Dr. Carlos Castillo

My name is Carlos Castillo and I have moved to Ireland after over 8 years working as a specialist dentist in Spain.

 

I have practiced implant and periodontal dentistry for many years following my postgraduate education. I have attained postgraduate Masters degrees in Periodontics and Mucogingival Surgery from San Pablo CEU University, Madrid-Spain [2015] and Masters in Advanced Oral Surgery and Implantology, University of Lleida, Lérida-Spain [2107].

 

I am delighted to join Pembroke Dental as part of the specialist dentist team. Together with my colleagues who specialise in cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, and oral surgery, we can combine our specialist therapies to provide the highest level of comprehensive dental care to our patients under one roof.

 

I am limiting my practice to Periodontal [Gum] and implant dentistry as I have years’ experience in this area. I undertake all aspects of specialist periodontal therapy. I offer a broad range of periodontal treatments such as

 

 

  • Treatment of Periodontal [Gum] disease
  • Gum and Bone grafting
  • Guided bone and tissue regeneration
  • Cosmetic gum surgery

 

I also undertake dental implant placement and rebuilding. I am currently placing Nobel Biocare dental implants-one of the most respected and well researched brand of dental implant worldwide. Dental implants are the way of the future for many patients in my opinion, offering a really good alternative to dentures for missing teeth if placed correctly and with care.

 

All my patients shall be treated to the highest level that I can achieve with patient satisfaction being my highest priority.

Five minutes with Dr. Nina King

 

Where did you start your dentistry career?

 

I studied in London at the Royal London Hospital School Of Medicine and Dentistry. I was born in the UK but I had lived abroad for most of my life until then, so I was excited to get back to University there.

 

What do you enjoy most about dentistry and how do you spend your spare time?

 

I enjoy establishing a connection with my patients and am honored that they trust me to help them. Giving someone confidence in their smile again is a great feeling for them and for me!

I am a travel fanatic and love exploring new places, cultures, languages and food. When at home I enjoy reading and simply spending time with the family which includes our two dogs!

 

What is the last thing you have done to improve your skills/knowledge?

 

I’m always learning and trying to stay-up-to date. I have been spending a lot of time recently with the Cerec dentistry portal and increasing my knowledge of the technology/applications so I can continue to push digital dentistry forwards.

 

What are the greatest changes you have seen in dentistry in the last 10 years?

 

I can´t believe in the past 24 years since qualifying, how quickly things have been advancing. For me it´s about the improvements in materials and their capabilities. I know material science sounds like a very dull field, but adhesive bonding and improved ceramic strengths have changed the way I practice. For example, take Porcelain veneers, some of the materials can be made just 0.4mm thick and we use these to cover the teeth to make smile improvements. That´s almost as thin as a contact lens, so it means less drilling of the teeth, less time, less sensitivity afterwards and still great strength and beauty.

 

Are you seeing a bigger demand from people who want to improve the appearance of their smiles?

 

Absolutely! The internet/media has opened up a world of possibilities for people who might be looking at smile improvements.  What I still find so interesting is that many people don´t realize there may be several options available to suit different budgets and lifestyles. Often, I see patients in their 50´s or 60´s who have hated their smiles their whole life but didn´t know that it´s not too late and things can still be changed. For example, if teeth are not straight, it doesn´t necessarily mean they need 18 months of full braces. For the older patient especially, we can sometimes do simpler movements working with the orthodontist and later just do some build ups and whitening to create a much better look. I love seeing people´s reactions when they finally feel they can smile for the camera!
