What is Airflow Polishing? Airflow is an advanced method of cleaning treatment that prominently cleans and polishes teeth. It can be used alone or in combination with the conventional scale and polish by the dentist or hygienist. How does it work? Airflow works by shooting out a high pressured and concentrated blast of water, air, and bicarbonate (usually a lemon flavour) at the surfaces of your teeth. Airflow is very effective at cleaning teeth and will also clean the hard to reach places, leaving you feeling very fresh with clean and healthy teeth and gums. It has been proven to be effective at tackling tough stains and plaque, particularly at those very fine corners that the routine scale and polish cannot get to! Airflow can get into the nooks and cranny’s of the teeth removing the stains and instantly leaving you feeling fresh and clean. It can also significantly improve the aesthetics of your teeth leaving them to appear whiter as it is very efficient at removing stains.
Are there any dangers using Airflow? No, Airflow is NOT a chemical treatment and therefore there are no risks of any irritations or any risks if accidentally ingested. It is completely non- invasive, pain free and it only takes 30 minutes.

Crowns and bridges
Dental crowns are types of tooth restorations that are able to restore function and aesthetics to teeth that have become impaired. A dental crown can be used to enable restoration of strength to a damaged tooth, and/or improving aesthetics and preventing further damage. A dental bridge is used to replace an entire missing tooth. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that is permanently fixed into your dentition replacing a missing tooth. There are different types of bridges available.
Dentures are another way to replace missing teeth. Partial removable dentures are used to replace a number of missing teeth. Complete dentures are able to replace entire sets of missing teeth. Modern and improved dentures are lighter, more comfortable to wear and more natural looking than they used to be in the past. They provide a comfortable and often more cost effective solution to replacing missing teeth.
Root canal treatments
Root canal treatment is a procedure carried out to remove the damaged/ infected nerve tissue from the root of the tooth. It is often a method of saving a tooth that would otherwise have to be removed. It provides the opportunity to keep and restore a tooth for some years.
Dental Implants are the alternative method of tooth replacement. A dental implant is inserted into the jawbone to support the false tooth or teeth. Such implants may become firmly attached or integrated with the bone and act in a similar manner to a tooth root. This option does not require any treatment or alteration to the neighbouring teeth and is considered to be the longest lasting method of replacement. A dental implant placed by an experienced specialist is a safe and reliable method of replacing teeth whether you have lost one, several or all of them. The most important part of your treatment is the consultation visit when the pros and cons of different treatment options are assessed and explained to you.
