Want to keep your teeth healthy and young looking? Then visit Manor Lodge Dental practice where I’ve been a client since the 1970’s and you won’t be disappointed! Now we have the delightfully lovely, highly professional, and super talented Dr Minakshi Kansal running the practice with her amazing team. There’s nothing they won’t do to make you feel welcome and relaxed whilst delivering first class service. I recently underwent an extensive and seriously complex treatment for my 69 year-old teeth and gums which Dr Kansal administered over a period of several weeks with cat like precision skill. I didn't feel a thing and now I look ravishing! If there was ever an 'X Factor' contest for dentists, Dr Minakshi Kansal would absolutely win! For everything teeth, I cannot recommend this unique dental practice highly enough.. they also have FREE parking!
I visited this dental practice in May this year. I got excellent service. The reception was very polite and helped me with the paperwork of registration. I was seen promptly by Dr Kansal who was superb. She showed me the pictures of my broken tooth. Went through all the treatment options before booking me back for tooth extraction. The extraction was very smooth and all my anxiety about the extraction was taken care . I would highly recommend Dr Kansal to anyone who may need a tooth extraction or any other dental treatment.
Has been by far the best experience. The staff are so warm and friendly. Christina is so good at what she does and I am extremely happy with the results. I was so insecure with my teeth and now i’m so confident. Definitely recommend!
I recently had my Invisalign treatment done by Dr Christina Spyrou, and it was perfect! I was not too keen on the normal train tracks so having Dr Christina do my Invisalign was amazing and there was great customer service every step of the way.
What an assuring and professional dentist.I had a broken tooth that can’t be saved and so had to be taken out.I was dreading the pain and the whole procedure based on the many horror stories I had heard or watched on TV.Dr Kansal assured me she was going to do her utmost best to make the extraction as smooth and pain free as possible.After numbing my gum, she started the extraction.I was extremely surprised when after barely five minutes, she said the tooth was out, with no cutting of gums, etc.This is not because my tooth was loose or almost falling off.Dr Kansal’s professionalism and patient care is very exemplary and assuring.
I have been coming to this surgery since I was a teenager 50 years ago, and have always been very happy with my dental treatment. However busy he is, Stephen remains friendly and patient. He uses up-to-date technology, tells you exactly what he's doing and why, and doesn't intervene unless it's necessary. The hygienist team has worked there for many years, and they are all both thorough and careful to minimise pain. Recently they spotted a potentially very serious (non-dental) health condition which I am now having treated, so I'm extremely grateful to Manor Lodge.
Great dental practice. Lovely personal customer service. Was so happy with the results from my Invisalign and whitening and overall dental care. They really take time to listen and explain and answer questions. Would recommend highly.
After extensive dental work, veneers & composite bonding i now have the teeth i always wanted!I cannot recommend Manor Lodge Dental Practice highly enough.The attention to detail & customer care is second to none.Both dentists Minakshi & Christina are absolutely excellent in everything they do, I was extremely nervous at the beginning, they made the entire process first class!Thank you to everyone at Manor Lodge you are all amazing!
Had a bad experience at my local dentist. Although they had the latest equipment, the service/treatment was completely rushed. So, after a friends recommendation, I decided to switch to Manor Lodge. The service was really good. The hygienist was careful and made sure to double check everything at the end. As for the check up, it wasn't rushed at all, all my questions were answered and the dentist took time to talk me through the results.
Hats off to Manor Lodge and a special call out to Indira. I had to cancel an appointment and the next available slot to see Indira was in March. Being the angel she is, she offered to come in 45 minutes early one day at 7.30am just to see me because I work 40 miles away and can’t do any mid-day times.I love Indira to the moon and back and she’s a brilliant hygienist as well. Chapeau as we cyclists like to say!
Last week needed treatment at Manor Lodge. I was taken in at a very short notice by the Dentist at the Time Minaxshi. My two teeth needed to be extracted, which was performed very professionally, without any pain and most hygienically. I was very impressed by all the staff with their excellent service. I highly recommend Manor Lodge Dental Practice.
I usually don’t write positive reviews but the experience, customer care and end results at Manor Lodge Dental Practice we’re second to none. I cannot think back to another time when I have been treated with such respect and honesty - and the results truly show in my smile. I have literally not stopped smiling since and I couldn’t recommend this practice more!
Wonderful dentist. I’ve been a patient for over 10 years and always come away happy from appointments. The level of customer service is very high and my recent appointment with Christina was brilliant as she was able to fix my chipped front tooth and now I’m so much happier with it. Highly recommend this dental practice
At Manor Lodge Dental Practice, we always do everything we can to save a tooth, but in some cases a tooth extraction is the most suitable course of action for a patient.
Why do I need a tooth extraction?
We’ll only ever recommend a tooth extraction if it is absolutely necessary, but there are a variety of situations in which we might do so. These include:
A tooth that has become damaged or decayed beyond repair
An infected or impacted wisdom tooth
Overcrowding of the mouth
A tooth that has become loose due to injury or trauma
Baby teeth that haven’t fallen out by the time adult teeth erupt
What happens during the treatment?
We understand, that for many – or even most – patients, the thought of tooth extraction is a daunting or nerve-wracking one. With modern techniques, along with our kind, calm, and highly skilled team, there is no need to be nervous, however.
There are two types of tooth extraction that we might perform – simple and surgical.
In a simple extraction, we’ll first administer a local anaesthetic before gently removing the tooth with forceps. We perform this type of extraction on teeth that are clearly visible above the gum line.
A surgical extraction is used in more complex cases where the tooth is not visible above the gum line, or is perhaps broken, causing only part of it to be visible.
In both cases, we will be able to offer dental sedation to patients who feel they will be more comfortable being treated that way.
How should I care for the area after the treatment?
We’ll go through all your after-care needs with you at the time, but after receiving a tooth extraction of either type, there are several recommendations that we’ll make:
Avoid chewing at the site immediately after the procedure – we would recommend going on a ‘soft’ diet for a while
Avoid rinsing the mouth for 24 hours
Once 24 hours has passed, rinse the mouth out with a saltwater solution several times a day for up to a week
Avoid hot food and beverages until after the local anaesthetic has worn off – this is to avoid burning
Once the anaesthetic has worn off, you may want to take a painkiller such as paracetamol or ibuprofen as you may experience some pain at the site of the extraction
