The air flow system or polishing technique is the hot new trend when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. This new technology is considered to be traversing a new horizon when it comes to how dentistry is done. In layman terms, the system makes use of a machine that cleans out your teeth by polishing it with air.
To be more specific, it uses compressed air, water, and fine power particles that scrub the surface or enamel of your teeth to polished porcelain perfection. It’s a non-gum-irritating way to “sandpaper” your teeth to smoothness, in short. The air flow system is particularly effective against tartar and plaque.
Newer and Better Cleaning Method
Instead of painstakingly scraping through the deposits and food on the surface of your teeth (as in the case of polishing discs, rubber cups, and scraping tools), you can now depend on the air flow system to polish your teeth at the fraction of the time.
There’s no need to resort to time-consuming and uncomfortable methods any longer. It’s especially useful when it comes to people with sensitive gums and teeth, since contact is much shorter in order to get maximum results, thus the risk of a bad tooth or gum reaction is significantly reduced.
How the Air Flow System of Dentistry Works
The method behind the air flow system is quite ingeniously simple:
- Liquid, Solid, and Gas: Fine powder for grit, air pressure, and a powerful yet controlled jet of water is used to polish all surfaces of your tooth in a methodical manner so that the enamel isn’t excessively removed. It’s a lot like smoothening marble in the way it removes soft deposits, discoloration, and plaque.
- Dental Disease Prevention: The air flow system is also capable of reaching deep into periodontal pockets up to 5 millimeters in depth. Its efficiency as a polishing treatment cannot be denied, particularly when it comes to tooth-decaying biofilm that develops when dental plaque is colonized by bacteria, which can cause peri-implantitis and periodontitis.
- Perio-Flow Extension Nozzle: You can (safely) dig even deeper into teeth in distress with the Perio-Flow extension nozzle to induce completely safe air flow polishing for the sake of cleaning out your teeth and gums in a subgingival level. This is particularly handy in cleaning out bridges, crowns, veneers, and dental implants.
Improved Patient Comfort
If you’ve ever cringed at the prospect of dealing with scraping tools that dig into your gums and cause damage to it or polishing discs that grind right into tooth enamel can depend on the painless, fast, and non-invasive capabilities of air flow system polishing.
You won’t have to feel uneasy at the prospect of nursing gum sores when the anesthesia wears off or undergo nightmares of having your teeth ground like planks of wood with a tooth grinder. The airflow method is so fast, you’ll be in and out of the clinic in no time at all!
Deep Pockets and Interproximal Areas
Because of the invasive and hurtful nature of scraping and disc polishing methods to teeth cleaning, they tend to be incapable of deep pocket and interproximal area contact. In contrast, you can safely, painlessly, and easily reach these regions with the air flow system sans the damaging probes of scrapes and curettes.
There will be no instrument contact when undergoing the airflow system. They’re like dental drills with their combination of water, grit powder, and air pressure, but without the disturbing drill contact includes. That’s what the airflow method brings to the (dentist’s) table!
