When plaque builds up on a tooth’s surface and the gum line, it can cause decay and disease. If it is not thoroughly removed, it can harden and turn into tartar.
At Derwent Street Dental Practice, our dentists and hygienists are trained to use the Airflow Tooth Polishing system to deep clean the teeth and gums; removing plaque, bacteria and other harmful deposits that can cause damage.
Unlike traditional scaling and polishing, this system is less abrasive on the dental enamel. Instead, a combination of compressed air, fine powder particles and a jet of water work together to remove deposits from the teeth. Not only does this clean the teeth, it also decreases any discomfort some patients experience during the cleaning process.
