Air Polishing

Cosmetic air polishing with the EMS Air Flow system.

Air Flow technology delivers a controlled stream of fine powder particles to the tooth surface through water spray and compressed air.

Having your teeth air polished with the Air Flow system has a number of therapeutic advantages; firstly it removes dental plaque and therefore helps prevent gingivitis and periodontal disease around natural teeth and implants. It is fantastic at removing staining from the tooth surface and it’s particularly useful to have an air polish prior to the bonding of orthodontic brackets.

The Air Flow system is not usually used as a stand-alone treatment, but it is a valuable part of our routine Dental Hygienist appointments. Towards the end of your Oral Hygiene appointment and while still in the dental chair, the hygienist will methodically air polish individual teeth, which will involve a jet of high pressure water and Air Flow powder.

The Dental Nurse will use the suction to reduce a build-up of water and powder. Even in the presence of great oral hygiene, over time we all develop staining on the tooth surface. Staining can originate from pigmented foods such as chilli con carne and curries, drinks such as tea and coffee and habits such as smoking. Air Flow polishing is an extremely effective way of improving your smile and it also helps maintain a healthy mouth.
