Enjoy unrivalled fresh clean feeling and say goodbye to the stains with our latest technology in teeth polishing.
Tea and coffee drinkers will know the effects that their choice of beverage has on their smile. Teeth that used to be white end up looking brown. Smokers will experience a similar result. Our state of the art practice in Gosforth is equipped with an AirFlow system that allows us to use a high-pressure stream of air to remove any stains and discolouration from the tooth surface. This highly efficient technique improves patient comfort by polishing without direct contact, pressure, heat or noise and is much superior to traditional periodontal treatments.
Although this is not strictly a whitening treatment, our patients at Gosforth Dental Surgery have commented on how much cleaner and whiter their teeth appear. The treatment is quick, painless and usually takes around 30 minutes to complete. If you want your smile to be the best it can possibly be, you need to go for AirFlow.
The benefits of AirFlow polishing system
- More comfortable for the patients as there is no scraping or digging into the gums. There is no instrument contact with the teeth and the technique does not generate any heat or vibration
- Air polishing powders with added flavours, such as spearmint, making the experience even more pleasant
- No teeth sensitivity during the process, therefore AirFlow polishing is ideal for those who suffer from sensitive teeth. This is not only due to the lack of direct contact and the absence of heat and vibration, but because the tiny micro particles of powder can actually fill any exposed dentine tubules and reduce dental sensitivity
- Faster and deeper cleaning can be achieved easily. Studies have shown that air polishing is over three times faster at removing stains and plaque than traditional methods
How does the AirFlow Polish work?
AirFlow polishing works by using a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles to remove the stains. Not only does it remove even serious staining, it can help remove heavy plaque build up. The procedure lasts for approximately 30 minutes.
Your AirFlow treatment can even be a fresh flavoured experience. The powders come in a variety of flavours such as mint and cherry and is much more pleasant and less gritty than the heavy paste used in traditional polishing. The results are immediate, you will feel and see the difference as soon as the AirFlow dental treatment has been completed.
