Regular visits to a hygienist can help prevent gum disease which if left undiagnosed/treated can cause gum recession, bone loss from around the teeth and even the loss of teeth.
The role of a dental hygienist is to professionally clean your teeth so that your teeth are free of tartar, your gums are healthy and your breath is fresh. They also play a key role in the prevention, treatment and maintenance of periodontal disease.
They are the best placed dental care professional to help advise you on a home oral hygiene regime that will aid you to look after your teeth effectively. They can identify problem areas, suggest how to improve them, review and ensure these areas improve. They can educate you on the range of interdental cleaning devices available and which ones you should be using.
At Rendlesham Dental Practice we also have dental hygiene therapists. These are dental care professionals who do all of the above but who can also perform permanent dental fillings.
Both our hygienists and dental therapists can be seen through direct access. This means even if you are not registered with us you can see them directly on a private basis without having seen a dentist first. Perfect for that special occasion where you want your teeth clean and bright but don’t need to see a dentist.
We also offer at the practice EMS air-flow leading private teeth cleaning system, recognised for its ability to significantly improve tooth brightness; eliminating stains that are difficult to remove with conventional whitening methods.
An innovative treatment, Air-Flow uses compressed air, water and bicarbonate particles, to gently remove surface stains caused by tobacco, food and drink.
A beautiful smile can light up the room. Help your smile be as bright as it can be with Air-Flow oral cleansing therapy.

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.
