At SmilePlus, we provide all kinds of treatments to repair your teeth and enhance the beauty of your smile, but top of our to-do list is preventive care. Our hygienists, Elaine, Assunta and Linda, are invaluable weapons in our preventive armoury, leading the fight against gum (periodontal) disease and tooth decay with their cleaning techniques and dental hygiene advice.
It’s important to stay on top of your oral hygiene to avoid developing gum disease and decay. That’s where our helpful hygienists come in – offering services that range from scaling and polishing to comprehensive periodontal treatments for more advanced gum disease.
Our hygienists’ top treatment is scaling and polishing, which gives your teeth a thorough freshen up and gets rid of the potentially destructive debris that can lead to gum irritation. They will also check your gums for signs of disease and, if they do find any problems, they can provide appropriate treatment such as root surface cleaning – a very deep clean under the gums to remove bacteria and tartar from the roots of your teeth. And, don’t worry if you need more involved treatment to halt the progress of gum disease, a local anaesthetic or numbing dental gel will ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
They can also make your teeth look better with the highly effective Airflow stain removal system, which washes away stubborn stains such as those caused by coffee, tea and red wine. It uses a pressurised jet of water, air and bicarbonate particles to gently eliminate surface staining and reveal fresher, whiter teeth.
On top of all this clever cleaning, they also give individually tailored oral hygiene instruction on cleaning aids such as floss, interdental brushes and mouthwashes, so you’re well equipped to keep teeth clean at home. And it doesn’t stop there, they give advice on dental implant and orthodontic care, teeth sensitivity and gum recession, and can also strengthen teeth with fluoride varnishes. So see our hygienists regularly (every 3, 4 or 6 months) to prevent periodontal disease and maintain healthier, happier teeth.
To treat your teeth to a deep clean (and so much more!), Give us a call on 0131 334 1581 or book online for your free initial consultation. And remember you can now see a hygienist for a scale and polish without seeing a dentist first, so book an appointment today!
