Childrens Dentistry

43,000 kids had general anaesthetic to get their teeth taken out in 2016, 2017 and this rate is increasing. No kid in this day and age should be under general anaesthetic to have their teeth taken out, because it is an entirely preventable disease. And what’s the cause of this? Diet, sugar, more than brushing their teeth, it’s sugar in the diet.

We’ve been organising an oral health team on Cavendish Dental practice to go to the local schools in the area here. We’re going to go to see Pear Tree School, we’ve got some other schools lined up in order to educate the kids, educate the parents on preventing rotten teeth in children.

The long-term consequences of kids having their teeth pulled under general anaesthetic is that they become nervous of the dentist, they’re more likely to be dental phobic

If your kids are haven’t got a dentist, they’re looking for a dentist, we’re taking on any age kids. So, come and give us a bell at Cavendish Dental Practice give us an email, we’ll try to book you in. We’re trying to help children because no kid should be having their teeth taken out because of rotten teeth.

Stop the Rot!

Trishan Malhi, Dentist at Cavendish Dental Practice in Derby

Extraction of teeth when a child results in dental phobia !!!!

The rise in child dental extractions under general anaesthetic has reached nearly 43,000 in 2016-17 and is up from previous years.

These children will probably be affected by the psychological trauma during the treatment under GA which in turn leads to a lifetime of fretfulness and anxiety about dental treatment. Having general anaesthetic and having your teeth ripped out has major consequences. The main ones before the procedure are pain, distress for child and parent, fear of the unknown, loss of control.

After the procedure there is blood loss, pain after the procedure, distress. This experience results in fear of the dentist later in life, and in some circumstances dental phobia. The principle cause of rotten teeth in young kids is sugar, which is found in fizzy drinks, sweets, chocolates, and processed foods, but most parents know this.

Sugar is addictive and the scenario when I ask parents about why they give their kids sweets or chocolates is the situation of the child playing up, and the best way for them to get the child to stop whinging or crying is to give them sugar in some form. As well as rotten teeth, too much sugar increases the risk of diabetes, and the type II form of diabetes which is related to diet and lifestyle is increasing in kids.

The lack of exercise and increased sugar intake are causing 1 in 3 kids to be overweight or obese in the UK. Sugar is the principle cause for all of these diseases. If sugar was a bacteria we would have found an antibiotic to kill it.

The case against sugar is multifactorial, from a dental point of view it starts with oral health education. At Cavendish Dental Practice we recently contacted the local schools to organize our oral health promotion team to visit the schools and also to talk to the parents of very young children at a coffee morning.

We just recently arranged a Saturday kids registration day on March 3rd so that we could directly examine kids mouths and treat early the rotten teeth, before it is to late. In this day and age no child should be having extraction of rotten teeth.

I have recently had treatment at Cavendish Dental Practice and the service provided is excellent, the staff are extremely efficient, professional, kind and caring. I was really nervous for the procedure but Dr Harps Saduera put me at ease, she was extremely thorough and went through my medical history before treating me. She explained everything to me and calmed my nerves. I can honestly say that Harps is one of the nicest people I’ve met, I would highly recommend this more

From start to finish for my braces treatment, Dr Mahli and the team at Cavendish Dental Practice have been amazing. The whole process was fully explained to me, Dr Mahli and David talked me through each stage I went through, and thw treatment did not finish until Dr Mahli was completely satisfied with the results. I am over the moon with the results and never thought this could be achieved. I would 100% recommend Dr Mahli for orthodontic treatment. Thank you so much to everyone at Cavendish Dental more

Mahisa and Katerina have been treating my mum for the last few month's and she's been so happy with the service. She hasnt dreaded a single appointment and felt at ease the whole time. Mahisa has been so clear with the dental plans that it's made it so easy for my mum to attend the surgery alone, even if there is a language barrier. There has been no surprises just exceptional service. Thank you ladies !read more

I called and was given an appointment that same day and treated as though I was a regular visitor here, made to feel very welcome - reception staff are lovely and showed me to a waiting room for where I’d wait for the consultation of my veneers. No pressure to make any decisions on what work I’d want on my teeth, given an abundance of information and told to have a good think. Very clear, friendly and informative. Thank you more

I have not been to the dentist in about 3 years and before that 7 years! I plucked up the courage to attend as I had toothache. Turns out I needed fillings and a clean. I was terrified. However, I saw Dr Shetye & Gemma who were very calming, reassuring, Dr Shetye explained every single step of the way. She also stopped a few times with mini breaks, which helped. She was giving me techniques such as breathing through my nose etc. The injection was pretty painless, which I was shocked about. She was very calming and understanding. Whilst I still dislike the process of the dentist, I can't believe how well it went and painless it was. Dr Shetye & Gemma made my experience so much better and I am extremely thankful. Thank more
Dr Aisha Hussain has been brilliant. I had a few problems over the year with my tooth. She was professional and ensured I was not uncomfortable in any way. Due to me being pregnant she regularly checked my tooth as I had cavity developing. Dr Aisha monitored and prescribed me toothpaste which would maintain throughout my pregnancy. I would definitely recommend this practice because of Dr A Hussain. I booked Dr Aisha to check my sons teeth when he turned one. Very kind, caring and compassionate who will go above and beyond for her more

Dr Poonam Chitkara and Dental Nurse Odete deserve the sticker for patience today. As you can see they definitely got to see her teeth her mouth was open that wide whilst scream. Lylah gets off the chair stops crying, says bye and proclaims to “see you soon” and walks out. I bet they can’t wait 🤣Walking out of reception she sticks her fingers in my mouth says A, B, C, D 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10. Clapping herself!!! How she heard over the screaming what they were saying I will never know but she was definitely listening!Can’t wait to stick this picture in her scrapbookread more

Dr Shetye and Haseeba treated me today for an ongoing root canal. I have had 2 root canals prior to this at other dental practices and have been somewhat traumatised by the previous treatments. However, having now had 3 sessions of this root canal treatment, I can honestly say that it's the most comfortable I have been in a dentist chair. Both Dr Shetye and Haseeba were relaxed throughout the session, checking I was ok and explaining things, which put me at ease. i have also experienced very limited pain throughout the process which is a new experience for me. This kind of experience is slowly lifting the anxiety I have about visiting the more

After of a number of absent years I nervously attended my first appointment 08.02.19 where I was greeted by a really friendly and welcoming receptionist called Demmi. I was then examined by the dentist Shweta Shetye and her assistant nurse Haseeba who teally put me at ease. They even remembered me from when I took my husband last October! Shweta was really thorough as I explained what my symptoms were where she gave excellent advice as to the course of action to be taken and ensured I understood the process and timescale. I can honestly say it was one of the nicest dental experiences. Would Irecommended Cavendish Dental Practice? In a heartbeat!!! Thanks soooooo much for putting me at ease and for a team caring approach!!!read more

Attended my first appointment October 2018 after many many years of avoidance but couldn't avoid it any longer due to severe toothache which required urgent treatment. I couldn't fault the team from the greeting of the receptionist to the sensitive approach and excellent treatment from the dentist Sheeta Shetye and her assistant nurse Haseeba who between the two of them, along with Dr Marley who assisted towards the end of my treatment, I successfully underwent a major extraction. They were so accommodating where they even let my wife play gospel music in the background as she made them aware of our Christian faith and our trust in God to get me thru this and how as choir members of our local church, we find faith-filled Christian music helps to relax and bring peace. So, thanks to everyone at Cavendish Dental Practice for all you did for me!! My wife is now planning to register here too!!read more

Got registered and an appointment the same day after being told by my own dentist I would have to wait 6 weeks for an appointment, From start to finish I received an amazing customer experience, Kirsty the receptionist was very efficient in dealing with me on the phone and upon arrival. I have since had a follow up appointment within 7 days. The whole process from start to finish has been easy, the dental nurse's have been attentive and caring.

My whole life, I have had a HUGE phobia of going to see dentists. I avoided and postponed treatments. Even checkups were enough to make me weak at the knees.That all changed when I joined Cavendish Dental Practise, who have lived up to their slogan “home of calm and caring dentistry”.For the first time in my life, all my dental work is complete and I am no longer afraid to sit in the chair. This is all thanks to the amazing staff, who go above and beyond to make me and my family feel welcome and supported.I’ve even managed to convince my Dad to join, who hadn’t been to the dentist for over 20 years, due to a similar phobia. He has also just completed his full treatment.Special thanks to Kirsty on reception for being so kind, supportive and caring, and to my dentist Aisha, who is the most wonderful, calming and friendly dentist I have ever met.Thank you to everyone there!read more

I was very nervous going until i met Doctor Aisha, who swept my worries away by the time i was in the chair. She was very confident which helped so much. Been going their last 2 months to make up for 20+ years of sweets cakes and Kellog's Frosties "cornflakes with added sugar".Never waited more than 15 minutes for my appointment with a full surgery. Seriously if you trying to figure out which Dentist to go to, it's simple. Looking forward to seeing Doctor Aisha more

Dr Malhi is the greatest dentist in the world, not just because he's good at his job but because he's a nice person too. It's taken 30 years to get my mum over her dentist phobia and he's done it in 4 appointments. All of the staff here are wonderful, nothing is ever rushed and there's always time for you. I would absolutely recommend anyone with a phobia of dentists go here. I had braces here I was told at a previous orthodontists that it would take 7 years. 1 year and 2 months later my braces are off and everyone's getting sick of my toothy selfies!! Anyone looking to get braces or any dental cosmetics for that matter, DO IT!! Thank you Cavendish!! You're all amazing!!read more

I'm returning to professional acting (after a break to build my own business) and have a few auditions approaching. My teeth had deteriorated and it was a massive issue for me (not least because I needed new photographs etc). After attending several appointments to stabilise the poor condition of my teeth and to prevent future damage, I asked Dr Malhi if he could help to improve the appearance of a front tooth with an obvious hole and damage due to smoking. He was very sympathetic and booked an appointment for me in time for the photo session. I was absolutely delighted with the result, but more importantly, it immediately boosted my confidence. So now I only have to worry about my acting ability and not my teeth! All members of staff have been very friendly, caring and polite. Thank you so more
