Air polishing is a procedure that uses air and water pressure to deliver fine particles of powder(sodium bicarbonate) in a warm spray and directed onto the surfaces of the teeth. This pressurised jet of air, water and powder removes surface stains, plaque and other soft deposits trapped in between the teeth.
It is more effective at removing stain and is less sensitive than conventional scaling and polishing. It is ideal for removing stain caused by:
- Tea and coffee
- Red wine
- Prolonged use of mouthwashes
