A dental hygiene appointment is a great way to get that deep down, fresh and clean feeling and to give you confidence in your oral health.

Your dentist might suggest that you should see a hygienist at regular intervals to help you manage your oral health, or you might just choose to book an appointment whenever suits you to remove stains and freshen up your smile.

The benefits of a hygiene appointment

Dental hygienists are the experts in managing the health of your gums. They can remove the build-up of hardened plaque (tartar) on your teeth that is the home to bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease.

This is important because, if left untreated, gum disease can have an impact on your overall health. The bacteria irritate the gums, causing them to pull away from the teeth. Eventually bacteria can go beyond the gumline affecting the tissues that hold the teeth in place, causing them to become wobbly and fall out. If you have gum disease, it may even increase the risk of other health complications such as stroke, diabetes and heart disease.

Even in healthy individuals, a hygiene appointment is a good idea if you want a little more confidence in your smile. Your hygienist can remove staining caused by drinks such as tea and coffee, helping you achieve a brighter smile, plus they will advise on a tailored oral health routine at home that will help your gums stay healthy.

DENTAL AIRFLOW

SO MUCH MORE THAN A SCALE AND POLISH

What is Airflow Polishing?

Airflow is a powerful dental hygiene treatment that dramatically cleans and polishes your teeth using a combination of jet water, air, and sodium bicarbonate.

How does Airflow polishing work?

Airflow’s nozzle with shoot out a high pressured and concentrated blast of water, air, and bicarbonate (usually a lemon flavour) at the surfaces of your teeth. Airflow is very effective at cleaning teeth and will also clean the hard to reach places (nooks and cranny’s), leaving you feeling very fresh.

The combination of the air, water, and bicarbonate has been proven to be effective at tackling tough stains and plaque, and you will be able to leave with much cleaner teeth than a normal hygiene visit.

What are the benefits of AirFlow ?

Airflow has plenty of benefits in comparison to a normal scale and polish.

First and foremost, it is much more effective at cleaning.

The jet is not only capable of polishing the surfaces of your teeth and removing plaque build-up, it can also reach up to 5mm into periodontal pockets for more efficient cleaning.

Using Airflow is also much quicker than regular methods of stain and plaque removal.

Airflow can actually help reduce the sensitivity of your teeth.This is due to the bicarbonate in the jet, which can fill any exposed dentine tubules and help re-mineralize teeth.

5 Reasons To Book Your Airflow Polishing

1. Effective cleaning: removes stains and plaque by shooting a high pressured blast of water, bicarbonate and air through its small nozzle.

2. Patient’s comfort: no more scraping tools digging into your gums, with this new cleaning method the treatment is painless, fast and above all non-invasive.

3. For sensitive teeth: the absence of direct contact, heat and vibration makes this treatment ideal for those patients who have sensitive teeth.

4. Fast cleaning: research has shown that the Airflow polishing method is three times faster than any traditional method and it also causes less damage to the teeth.

5. Pre-orthodontic treatment: the Airflow method is ideal to use before any orthodontic treatment at Neem Dental Clinic, as it cleans the tooth surfaces removing nearly 100 percent of bacteria and endotoxins making your teeth ready for any bonding procedure.

DEEP TEETH CLEANING VS ROUTINE CLEANING

Do I need a deep teeth cleaning?

One of the most common scenarios we see are patients who haven’t been to the dentist in a while and are told they need a deep teeth cleaning. They don’t have any pain, which makes them skeptical of this diagnosis given the cost of deep cleaning teeth, and come to me for a second opinion.

Deep teeth cleanings are often misdiagnosed when a routine teeth cleaning is really all that is needed for the patient. Unfortunately, some dental clinics take a more aggressive approach when prescribing this treatment. To ease the patients’ mind, I tell them there are several signs deep cleaning treatment is needed. All of which we can show them during the appointment.

Before having that conversation, I think it’s important to understand the purpose of deep cleaning teeth.

What is deep cleaning teeth?

Deep cleaning teeth – also known as scaling and root planning, or non-surgical periodontal therapy – is the process of removing tartar that forms beneath the gum line to stop the progression of gum disease.

If left untreated, the accumulation of tartar (hardened plaque) can result in inflamed gums that break the seal between the tooth and healthy gum tissue. Thus, allowing the disease to migrate down the root and cause more inflammation. This inflammation is the first sign of gum disease – it’s called gingivitis.

At this stage, gum disease is reversible. However, it must be treated, which is where a deep teeth cleaning comes in. If you put off deep cleaning teeth for too long, the disease will progress and you will begin to lose bone around your teeth, eventually causing tooth loss. Once the disease progresses to this point (periodontitis), it is irreversible.

What’s the difference between deep cleaning teeth and a routine teeth cleaning?

A routine teeth cleaning is what most people experience when they visit the dentist clinic. It is very unlikely that someone who visits the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning will need a deep cleaning. Rather, it’s typically necessary when someone hasn’t been to the dentist for a teeth cleaning for many years or does not practice proper hygiene on a daily basis. There are many habits and behaviors that lead to rapid tartar buildup, and eventually gum disease, when tartar is ignored: sipping on sugary drinks throughout the day, forgetting to brush teeth and gums regularly, never flossing your teeth, and more.

Signs you need a deep teeth cleaning

Should you need a deep cleaning, it’s important that you get one, and soon. There are several telltale signs that you can look for to confirm this diagnosis – both at home and with your dentist. Signs you can look for at home include:

  1. Bleeding gums when you brush or floss Bleeding or swollen gums are one of the first signs of gum disease. This is your body’s way of trying to get rid of the disease, and is caused by a buildup of plaque along the gum line. You may also have sore gums, or gums that look red and puffy.
  2. Bad breathConsistently bad breath – not just in the mornings or after a meal – is another sign that you may need a deep cleaning. This is caused by the bacteria in your mouth that is actively destroying your bone.

Another sign to look for is tartar (or dental calculus) around the bottom front teeth. If you notice this, or have bad breath and/or bleeding gums, it’s best to make a dentist appointment to have this checked out. During your appointment, the dentist will be able to confirm your diagnosis. Signs they look for – which they will be able to show you – include:

  1. Periodontal pockets of 4mm or greaterIf you think back to your last dentist appointment, you may recall the hygienist spouting out a list of numbers. These are likely the measurements of your periodontal pockets, or the vertical space between the tooth and gum. Healthy gums have pockets that measure no more than 3 mm. A deep cleaning is needed when you have one or more pocket per quadrant that are 4mm or greater. At 5mm, the patient will be diagnosed with periodontitis, and at 6mm or 7mm with advanced periodontitis.
  2. Radiographic bone lossThe combination of periodontal pockets and tartar buildup will eventually begin to affect the bone and change its structure. The bone will become scalloped and uneven and bone volume will decrease. If you need a deep teeth cleaning, you will have bone loss that is visible on an x-ray. Your dentist will be able to show you on the x-ray where your bone is, and where it should be. At this point, the damage is irreversible. But it’s important to stop it before it gets worse.

If you have both periodontal pockets and bone loss, you need a deep cleaning. However, you may not have bad breath or gum bleeding. Not all symptoms are required for a definitive diagnosis. The two most important signs to look for are those that your dentist will look for.

If in doubt, get a second opinion and ask the dentist to show you the periodontal pockets and bone loss. This will be very easy for them to do and give you peace of mind knowing that your diagnosis is accurate.

If you’re unsure of whether or not you need a deep teeth cleaning, schedule an appointment with our dentist in Harrow, Middlesex. We’ll be happy to confirm your diagnosis and deep clean your teeth.

WHY REGULAR DENTAL CHECK UPS ARE SO IMPORTANT FOR HEALTHY TEETH

Are you amongst those individuals who have a busy life and fail to pay enough attention to your dental health? Brushing and flossing will keep your teeth clean and lessen the risks associated with oral infections and diseases. However, it is suggested to go for routine oral checkups and improve your oral health. Even if your mouth is clean and fresh, chances are you might not be able to spot out the cavities between the teeth. It is advised to see your private dentist in Harrow at least twice a year and have good oral health. 

PREVENT STAINED TEETH AND GUM DISEASE

Seeing your dentist for dental check-ups regularly will help to prevent different gum diseases. If plaque accumulates in a significant amount, it may lead to inflammation and gum irritation. It helps to whiten teeth so that you can restore your brighter and whiter smile. If you consume tobacco or are addicted to smoking, you may develop stains on the teeth that affect your oral health and personality. However, you should see a dentist in order to get rid of stains.

ENHANCE THE OVERALL LIFE OF TEETH

Regular dental health check-up is extremely important to enhance the life of teeth. Obviously, you do not want to lose teeth and get them replaced with artificial ones. This may occur due to bad dental health and cleaning habits that make the teeth become loose and soft. You may talk to your dentist for strong and properly positioned teeth. Dentists may prescribe vitamins that should be consumed if your teeth require more nutrition. 

IMPROVE YOUR DENTAL HEALTH AND HYGIENE

Dental hygiene is linked with your overall health condition and so, it is important to take proper care of your oral health and prevent diseases like heart disease and cancer. Though the exact link between heart disease and improper dental health is not clear, it is important to maintain good dental health and hygiene in order to decrease the risk of poor blood flow and strokes.

CLEAN MOUTH AND FRESH BREATH

Regular dental health check-ups will help you to maintain a clean mouth and fresh breath. This is possible when you brush and floss daily and it can be achieved with clean and healthy teeth and gums. It is advised to use a soft bristled tooth-brush to get rid of small food particles struck in between the teeth and ensure your gums are not damaged.

PREVENT DIFFERENT HEALTH PROBLEMS

When you visit your dentist for routine dental checkups, it gives him the chance to make out and diagnose probable health issues that might occur in future. He may suggest a suitable treatment that would help you to overcome your dental problems. Besides, he will also provide valuable tips and advice for improved your dental and overall health.

You can book your appointment at NEEM DENTAL CLINIC for regular dental check-up and serious oral problems that require immediate treatment. By taking proper care of your dental health, you can prevent various diseases and lead a better life.

What is Air-Flow?

Air-Flow is a professional stain removal system that tackles stubborn stains, which are difficult to remove with normal teeth whitening methods.

Is it right for me?

Air-Flow treatment is for anyone looking for a brighter, whiter smile. From light staining to more severe stains; Air-Flow significantly improves tooth brightness, giving you a noticeably, sparkling, healthy mouth, in an instant.

How does it work?

Using a special powder, air, and a gentle jet stream of water; Air-Flow gently and painlessly removes surface stains caused by tobacco, food and drink. In just one appointment, you will immediately see and feel the difference.

What are the causes of teeth staining?

Typically, teeth stains affect the surface of the teeth and once severe, cannot always be removed with brushing alone. These surface stains can be caused by smoking, coffee, tea, red wine and eating foods that contain colourants. Air-Flow removes surface stains easily, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile.  Sometimes, discolouration occurs on a deeper level. This can result from the use of certain medications, or a genetic susceptibility to darker teeth. A combination of teeth whitening and Air-Flow treatment provides dramatic results; resulting in a smile which can be several shades lighter.

How does sensitivity happen? Can tooth sensitivity be treated or avoided?

How does sensitivity happen?

There are several causes for sensitivity, since dentine can be exposed in a number of ways.

  • You may have a broken or cracked tooth, or you may have a hole as a result of tooth decay which now needs a filling.
  • Over-brushing your teeth (too hard or for too long) can wear down your tooth enamel.
  • Acidic food and drink can erode your enamel.
  • Receding gums can slowly expose the root of your tooth, which doesn’t have an enamel layer. This can occur naturally or through gum disease, including gingivitis.
  • Poor-quality cosmetic teeth whitening treatments can cause damage to your enamel.
  • If you grind your teeth, you can wear away your enamel or even the whole tooth.

Can tooth sensitivity be treated or avoided?

  • Make sure you have regular check-ups with your dentist and see your hygienist whenever you’re referred.
  • Follow your dentist’s or hygienist’s advice for looking after your teeth at home.
  • Visit your dentist as soon as you suspect you may have a problem such as a cavity, a cracked tooth or a change in your gums. Treatment can stop things getting worse.
  • Your dentist might recommend a fluoride gel, rinse or varnish. These can gradually build up the protective layer of your teeth.
  • Avoid sugary, fizzy and acidic foods and drinks.
  • Don’t brush your teeth from side to side – instead, use small, circular motions.
  • Switch to a softer toothbrush and replace it as soon as it shows signs of wear.
  • Use a desensitising toothpaste, ideally one with fluoride in (but take your dentist’s advice, because too much fluoride can be bad for you).
