Plaque often builds up around and beneath the gum line, which can cause inflammation and infection. Airflow tooth polishing helps to remove these hard-to-reach deposits, improving the overall health of your gums.
Airflow polishing uses compressed air, water, and a special powder to reach into the gum pockets and the tiny crevices between teeth.
Most of our patients can benefit from airflow tooth polishing. Primarily, it is an excellent way to prevent and treat gum disease, as the cleaning jet can reach plaque deep beneath the gum line where regular brushing and flossing cannot. Airflow tooth polishing can remove surface stains and leave your teeth looking and feeling clean.
It is also effective at cleaning around orthodontic treatment systems like braces, which many patients find difficult.
Patients with overcrowding can also benefit from airflow tooth polishing as a way of removing plaque from the hard-to-reach areas between the teeth.
You can eat or drink as usual after an airflow tooth polishing treatment.
We recommend you refrain from smoking and avoid foods and drinks known to stain the teeth like tea, coffee, and red wine as much as you can, purely to maintain the cosmetic results of the treatment.
