England lockdown: Dental practices to remain open

Following the PM’s announcement 4th Jan 2021 that a third lockdown in England will come into effect from midnight 3rd Jan 2021, we have received confirmation from the Office of the CDO that dental services in England are to remain open.

The Government guidance on the national lockdown states: “The majority of public services will continue and you will be able to leave home to visit them. These include the NHS and medical services like GPs and dentists”.

Dental Practices remain open during 4 week lockdown

Despite an impending lockdown private practices will remain OPEN.
It’s safe and essential to attend the dentist. We remain open to all, for both routine and emergency treatments.

Open for business!!

We do have some slight alterations to our normal way of working

Covid 19

Tooth Whitening Question?

Is it safe? Yes, absolutely. 10% CP whitening gel (used in our practice) was originally used to promote wound healing and gum health. Our bodies are equipped to handle peroxide and indeed, the human body actually makes peroxide in the liver, brain and eyes.

Does a light make any difference? All research shows that the light does not change the outcome of whitening.

Is there an advantage to in surgery whitening? Well no, the outcome of in-surgery whitening is not better than home tray whitening regardless of the number of applications.

In summary bleaching teeth has one of the major advances in cosmetic dentistry in the last 25 years. Tray based whitening with 10% CP is versatile, cost-effective and safe!
