Norfolk Dental Specialists

Experts in dental hygiene to help you achieve lifelong oral health

Our dental hygienists will also advise you on how to achieve a good, consistent standard of oral care at home. They can answer any questions you have about your oral health, and recommend the best products and techniques for you. This will ensure the long-term success of your treatment and help you maintain good oral health for many years to come.

Long-term studies have shown that maintaining a healthy, plaque-free mouth means reducing or even avoiding the need for dental treatment, and any dental treatment you do have will last longer. Although our patients return to their general dentist following their treatment with us, we recommend that you continue to visit our hygienists regularly to receive a high quality level of care and advice tailored to your needs.

Dental hygiene technology

Our dental hygienists utilise some of the most advanced dental hygiene technology available. This is especially important for periodontal treatment, when removing bacteria is essential for recovery and a thorough cleaning programme can help prevent invasive treatment.

Laser Dentistry: An innovative technology, laser dentistry uses a narrow beam of light energy to remove bacteria and decontaminate your mouth. Completely safe and comfortable, the procedure can speed up recovery from gum disease.

Air Flow Polishing: Using water, compressed air and fine powder particles, air flow polishing is a faster, more effective and more comfortable way of polishing teeth.

Laser Dentistry FAQ

What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is becoming increasingly more popular and offers state-of-the-art precision technology into a number of common and not-so-common procedures. L A S E R is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers are commonly named for the substance that is stimulated to produce the coherent light beam. In the diode laser, this substance is a semiconductor (a class of materials which are the foundation of modern electronics including computers, telephones and radios). This innovative technology has produced a laser which is compact and portable. The laser wavelength is ideally suited for soft tissue procedures since it is highly absorbed by haemoglobin and melanin. This gives the diode laser the ability to precisely cut, coagulate, ablate or vaporise the target soft tissue.

What is bacterial load and how does the laser reduce it?

The definition of Bacterial load is a-measurable quantity of bacteria in an object, organism, or organism compartment. Laser dentistry reduces this load and provides de-contamination of the gum pockets during non surgical gum treatments.

How does laser treatment promote healing?

Because the presence of bacteria has been minimised by the laser, healing and tissue regeneration can take place more effectively.

When do you use Laser Dentistry?

We use laser dentistry as an adjunct to your non- surgical treatment. After RSD treatment it can help with problems around persistent periodontal gum pockets, in order to avoid more complex periodontal treatment. Our hygienists are also trained in Laser Dentistry and as part of your oral health care and hygiene maintenance of your gums and teeth, the laser delivers an additional service to promote your oral well -being. The laser can also help with the treatment of cold sores and provide relief for muscular tension associated with teeth grinding (TMJ).

Does it hurt?

No; the treatment is painless, gentle and comfortable. Occasionally local anaesthetic is required. If you have a persistent gum problem, contact us to find out how laser dentistry can help you avoid more complex periodontal treatment.
