Films of bacteria called Biofilm start to appear on implants as quickly as they do on teeth. The major problem is that this biofilm on implants is resistant to antibiotics and antiseptics. Hence, the biofilm can damage the tissues that keep the implant in place. Thus, the accuracy of your cleaning of your teeth and implants is very vital. This means that oral hygiene and care of implants is vital not only after the final crowns, bridges or denture placement but also during the healing (osseointegration) phase.
Dental Implant placement requires the patients gums to be healthy prior to implant placement and at least 6 months healing period allowed after any gum (periodontal) treatment.
Studies have shown that patients who smoke and patients with previous poor gum health (periodontal health) occurrence have a reduced success rate to patients who are not smokers and with no previous gum health problems. This means that we prefer to re-assess and monitor the implants more frequently on patients who smoke and patients with previous poor gum health (periodontal health) occurrence.
We recommend that you have regular hygiene treatment at least every 6 months. For those patients who have had gum disease prior to starting the treatment, hygiene treatment is recommended every 3 months.
We also recommend an annual examination and a regular radiograph to check the implant treatment.

Having suffered poor dentistry for years, I had reached the end of my tether in February this year. I researched on line and was pleased to find Perfect Smile studios' website. After the first consultation I was so impressed I decided to have all the treatment recommended. I can honestly say Dr Doshi and his team are true professionals and I would not hesitate to recommend them. I really have the perfect smile.

Having researched every aspect of the Perfect Smile Studios website, I was left in no doubt that I would be in capable hands.
I started the process back in January and after my first consultation, I decided to go all out and undergo all treatment that was recommended. I was confident in what I saw, and paid for my treatment up front. Every visit to the studio, I was always greeted by the staff in a warm friendly manner which quickly put me at my ease, I knew I was in the hands of a professional dedicated team. I couldn't' fail to be impressed by the level of expertise and hard work they all applied to their tasks.
Rahul Doshi is my idea of a true professional, an artist, a perfectionist. You can put total trust in him knowing that he will come up with the perfect smile that's right for you. I cannot express enough how happy I am to have completed my treatment and have a great smile looking back at me in the mirror, and the best part is you get to carry it around with you all the time.
Thanks to everyone at the Perfect Smile Studio, you are brilliant and I will recommend you at every opportunity I get.
