Teeth Whitening

What Are the Benefits of a Dental Cleaning?

Tooth cleaning is an essential dental hygiene that involves removing of dental plaque by scaling and planing the tooth.

 Your dentist,recommends having your teeth cleaned twice a year (every six months) for adequate oral hygiene. More frequent visits to our office may be advised for those with serious dental problems.

Here are the 5 benefits of dental cleaning:

  1. It brightens your smile
    Your teeth can get stained by certain food and drinks. Dental cleaning removes built-up stains which results in perfectly polished teeth. There’s no better way to brighten up your smile than having your teeth cleaned by your dentist.
  2. Bad breath is reduced
    The best way to reduce bad breath is by maintaining clean teeth. Going beyond your daily brushing and flossing by getting a dental cleaning treatment gives you a healthier mouth and a fresher breath.
  3. Cavities are prevented
    Plaque buildup on your teeth causes tooth decay. They eat away your tooth enamel which leads to cavities. Together with daily brushing and flossing, dental cleaning prevents cavities.
  4. Tooth loss is prevented
    Your teeth and gum line loosen up when there’s plaque build-up on your teeth. This leads to gum disease, which is the major cause of tooth loss. Through good oral habits at home and dental cleanings, tooth loss is prevented.
  5. Your overall health is boosted
    There’s a correlation between your overall health and oral health. Keeping your teeth clean lowers your risk for certain diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Some medical conditions may also be detected by dentists during an oral exam.

Airflow is a dental hygiene method using a mixture of jet water, air and sodium bicarbonate to polish and clean teeth more thoroughly than only with general cleaning and polishing.

If you want brighter, whiter and healthier teeth Airflow is the solution! 

To get the best result, prior to Airflow a general hygiene treatment is required so the full session will take just over an hour!

The main aim is to help those who wish to have an amazing, clean smile, free from any food and drink stains, such as coffee, tea, red wine and nicotine.

The Airflow (combined with hygiene treatment) works with high pressure water, bicarbonate and air through a small nozzle and removes stains or trapped food between teeth as well as from the gum tissue. As a result plaque and discoloration is fully removed, teeth become whiter, gums remain thick and healthy and bad breath is tackled.

The Airflow treatment is painless, non-chemical, non-toxic and a completely non-invasive treatment.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment which involves bleaching your teeth to make them lighter. The best way to keep your smile healthy and bright is to look after your teeth and gums, but it’s not unusual to need a little help.

You might consider teeth whitening for different reasons. Your teeth can lose their whiteness with age but can also become stained by smoking or drinking lots of tea, coffee or red wine. ,Fortunately, our professional whitening treatments quickly and safely remove stains, without damaging your teeth. We’ve seen thousands of patients grow in confidence thanks to a brighter, whiter smile.

How should you care for your teeth after whitening treatment?

If you care for your teeth well after treatment, teeth whitening can last for some time. To maximise the effects of treatment, we recommend:

  • Brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste for two minutes, twice a day, to remove daily stains that build up on your teeth
  • Flossing every day
  • Regularly visiting the hygienist for a scale and polish
  • Stopping or at least cutting down on smoking
  • Cutting back on foods and drinks which can stain your teeth, such as coffee and red wine

Top-up kits are also available to maintain your new brighter smile. Your dentist will explain how to care for your smile once you’ve had the treatment.
