Air Polishing

Air polishing is a drill-less method of polishing that can be used to remove stains and surface discolouration from your teeth. It uses a pressurised stream of a non-toxic aluminium oxide powder which rapidly removes the surface marks.
It is particularly beneficial for removing stubborn stains, which can be common for smokers and heavy tea and coffee drinkers.

The new technology uses a machine that combines a mixture of water, compressed air and fine powder particles. This method is far superior to traditional cleaning methods that use scraping tools and polishing brushes.

Air polishing stained teeth

The small particles are made of silica, aluminum oxide or baking soda and aid in cleaning the tooth surface. Air abrasion allows for decay to quickly be removed while conserving healthy tooth structure. The particles and decay are then suctioned out of the mouth.

Air abrasion is gentle because it generates no heat, sound, pressure or vibration. In addition, it reduces the need for anesthesia, making it an ideal choice for patients with stained teeth and those who experience dental anxiety.
