About Our Dental Hygienist

Frequent visits to our dedicated dental hygienist at Dentistry and More place you in the best position for early detection of any oral health issues before they manifest symptoms or require extensive treatment.
 
Our dental hygienist is highly trained to provide a comprehensive cleaning of your teeth and gums. Even the most advanced electric toothbrush cannot reach all the nooks and crannies in your mouth, but a hygienist can access these hard-to-reach areas, offering a professional deep clean.
 

DENTAL HYGIENE

What to Expect from a Dental Hygienist

  • A thorough scale and polish procedure effectively remove harmful plaque and deposits of tartar. These deposits, if left untreated, can lead to periodontal (gum) disease. By incorporating hygienist visits into your regular dental care routine, you can stay ahead of the curve and avoid becoming one of the 19 out of 20 individuals who may suffer from gum disease during their lifetime.
  •  
  • After a meticulous cleaning and an analysis of your overall gum health, your dental hygienist will provide a final touch by giving your teeth a shine and polish using a gentle, quiet air polisher, which effectively eliminates superficial stains. In cases where decay is present, your hygienist may apply fluoride or an antibacterial gel.
  •  
  • In addition to the comprehensive scale and polish, your dental hygienist will conduct a thorough assessment of your overall oral health. If they identify any issues that require further attention, they will promptly refer you to your dentist for further treatment, making a visit to the hygienist an invaluable component of your oral health care routine.

AirFlow Stain Removal Procedure

AirFlow stain removal employs state-of-the-art technology, featuring compressed air, sodium bicarbonate or glycine powder, and a gentle, pressurized water jet stream. This combination effectively and efficiently removes stains and plaque from the tooth’s surface.
 
The procedure is designed to address both superficial and subgingival (below the gumline) plaque and stains, providing comprehensive prophylaxis.

Common Stains Removed

The AirFlow stain removal procedure is particularly effective at eliminating stains caused by substances such as tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, and more. These stains often accumulate on the teeth’s surface over time. Following this treatment, patients experience an immediate transformation, with teeth appearing noticeably brighter and fresher.
 

The health of your teeth is invaluable, and prevention is better than treatment further down the line. We can spot any signs of anything rumbling unnoticed and work with you to keep your smile fresh and bright, now and in the future.

Before and After AirFlow

AirFlow teeth cleaning is highly efficient in addressing stains resulting from the consumption of coffee, tea, tobacco, and alcohol in a single session. It can also effectively remove staining caused by certain medications, as well as plaque and debris buildup. 
 
Patients typically leave the procedure with a brighter, healthier, and more radiant smile. 
 
However, it’s essential to note that AirFlow stain removal is not a teeth whitening treatment and may not be as effective at removing stains caused by congenital dental issues or fluorosis.
