Airflow polish in Canary Wharf

Airflow tooth polishing is a modern technique for the removal of plaque. The process uses a mix of compressed air, water, and a special powder to clean the surface of the teeth. It is particularly effective at removing deep-seated plaque from between the teeth and gums, where traditional brushing and other cleaning techniques often fail to reach.

What Does it Feel Like to have Airflow polish?

More or less how you’d imagine – like a stream of air is being directed across your teeth! Patients generally find it to be less painful than drill-based techniques, although it should be noted that the air jet can cause a little sensitivity at the time of the procedure.

Are there any Limitations?

As with any dental procedure, the effectiveness of airflow teeth cleaning will depend on your specific requirements. It may not be suitable in all situations.

For instance: It is not recommended for cleaning deep cavities, or those that have formed between teeth. If hard enamel must be removed to access the decay, air abrasion won’t be up to the task.

Our friendly team can advise on whether or not airflow cleaning is the best option for your teeth.

What are the benefits of Airflow tooth polishing?

Compared to traditional deep-cleaning techniques like a scale and polish and home-based dental hygiene practises, Airflow tooth polishing offers more effective cleaning between the teeth and below the gum line. It is also a suitable method of removing a build-up of plaque around prosthetics such as dental implants and bridges.

How will I feel after the treatment?

Your teeth and mouth should feel fresh and clean after the treatment. You may also find that your teeth feel smoother against your tongue. This is because the plaque and tartar have been removed which changes the surface texture of the teeth. After treatment, it is essential you maintain a good standard of dental hygiene and keep your teeth as free of plaque as you can going forward.

How long does Airflow polish take?

The duration of Airflow tooth polishing treatment depends on the amount of plaque build-up around your teeth. It typically takes around 20 to 30 minutes for the entire appointment, which is much faster than a traditional scale and polish.

How long will the results last?

The results from an Airflow procedure are generally quite impressive. However, you will need to take care of your teeth afterwards. Even though the stains will have been removed, this doesn’t mean that they can’t return, and you should maintain a good dental hygiene routine.

This includes regular brushing and flossing and visiting your dentist at least every 6 months to have your teeth checked out. In addition, you should ensure that you brush your teeth whenever you have consumed typically staining foods or drink, for example, coffee or red wine.
