I recently 16 months ago had a fixed brace removed and started noticing some gum recession and blood when brushing, being 26 I though it would just go away after treatment! I made a appointment at my own dentist where I was told I had some gum desease with some bone loss and needed hygienist cleaning to help remove it, this was a shock to me as having a brace to straighten teeth and help have a nice smile now I'm looking at really unhealthy gums. I went to my hygienist for 3 sessions with no real improvements, gums red, swollen and taste in my mouth Day in day out was horrible!! I began to read into periodontist disease, and it was good... I knew I needed the best treatment to help me remove this disease! After weeks of studying and looking I decided to go to Leeds IMI clinic for the perioblast laser treatment, I made a appointment for consultation, soon as I arrived you see this is not your normal looking dentist, very modern, all the latest equipment and welcoming from the staff who were unbelievably professional! I had my consultation they examed my gums and teeth, with the microscope and TVs I could see so clear what was going on under my gums, and it wasn't very nice! Dr Martelli was in the surgery that day and he recommended treatment to help remove the gum disease with the laser treatment, this man is like the "god of gum disease" if you have a look on the internet about him!! They took sample of the bacteria inside the gums so they knew exactly how to eradicate it with my laser plan! I needed 3 x 2 hour scaling session before I could have the perioblast treatment, on my sessions of scaling Catherine (dental therapist) was very positive, very professional and you just know your in the best possible place to help you! Usually in my own dentist scaling really hurts, so with 2 hour sessions I was a little bit worried, I did not feel any discomfort what so ever under the microscope with the scaling! After my 3 sessions I arrived for the start of my laser treatment already my gums felt tighter and more healthy, I was recommend 5 session of laser treatment, Catherine started my laser treatment first session, again I was in no pain or discomfort, it feels like the scaling just with a constant beeping of the machine they use! Second session was with Maddy who again was super professional as I'd come to expect from all the staff at the Imi clinic. My gums suddlenly stated to look pale pink something didn't expect in such a short period of time, tighter gums, teeth stable, and my moral boosted! I could not recommend the Imi clinic more to anyone who has gum disease, this place is 5 stars in everything they do, from the very first time you walk inside the clinic! I just wish that I had found them 12 months prior as some of my damage was done from my dentist not picking up with the naked eye on my symptoms! The microscope they use to work on your mouth is the future of dentistry as they can see everything so close, precise treatment then to remove disease! Again thank you to all the staff at the Imi clinic for giving me hope and treating my gum problems. Pink healthy non bleeding gums!
Excellent, 5 stars, this clinic is the future of gum disease, professional and precise treatment, thank you x
