After Care

We pride ourselves in supporting you step by step through your dental treatment: From consultation, initiation to completion and beyond. Christiane, Gareth and John will always discuss aftercare with you, tailored to you, your procedure, your oral health and well-being. In some cases, details and specific recommendations for your aftercare are included in your treatment plan. It is in your best interest to follow these recommendations to promote effective healing, and start enjoying the benefits of your procedure or treatment.

Your ongoing oral hygiene is also supported by regular Perio appointments with Hazel The Hygienist.

Your aftercare and healing are further reinforced by our dental nurses Hannah, Karen, Louise and Stephanie who are your direct point of contact to your dentist as dental care nurses. Our nurses call our patients after dental surgery when required just so we know you are ok too! Teviot Dental – above all…….care.

Implants

After placement of dental implants

The place of a dental implant can be very simple or may be complicated depending on the circumstances of your case. Post-operative care is very important. Unnecessary pain and the complications of infection and swelling can be minimized if the instructions are followed carefully. There may be a metal healing abutment protruding through the gingival (gum) tissue at the implant site. It should be cleaned just like a tooth. You must be careful not to chew on the implant during the entire healing phase until the tooth is place on the implant.

Partial dentures, bridges or full dentures should not be used immediately after surgery. Biting directly on the gauze will stop bleeding faster and prevent bleeding under the gums around the implant.

  • General Dentistry

    The modern dental practice is customer-focused. That means it offers a welcoming, relaxing environment that puts its customers – not patients – at ease.

  • Restorative Dentistry

    Restorative dentistry is the study, examination and treatment of diseases of the oral cavity, the teeth and their supporting structures.

  • Dental Implants

    If you have a missing tooth or loose ill-fitting dentures then dental implants could provide you with a viable and permanent solution to the personal and practical issues that this can cause.

  • Tooth Alignment

    Before placing braces on your teeth you will need a check-up for decay or gum problems. Do visit your dentist or the School Dental Clinic regularly, even when you are on braces.

  • Visit our Hygienist

    Our Hygienist Perio Therapy treatment aims to help you achieve your own healthiest possible oral health. This is done by helping you understand the processes of Dental disease, especially gum disease which still accounts for 3 out of 4 teeth ultimately lost. Your teeth will be cleaned using thorough but gentle techniques leaving your mouth clean and potentiality healthier.

  • Wrinkle Reduction

    I believe in a holistic rejuvenation approach to treatments and tend to aim towards subtle results that make you look younger and fresher rather than a fake and over filled appearance.
    - Dr. Med. Dent. Christiane Wassmuth-Gibbs

  • Tooth Whitening

    Whitening is a process where the tooth discolouration is ‘whitened’ to a lighter shade. It removes the staining agent through chemical means.
