Air polishing

What is air polishing?

Air polishing is a minimally invasive technique which uses a mixture of compressed air, water and fine powder to remove unsightly staining and harmful plaque from the teeth. Air polishing can also be used to gently clean underneath the gum line and around orthodontic wires/brackets, implants, crowns, bridges and conventional fillings.

LDC Officials’ day

Galer attended the LDC Officials’ day in London last week. It was a very interesting meeting and it will be good to feedback the information learned to local dentists at the next meeting.

Christmas cleaning…

Enjoy the festive run up to Christmas and remember to clean your teeth, twice a day for two minutes, over the festive period.

Sip all day = get decay

Water and milk are the only safe drinks.

Please try to limit or if possible avoid carbonated drinks, flavoured waters, alcohol, smoothies, juices, fruit teas and squash as these are closely linked with erosion due to their high acidity.

When you drink an acidic drink the mouth remains acidic for at least 40 minutes and during this period the teeth are effectively dissolved and are more prone to decay.
