Your journey to healthier teeth and gums

Meet with our on-site dental hygienist

Your journey will start with an initial visit to our dental hygienist (also called a dental therapist). The hygienist will examine your gums for signs of infection and make oral hygiene recommendations to help you improve the health of your teeth and gums. Next, you will be provided with a gum care treatment plan that includes a recommended schedule for cleaning your teeth and maintaining your gum health.

Have a professional dental cleaning

If your gums are in good shape, you may be able to have a complete cleaning on the very same day of your dental hygiene visit. If your gum condition requires more intensive care, however, we may have to set up another appointment or two. The hygienist will carefully explain the rationale behind your bespoke oral hygiene treatment plan.

Maintain your gum health

After your teeth and gums have been thoroughly cleaned and treated, the hygienist will give you a recommended re-care schedule for maintaining your oral health. This will include a recommendation for scheduling dental cleanings and periodontal maintenance appointments if needed. 

At this point, it is up to you to put into practice the suggestions you received here at Parkfield dental to maintain clean teeth and gums between your visits to our hygiene department.

Dental Hygiene in Didsbury

We can now welcome patients requesting the services of the Dental Hygienist/Therapist without having to be examined by a dentist prior to the appointment

Each patient is treated as an individual, so your appointment will be tailored to your needs and concerns. These may vary from a gum health assessment, professional cleaning, advise on homecare products, dietary, smoking cessation and any bad breath issues.

Our hygiene appointments last approximately 30 minutes and entail a detailed assessment of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. From this, we can then identify any areas that are in need of improvement and other areas, which may require specialist input. In addition to this, the hygienist will be able to provide a deep clean to ensure that the teeth and gums are clean. We also provide you with hygiene demonstrations and a programme to ensure they are kept clean until the next appointment.

For new patients to the practice who just want to see the Dental hygienist, the patient will be required to fill in an up to date medical history and a consent form for treatment. The patient will have a regular hygienist appointment and the standard fee will be payable at the end of the appointment.

Great care given always, fantastic team

Teeth stain removal in Didsbury

Although teeth stains are common, they can take a toll on your self-confidence.

Staining on the teeth doesn’t mean you can’t restore your natural smile. Thanks to our stain removal treatment here at Parkfield Dental in Didsbury, South Manchester, you’ll be happy to show off a perfect smile once again in just a matter of minutes.

Teeth stains: causes, problems, and a proven solution

The causes of stains on the teeth are varied, and depend mostly on your lifestyle and habits. These stains can be extrinsic, intrinsic, and also age-related. Extrinsic teeth stains are on the surface of the tooth, and these form when residue from foods or drinks build up in the protein that covers the tooth enamel. Intrinsic tooth stains are stains that occur beneath the tooth’s surface. In this instance, the particles responsible for the staining build up within the tooth enamel below the exterior of the tooth. As for age-related stains, these can be both intrinsic or extrinsic, but are a result of discolouration over time. The core tissue within a tooth also naturally turns yellow over time, meaning as you get older you’ll probably notice more staining.

These stains can present themselves in numerous ways, and will vary in appearance and colour. A yellow colour is common for those that smoke or chew tobacco, or consume tea, coffee, red wine on a regular basis. This staining can also be caused by poor oral hygiene, which is why taking care of your smile is so important. Brown discolouration is also commonly associated with tea, coffee and red wine consumption, but also more serious issues such as tooth decay that has been left untreated, or tartar buildup. Other stains can also appear white as a result of too much fluoride, or even black. The latter is usually caused by silver sulphide that’s found in crowns and fillings, or an advanced dental cavity that needs treatment.

However the stain appears and whatever it’s caused by, it’s likely to have an effect on your life. After all, some stains can signal that you need to improve your oral hygiene to prevent any further issues in the future. For many people, stained teeth can also affect their self-confidence when they smile. Those with perfect, stain-free smiles might seem enviable, but there’s no reason why you can’t have the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.

There are various recommendations when it comes to treating stains on the teeth. Common recommendations include using baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and apple cider vinegar, amongst others. However, these solutions can be tedious and time-consuming, at best, and damaging to your tooth enamel, at the worst. 

Of course, the best way to prevent staining is to maintain good oral hygiene and to attend regular dentist appointments, but sometimes our patients need a little more to get rid of stains and restore confidence in their smile. At Parkfield Dental, our AirFlow stain removal is a proven solution. The service is quick, effective, and will have your confidence restored in no time!

What is stain removal and how does it work?

At Parkfield Dental, our team use a high-tech AirFlow stain removal system to reveal a brighter, whiter smile that’s sure to restore your confidence and make you feel great about your appearance again. This treatment is designed to tackle harsh stains that are visible on the tooth, but are hard to remove with regular teeth whitening products or treatments. AirFlow uses a jet of compressed air, water, and fine sodium bicarbonate particles. This is then blasted under high pressure at the surface of your teeth to blast away any stubborn stains and plaque on your teeth, returning them to their natural whiteness. It’s much more effective than a standard scale and polish and makes an amazing difference in most smiles. It cleans teeth thoroughly and removes surface staining, giving an instantly whiter smile. Although this treatment is not a tooth whitening therapy, the airflow will significantly improve tooth brightness and give you a noticeably sparkling fresh healthy mouth in an instant.

This treatment does not include chemicals and is safe on tooth enamel. AirFlow is an advanced polishing treatment that allows you to walk away the same day with amazingly clean results, often in as little as 20 minutes. There’s no need for any pain management or anaesthetic when receiving this treatment as it is completely painless. 

This method lifts stains from all those difficult to access areas such as the tight spaces in between the teeth. Your teeth will be left looking and feeling refreshingly clean. This is also an ideal method to remove any underlying stains or scale before having tooth whitening treatment.

Almost every stain can be removed thanks to AirFlow. We find this treatment to be extremely popular with patients that have severe and visible staining. These patients are often smokers, take medication that affects the appearance of their teeth or have naturally dark teeth due to their genetics and therefore need more force to tackle their stains. AirFlow is also a great way to tackle common stains caused by foods and beverages such as curry, tea, wine and coffee.

The benefits of AirFlow

One of the many reasons our patients love AirFlow as a stain removal treatment is because of how quick the treatment is. This painless procedure is perfect for achieving effective results fast, making it the ideal option if you have a big event coming up (like a wedding, birthday or other special occasion) that you want to look and feel your best for. With results often visible in as little as 20 minutes, there’s no need to take loads of time out of your schedule for your AirFlow treatment.

Whilst AirFlow may be a straightforward and quick solution, the benefits it provides are long-lasting and often life-changing. Whilst there are other stain removal treatments out there, the results of AirFlow are unrivalled. In just a matter of minutes, your dentist will have created a smile suitable for Hollywood, giving you a newfound confidence that many patients describe as life-changing. If you want to change the appearance of your teeth effectively, quickly and affordably, AirFlow is the ideal treatment.

Besides the improvement in appearance that comes with the AirFlow procedure, another equally important benefit is the exceptional cleanliness that you’re left with. If your stains are the result of years of poor oral hygiene, AirFlow allows you to correct this. Moving forward, you’ll be left with a much healthier smile that can be easily maintained with regular cleaning and by booking frequent check-ups with your dentist here at Parkfield Dental. Whilst AirFlow is not a tooth whitening procedure, it works to restore the natural whiteness of your smile, making them appear brighter and cleaner than they were before the treatment.

By combining an improvement in the appearance of your teeth with an improvement in their cleanliness, AirFlow can restore and maximise the confidence you have in your smile. You can feel confident knowing your teeth have been restored to their natural whiteness, and that not only are you showing off a smile that looks good, but it’s healthy and clean, too! With this newfound confidence thanks to AirFlow, you’ll discover many more reasons to show off your stunning smile.

Frequently asked questions about oral hygiene and gum disease

  • What does a hygienist do?

    A dental hygienist is a registered dental care professional who is specially trained in preventative dental care. Their main role is to professionally clean your teeth and show you the best way to keep your mouth healthy. They may give advice on diet to prevent dental decay and suggest ways on stopping smoking. Fissure sealants and fluoride treatment, that your dentist may suggest, may also be a treatment done by the hygienist.Can I see a hygienist when I like?How often do I need to see the hygienist?

  • Can I see a hygienist when I like?

    With effect from 1 May 2013, Dental Hygienists and Dental Therapists are permitted to treat patients without a prior examination by a dentist.How often do I need to see the hygienist?

  • How often do i need to see the hygienist?

    We generally recommend scheduling appointments with three-month intervals for better monitoring and maximum dental care.

  • What happens in a deep cleaning?

    A deep cleaning is necessary when periodontal disease has resulted in the formation of deep pockets between the gums and the roots on certain teeth. Bacteria and tartar collect in these pockets and stick to the roots, and they cannot be removed with regular measures like brushing, flossing or routine dental cleanings.

    During a deep cleaning, the dental hygienist will use special teeth cleaning instruments with small tips that can access the roots below the gum line. Using these instruments requires finesse as strong yet very small movements are necessary to remove debris that is stuck to tooth roots below the gums. A deep cleaning thus can take quite some time to complete and treatment is often broken up across various appointments.

  • How long will my teeth stay clean after treatment with AirFlow stain removal?

    This depends entirely on your diet, smoking and oral hygiene habits. If you are a big fan of tea, coffee, red wine, and curries, you can expect the staining to return over a few months. If you rarely have these, don’t smoke and are very thorough about brushing your teeth, then your teeth can remain stain-free for up to a year. Most patients who choose Airflow treatment will have the procedure around once a year, and also just before any special occasions (perfect for weddings!).

  • Can I try removing teeth stains at home?

    You can try brushing your teeth with a mixture of baking soda and water. Some people get brighter teeth by brushing with a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution. There are also many over-the-counter stain removal products that claim to tackle tooth discolouration. With home-based treatments, however, results are not always guaranteed. Even if you do achieve noticeable results, a professional dentist will be able to achieve so much more. For a truly effective stain removal treatment, you should consult your dentist.

    At home, you should instead focus on preventing teeth stains before they happen, rather than addressing them afterwards. You can avoid foods that stain tooth enamel, like coffee, wine and dark berries. You can also limit your overall sugar intake, make sure there is plenty of calcium in your diet and brush your teeth regularly with a whitening toothpaste.
