Traditional cleaning has remained virtually unchanged for many years. To remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) that can build up on your teeth, your dentist may suggest that you have your teeth scaled and polished. This is a ‘professional clean’ usually carried out at your dental surgery by a dental hygienist.
The dental hygienist will scrape away plaque and tartar from your teeth using special hand instruments and ultrasonic devices, then polish your teeth to remove marks or stains. Until now.
AquaCare uses a mix of air, water and powder to gently wash away staining and to brighten teeth.
You should expect a ‘sandy’ feeling on your teeth immediately after treatment. Don’t worry! These are natural minerals attaching to the tooth surface. The ‘sandy’ feeling will go away leaving you with bright and smooth teeth.
It is recommended to wait at least one hour after treatment so that the minerals have formed the protective enamel-like layer.
Every cleaning appointment.
Sylc has been approved* for cleaning and polishing and there are no side effects with the use of Sylc.
AquaCare uses breakthrough technology to deliver a comfortable, quick cleaning procedure by using a fine stream of fluid combined with a tiny volume of powder directed at the teeth to be treated. Decay is then comfortably removed with minimal sensation, leaving healthy tooth material undisturbed.
Sylc’s unique formulation contains over 99% Novamin® – an advanced calcium phosphate technology, scientifically* proven to reduce sensitivity. Sylc particles quickly help to seal the channels that are responsible for sensitivity. It then forms an enamel-like layer which bonds to the tooth giving longer lasting protection from hot and cold drinks and food.
Unlike a conventional dental drill, hand instruments and ultrasonic devices, the AquaCare procedure makes no contact with your tooth and there is no distressing vibration, heat or smell.
In fact, there is so little sensation that anaesthetic injections are rarely necessary
