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.
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.
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.
Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.
Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.
From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.
Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.
We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.
This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
