What is Airflow teeth cleaning?

Airflow teeth cleaning is an oral hygiene treatment that effectively and non-invasively cleans teeth by removing stubborn stains such as coffee, red wine, tobacco, and tea.

Airflow tooth polishing is gentle on your teeth as it involves only the use of compressed air pressure, sodium bicarbonate, and controlled water pressure to effectively blast the stains from your teeth and remove plaque and other debris in the process.

While teeth vary in shade due to the thickness of enamel, surface staining is generally caused by several factors such as frequent consumption of tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking. Many patients assume that whitening procedures are the only solution to remove staining, however, one of the most effective ways to improve teeth colour is having a routine cleaning appointment to remove stains.

Airflow teeth cleaning is the most gentle and non-invasive way to get your teeth cleaned and maintain good oral health. It takes less than a few minutes at the end of a routine dental hygiene appointment and can be used instead of the traditional scale and polish which can be difficult for people with sensitive teeth and gums.

How does this procedure work?

This procedure involves a powerful combination of water, air, and sodium bicarbonate in the form of a fine powder that removes surface stains and plaque quickly and gently. The results are usually instant.

What is the difference between Airflow teeth cleaning and a regular teeth cleaning procedure?

This procedure is preferred by many with sensitive teeth, as it cleans only the surface of the teeth, unlike traditional scale and polish methods, which can be abrasive and scratch enamel. Airflow teeth cleaning has proven to be as gentle as it is effective, thereby making it a very popular method of teeth cleaning and whitening.

Benefits of Airflow teeth cleaning

The main advantages of Airflow Teeth Cleaning include:

The procedure is completely painless as it only involves air and water pressure. It does not use any other dental tools to scrape or ‘dig’ out plaque, thereby making it the most suitable option for frequent use and for sensitive teeth and gums.

Can easily clean hard to reach areas that regular brushing and flossing may not be able to access, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial build up that can lead to gum disease.

The process takes only a few minutes and can be done at the end of your dental hygiene check-up.

The results are immediate, leaving you with smooth, clean, and whitened teeth.

It won’t damage natural tooth enamel as this process does not scrape the enamel but uses air and water pressure to clean the surface of the teeth and in between the teeth.

Stubborn build-up of plaque can be easily removed with this treatment which will leave your teeth stain-free and restore it to its original pearly white appearance.

It can be done on any type of dental work including dental implants, crowns, and bridges.

It’s a perfect way to brighten your teeth and freshen your mouth before an important event or job interview.

Is this treatment invasive?

This treatment is not invasive at all. It focuses on polishing the surface of the teeth and only uses air and water pressure to reach between teeth.

Is it safe for sensitive teeth?

Yes, this treatment is safe for sensitive teeth and gums as it does not scratch the enamel and uses only air and water pressure to clean the teeth.

Is it right for me?

Airflow treatment is for anyone looking for healthier teeth, healthier gums, and a brighter smile. From light staining to more severe stains, this treatment significantly improves tooth brightness, giving you a sparkling, healthy mouth.

I have dental implants. Can I still have Airflow treatment?

Yes! The powder used with Airflow is so gentle that, unlike regular scalers, it is safe to use with dental implants, with no risk of scratching or scuffing. It is a great way of keeping implants and the gums supporting them clean and healthy

Is it painful?

No, this treatment is not painful at all. The Airflow unit directs a fine spray of water and powder onto the surface of the teeth. The unit even pre-warms the water to reduce sensitivity. Even people who generally find dental cleaning very sensitive or require numbing prior to cleaning find that they can have their teeth cleaned comfortably using this method.

How long does it take?

This treatment is done in a few minutes, depending on the assessment of your teeth and the extent of staining or plaque.

How often can I do it?

Unlike conventional scale and polish methods and whitening treatments, Airflow teeth cleaning can be done as often as your dental hygienist recommends.

Can Airflow be used to treat gum disease?

This is one of the major benefits of Airflow. It removes the sticky sheet of bacteria, known as “biofilm”, that sits around teeth and gums and is the main cause of gum disease This biofilm develops when dental plaque is colonised by bacteria and removing it has been shown to be a crucial aspect in treating gum disease and keeping gums and teeth healthy. Deep pockets may form around the teeth as a result of gum disease, in which case, the special nozzle which is used is able to flex and adapt to clean spaces under the gum line.
