You may be used to visiting us regularly to see the dentist, but are you also taking the opportunity to help keep your gums and teeth in optimum health by visiting the hygienist?
Our hygienists work closely with the dentist to carry out regular oral maintenance, including checks for gum disease and ‘scale and polish’ to remove hardened tartar from your teeth and gum line. Without these checks and maintenance, the risk of gum disease and decay increases considerably as harmful bacteria in your mouth multiply and start to damage your teeth and gums.
If you don’t look after your mouth properly and gum disease starts, then more problems lie ahead. As gum disease progresses, the bone which holds the teeth in place starts to degrade, to the point where your teeth can fall out! When caught and treated early, gum disease can be reversed, so it really does pay to take good care of your oral health at home together with regular checks from your dentist and maintenance by the hygienist.
Bad breath is a real turn off but keeping your mouth healthy will really help to keep it at bay. This includes having the tartar removed from your teeth and gum-line with regular scale and polish treatments along with checks for signs of gum disease.
As part of the scale and polish with the hygienist, you will also receive a polish to help remove surface staining, leaving you with a more confident smile and a fresher mouth!
Here at Acton Vale Dentists, we are proud to offer the latest treatment for removing surface stains from your teeth. This revolutionary treatment is a huge step up from the polish we do as the final step of a regular hygiene treatment and the results really speak for themselves:
AirFlow uses high pressure air containing fine particles which gently removes staining from the surface of the teeth quickly and very effectively. It is a completely safe and pain-free treatment which can make a huge improvement to your smile in just a single session with us!
Your teeth will feel fantastically smooth and fresh after AirFlow polishing and with a noticeable difference in their brightness too.
