Cosmetic Cleaning

Help control gum disease and remove staining, plaque and tartar from your teeth with cosmetic hygiene appointments

Cosmetic Cleaning

Help prevent gum disease and remove stains with gentle spray cleaning (Aquacare).

Comfortable and quick for even brighter and cleaner teeth

The goal of a hygiene visit, in addition to removing any stubborn or hard to reach deposits, is to show you how best to clean all areas of your teeth and gums.

As with most areas of health, prevention is always better than cure. At Newquay Dental Centre, we hope to achieve this by educating and empowering you to maintain your own dental and oral health.

Our dental therapists are specially trained to give you the deepest clean possible. They can help you obtain healthy gums and clean teeth. They will also teach you how to optimise your own cleaning skills to use at home.

If you suffer from periodontal disease which causes bone destruction and loose teeth, regular gentle, but thorough cleaning by the dental therapist, can slow the process down so that you stand a much better chance of keeping your teeth for life.

Unique cleaning methods for you

Our dental therapists are trained to use several different methods of cleaning your teeth:

Manual scalers are as effective as ultrasonic ones for clearing plaque and tartar from easy-to-reach areas of the teeth. In fact, the ease with which manuals scalers can be picked up and used as needed can make these tools better suited to removing minor accumulations of plaque.

This treatment uses ultrasonic vibrations and water to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth. However, where ultrasonic instruments really shine is in the clearing of deposits from deeper pockets. The tips of these tools are small, allowing them to easily reach areas where manual tools have more trouble. Furthermore, the coolant sprayed by ultrasonic scalers aids the dislodging of accumulated plaque and tartar. At the same time, ultrasonic scaling tools also introduce oxygen bubbles into these deeper pockets which disrupt the oxygen hating bacteria which thrive deep within.

AquaCare uses a mix of air, water, and powder to gently wash away staining and to brighten teeth. In cleaning mode, the AquaCare system is a valuable tool, delivering highly efficient stain removal and cleaning.

It is a non-invasive, painless cleaning system that removes food, coffee, tea, wine and tobacco stains for cleaner healthier teeth and a brighter smile and provides quick desensitisation upon application.

AquaCare suitability will need to be assessed by a clinician before the treatment commences. Other cleaning options will be discussed if it is not appropriate for you.
