Ultrasonic cleanings are a gentle way to remove all the bacteria around the teeth to help maintain a healthy mouth and a healthy body. We will perform a thorough dental scale and clean to remove any plaque or tartar build-up and stainings off your teeth and ensure gum health. Once completed, your teeth will feel clean and smooth. If it’s been a while since your last scale and clean please do not hesitate to book an appointment.
Air polishing delivers a controlled stream of fine powder particles to the tooth surface through water spray and compressed air. It removes discolouration from coloured foods and drinks, tobacco stains, and bacterial plaque more effectively compared to a rotating brush which results in preventing tooth decay, periodontitis and gingivitis. This modern method is highly sought after for a more effective treatment which is both harmless and comfortable for the patient.
Fluoride varnish is highly effective at reducing tooth decay by providing teeth extra protection when used in addition to regular brushing. Your child should be offered fluoride varnish application at least twice yearly from the age of two to ensure maximum benefit. Fluoride varnish is also beneficial to adult patients who have a history of frequent cavities, deep pits and grooves in their teeth, dry mouth conditions, and gum recession and gum disease.
Fissure sealants form a protective layer that keeps food and bacteria from getting stuck in the grooves in teeth, saving you from getting cavities. Resin-based fissure sealants should be applied to the permanent molars of all children as early after eruption as possible as it is a common site for tooth decay. The beauty of a fissure sealant is it allows us to clean the groove out without drilling through the enamel - the fissure sealant and the tooth stay strong.
