Air polishing provides more effective cleaning

The machine for air polishing uses a powerful jet of water, fine powder, and air which not only polishes the tooth with all its surfaces, remove plaque, soft deposits, and cleans discolorations, but also reaches deep into the periodontal pockets up to a depth of five mm. According to many studies, it is more effective than a conventional scrape and polishing treatment which tries to remove the biofilm which is created when the dental plaque is colonized by bacteria. If not treated on time, it may cause periodontitis and also periimplantitis.

Keep in mind that subgingival air polishing can be performed with the usage of a “perio-flow” extension nozzle and air flow polishing is absolutely safe and it can be used with dental implants, crowns, bridges, and veneers.

Why patients should consider an air polishing treatment

There are so many reasons why to accept this type of popular treatment. It is less abrasive than prophylaxis pastes and if any soft tissue trauma has occurred during the process, it may dissipate in the next twenty-four hours. This polishing procedure can provide smooth root surfaces and remove all the bacteria. The price of an air polishing procedure is less expensive than many other teeth whitening procedures. The process is gentle and it is a perfect match for those who experience sensitive teeth. Consider the fact that the air polishing service is offered at a normal hygiene fee of £58. The treatment could be completed together with a standard hygiene appointment. The one hour visit of £116 includes normal hygiene service followed with intensive stain removal using the innovative solution air flow.  However, the two procedures can be completed separately.

The air polishing is a great way to remove the discolorations and all the stains which are caused by drinking red wine, coffee, tea, or by smoking. Remember that this procedure can whiten your teeth and at the same time it removes the dental plaque and save the gums and teeth from future problems.

Air polishing could also be used as a before treatment when sealing fissures and it seems to be the best method which has to be used before the bonding procedure. This highly powerful dental technique improves the comfort of the patients simply by polishing their teeth without direct contact, heat, pressure, or noise and it is much superior to conventional periodontal treatments.
