Clean teeth not only make you look and feel good, they also ensure fresh breath, help you feel confident, give you a brighter smile and are a vital part of maintaining healthy oral hygiene. Not brushing properly can lead to a whole host of problems including unhealthy bacteria, a build up of plaque and even gum disease.
Gum disease is far more serious than bleeding gums and bad breath – it is the most common infectious disease in the world and affects over 75% of over 35s in the UK. It is linked to a number of conditions including:
- Tooth Loss
- Heart Disease
- Low birth weight and premature babies
- Respiratory disease (especially pneumonia)
- Cancers (especially kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer and blood cancers)
The good news is that with the help of our professionally trained dentists and hygienist, here at Burneston Dental, we can help you to get your gums back to perfect health.

Burneston Airflow Tooth Polishing
Our dental hygienist uses Airflow tooth polishing, a new innovative method of dental cleaning that successfully tackles the persistent staining of lingering trespasses of our daily food and drink, leaving the mouth feeling cleaner and fresher than ever before.
Airflow combines the strength of 3 vital things– air, sodium bicarbonate and a jet of water. It is gentle and produces excellent results.
It is a step up from the standard Scale and Polish session since it combines the power of a thorough clean with a cosmetic feel! The Airflow is more successfully able to remove those persistent stains allowing the natural, whiter and brighter enamel to resurface, producing the dental refresh you are looking for!
