Air-jet Systems Are All The Rage In Dental Teeth Cleaning And Polishing Equipment

Author : Stephen Daniels

Advances in home dental care have greatly improved our ability to keep our teeth feeling fresher than ever before between visits to the dentist. However, all the advanced sonic and electronic toothbrushes in the world can't come close to matching the kind of necessary teeth cleaning and teeth polishing that a dentist can do. No matter how diligently we brush and floss at home, there are still going to be deposits on our teeth that can only be removed with a dentist's special cleaning tools. And it turns out that some of these tools have seen some high-tech and space age improvements recently, resulting in treatments that are quicker, cleaner and less intrusive than before.

The best of these new systems are all manner of tools for air polishing your teeth. These tools, made by many manufacturers were first touted as an alternative to the traditional rotating rubber-cup and abrasive paste method previously used to polish your teeth after a cleaning. Now dentists find that these tools are great for both cleaning and polishing. These tools employ water and baking soda applied at high pressure. This surprisingly gentle system easily removes most kinds of plaque, and to the delight of many patients, even helps to remove some of the more common types of outer-tooth staining such as those caused by smoke and certain types of food and drinks.

Quickly gaining popularity among dentists and patients alike, having your teeth polished with an air jet system is considered to be more effective than the old traditional methods (also known as prophylaxis). One of the things that patients are finding they like about this new method is that it doesn't use the previously mentioned paste, there is no aftertaste, and they leave the dentist's office with their mouths feeling cleaner than ever before.

Air jets can be used for more than just cleaning and stain removal. Dentists are starting to recommend this new procedure before bonding treatments (such as veneers and bridges) and before braces are attached. Before whitening can be done, many dentists believe that polishing provides the perfect clean slate.

Though these treatments are great, you should note that they only remove smooth deposits, and are unable to remove more than stains on the outside of the tooth. In order to remove harder deposits (known as "calculus"), and to clean under the gum line, your dentist will still need to use manual scraping tools.

Regardless of the method you and your dentist agree upon, regular cleanings are crucial. It is recommended that you visit your local dentist twice a year. Dentistry is one area where regular routine cleanings will usually prevent the need for much more unpleasant procedures.
