Airflow Tooth Polishing

The Airflow Tooth Polishing system allows the dental hygienist to reach areas that regular tooth brushing cannot such as between teeth.

This type of cleaning, especially around the gum line where bacteria tend to breed and cause problems, helps keep your mouth fresh and healthy.

What does Airflow use that is so different from other cleaning technologies?

Airflow uses a combination of air pressure and water. Compressed air pushes the water stream out of the nozzle while the hygienist directs the flow throughout your mouth.

The hygienist uses a special cleaning powder to help remove all the plaque, ingrained stains, and tartar from your teeth and gums.

After cleaning and rinsing, the Airflow System uses an Airflow polishing powder to brighten your teeth after cleaning.

Is Airflow good for sensitive teeth?

Airflow can be suitable for sensitive teeth since there is no direct contact with any brush, scrapper, or other dental instruments. Only a gentle stream of water makes contact with your teeth and gums.

The Airflow powder helps reduce overall teeth sensitivity as the tiny particles of powder can fill-in exposed dental tubules, reducing the tooth’s sensitivity and encouraging the re-mineralisation of the tooth. The Airflow system is effective on cleaning braces too.
