Why do I need to see the hygienist?
Dental Implants are not “fit and forget”. That is to say they, like natural teeth need to be looked after well by you in order to maintain health. Our hygienist service can help you with this.
As a new patient to Confident Dental Implants Centre, we have already made a sincere commitment to you to ensure that your
mouth is the healthiest it can be and help you to keep it that way.
In 2011, Confident Dental Care & Implant Centre were recognised with a national UK award for “Preventive Practice of the Year” and we strive to maintain these high standards in helping you to prevent oral disease.
When you look in the mirror, you may see your teeth which appear healthy on the surface but it’s easy to forget that damage could be happening underneath your gums where you just cannot see.
Gum disease happens gradually, is not usually painful and results in bleeding gums, bad breath and eventually loosing teeth or implants. Research also shows there is a link between smoking and periodontal disease (severe gum disease) and other health concerns like diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Your hygienist will help you keep your mouth clean and healthy and your breath fresh which in turn will give you greater confidence, keep your smile sparkling and keep your teeth firmly in place!
Your Dental Health is a lifetime investment that we can help you protect through effective Dental Hygiene.
Top 5 reasons to visit our hygienists:
- Prevent and if necessary, treat existing gum disease around teeth (periodontitis) or implants (peri-implantitis)
- Stop gums from bleeding (gingivitis)
- Keep your breath fresh (avoid halitosis)
- Avoid exacerbation of associated health problems such as heart disease and diabetes
- Prevent oral disease with the intention to keep your teeth and/or implants healthy for life
