We all know how important it is to keep our teeth clean, to avoid bad breath, tooth discolouration and more serious problems such as decay. However, even if we take good care of our teeth, cosmetic problems can occur, particularly due to tea, coffee, wine, or other food or drink habits that can particularly stain teeth. Smoking is of course another habit which can easily lead to discoloured teeth. For this reason, a visit to the dental hygienist can be helpful for many people.
Even if there are no serious cosmetic or health problems with teeth, visiting the hygienist can be a good idea to ensure that your teeth are as clean and healthy as can be – the hygienist can clean parts of your mouth that can’t be reached at home brushing your teeth, and a professional hygienist can clean far more thoroughly. Here at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Hounslow we take our patients oral health very seriously.
What treatments are available?
Air abrasion is an increasingly popular technique which helps to clean teeth and remove staining. The process works by spraying very fine particles of silica or aluminium oxide at the teeth using compressed air, and this can help to thoroughly clean teeth. The decaying particles which are removed from your teeth are then taken out of your mouth by suction. This can also ‘blow away’ surface staining on the teeth, and help your teeth to feel smoother and cleaner in your mouth.
Sparkle Dental Boutique also provides a special treatment to help combat bad breath, by using a combination of hygiene techniques and specially-made products. Another available treatment, called scaling and root planing, helps to remove build-up of plaque and tartar from the area around where the gum meets the tooth, at the tooth’s root. Cleaning this area, which is difficult to reach at home with a toothbrush, can help to stave off gum disease.
