Airflow therapy is a powerful way to remove plaque. Learn more about what it entails, how it works, and why we use it for dental hygiene appointments.

One in nine five-year-olds in Bath and Somerset have some form of tooth decay. While alarming, this statistic does not even account for the number of people outside this age group who suffer from caries and other forms of decay.

The good news is that tooth decay is preventable. Practising proper dental hygiene and attending scheduled cleanings can clear away harmful mouth bacteria. Getting airflow at the dentist’s can further improve oral health.

Airflow or airflow therapy is the latest advancement in modern dental technology. Read on to find out why this type of cleaning is so effective and how it can help you transform your dental health.

What Is Airflow Therapy?

Airflow therapy is a new dental cleaning technology that uses warm water, compressed air, and a bacteria-fighting compound called erythritol. This technology targets above and below the gumline for a deep, thorough clean.

How Do Airflow Dental Cleanings Work?

Airflow dental cleanings work via a six-step process. The steps are:

  1. Making bacteria buildup visible with a spray-on dye
  2. Showing you the buildup to guide your oral health endeavours
  3. Using AIRFLOW® to gently remove bacteria with warm water, compressed air, and fine erythritol powder
  4. Optionally, using PERIOFLOW® to target advanced decay or gum disease
  5. Using PIEZON® to gently remove difficult-to-treat hardened plaque
  6. Checking to ensure all bacteria, plaque, and hardened-on stains are cleared away

The result is a clean, whiter, and healthier smile that is easier to care for at home.

Why Get Airflow at the Dentist’s Office?

There are many benefits of airflow therapy. Here are three to consider before scheduling your appointment.

Sensitive Teeth-Friendly

Many people develop a fear of dentists based on bad experiences with dental hygiene treatments. You never have to worry about pain or discomfort again when you choose airflow. This treatment is ideal for older adults, kids, or anyone else with sensitive teeth.

Minimally Invasive

There is a small risk of damage to your teeth, gums, or fillings when you get a dental cleaning. Airflow therapy is different. It is minimally invasive, offering the gentlest cleaning you’ve ever had.

Faster and More Effective

Airflow therapy is more effective than traditional dental cleanings. This technology can reach far down into the gumline for the ultimate deep clean. Not only that, but this treatment also takes less time than regular cleanings.
