You may need to see the hygienist

Question 2/3
With some redness or puffiness of the gums or with the occasional bleeding during cleaning it could indicate that you have early gingivitis. If left unchecked gingivitis can proceed to the more serious periodontitis. With dental implants gingivitis can also lead to peri-implantitis, this could ultimately mean failure of the dental implant itself.

It could be that you may need to see the hygienist for a period of time before we went ahead with dental implants, so long as you follow the advice of the hygienist and the problems are not to severe then this can usually be rectified in a couple of hygiene visits.

This next question is about the cost of dental implants, we strive to make dental implants as affordable as possible and offer a range of options, this is a difficult question however we need to ask it in order that we can guide you to the best option for you, please answer as honestly as you can.
