What is Dental Airflow Polishing?

Dental AirFlow polishing is modern dental hygiene technique used to remove stains, plaque, and soft deposits from the surfaces of teeth. It employs a combination of compressed air, water, and a specially formulated powder (mixture of sodium bicarbonate) to effectively but gently break down and remove surface deposits

AirFlow is like a ‘Jet Wash’ For Your Teeth – Comprehensive Oral Hygiene Therapy

Plaque and Biofilm Removal:

What is Dental Teeth Scaling?

Teeth scaling is a technique used by dentists and hygienists to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from teeth. Teeth scaling can be carried out manually or using a more modern ultrasonic scaling technique, which involves using a handheld device that emits high-frequency vibrations and water. The hygienist uses the ultrasonic scaler to gently remove deposits from the tooth surfaces and below the gumline. The vibrations from the scaler create tiny bubbles that break down hard deposits, while the water helps flush away debris.

Benefits of ultrasonic teeth scaling include more efficient and precise plaque and tartar removal compared to manual dental scaling. It is a comfortable and minimally invasive procedure that can be done quickly. The ultrasonic scaler can reach challenging areas for a thorough dental clean. Additionally, it has antimicrobial properties, reducing harmful bacteria and improving gum health.

Ultrasonic dental cleaning is typically carried out alongside other preventive procedures, including dental check-ups / examination. The dentist or hygienist will assess if it’s suitable based on your oral health needs.

Why is there different times for dental hygiene treatments?

Dental hygienist treatments can vary in duration, typically ranging from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the individual’s oral health needs and the specific procedures involved.

The allocated time for these treatments is determined based on factors such as the presence of gum disease, the amount of plaque and tartar buildup, and the overall condition of the patient’s oral hygiene.

  • 30 minutes: For patients with mild to moderate oral health issues, a 30-minute appointment may be sufficient to perform a thorough dental cleaning and address any immediate oral concerns.
  • 45 minutes: Individuals requiring more extensive dental cleaning, such as those with advanced gum disease or a higher level of plaque and tartar accumulation, may benefit from a longer 45-minute session to ensure a more comprehensive and detailed treatment.

The appointment duration for a dental hygienist in Bromley is tailored to each patient’s unique oral health requirements, ensuring optimal care and effective management of their dental hygiene needs.

Dental Hygiene FAQ

How often should I have a dental hygienist appointment?

It is generally recommended to visit the the hygienist every 6 months for professional teeth cleaning. However, we will advise you on the frequency based on your individual oral health needs, as some patients may require more frequent cleanings due to conditions like gum disease or a history of dental issues.

What can I do at home to maintain good dental hygiene?

Maintaining good dental hygiene at home involves brushing your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily to remove plaque between teeth, and using mouthwash as recommended. Additionally, following a balanced diet and limiting sugary snacks and drinks can help maintain oral health.

How can I prevent gum disease?

Preventing gum disease involves maintaining proper oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing and flossing, to remove plaque and bacteria. Additionally, visiting the dentist for professional cleaning, avoiding tobacco use, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle contributes to gum disease prevention.

Are there any specific oral hygiene recommendations for children?

Children should start practicing good oral hygiene habits early on. Parents should brush their child’s teeth with a child-sized toothbrush and a smear of fluoride toothpaste until the child can effectively brush on their own. Regular dental visits for check-ups and cleanings are also crucial for monitoring oral health and addressing any concerns.

What should I do if I have bad breath?

Bad breath (halitosis), can be caused by various factors, such as poor oral hygiene, gum disease, dry mouth, or certain foods. Maintaining good oral hygiene, including brushing your tongue, using mouthwash, and staying hydrated, can help alleviate bad breath. If the problem persists, it’s recommended to visit the dentist for an evaluation.

I have sensitive teeth, what can I do?

If you have sensitive teeth, it’s important to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a desensitizing toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth. Avoiding extremely hot or cold foods and drinks, as well as acidic foods, can also help minimise discomfort. Our dentists can also provide additional guidance and treatment options for managing sensitivity.
