We believe our hygienist appointments are an integral part of your dental care. As well as helping to prevent gum disease and tooth loss, they offer you the chance to chat with our hygienist about a healthy diet and good oral health habits including smoking cessation advice. She can introduce you to the latest oral hygiene aids and products for looking after your mouth.
Air Polishing – a gentle cosmetic dental solution for stain removal
In addition, our surgeries are equipped with the latest equipment in ‘air polishing’ which gently and safely removes unwanted stains on the front and back of teeth.
The procedure utilizes a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles to gently and completely remove staining caused by tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco, as well as staining caused by mouthwashes.
Air polishing has many advantages, non-more so than the fact that it is a gentle procedure that greatly reduces discomfort to those suffering from sensitive teeth.
- Removes up to 100% of dental plaque thereby helping to prevent decay, gingivitis and gum disease
- Can be used on dental implants
- Far more effective than a traditional polish
- No heat generated by the procedure
- No contact with the teeth, or pressure against any teeth
- Additionally Air Polishing is a much more gentle process of stain removal and leaves patients with evenly smooth surfaces across their teeth
