At Pearl Dental we have a motivated and enthusiastic hygienist who will care for your gum health and provide you with the treatment and information you need to improve your dental health.
On your first visit a full assessment will be carried out this will be a detailed assessment of your oral hygiene routine and a detailed examination of your gums including measurements of any pockets.
During your visit removal of plaque or tartar on the teeth or around the gum line will take place and any superficial staining removed. (although this is not as extensive as the air flow polishing)
The hygienist will also give you advice on the correct tooth brushing technique and any products she would recommend such as the correct toothbrush to use, mouthwash and any interdental cleaning aids such as floss.
The hygienist will also offer advice on diet, smoking and alcohol consumption.
Regular appointments with our hygienist alongside effective oral hygiene at home helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy. The hygienist will use scalers to remove hard tartar from the teeth which you cannot remove yourself by brushing alone. The hygienist will remove stains from the teeth but cannot change the natural shade of a tooth this can only be done with professional teeth whitening.
All patients require different levels of hygiene treatment and some may require more frequent visits with the hygienist. Each patient will be assessed individually on their dental health and a detailed plan put together including how many appointments are needed, and how regular they will need to attend for maintenance appointments. This will be reviewed at each visit.

Air flow Polishing
Air flow polishing is an advanced system used at Pearl Dental to remove tooth staining which can be caused by smoking, drinking tea, coffee and also red wine.
Air flow polishing is a great way to remove staining for special occasions or even for patients who are wanting to have professional whitening completed.
A high-powered air flow polishing treatment is used to remove stains on the surface and in-between the teeth. This is followed by a complementary high-gloss polish using a diamond polishing paste.
The treatment is provided in a 30 minute appointment and is completely pain free. Patients will leave the practice with a healthy and brighter smile.
