Our Services:

We provide the following in a patient centred caring environment.

Examinations

After your examination and oral health assessment we discuss treatment options that would benefit and promote oral health

Preventive advice and all options for treatment, both NHS and Private options, with costs will be discussed during your appointment after your oral health has been assessed.

Additional examination and assessment services:

The Principal Dentist provides advanced services to assess the occlusion (bite) for advanced restorative dentistry and toothwear treatments using articulated study casts.This is available to help treatment planning, if justified, after your oral health assessment.

Specific brushes and other sundries may be advised during your examination to help plaque bacterial removal at difficult sites to improve oral health.

Hygiene Treatments

Hygiene treatments range from 15 minutes to 45 minutes and include a gum health assessment, complete gum and tooth scaling( removing bacteria and scale:cleaning), polishing and preventive advice.

Airflow bacterial plaque and stain removal treatment

The use of innovative Airflow Technology to remove staining and bacteria with either Airflow (above the gum or supragingival) and/or Perioflow(under the gum or subgingival) treatments

Minimally invasive Airflow Technology is used for superior stain and plaque removal with Airflow and Perioflow treatments.

This minimally invasive technique reduces the need for hand and sonic/ultrasonic instrumentation to remove staining. It is safe, effective and gentle to teeth, soft tissues and implants.

Airflow uses sodium bicarbonate and purified warm water spray for stain removal and cleansing of teeth from extrinsic staining. The airflow treatment removes the ‘biofilm’ bacteria and staining from teeth. 

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is an effective method of removal of the bacterial biofilm using EMS Air-Flow technology, which use low-abrasive powders in an air polishing device.

We are able to use Guided Biofilm Therapy which begins with the use of a disclosing agent to guide clinicians to remove all biofilm during professional tooth cleaning procedures. This ensures complete biofilm (bacteria) removal

Dentures can also be disinfected and cleaned with airflow polishing to remove stains and bacteria.

All Airflow and perioflow treatments include basic scaling and tooth polishing. Treatments range from 30 -45 Minutes

Perioflow gum cleaning

Perioflow cleaning under gum line and implant cleaning.


Perioflow technology disinfects under the gum line by removing bacteria
. Perioflow uses a gentle disinfectant spray to clean under gum disease pockets, gently removing bacteria. The perioflow service also includes scaling, polishing and hygiene treatment

Perioflow is also a gentle and effective way to clean implant surfaces, removing bacteria whilst preserving implant.


Complete Hygiene Treatment with airflow/perioflow technology

This is a combined service for gum disinfection and tooth stain removal, which includes a hygiene service (scaling and polishing) with airflow stain removal and perioflow gum disinfection, providing a full mouth disinfection service. This is available as a 45-60 minute treatment.

Airflow and perioflow treatments are a comfortable way to remove bacteria and clean bacteria and stains from enamel, restorations, implants, and deep periodontal pockets with periodontal nozzles.It is also ideal for crowded teeth, as the airflow polishing uses a combination of water, sodium bicarbonate powder, and air to remove the bacteria and stains without physically touching the tooth.

The clinical evidence that supports Airflow/Perioflow bacterial removal is available online here:

We provide a safe caring environment for children to have examinations and any necessary treatment.

We use the minimally invasive Atraumatic Restorative Technique (ART) to restore children’s teeth, which use fluoride releasing glass ionomer fillings to encourage remineralisation and healing of residual infected dental caries

We apply fluoride varnish to children’s teeth and discuss focused preventative advice.
