DENTAL JET POLISHING
Traditional visits to the hygienist involve a ‘scale and polish’, using tools you’re probably familiar with. But did you know that you can now have a high-tech jet polish instead? It’s the dental equivalent of pressure washing your windows!
Completely safe, chemical-free and actually more gentle to your teeth and gums than traditional cleaning tools, our Airflow jet polish system combines air, water and a very fine bicarbonate powder into a focused stream that blasts plaque and stains off your teeth and under the gum line. Some of the advantages of Airflow over traditional cleaning are:
It’s gentler - Not only is Airflow less abrasive to enamel and gums than traditional cleaning tools, but less scraping means less sensitivity as a result. Additionally, the fine powder particles used in the jet polish actually fill in microscopic gaps in your enamel, which also reduces sensitivity.
It cleans better - Airflow jet polishing can remove biofilm and plaque that even a hygienist can’t see, and can reach deeper into pockets under the gum line to gently and safely clean your teeth and gums better than they’ve ever been cleaned before. Airflow removes nearly 100% of bacteria, something no manual cleaning can hope to achieve.
It will make your teeth look better - Airflow jet polishing is an excellent way to brighten your smile, because it blasts away superficial stains on teeth. It’s also a great way to kickstart a professional whitening treatment or to maintain your whitening once you’ve had it done.
It’s more pleasant - In fact patients report it’s almost fun! Instead of having tools scraping away in your mouth, you can now have a refreshing stream of pleasant tasting polish.
It’s faster - Over three times as fast as a traditional clean, this means less time spent sitting in the dental chair!
