If you have been postponing your dental exam indefinitely, you should schedule that appointment for the sake of your teeth. Taking care of your teeth and gums involves more than just brushing and flossing at home. Good oral hygiene is important not only for your smile, but for your overall health as well.
At Dental FX, our experienced dentists and hygienists can give you a brighter, whiter smile, remove persistent tooth stains and help to keep your mouth in great condition. Our Airflow Polish machine uses compressed air, fine powder particles and water to remove plaque and tartar build-up from the teeth. Many patients find this procedure more comfortable than a traditional scale and polish.
What is the Airflow system?
Airflow is an innovative teeth cleaning system that uses a mixture of air, polishing powder and a gentle stream of water to remove surface stains and plaque from the teeth and gums. Airflow is gentle, kind to the tooth enamel, non-damaging to the teeth and significantly improves tooth brightness, giving you conspicuously lighter and brighter teeth just after the treatment.
Benefits of Airflow
Airflow removes dental plaque up to 5mm and helps prevent various types of gum disease such as gingivitis or periodontitis. Moreover, it removes tooth stains more easily than traditional polishing and scaling. Airflow does not compromise your dental implants or other tooth restorations – in contrary, it helps maintain them in good health. Airflow also cleans and opens fissures on your molars for sealing. More importantly, it is a great choice for cleaning around braces as well as for deep cleaning after braces are taken off. Finally, unlike regular scaling and polishing, Airflow does not apply any pressure on your teeth.
Is it safe?
The Airflow system is perfectly safe since it has been designed to take care of your teeth and gums. The mixture of air, water and polishing powder is non-toxic and if accidently swallowed, it will not cause any harm to the patient. Plus, cleaning your teeth with Airflow is a non-invasive treatment with no pain or discomfort. Since it uses kinetic energy and wind power instead of pressure, it causes no damage and will not scratch your tooth enamel.
