gently pull and push at the same time with minimal discomfort.

The aligner works by an innovative mechanism which pushes and pulls your teeth at the same time

The Inman Aligner isn’t suitable for moving back teeth, or for moving teeth great distances however for general orthodontics on the front teeth it is often ideal and provides a rapid orthodontic solution

Length of Treatment

Inman Aligner treatment typically takes 10-18 weeks. Simple cases can complete in a little over 1 month and more complex cases might take 4 months or so.

We’ll will give you a realistic guide of what to expect. Normally lower front teeth move a little faster than uppers.

However, because the Inman Aligner is so highly efficient, when a case is suitable, it works much faster than alternative orthodontics techniques. This is what makes it so revolutionary and moves the Inman Aligner into the realms of cutting edge Cosmetic Dentistry.

What do Gum Disease and Whoopi Goldberg have in common?

Monday, 9th January , 2012

Gum disease can progress painlessly on the whole which means you might not notice the damage it is causing to your gums and bone.

However,  active bacteria can make your gums quite sore which can lead to gum abscesses. If Gum Disease is not treated over a number of years, the bone supporting the teeth can be lost. If the disease is left untreated for a long time, treatment can become more difficult.

There are now also links between gum disease and your overall health, as Whoopi Goldberg discusses in this videoi

If you can’t see the video above, click here to watch on YouTube.

To help you keep your body, teeth and gums healthy I’ve also written a free guide on the subject – you can download your free copy here.
