Preventive Dentistry

Dental Implants:

A missing tooth can be replaced by a dental implant without altering the healthy adjacent teeth.

Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They bond with your healthy bone and provide permanent support for dental crowns and dentures. They look and feel just like natural teeth and can last a lifetime.

The Team at PDC understands the importance of maintain good oral hygiene at all times if tooth loss is to be prevented and the patients well being is to be enhanced.

To this end, we offer bespoke hygiene services tailor made to meet all our patients’ individual needs.

Our hygiene team are all very experienced and suitably qualified and GDC registered.

They along with the dentist, recognise that maintenance of healthy bone levels in the mouth is of paramount importance if premature loss of teeth is to be prevented.

They will work with you to identify the level of hygiene care that it necessary for you.

Depending upon the level of cleaning that is required, the hygienists will prescribe the appropriate care from our hygiene menu.

The menu includes:

  • Maintenance care
  • Classic care including the use of an air polisher to remove all stains
  • Extensive clean or root surface debridement under a local anaesthesia

Depending upon the severity of the gum disease treatment may be carried out over the space of 1 or 2 visits.

However, patients with severe gum disease, may require several sessions to remove tartar and bacteria deposits from around and under the gum line.

The hygiene team will provide a tailored daily hygiene and cleaning plan to promote the long-term care and maintenance of the teeth and gums.
