It’s true that many dental issues can be avoided by maintaining a good level of oral hygiene. It is estimated that just 1mm of dental plaque contains over 200 million bacteria, which can easily spread and develop biofilm, a breeding ground that is almost immune to drug therapy and the body’s defence system. The build-up of dental plaque can be often be overlooked. If left untreated plaque can lead to numerous complications including gum disease and, consequently, tooth loss.

After your initial therapy the team at Pure Periodontics will schedule a re-assessment appointment. At this appointment the healing response is evaluated and, if necessary, further treatment will be discussed and planned.
If you have previously had periodontitis you will be at an increased risk of developing peri-implant disease. You should therefore attend regularly for supportive periodontal maintenance.
If you have implants but do not regularly see a dental hygienist you would be welcome to attend Pure Periodontics as a ‘walk in’ hygiene patient for an assessment and maintenance.
