Health and hygiene

A staggering 95 per cent of us suffer from gum disease at some point in our lives, but with good hygiene the risks can be easily controlled.

Maintaining your dental wellbeing is vital and your hygiene examination forms an essential part of your healthy living regime. If it isn’t treated, decay in teeth causes pain and discomfort and destroys their structure necessitating more costly treatment to save and rebuild them.

The benefits of good dental hygiene

A simple homecare regime of brushing and flossing, good diet and regular dental health checks are all it takes to prevent most problems from arising.

    • Prevents the risk of gum disease and other problems and illnesses linked to it
    • Enjoy fresher breath and keep gums in the pink
    • Prevent gum recession, loose or drifting teeth and reduce tooth sensitivity
    • Enjoy a healthier mouth and benefit from improved overall wellbeing

Our top tips for looking after your dental implants

Caring for your investment is important to achieve the best long-lasting results and to ensure your new teeth always look their best.

“At Leyland Implants, we advise our patients to brush their teeth as normal as soon as possible with a soft-bristled brush after implant placement, but to avoid the surgery area for the first week. Brushing will prevent infection and stimulate tissue healing.”

“On a daily basis, it’s important to use special brushes designed to reach the area where your implants meet your gums, as well as interdental brushes and floss to clean between your teeth and your new implant tooth, bridge or denture.”

“We highly encourage our patients to attend regular annual hygiene appointments, so our team of highly trained therapists can give your teeth some extra care and a thorough professional clean.”
