Dental Hygiene

How our Hygienists can help you achieve great dental health.

Clean teeth make a great smile and regular visits with the Dental Hygienist keep your teeth plaque free and shiny. Hygienists also play a big part in keeping your mouth healthy, as many people experience gum problems. These include bleeding and sore gums, bad breath, painful and loose teeth. Our preventive and maintenance appointments are here to help you obtain a healthy and odour free mouth. We know that the health of our mouth and the health of our body are linked and one can affect the other. That is why we work hard to help you achieve optimal dental health so we can optimise your overall health as well.

 

Can I see the Hygienist without seeing the Dentist?

Absolutely, our Hygienists are able to treat patients under something called Direct access which was granted in 2013. However, they will advise you to visit the Dentist if they are worried about something in your mouth.

What is Airflow?

New Airflow technology gently removes stains caused by smoking, food and drink with a gentle warm spray of special powder and water (only the spray touches the tooth). No more polishing with rubber cups and brushes. It also removes plaque up to 4mm into gum pockets and those hard to reach areas in between teeth helping to prevent gum disease. It’s ideal for patients who don’t like seeing the Hygienist, the spray is kind to teeth and gums and you will feel and see the difference immediately.

 

It’s brilliant for implant maintenance and is gentle on implant surfaces. Why wouldn’t you look after your implants after you spent all that money on them!

 

Stained dentures can often be cleaned with our Airflow technology helping to keep things looking good too.
