Hygiene & Active Maintenance
One of, if not the most important thing we do at Dental Society. Our hygiene department is the backbone of Dental Society and maintaining a healthy mouth and subsequently, body. Oral bacteria is found at sites of heart disease, stroke, pregnancy related issues, Alzheimer's and many more body diseases. Reducing oral bacteria, keeping you healthy and reducing further dental expenses is the name of the game!
The Dental Society
To us, it is far more important than "just a clean".
The hygiene appointment is one that is not taken lightly. It's not "just a clean" as many other practices may label it. At this appointment, bacterial calculus, tartar and most importantly biofilm is removed from your mouth, but that's not all. "Probing depths" among other variables are measured and recorded. This allows us to monitor the effectiveness of your active maintenance and adjust oral hygiene advice and recommendations as needed to ensure your mouth and subsequently body, are as healthy as it can be.
At Dental Society, we use Guided Biofilm Therapy and the latest hygiene technology, the EMS Airflow to ensure the best possible clean and bacterial maintenance.
The _Dental Society. Difference
FORMULATE AN INDIVIDUALISED
Visual and probe assessment and screen for evidence of health vs. disease and modifiable risk factors.
MAKE BIOFILM VISIBLE
Using a disclosing solution, make the once invisible biofilm, visible! The multi-colour will guide the biofilm removal and assess areas that are missed routinely at home.
RAISE AWARENESS & EDUCATION
One of the most important ideals at Dental Society, educating our patients to care for themselves. Emphasising prevention, modifiable risk factors and daily disease control.
BIOFILM REMOVAL WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY - EMS AIRFLOW
Using extremely fine, non-abrasive 14 micron (that's really small!) powder to remove biofilm above and below to gum (up to 4mm). With water heated to 40 degrees, its comfort on an entirely new level.
REMOVE BIOFILM IN >4MM POCKETS
Time to go deeper. More advanced gum disease will have hard to reach pockets over 4mm, the perioflow technology is made just for this whilst maintaining ultimate comfort.
ULTRASONIC & HAND INSTRUMENTS
Finish with hand instrumentation, if necessary to ensure a complete clean.
FINAL CHECK WITH ULTRA-FINE INSTRUMENTS
A final check for remaining biofilm and calculus is carried out to ensure it is fully removed. Accurately diagnose decay and other issues (now that the teeth are cleared of debris) and protect with fluoride.
HEALTHY MOUTH = HEALTHY BODY
Just like a car, regular servicing ensures peak performance and minimisation of issues. Same with your mouth, regular active maintenance using guided biofilm therapy is paramount in lowering your risk of systemic disease and maintaining optimal health.
