Keeping Leicester smiling
Here at Aesthetic Smiles, our trained and highly professional staff are committed to providing Leicester with a bespoke dental service which is tailored to people’s specific needs and requirements. It is our philosophy that, as no two sets of teeth are identical, so no two sets of treatment should be exactly the same. Rather, we feel that each treatment we provide ought to be moulded to fit the individual requirements presented to us by each of our patients. Those seeking general dentistry in Leicester need look no further than our dedicated and approachable, fully qualified dental practitioners here at Aesthetic Smiles.
At Aesthetic Smiles, we believe that prevention is the best form of treatment. By properly educating our clients on the correct way to maintain a high standard of oral hygiene, we endeavour to ensure that the patient will have less need for more complicated procedures and thus save themselves any potential discomfort and extra fees. However, at Aesthetic Smiles, we understand that there are numerous factors as to why patients may be seeking general dentistry in Leicester and we tailor our services to fit whatever is presented to us. One method of general dentistry in Leicester we provide is a polish, scale and cleaning service. This utilises specialist dental equipment to eradicate plaque and tartar build-up in difficult-to-reach grooves in a patient’s mouth. This can instantly rid the teeth of years of stains which may have arisen from smoking, drinking red wine, tea or coffee, general neglect or certain medications. Those who seek this method of treatment can walk out of our practice with a brighter, cleaner smile and a renewed sense of self-esteem and confidence.
The root of the issue
Gum disease is the leading preventable cause of tooth decay and loss within the UK, and here at Aesthetic Smiles, we feel that education is one of the most effective ways of preventing gum disease. Recognising the telltale signs of gum disease is a key method of stopping it in its tracks, before it can manifest into something more harmful. The initial stage of developing gum disease is called gingivitis, it results in gums becoming red and inflamed. Patients may also spit blood when brushing their teeth – which is a crucial indicator that gingivitis is developing. If it is not properly dealt with, then gingivitis can develop into what is known as periodontal disease. This is when the gum tissue surrounding the patient’s teeth becomes infected and it spreads to the periodontal ligament, which is what connects the teeth to the bone in the jaw. If this occurs, then there is a far greater risk of the patient’s teeth becoming looser. This, if left untreated will eventually result in one or more teeth separating themselves from the periodontal ligament, and the patient losing them. However, this is only the worst case scenario – which is the result of patients not seeking treatment. Here at Aesthetic Smiles, we offer a full range of comprehensive gum disease treatments to ensure this doesn’t happen to you.
