Hygiene & Air Polish
Preventative dentistry, provided by your hygienist, plays a vital role in protecting your oral health. Regular treatments from a hygienist combined with dental check-ups can greatly improve oral health and the overall appearance of your teeth. Airflow polishing is a hygiene treatment that effectively removes stains on the front and back of teeth, leaving you with a smile to be proud of.
Benefits of Regular Dental Hygiene Visits
Regular visits to your hygienist will help identify any potential oral health issues at an early stage before they result in discomfort or require potentially costly treatment.
Removal of plaque and tartar build-up helps prevent the release of acids that are harmful to your teeth and gums. Brushing alone is inadequate in removing the build-up of dental plaque and tartar. Within approximately 72 hours any unremoved plaque will harden into tartar, which cannot be removed with a toothbrush, but can be effectively tackled by your hygienist.
Protection Against Gum Disease
NHS data suggests that 50% of those over the age of 35 suffer from some degree of gum disease. Gum disease is reversible in its early stages, however, if left unchecked it can progress and ultimately lead to pain, bad breath and tooth loss. Your hygienist can help safeguard your gums by removing harmful bacteria from below the gum line and get your oral health back on track.
Elimination of Stubborn Stains
Certain foods, drinks and medications, as well as smoking, can result in stained teeth. These stubborn stains can be removed using the AIR-FLOW system, a combination of water, compressed air and fine powder particles that quickly and comfortably clean and polish teeth, even those areas that are difficult to access. This fast, comfortable method of teeth cleaning is suitable for most patients, including those with sensitive teeth, implants, bridges, veneers and crowns. So you can show off your clean smile in no time.

An Airpolish treatment is a quick and easy way to have pesky general stains removed from your teeth.
