Air-polish uses a fine powder combined with air and water to remove staining and build up from teeth. It’s like a mini ‘sandblaster’ which can get into those hard to reach spaces between teeth that traditional polishing struggles to get to. Can be used in combination with bleaching to give excellent results.
Effective Stain Removal For Brighter Teeth
This innovative brightening technique gently cleans and polishes the teeth using non-abrasive technology. Air polishing works by using a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles to remove staining caused by coffee, tea, red wine and more. Not only does it remove even serious staining, it can help remove heavy plaque build up. For some patients, an Air Polish is most effective when it follows a routine scale and polish.
Your Air Polish treatment can even be a fresh flavoured experience. The powders come in a variety of flavours such as mint and cherry and is much more pleasant and less gritty than the heavy paste used in traditional polishing.
Air Polishing has many advantages as it generates no heat, sound, pressure or vibration, it is gentle and requires no contact or pressure against the teeth and reduces discomfort to those suffering from sensitivity.
It removes up to 100% of dental plaque thereby helping to prevent decay, gingivitis and gum disease and is far more effective than a traditional polish. It can also be used on dental implants. In addition, it reduces the need for anesthesia, making it an ideal choice for patients with stained teeth who experience dental anxiety.
