Dental Hygiene, For Extraordinarily Clean Teeth….

Comprehensive hygiene delivered by the best hygienists in London

We understand that hygiene appointments can be daunting. Our friendly hygienists work with you to help remove plaque, tartar and dental stains which are hard to clean at home with your daily brushing and flossing. The team of dental hygienists at American Smile will help you get a professional teeth clean in no time and keep your mouth and gums healthy.

Dental hygiene sessions form a crucial part of your dental visits. These should be spaced out throughout the year to help you maintain good oral health. Our dental hygienists tailor each session and, between visits, they ask that you keep an eye on any changes such as bleeding gums. These visits may also accompany any other dental treatment you are having. We highly recommend that during any cosmetic dentistry, brace work and during pregnancy, you keep your hygiene visits as regular as quarterly.

It is essential that you continue taking care of your gums at home through good daily oral hygiene habits, as this is the most important aspect to help maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. That’s why we create personalised oral care plans for every patient we see.

Teeth hygiene with Guided Biofilm technology is ideal for patients who smoke, those who have bleeding gums, “bad breath” or those who require a more in-depth clean.

Cost of the treatment: £155

Questions & Answers

What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is a new Swiss innovation that has allowed dental hygienists to enhance patient experience. Our teeth are covered in a sticky and colourless film made up of bacteria, known as biofilm. If this biofilm is not removed, it can build up around the area between the teeth and gums, resulting in gum disease (the first sign of which is bleeding gums). The bacteria in biofilm can also break down enamel when it comes in contact with sugary foods and drinks, ultimately causing tooth decay. GBT uses AirFlow technology to remove all bacteria (biofilm) in the mouth that contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

Smoking can slow down the blood flow to your gums and teeth and therefore slow down any healing. Most people who smoke may not be aware of a problem until they see their dentist or hygienist, although you are most likely to notice the yellowing of the teeth. It is recommended that you see a hygienist at least once every three months to make sure that your teeth are better protected.

During pregnancy there is an increase in hormone levels, which can lead to pregnancy gingivitis. It is advised that you visit more frequently during this time to help keep on top of your gum health.

It is recommended that you visit a dental hygienist before, during and straight after you finish your orthodontic treatment. A dental hygienist will show you correct techniques for brushing and cleaning in-between the teeth and around the braces. They will ensure any plaque or calculus is removed from the teeth and your gums are in a healthy condition.

AirFlow polish is a jet of compressed air, water and an abrasive agent that removes stains effectively and quickly. Sodium bicarbonate is often used as the abrasive agent in AirFlow polishing, but glycine (a naturally-occurring amino acid) is less abrasive, just as effective and sometimes used. Indications for use of an AirFlow polisher include extrinsic stain removal, cleaning around orthodontic appliances and periodontal pockets. Contraindications for AirFlow polish are typically individuals with upper respiratory disease, compromised immune systems, polishing powder ingredient allergies or sodium-restricted diets.
