Air Polishing in Preston

Family dental treatments

What is Air Polishing?

Air Polishing is a technique used by our Dental Hygienists to remove heavy staining from your teeth. A stream of air, water and Flash pearl polishing particles are sprayed over the tooth surfaces; this stream breaks down and removes staining and discolouration.

Why choose Air Polishing?

In the past clinicians could only remove staining by scaling and polishing. Some staining can be very stubborn or trapped in tiny spaces within or around the teeth and notoriously difficult to remove using the traditional techniques. Air Polishing allows the Hygienist to remove staining from areas that were previously impossible to access giving you a fantastic result from your cleaning appointment.

Is the procedure safe?

Yes, Air Polishing is proven to be a safe and effective way of removing staining deposits on your teeth. Air Polishing not only removes staining deposits on the teeth but also has the additional advantage of removing plaque bacteria which, can benefit your oral hygiene; helping to prevent dental decay and gum disease.

Will it hurt?

No. We generally find that most patients we treat report little to no sensitivity.
