Hygiene therapist sessions
Regular oral hygiene sessions are necessary to maintain your oral health. Routine teeth cleaning with scale and polish involves the removal of the plaque and hardened deposits (tartar). Keeping your teeth cleaned in a regular basis is the best way to prevent cavities (decay) and gum disease.
Our experienced Dental Therapist Danielle Firth, will assess your oral hygiene, and undertake the appropriate treatment required. They will help you to achieve a good and stable oral hygiene, in order to prevent any disease in the future.
Dental cleaning involve the removal of plaque and tartar (harden deposits) of your teeth. In first place, our Dental Therapist assess the quantity of plaque retained, and will advise you in how to prevent it.
At Beighton Dental Care we use the latest specialised instruments to gentle remove the plaque and tartar deposits without harming your teeth.
- Ultrasonic scaler: it uses vibration to remove the plaque and tartar. It also sprays a cooling water to wash away the debris.
- Fine hand tool (hand scaler): used to remove smaller deposits and smooth the roots surfaces putting slight pressure on the teeth.
Polishing of the surfaces of your teeth is done after your scaling is performed. A slow hand piece and a rubber cup is used with prophylactic paste. This paste is gritty and polishes the surfaces removing the staining of your teeth and leaving them smooth and shiny.
