Airflow treatment is a procedure that removes stains and that involves delivering powdered jet air onto your teeth through the use of a small handheld device that moves across your tooth surfaces (like a high-pressure jet water cleaner). It can be considered an air-polishing treatment for your teeth.

What is Airflow Treatment?
The combination of water and powder delivered at a high pressure effectively helps to remove plaque and staining. The removal plaque prevents the build-up of bacteria and hence decreases the chances of oral conditions such as tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontitis from developing.

Benefits of Airflow Treatment
Elimination of Stubborn Stains
One of its primary uses is to wash out stubborn stains on your teeth (from tea, coffee, red wine, curry, and tobacco, etc.) that cannot be removed with simple polishing, giving your teeth a seamless fresh, clean and white finish.
Airflow treatment cleans and polishes teeth using compressed air to provide you with effective stain removal and teeth whitening.
Plaque-Free Tooth Surfaces
Airflow treatment is also a handy companion for your dentist to thoroughly clean your tooth surfaces before placing a filling, crown, onlay, or bridge, to ensure that these are plaque-free.
The cleaner these surfaces are, the enhanced the success and longevity of your dental treatment. If you're concerned about removing plaque and young calculus that can lead to peri-implantitis, tooth decay, and gingivitis, airflow treatment is a viable option.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
Stage 1: Dental Check-Up
A dental check-up will first be conducted by our dentists to evaluate your dental health. Your teeth will then be scaled and polished by a dentist or hygienist.
Stage 3: Post-Treatment Care
After the procedure, your dentist will show you the result in a mirror to ensure that you are satisfied and then provide you with further oral health advice to ensure a lasting effect.
Stage 2: Airflow Treatment
If stubborn stains persist, airflow treatment can be used to remove these. Airflow treatment may also be done immediately before your dentist places a filling, crown, onlay, or bridge.
- The airflow treatment device will be held in close proximity and moved across your teeth whilst emitting high pressured powdered air. This air will be collected on the opposite end of the device with a suction tip.
You may feel slight air pressure on your teeth during the teeth cleaning procedure (like the feeling of having your teeth blown dry!), but you should not feel any pain. Patient comfort is our priority and our dental practice always focuses on that first.
