Professional tooth cleaning is vital for the long life of teeth replacements or natural teeth. That is why our dental assistants are specifically trained Prophylactic Assistants.
Studies from the US and Switzerland show that dental clinics specifically offering prophylaxis could reduce the number of emergencies relating to tooth fillings, reconstructions and tooth replacements.
Unattractive staining caused by coffee, tea or nicotine, for instance, can be removed completely only through professional teeth cleaning. Removing persistent stains is not otherwise possible, even with the best toothpaste and brush.
Prophylaxis do not hurt and can therefore help ease children’s dental anxiety. In addition, it contributes to an awareness of proper oral hygiene at home for children as well as adults. Thus, the risk of cavities or periodontitis can be reduced significantly.
The Advantages in a nutshell:
Projecting a jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles onto the surface of the tooth to polish the surface and remove debris. Plaque, soft deposits and colourations disappear quickly and painlessly – even from interproximal areas.
The AIR-FLOW® System is a method of professional mechanical tooth cleaning for selective removal of plaque and stains from all tooth surfaces. It delivers a controlled stream of fine powder particles to the tooth surface through water spray and compressed air. While being more efficient and cost-effective than traditional methods, this procedure also delivers higher patient comfort.
When dental plaque left untreated microorganisms colonize the area and develop a biofilm:
