Our dental hygiene process

Oral Health Assessment

Our hygienists conduct a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums, and mouth and offer valuable guidance on maintaining optimal oral hygiene.

Professional-grade cleaning

Using advanced tools, we remove stubborn stains, plaque, and tartar and then scale and polish your teeth to leave them clean and shiny.

Advanced Treatments​

Options like air polishing and FLASH pearl treatment are available to restore whiteness. A follow-up visit may be recommended.

Don’t hide away, we’re here to help

Bleeding gums, often caused by plaque buildup, can lead to more serious issues such as periodontal disease if left untreated. Periodontal disease not only affects oral health but has also been linked to increased risks of coronary artery disease, stroke, and dementia. That’s why we emphasise the significance of attending regular oral hygiene appointments to prevent and address these issues promptly. Don’t be embarrassed by your lack of dental hygiene knowledge; we’ll provide you with a personalised care plan that fits your lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you clean stained teeth?

Your dental hygienist at Thames can remove stubborn staining using ultrasonic cleaning equipment and professional stain-removing paste, providing significant improvements in the appearance of your teeth.

Why are my teeth turning brown in between?

Brown discoloration between teeth is often caused by a buildup of staining from foods and drinks such as tea, coffee, and red wine. Regular professional cleaning and polishing by your hygienist can effectively remove these stains.

Why are my teeth yellow when I brush them every day?

Yellowing of the teeth can occur due to surface staining or exposed internal tooth structure. Brushing harder may exacerbate the issue by wearing away tooth enamel. Consult your dentist to identify the cause and determine the appropriate treatment.

Will the treatment hurt?

Scaling and polishing procedures are typically pain-free. If you experience discomfort, your hygienist can provide anaesthesia or use topical numbing creams to ensure your comfort during the treatment.

Can a hygienist help prevent dental disease?

Yes, dental hygienists are trained to remove tartar deposits and provide guidance on preventive measures such as proper oral hygiene practices and dietary recommendations to reduce the risk of dental diseases.

What help is available for children?

Children can benefit from professional teeth cleaning, fluoride applications, and sealants to protect their teeth from decay. Dental hygienists also offer education and support to encourage healthy oral habits from a young age.
