The Flash Pearl Polish is a standard hygiene treatment but also incorporates a stain removal process using the airflow machine. This machine works by using fine air-polishing powder that will tackle and remove the heavier staining that can be caused by smoking or the stains left by drinking coffee or tea. This treatment is also a particular favourite with patients who suffer with sensitive teeth because they usually find this air and water cleaning very gentle on their sensitive teeth.
At the end of your dental hygiene appointment, the hygienist will give you personalised advice about how best to care for your teeth and how to optimise your dental health at home. They will advise on how to use dental floss optimally, the right angle to hold your toothbrush and the best toothbrush to use.

In order to maintain a sound oral hygiene you must follow the tips below:
Poor dental hygiene may lead you to many serious health problems. People with poor dental hygiene are more likely to suffer from cavities, bad breath and tooth loss. These people are also prone to develop chronic health conditions like diabetes, heart diseases and even Alzheimer’s.
The main purpose of brushing is to remove the plaque buildup from your teeth surface. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste for brushing. Hold the brush at an angle of 45 degrees to your teeth surface and apply gentle pressure of the hand . Make sure to cover all three surfaces of the teeth while brushing. It is preferable to use an electric brush such as Braun Oral-B or Sonicare hold these brushes flat on to the tooth surfaces and slightly on the gums, use no pressure when using these brushes as they do most of the work for you. Brush for about 2 minutes every time. Clean the tongue as well at the same time. It is actually best to spit out the toothpaste and not to rinse the mouth with water after brushing is over.
Under normal circumstances you should visit a dental hygienist once in every six months. People, who suffer from chronic oral health issues must visit their hygienist more often – as they’ve been advised.
Your appointment with a dental hygienist will be uniquely tailored to meet your needs and concerns. Considering the condition of your oral health, the hygienist will emphasise on a number of aspects ranging from assessing your gum health, professional scaling and polishing of the teeth, dietary advice to bad breath issues and much more.
