Healthy teeth and gums
When our teeth are healthy we barely give them a second thought, but as soon as we get a problem, it is hard to think about anything else. Having strong, healthy teeth and gums allows us to live our lives to the full. To be able to smile without embarrassment, eat with ease, and live without pain is wonderful. The best way to ensure your teeth stay this way is with regular visits to your dentist – and just as importantly, your hygienist.
Our hygienists, Bridget and Kate, are specially trained in looking after the health of your teeth and gums. Hygienists are educated alongside dentists for most of their training and are best placed to provide deep and thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums to prevent gum disease and decay. They also provide valuable oral health education and advice.
We also offer air polishing to help keep your teeth stain free and naturally white. Air polishing uses water, air and a fine, flavoured powder to gently and naturally remove plaque and stubborn stains from your teeth. This treatment painlessly rids teeth of the stains caused by tea, coffee, red wine and nicotine and will return them to their spotlessly clean, natural colour. It is also strongly recommended before tooth whitening procedures, as it will help improve the final result.
