Periodontics, Scaling & Polishing and Air Flow

Periodontics, Scaling & Polishing and Air Flow


Gum treatment or periodontal disease is treated by periodontics which is the management and treatment of the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. Gum disease may be the result of a number of factors such as heredity, diet, lack of oral hygiene, smoking, environmental factors, or other habits. It may affect one tooth or a number of teeth. Gum disease may be the result of a gradual loss of support around the teeth over a long period, or it may occur suddenly. Everyone is susceptible to gum disease, and if not treated, the condition is progressive and may also affect your general health. We check the health of your gums at every dental examination visit.

Scaling & polishing

We recommend regular visits to our dental hygienist to have your teeth cleaned. This cleaning will remove stains and deposits, which build up on your teeth. Patients with sensitive teeth can have their teeth cleaned with a special local anaesthetic that wears off in 20 minutes or have their teeth cleaned with our new air abrasion cleaner.

Professional dental cleaning removes the problem deposits from your teeth that are not cleared by brushing. We recommend regular scaling and polishing at least twice a year.

Air Flow

We now offer airflow teeth cleaning which removes stains and discolouration from teeth painlessly. This is a separate service from scaling and polishing and is provided free of charge to members of our dental care programs.
