Airflow teeth whitening is used to remove the soft plaque and enamel pigmentation. Air-Flow can be used as a standalone procedure or as an additional one after ultrasonic calculus removal. Air Flow can be an auxiliary procedure before aesthetic filling, periodontal treatment, implantation. If you don't remove plaque before filling or prosthesis, it might cause a premature loss of the filling or periodontal pathology under the prosthesis. Orthodontic treatment should also be preceded by a professional cleaning as it polishes the dental surface which improves the grip with orthodontic constructions placed on the teeth.
Conditions for Air Flow

• There are areas of pigmentation;
• Prevention of periodontal disease;

How Air Flow works
Air flow underlies a special unit that jets spray under pressure , the liquid is composed by a mixture of fine granules of soda, water and air. Thin tip of its nozzle is able to get to hard-to-reach areas of the dentition and clean off dental deposits, both on visible areas and in the interdental spaces. With the help of a special dental aspirator the dentist's assistant removes water, powder and small particles, preventing them of scattering.
Air Flow whitening procedure teeth goes quickly and painlessly, without causing irritation and damage to gums and enamel. At the final stage as a preventive measure tooth polishing and protective coating with fluorinated compounds can be carried out. After Air Flow is complete, the doctor warns that for three hours it's not recommended to eat pigmenting foods and beverages (tea, coffee, juices bright, beet, etc.), also smoking is not recommended . During this time, natural organic pellicle recovers the dental surface again.
The result of Air Flow cleaning
After cleaning, the enamel gets its natural color back (about two shades lighter). The dental surface becomes smooth and acquires a healthy glow. If the patient is not happy with the natural color of his teeth enamel, modern dentistry has a wide range of chemical bleaching methods, that can whiten your teeth by 8-10 shades.
We should recall that the cost of professional cleaning is 15-20 times less than the cost of eliminating dental problems that already took place, not to mention the psychological discomfort of the patient . And how much do fresh breath, attractive smile and a positive mood cost? This is exactly the kind of effect people get from Air Flow bleaching.
