Air Flow polishing – for cleaner, brighter teeth

Do you have stains and discolouration caused by smoking or by drinking red wine, tea and coffee, or prolonged use of strong mouthwash? North Street Dental and Implant Clinic now have a new polishing machine to help you achieve a cleaner, brighter smile.

The innovative Air Flow polishing technique uses a machine that cleans and polishes the teeth with a mix of water, compressed air and fine powder particles. This method is far superior to traditional stain removal methods that use scaling tools, rubber cups and polishing discs which can be time-consuming for removing stains and uncomfortable for some patients.

This method also brings the potential for stains to build up again much more quickly as a rough surface can be left on the surface of the teeth, not visible to the naked eye.

How does it work?

A powerful yet controlled jet of water, air and fine powder polishes all the surfaces of a tooth, removing plaque, discolouration and soft deposits. It is far more efficient than traditional scale and polish treatment at removing stubborn stain. Air polishing is completely safe to use with dental implants, veneers, crowns, bridges and orthodontics.

  • More Comfortable Stain Removal

Anyone who has ever cringed as a scaling tool touches their teeth or a polishing disc presses onto tooth enamel will welcome air polishing for its painless, fast and non-invasive method of cleaning. Even interdental areas are easily reached. With no instrument contact, the technique does not generate any heat or vibration. The non-toxic powder used in air polishing is also more pleasant and less gritty than the heavy paste used in traditional polishing.

  • Reduces Teeth Sensitivity

Air flow polishing is ideal for those who suffer from sensitive teeth. This is not only due to the lack of direct contact and the absence of heat and vibration, but because the tiny micro particles of powder can actually fill any exposed dentine tubules and reduce dental sensitivity.

  • Faster Cleaning – one appointment

Studies have shown that air polishing is over three times faster at removing stains and plaque than traditional methods. This means less time in the chair for the patient and therefore fewer visits needed to remove pesky staining.

  • Improves Aesthetics

Air Flow polishing is the ideal way to remove the stains and discolouration caused by smoking or by drinking red wine, tea and coffee and mouthwash as it cleans surface stains on the teeth while thoroughly removing soft dental plaque. This gives a brighter and sometimes whiter appearance to the teeth.

  • Aiding Whitening Treatment

Whitening treatment can also be boosted by this polishing treatment as surface stains are removed allowing more direct access to the surface of the tooth, making whitening treatment potentially quicker.
