Airflow Technology – Just one of the factors that separate our hygienists

The Shepherds Hill Dental Centre Hygienist team is equipped with the latest technology to support a deep dental clean. At the forefront of our toolkit is the NSK Varios Combi Pro. This devices uses ‘airflow technology’ to remove staining and plaque, thus improving the appearance and health of your teeth and gums.

The tool uses a stream of air and water, which means no instruments coming into direct contact with teeth or gums. This water is pre-warmed to reduce sensitivity and improve patient comfort. Even people who generally find dental cleaning very sensitive or require numbing prior to cleaning find they can comfortably have their teeth cleaned using this airflow technology.

It is an excellent tool and just one of the many in the arsenal of our hygienists. Having this technology allows us to achieve better results for our patients compared to a conventional clean during your regular checkups. Our regular preventative checkups and cleans allow for thorough screening and early detection, which helps prevent future problems. Regular checkups also allow our dentists to monitor any changes and take efficient action before problems become bigger. A visit with the hygienist ensures the regular removal of plaque and calculus that is left and can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. We also use our hygiene appointments to teach you how to optimally care for your teeth and gums at home.
