This deep clean is an alternative to the traditional scale and polish and removes plaque and tartar buildup that can be hard to remove with brushing alone. It can also remove some surface staining, leaving your smile fresher and brighter. Thanks to Airflow Polishing, deep cleaning the teeth has become more patient-friendly, less invasive and more effective.
Airflow tooth polishing is performed during your hygienist appointment and it removes plaque and tartar, the bacteria that builds up on your tooth surfaces over time. Using a targeted stream of air, water and powder particles, Airflow tooth polishing gently blasts away plaque buildup, and the fine stream can get into tooth and gum crevices that brushing can miss.
Airflow Tooth Polishing cleans and polishes the surface of the teeth without damaging the enamel or gums. In contrast to the traditional ‘scale and polish’ method, Airflow doesn’t use hard scraping tools and is a gentler procedure. While it can sometimes feel a little strange to have your teeth polished, most patients experience minimal discomfort if any. It is also a method that can be safely used by patients with braces or prosthetics such as bridges.
