An Air Polish is a simple hygiene treatment that effectively removes stains on the teeth and discolouration while thoroughly removing dental plaque. It's an innovative treatment that we offer to patients who want a brighter, cleaner smile.
What is Air Polishing like?
Air polishing is a simple and pain-free process. The airflow uses a controlled but powerful jet of water and lemon flavoured powder, as opposed to the scraping tools and a rotary polishing head used in a traditional scale and polish. It is a fast and non-invasive way of cleaning teeth. Using airflow your dentist can clean deep pockets and interdental areas to give you a bright fresh smile.
How effective is an Air Polish at whitening the teeth?
Although an air polish cannot whiten your teeth past their natural, clean shade, they are extremely effective and efficient at removing any surface stains or other contaminants that can discolour your teeth. Air polishing is so effective that it can even remove extremely bad stains, such as those caused by coffee, tea or red wine. It is also very effective at removing stains left by smoking tobacco, or stains which some mouthwashes can leave.
Air polishing is an effective treatment to restore your smile, and is much cheaper and less invasive than traditional whitening solutions. Therefore, it is often well suited to people with sensitive teeth or anyone looking for a really deep clean, maybe prior to a wedding or another special event.
What are the benefits of Air Polishing?
- Air polishing leaves the enamel intact and undamaged, unlike some other cleaning methods.
- It can be used on dental implants, as it is more gentle than other options.
- The treatment does not apply any pressure or direct force to the teeth.
- Air polishing doesn't generate any heat or any other potential sources of discomfort.
