Patient Story – Failing Dental Implants in a Smoking Patient

Patient Story – Failing Dental Implants in a Smoking Patient

One of the main reasons why people get gum disease around teeth are, cigarette smoking, irregular attendance at the dental hygienist and sub-optimal daily cleaning of the teeth and gums. If all these reasons are not addressed when a patient is having dental implants placed, then the gum disease will be repeated around those dental implants.

In this vlog, Ope presents a case where the patient had gum disease around her natural teeth and dental implants. Ope discusses the various considerations that a dentist has to think about when finding solutions to the problems. Ope also reveals the beautiful new smile of the patient as a result of the dental treatment, another very happy client of London Dental Specialists.
