Health starts from the opening into your body.
Quality dental care begins with ensuring that you minimise the risk factors which cause disease. Just as exercise helps keep you in shape it is important to proactively manage disease causing bugs and biofilm from your mouth. This reduces the incidence of tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath.
Regular, tailored hygiene care is central to the provision of quality dentistry. GBT is the new gold standard, to help you keep your teeth for longer. It is used to gently eliminate biofilm (bacteria) found on teeth, implants, appliances and soft tissues. In doing so GBT saves teeth, implants and much more. By combining specialist powder and warm water GBT provides you with the most comfortable hygiene experience available and fast visible results .
Our personalised approach makes use of regular health scores to ensure that we provide you with the most effective care and the right advice at the right time. The latest technology allows you to visualise the harmful biofilm as well as ensuring comfortable treatments to address this.
Great dentist and great experience. Following my recent dental check I had to get some minor work done. Allan Matthews made me feel so comfortable. He explained everything fully and I felt at home and in safe hands. It was clear that Allan truly cares about his patients. My treatment was carried out to a very high standard and I am delighted with the result. Always excellent service and friendly staff throughout the practice.
Neeraj and his team have been looking after the family and me for 24 years - and while the younger members of the family have now moved to another country they still come to the practice for their dental care. Very caring and careful and proactive in what they do. And they don't rush to an inappropriate conclusion but take time to assess difficult situations - "judicious inactivity". This is important when you only get one shot at something. We trust the practice.
I was visiting from the US and broke a tooth.I was given Integrated Dentalcare as a referral from my travel insurance company. I saw Christine Morrell, the dentist, and was very pleased with the service they provided. They saw me the same morning I called and were very professional and friendly. The receptionist was very cordial and welcoming. I would highly recommend this office for any dental needs you might have while in Edinburgh.
People at Integrated Dentalcare were extremely kind and professional. They solved a dental problem I carried on for several years and it was an (almost) painless process.They dealt with my "dentistphobia" and were very understanding. It is unbelievable how much my quality of life has improved since my first visit a couple of months ago. Been picky, the only thing I don´t like is the warning in the receipts about charging you if you need to cancel at the last minute. Other than that, 10 points out of 10.
Delighted with the friendly and professional treatment I have received. I can't thank my dentist Christine enough for the time she has spent on my teeth. Every stage of treatment explained fully with great understanding of what patient hopes end result will look like. You can tell Christine takes great pride in her work. Well done!
GBT is the new and modern way to remove and manage dental biofilm. We tailor treatment protocols to your needs. The treatment is minimally invasive and delivered with maximum comfort (using warm water?). It can be used for general maintenance, advanced gum disease, implant maintenance and care and cleaning around orthodontic appliances efficiently. The products used in GBT change the DNA/RNA of the bacteria in the mouth thus changing the damaging properties and preventing bacterial production. Your hygienist will be able to discuss the benefits of this.
Laser therapy is part of a target approach used to treat areas which have not responded to conventional methods.
Eliminating gum inflammation is about mechanical cleaning. At your hygiene visit the hygienist will discuss toothpastes appropriate to your needs, providing appropriate toothpaste samples to try at home.
If you don’t clean your mouth properly you will suffer inflamed bleeding gums due to gingivitis. For some people this can result in bone loss and eventual loosening of teeth called Periodontal (gum) disease.
