IPL Treatments

IPL (Intense Pulse Light), is a fantastic way to achieve permanent hair reduction.

IPL releases precisely controlled short bursts of light that are absorbed by melanin, (the pigment in hair).

This heats the hair and destroys the root to achieve long term hair reduction.

No more worrying about regular waxing appointments!

Root Canal Treatment

The truth about Root Canal Treatment!

toothache

When people are told that they need a root canal treatment, they usually think about pain.

However, the pain they feel is caused by an infection in the tooth, not by root canal treatment.

Our Principle Dentist, Dillon Chan, here at The Ivy Clinic in Teddington, has a particular interest in root canal treatments, and will explain what the treatment involves, and will put you at your ease.

Root canal treatment is done to eliminate that pain and prevent it from coming back, the procedure itself is painless.

A local anaesthetic numbs the tooth and the surrounding area.

Many people may be afraid to have root canal treatment carried out because they are anxious about having any dental treatment.

Please let your dentist know if you are nervous about dental treatment as they can best advise you on how they can help you cope or manage your anxiety.

Has your crown come off?

A lost crown is rarely an emergency, however, it can be painful because the exposed tooth is often sensitive to temperature, pressure or air,

put it in a safe place and make an appointment to see one of our dentists here at The Ivy, as soon as you can.

Smiling Lips

and in the meantime,  here are some helpful tips:

  • Don’t wait too long!
  • What is left of the tooth will not be as strong as your crown. It could be damaged more without the crown to protect it.
  • When a crown is missing for a long time, the teeth next to it may move into the space where the crown was, if this happens, your crown may no longer fit.
  • Apply a little clove oil to the sensitive area with a cotton swab.  This will give you some pain relief.
  • If you’ve lost the filling or crown, you can put dental cement (available at a chemist), directly on the tooth surface. This will help to protect and seal the area until you’re able to see your dentist.
  • Do not use any household glues!  They are not safe to put in your mouth and they could damage the tooth and crown
