Air-N-Go cleaning and polishing

New Technology Alert! Explore the future of dental care with Air-N-Go polishing and cleaning! We’re delighted to offer our patients access to the latest Air-N-Go cleaning and polishing, delivering a superior deep clean for healthy, stain-free smiles.

Air-N-Go is an advanced, gentle cleaning system combining water, air, and powder, enabling the hygienist to remove plaque and stains gently and effectively. Air-N-Go works on the teeth and under the gum line, on exposed root surfaces, and on restorations efficiently and comfortably.

Your hygienist can choose from a range of powders that can be tailored to your treatment needs, from gently cleaning under the gum line to leaving you with a pearly-white finish.

Despite its superior cleaning capabilities, the system is gentle and painless, ensuring that the process is as comfortable as possible for our patients. The treatment is a quick, convenient, and great way to boost the appearance of your teeth.

Key facts about Air-N-Go

  1.  Effective stain removal: It’s particularly good at removing surface stains from coffee, tea, tobacco, and other sources

  2. Efficiency and comfort: The treatment causes less discomfort and sensitivity compared to traditional methods

  3. Gentler: The treatment uses fine particles in the air-polishing device which are less abrasive than normal scaling methods, making it gentler on the gum and teeth

  4. Reduced damage risk: Since the treatment is less abrasive than traditional cleaning, there is less chance of damaging tooth surfaces and restorations like veneers and crowns

  5. Plaque and biofilm removal: Biofilm, which is a stickly layer of bacteria on the teeth and gums, is removed by the high pressure steam

Keeping smiles healthy and fresh

Dental hygiene appointments are an essential component of maintaining good oral health. As well as giving your teeth a thorough professional clean (commonly known as ‘scale & polish’) to remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas, our hygienists will check for any potential dental problems.

They are also able to give guidance on carrying out the best daily, oral health routine at home, as well as advise on diet and other factors that can help prevent tooth decay.

There is now a much greater awareness of the links between oral health and the health of the rest of the body. Investigative studies have highlighted the importance of good dental hygiene in preventing serious conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.

In addition to our standard hygiene sessions, we also offer extended sessions that include Air-N-Go, a superb dual air polishing system that is highly-effective at removing staining from teeth.

Dental hygiene FAQs

What can I expect from a dental hygienist appointment?

During the cleaning, the hygienist will use special tools to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. They will also polish your teeth to remove any surface stains. This process helps to prevent cavities, gum disease and other oral health issues.

After cleaning, the hygienist will examine your teeth and gums for any signs of decay or disease. They may also take X-rays to get a more detailed look at your oral health. If any issues are found, they will discuss treatment options with you and make recommendations for follow-up care.

How do hygiene appointments help my oral health?

Regular hygienist visits are a great way to help prevent tooth decay and resulting complications. If plaque and tartar are allowed to develop they are likely to lead to cavities and potentially even tooth loss.

Hygiene appointments are also extremely beneficial for gum health. Plaque build-up can aggravate the gums causing inflammation and swelling (known as gingivitis).

If you notice inflammation of the gums, or signs such as bleeding when brushing your teeth, it is important to see your dentist as soon as possible. If gingivitis is left untreated it can develop into periodontal disease, which in turn can lead to further serious health conditions.

How can I best look after my oral health at home?

In addition to brushing teeth twice a day, flossing should also be included in all daily hygiene routines to remove food debris from between teeth. For larger gaps that can’t be reached with a toothbrush, interdental brushes can also be an effective way of cleaning the sides of teeth.

Your hygienist is available to give you guidance on choosing and using interdental brushes.

As well as heart disease and diabetes, there are strong links between poor oral health and the following serious conditions:

  • Respiratory infections
  • Dementia
  • Cancer
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Kidney disease
  • Pregnancy concerns
  • Prostate conditions
  • Infertility
What happens if the hygienist notices a potential problem?

If your hygienist spots any issues of concern during your appointment, they will refer you to see one of our dentists.

We have a large team of dental professionals that cover a wide range of specialist areas, so you can rest assured that you will get the best guidance and treatment where necessary.
