Preventative Dentistry » Smoking Cessation

Many studies have shown that smoking and using tobacco products has a detrimental effect on your teeth and gums. The problem is caused by the fact that tobacco affects the gum tissue cells, making smokers more prone to getting infections in the form of gum and periodontal diseases. Other negative effects of smoking are: bad breath, stained teeth, jawbone loss, shrinking gums, mouth sores, decreased senses of taste and smell, poor healing of mouth sores and hairy tongue.smoking cessation

In addition to this, most people don't know that smoking is the main cause of mouth cancer, with thousands of people dying every year from mouth cancer brought on by smoking.

As dental professionals it is important for us to tell you the risks for smoking and to help you to quit by giving you information and support. By cutting down and stopping smoking or using tobacco products your oral health will benefit very quickly and you will notice changes in your certain mouth. It is essential that you come into the practice for regular check-ups so we can help you maintain good oral health and give you advice and encouragement.

Bruce Mutch is very patient focused on an individual basis, his very reassuring and calm approach helps to relax the patient.

- Mark Galloway, 58, Gerrards Cross Routine check ups and cleaning. Previously crowns.

 

  Now a positive experience going to the dentist rather than something to dread. Fantastic professional service from the moment you enter until you leave. You could not beat it. Reassures, comfortable, listens to and relaxes compared to the very stressful experiences with previous dentists. The relationship is based on trust – I have total confidence in the professional expertise and empathetic attitude – previously a 'nervous patient'. All staff are friendly and professional. It is clear that there is an ethos of putting the patient at ease and providing very excellent standards of care. I just wish I had found this practice earlier.

- Anne Garrihy, 53, Gerrards Cross Routine check ups and cleanings, previously had crowns and fillings.
