1. What are Composite fillings?

    19th October 2009 by thecourtyardclinic

    before

    afterDon’t you find sometimes when you go to your dentist you just don’t know what they are talking about. Mrs. Jones we are going to put a “composite filling” on this tooth. What is a composite filling? Well let me try and explain. As long as I can remember there has been various types of filling material available, from the well know amalgam filling (metal fillings) which I might add…. The Courtyard Clinic does not use , to more modern white filling materials. Composite is the technical name for a white plastic filling material.

    What does it offer to you…. the patient? Composite fillings bond (stick) to the tooth, so if the tooth was heavily broken a composite filling could be bonded to the tooth and provide more strength. Now I’m not saying this form of treatment is applicable to all cases but it is a good alternative to a large amalgam filling. Composite fillings are usually placed using rubber dam isolation so as to minimize saliva contamination and to enable the filling to be placed under optimal conditions. In some cases where there is very little tooth left alternative options may need to be considered such as porcelain crowns/ onlays/inlays.

    I hope this has helped.

    I am writing to say how delighted I am with my new teeth. The treatment I received from Dr George was extremely professional and all the staff are friendly and efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Courtyard Clinic.

  3. What is an implant?

    16th October 2009 by thecourtyardclinic

    Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth. Loose dentures or embarrassing gaps in your smile can become a thing of the past. Everyone deserves a beautiful smile.
    Each implant is placed into a socket at the precise location of the intended new tooth, and then a crown is placed on the implant.
    It looks and feels like a real tooth.
    Whether you have one tooth missing or several missing….. implants can be an affordable solution to make poor dentures fit better, allow patients to get rid of their dentures completely or mean that dentures are never required in the first place.
    Our implant surgeons offer a free initial consultation to allow you to explore what might be possible at no cost or obligation.


  4. My biggest concern is cost, do you have any finance options?

    by thecourtyardclinic

    Finance packages available.

    We can arrange 0% interest free credit over six or twelve months and low interest options in association with Hitachi Capital finance to offer an affordable solution.

    Easy to manage monthly repayments.

    Think of it as dentistry in ‘bite size portions’ hassle free and easy to apply for.


  5. What our patients say about us.

    15th October 2009 by thecourtyardclinic

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at The Courtyard Clinic for their help and understanding regarding my dental treatment, the inital understanding I recieved when I explained my fears, meant a lot to me, the warm welcome at every visit, the words of encouragement from you all, it all helped me to prepare me for the journey ahead.
    I would especially like to thank Amit and Melanie for being so patient with me and carrying out my treatment in a caring and professional manner, their words on encouragement were much needed during my visit. The way Amit would show me every stage of the treatment on the screen, and talk me though it, was reasuring, it makes such a difference having it explained to me and I found this helped to overcome my fears of the unknown.
    I think my fear stems from the fact that as a child I didn’t understand what was going on, it was for my own good but I found it overpowering and to be honest it scared me.
    Thank you for helping me overcome this fear.

    Kinds regards Mr M.

  7. Whitening and sensitivity

    13th October 2009 by thecourtyardclinic

    A friend has told me that although she is really pleased with the results of her whitening, she did suffer from some sensitivity. Is this normal and how could it be prevented?

    It isn’t unusual that some patients suffer with a little sensitivity after their whitening proceedure. Don’t worry it doesn’t last and there are ways it can be prevented! To help ease the discomfort, you can use a sensitive toothpaste such as Sensodyne or Colgate Total Sensitive or the very effective ‘Tooth Mousse’, as part of your daily routine. Also putting the toothpaste or mousse into your whitening trays and wearing for an hour or so or even overnight will really help…..as well as strictly following the detailed instructions we give you when we fit your home whitening trays.


  8. Melanie's progress so far.

    by thecourtyardclinic

    Melanie joined the team almost a year ago and has settled in extremely well. At the moment she is studying for her Radiography exam which she will take in December.
    This will mean that Melanie will be able to assist the dentists and take x rays for our patients….
    Let’s hope all the hard work pays off.
    Good luck Melanie!


  9. Phobic patients

    12th October 2009 by thecourtyardclinic

    My experience with The Courtyard Clinic has been one of care, excellent customer focus, professionalism and empowerment. Yasmin and her team: Sue and Alison, answered all of my questions and picked up on my body language when I became uncomfortable at any point of my treatment. My anxiety has very much been conquered and my fear of needles has also faded. I feel that now I have a very good team of professionals that I know will look after me and continue to always listen.

    Kind regards

  10. What is a Lingual Brace?

    10th October 2009 by thecourtyardclinic

    A Lingual brace is one that fits on the inside of your teeth either the top or the bottom or both, so the wire and the brackets don’t show at all!
    We can fit it to all of the teeth or just the front ones (Our revolutionary ‘Social Six Treatment’).
    With this technique we can deliver fabulous results within a few weeks or months…and no one will know you are wearing a brace!
