How is it done?

6. Then polishing of the enamel is performed.
5. Then remineralization of the teeth is performed. The enamel is saturated with calcium-containing elements to consolidate the result and reduce sensitivity.
4. After removing the biofilm, if necessary, the doctor can remove hard deposits with an ultrasound scaler.
3. Then we begin cleaning with the Airflow device. For this purpose, the patient's mouth is fixed with a retractor and the face is covered with a silicone screen.
2. A substance reacting to the presence of a biofilm or fine calculus is applied to the surface of the teeth – it shows where the bacteria is and how long it has been on the teeth. After that, the type of powder and cleaning technology is selected.
1. During the initial examination, the doctor evaluates the condition of the oral cavity and discovers/excludes contraindications to the procedure.

FAQ

Does Airflow hurt?
No, it doesn't. The procedure is painless and does not require anesthesia. If the patient is worried about discomfort, the doctor can treat the teeth with a local anesthetic in the form of a spray.
Does Airflow whiten teeth?
Only by 1–2 tones by removing yellowish plaque and pigment spots. A professional teeth whitening is required for a stronger effect.
