At Marchmont Dental Care our expert dental hygienists can give you lots of advice and support with regards to preventive dental practice and caring for your teeth and gums.

We aim to prevent disease rather than having to treat it. To maintain your oral health you should follow the advice of your dentist relating to your individual treatment.

The basis of good oral health is preventive dental care by taking appropriate oral hygiene measures such as reducing the frequency of consumption of sugary foods and visiting the dentist when recommended.

Gum Disease in Edinburgh

How you care for your teeth and gums at home plays a major role in preventing dental problems and will help you maintain an attractive smile, eat in comfort and minimise the need for any future dental treatment.

Unfortunately we are seeing more patients in Edinburgh suffering from gum disease symptons, that can be painful and expensive to treat.

Medical research continues to present more and more evidence linking gum (periodontal) disease as a risk factor for a range of systemic medical conditions including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease and pregnancy complications.

If you have any questions concerning your part in your oral health care or symptoms that are causing you concern, such as suspected gum disease, please contact us so that we can advise on your best course of treatment.
