Deep cleaning to protect your oral health

If you suffer from sensitivity or pain during a regular dental hygienist appointment, you could benefit from this revolutionary new treatment. The Airflow cleaning system uses a fine stream of air, warm water and fine antibacterial grains to gently lift stains, food particles and plaque above and below the gum line. This process is suitable for those with sensitive teeth. The ideal treatment to protect against disease and prepare your teeth for other treatments such as orthodontics or implants.

Who is Airflow treatment suitable for?

Airflow treatment is suitable for adults and children and is particularly helpful in the treatment of gum disease. In cases of advanced gum disease, this treatment is also gentle enough to be carried out regularly, so you can quickly get your oral health back on track.

EMS Airflow treatment is ideal for use on natural teeth, restorations, implants, hypersensitive patients, orthodontic patients and recall appointments with the ability to reach hard to reach areas with precision. If you’re concerned about your oral health, book an appointment with our dental hygienist team to learn more about this innovative treatment option.

Who can benefit from a dental hygienist cleaning?

Anyone can benefit from a dental hygienist cleaning and we recommend regular visits to help keep your mouth, teeth and gums in excellent condition. This type of treatment is effective in removing plaque, tartar and calculus from the surface of the teeth, above and below the gum line.

Rather than using abrasive instruments, a fine stream of air, water and particles are used to gently and effectively clean the teeth. This treatment is recommended before treatments such as dental implants, orthodontics and restorations. It’s also ideal before teeth whitening to help remove surface staining.

Does Airflow treatment hurt?

You may have slight discomfort during the procedure, but it should not hurt. If you are in pain, let your dental hygienist know so they can adjust the treatment plan. This treatment is specifically recommended for those with sensitive teeth, and the water mixture is heated to a perfect 40°C to ensure it is neither too warm nor too cold.

Since there are no instruments touching your teeth or gums, many patients find this more pleasant than a traditional scale and polish. It’s also ideal for those with a dental phobia, as there are minimal instruments used. To learn more about Airflow dental hygienist treatments in Fife, contact Levenmouth Dental Spa today.
