AquaCare delivers highly efficient cleaning and stain removal. It increases the effectiveness of tooth whitening and can clean deep into the structure of the tooth. The effective technology removes stains from all tooth surfaces, even those difficult to reach pits and crevices which normal cleaning can’t reach.
One of AquaCare’s main features is the patented handpiece. The handpiece delivers a high-speed, comfortable fluid stream. The fluid is fed from a self-contained reservoir within the unit.
The main airstream exits the handpiece at around 80 psi. There are Speed and Powder controls, allowing the Dentist to adjust the pressure and the amount of powder that goes into the device.
AquaCare is used for preparing cavities without the need for anesthetic or drilling. AquaCare cuts quickly but predictably, minimizing the removal of healthy tooth material and eliminating the risk of chipping or stress fracturing.
Unlike conventional instruments, AquaCare is not in direct contact with the tooth structure. There is no heat generation, noise, vibration or smell.
AquaCare is also used for:

Regular hygiene check-ups can ensure your oral health is maintained and infections and diseases are prevented. Hygiene services are a preventative method that keep your smile happy and healthy – if regular check-ups are avoided, it could potentially lead to undiscovered infections, diseases or even undetected mouth cancer. The best way to avoid dental problems and maintain good oral hygiene is to go to your dentist regularly.
Typically, people brush and floss their teeth twice a day, which tackles the cleanliness and appearance of your teeth when you look in the mirror. However, what you are not seeing in the mirror requires the recommended twice a year hygienist visits to sustain your dental health and keep your whole mouth happy.
Depending on the level of oral hygiene, here at Ollie & Darsh, we recommend a check-up to be scheduled for every 3 to 6 months. This way we can always keep an eye on your oral health and use preventative care to eliminate diseases or infections.
Oral hygiene check-ups are just as important for implants as they are for teeth. Bacteria can accumulate around the implants which can lead to infections potentially threatening the success of the rehabilitation.
Smokers are more likely to develop gum disease and at an earlier age. Research has found that smoking cigarettes more than doubled the rate of tooth loss for individuals and increased the chances of becoming completely toothless by 4 times.
Lack of Sleep
It has been proved that sleep deprivation is the second leading cause (after smoking) of gum related health issues. People that have 6 hours or less of restless sleep are more susceptible to gum disease due to pockets forming between gums and teeth, as well as destruction of the bone.
A symptom of pregnancy that many people are unaware of is the softening of gums. This makes oral hygiene even more important than usual, as soft gums can be more susceptible to infection and plaque build-up. Infected and bleeding gums could result in damage to your teeth, so it’s recommended that pregnant women have regular dental check-ups to ensure any dental issues are dealt with as soon as possible.
