The benefits of AIRFLOW
Have you heard of the AIRFLOW method of teeth cleaning?
During the treatment, we make use of a special machine that cleans and polishes the teeth with a combination of air, warm water and fine powder. A great option for removing dental plaque and stains, the system works quickly and efficiently to clean hard-to-reach places in the mouth. Read on to find out why you should give it a try …
- It cleans thoroughly
If you feel like you clean your teeth properly but still notice that there’s some plaque build-up in your mouth, it is probably time for a professional clean. Plaque is not always visible to the naked eye, and it’s simply not possible to remove it by brushing and flossing alone. When you come in for an AIRFLOW treatment, we will thoroughly wash away any plaque that has accumulated on your teeth and gum line, leaving you with a smile that feels clean and fresh.
The system also works well in removing stains from the surface of the teeth. If you are worried that your teeth have become discoloured over time, the AIRFLOW treatment is a good option for you. It works by effectively removing stains and discolouration by gently exfoliating the teeth with a combination of air, warm water and fine powder.
- It doesn’t hurt
One of the best aspects of the AIRFLOW system is that it doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort. When you come in to have your teeth cleaned, you’ll simply lie back in the chair, open your mouth, and feel the sensation of warm water on your teeth. There is no need for scraping with metal instruments, or any discomfort of any kind. Also, this modern form of teeth cleaning is much quicker than traditional methods. This means less time in the dental chair.
- It’s suitable for sensitive teeth
The AIRFLOW system is ideal for patients with sensitive teeth because it’s very gentle. Also, the process actually doesn’t involve direct contact with the teeth. The tiny particles of powder that are used are designed to reduce sensitivity and also work to remineralise and strengthen the teeth.
- It can be used before and during orthodontic treatment
AIRFLOW is an ideal form of teeth cleaning for those with braces, and can also be used in preparation for procedures that require any kind of bonding or the use of sealants. Because the treatment only uses warm water, air and fine powder to clean the teeth, there are no ingredients that will interfere with bonding procedures. In fact, the system actually makes it easier for bonds and sealants to attach to the surfaces of the teeth.
