AirFlow Dental Hygiene

Here at The Courtyard Clinic, we always keep up to date with advancements in dental technology. Introducing the revolutionary Swiss precision AirFlow hygiene solution to pain free scale and polish!

AirFlow scale and polishing has advanced our hygienist, dental appliance hygiene and implant treatment service provision. Few clinics offer this highly advanced gum therapy, and you will see and feel the difference this new technique has to offer vs the more simplistic routine hand scale and polish. Give it a try, especially if you have sensitive teeth. The warm water and gentle powder combination will give your teeth a sparkle in the most comfortable way like no other!

Airflow cleanses the teeth and gums using air, powder and a warm stream of water.  It is so highly efficient teeth can have a gentle, deep cleaning treatment quicker and more pleasantly than a traditional scale and polish.

How airflow works

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

3 pieces of equipment are used depending on your personal needs:

Dental biofilm builds up on your teeth by bacteria left in the mouth. This is essentially a sticky film on your teeth. This is a main cause of dental decay, gum disease and implant infections. Severe gum infections (Periodontal Disease) can increase the risk of systemic diseases such as heart disease, lung diseases, arthritis, or diabetes.

Regular oral hygiene, combined with professional measures keeps biofilm under control – for a better oral AND systemic health. Here at The Courtyard Clinic, we believe treating your mouth will improve your general wellbeing too.

How do we approach GBT:

  1. Before removal the biofilm is always disclosed with a purple dye solution. Then biofilm and early calculus is easily removed with AIRFLOW and PERIOFLOW, both above and below the gum line. We don’t miss any visible biofilm. With the special handpiece we remove all bacteria off the teeth with the correct choice of airflow powder that’s right for you.
  2. If needed this is followed by debridement with PIEZON, a very gentle ultra-sonic cleaner using warm water.

Guided Biofilm Therapy is truly minimally invasive and reduces the need for hand and ultra-sonic instrumentation. It is safe, effective, and gentle to teeth and soft tissues, implants and your current dental work (crowns, bridges, implants, dentures, braces etc).

Who is Airflow particularly good for?

  • Efficient and time saving for patients of any age.
  • Nervous patients and young patients who can find treatment a challenge.
  • Highly stained teeth. AirFlow Dental Stain Removal works by using a fine jet of compressed air, water, and fine powder particles to remove extrinsic stain i.e. stain caused by tea, red wine, smoking, some mouth washes etc. Although this isn’t tooth whitening your teeth will feel brighter, whiter, smoother, and rejuvenated.
  • Sensitive teeth. Those who find ultrasonic scaling treatments very painful much prefer the pleasant AirFlow system by cleaning and polishing in one step. The water is warmed too to help sensitivity.
  • People wearing orthodontic appliances/denture or implant prostheses. The gentle cleaning mechanism means we can effectively clean these hard-to-reach surfaces without breaking them. We can do a wonderfully deep clean safely around brackets, wires, and removable devices.
  • Implants. The AirFlow Master’s ‘PerioFlow’ attachment is the only clinically supported implant cleaning method of its kind, it has been proven to decisively contribute to the long-term preservation of implants. It is gentle on implant surfaces, while traditional metal instruments have been shown to scratch implant surfaces and increase surface roughness. We care about the longevity of your previous dental work.
  • Gum disease. The PerioFlow handpiece has revolutionised the way we treat gum diseases. It is an advanced treatment for periodontal disease for sustained bacteria reduction. The PerioFlow’s flexible, rubber tip can reach the deepest pockets in the most comfortable, minimally invasive way, meaning a much more comfortable and effective treatment for our patients compared to traditional metal tips on handpieces.
