Dental hygiene visits

MAINTAIN YOUR BEAUTIFUL SMILE

Keep your teeth healthy & clean

Dental examinations alone aren't enough to future-proof your mouth, and we encourage you to visit our expert hygienist every six months too. A great way to remind yourself is by scheduling your hygiene appointments and routine examinations together.

No matter how thoroughly you brush, you will always miss something - your brush simply can't reach all the places it needs to. Our hygienist will clean your teeth with specialist tools to dislodge plaque and tartar from the places you can’t reach. This deep clean will significantly reduce your risk of gum disease and tooth decay, as well as remove unsightly surface stains from your teeth.

Airflow tooth polishing

We are proud to offer one of the latest teeth cleaning innovations: Airflow Tooth Polishing. Unlike a regular scale and polish, Airflow works by disclosing any plaque and tartar on your teeth with a blue solution before removing them with a gentle jet of water, air and powder particles. It is an effective way to combat stains caused by coffee, red wine and tobacco - leaving your teeth whiter and brighter.

 

We choose Airflow cleaning because it is quicker and more gentle than other methods, making for a more comfortable experience in the chair – especially for those with sensitive teeth and gums.

Dental hygiene for children

Children can benefit from having their teeth polished. The hygienist can also apply fluoride varnishes to help prevent decay. The permanent (or ‘adult’) back teeth can also benefit from having the biting surfaces sealed. This is done by applying a special plastic coating to the biting surface soon after the teeth come through. For more advice, visit our information on ‘pit and fissure sealants’.
