Periodontal disorders such as tooth loss and gingivitis have been identified as a potential risk marker for cardiovascular disease in a large study reported April 9, 2014. More than 15,000 patients with chronic coronary heart disease provided information on their dental health, with results showing that indicators of periodontal disease (fewer remaining teeth, gum bleeding) were common in this patient group and associated with numerous cardiovascular and socioeconomic risk factors.

Having had two implants done by Dr John Carrigy 12 years ago and absolutely no issues with them since, I didn’t hesitate to request a referral to Foundation Dental and Dr Carrigy when I needed another implant recently. Once again, I was most impressed with the preparation and care taken to ensure a sterile environment for the procedure, which was very reassuring. Furthermore, John explains what he is doing and why throughout. He takes the trouble to understand his patient and fully answer any questions or concerns. There was minimal pain or discomfort in the days after the procedure, and two weeks later everything has healed perfectly. I would recommend John Carrigy to anyone considering an implant. It beats all other options and the professionalism shown by Dr Carrigy is outstanding.

Last time I had periodontal treatment I had to do two treatments with a huge general anaesthetic needle in my gums where each time I was in agony for days after.This time with Dr Carrigy I had one session where I had numbing gel applied to my gums and was out eating lunch with my friends an hour after treatment.Total cost this time was less than a third of the last treatment's cost and my out of pocket cost was only a few hundred dollars compared to thousands last time because I didn't blow all of my major dental health fund's cover like last time.I was really dreading going through perio treatment again but seeing someone who uses modern techniques with modern equipment is nowhere near as awful as my experience last time.

Just had two implants commenced wit Dr. John Carrigy. Absolutely painless and done with skill and professionalism. I would absolutely recommend Foundation Dental to anybody seeking quality dental care. Dr. CARRIGY’s experience in dealing with DVA and his teamwork with Dr. Justin BOULTON (prosthedontist) is top shelf.

Dr Carrigy was very professional & pleasant when explaining the procedure which made me comfortable in proceeding with such a major procedure. In short,not as painful in more ways than one would normally expect!
