Airflow THERAPY DEFINED

This is a non-abrasive teeth brightening method that cleans and polishes the teeth with care. Air-flow combines water, fine powder particles, and compressed air to take out stains, discolouration, and plaque.

Unlike conventional scaling, this technique utilizes a great spray technology that can reach those inaccessible areas such as below the gum line. When bacteria encrusted plaque sits on the gumline for a long time, it creates a biofilm that envelopes the teeth. But this treatment will gently remove the infected film covering the teeth without affecting its surface.

During orthodontic treatment, you may be required to see a hygienist. You may also need a hygienist's visit after having a crown, bridge, or implants to keep them clean.

You and your children can have airflow therapy more than once.
