Why Airflow Cleaning – Dental Routine ?
A new kind of cleaning treatment involves a mixture of air, jet water and bicarbonate of soda, known as Airflow to clean your teeth dramatically during your hygiene visits. A high-pressure ray consisting of water, air, and bicarbonate is used to shoot through a nozzle onto the surfaces of the patients teeth and has been proven to be an efficient tool at removing stains and plaque.
There is no need to worry as the treatment doesn’t involve the use of chemicals. So patients will not be exposed to any kind of risk of chemical burns or irritation.
At 121 Earls Court Dental Practice we use both traditional mercury amalgam fillings and white fillings for restoration. Majority of our patients opt for white fillings compared to other available options. They find these white fillings aesthetically pleasing thus giving it an edge over other restorations options.
Over 80% of the fillings created today are composed of resin or synthetic composite materials. Composite fillings are made up of acrylic and glass particles, and are free from mercury or other metals. As the filling material is white or matched to the color of your teeth and it has a very natural appearance.
However, it should be noted that these types of fillings, while improving strength because they are fused or bonded to the tooth are idea for small fillings only.
As the name suggests Dental bridges actually bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are made of two or more crowns to fill either side of the gap in the teeth. The abutment teeth on either side act as an anchor for the false teeth in between (called a pontic).
Depends on the requirement they can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials.
Bridges are an integral part of modern dentistry since the first part of the last century and before the utilization of implants was the well-liked method for replacing teeth. Bridge technology remains viable and in certain cases bridges over dental implants.
Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. Fixed bridges are strong and reliable and in most cases they feel and appearance considerably like natural teeth!
