Air-Flow Polishing; The Most Advanced, Comfortable Dental Hygienist Treatment


In our continuous endeavour to bring you the very best in dental advancements, Dental Solutions invested in state-of-the-art AirFlow Swiss Technology, further enhancing our dental hygienist and warrington dental implant treatment services.

Very few dental practices can offer an AirFlow polishing treatment using this most advanced equipment. You can see the equipment above in use by our dental hygienist, Sarah Towns. The AirFlow Master allows us to achieve many things that more a basic polisher cannot, to benefit your oral health and brighten your smile.

AirFlow treatment is a pleasant and comfortable oral cleansing therapy using a combination of air, sodium bicarbonate or glycine powder and a gentle jet stream of water to clean the surfaces of your teeth. It takes just one appointment to leave your teeth feeling smooth, clean, polished and ready to smile with confidence. The AirFlow Master uses two handpieces; AirFlow and PerioFlow. The PerioFlow handpiece is the best gentle, non-surgical treatment of gum disease, and is also the only clinically supported implant cleaning method of its kind.
Before After

The ‘AirFlow’ Treatment is used for;

Stain removal

A firm favourite of those who have unsightly stains on the surface of their teeth. AirFlow uses air, sodium bicarbonate or glycine powder and a gentle jet stream of water to remove surface stains caused by tobacco, food and drink. It is kind to the tooth surface and will significantly improve the brightness and give you a noticeably sparkling fresh healthy mouth in an instant. You will immediately see and feel the difference.

Cleaning sensitive teeth

Those with sensitive teeth who find ultrasonic scaling treatments too uncomfortable often prefer the gentle AirFlow system. Although AirFlow cannot remove hard tartar, it removes plaque biofilm, stains and early calculus deposits – cleaning and polishing in one single procedure.

Cleaning braces and other orthodontic appliances

The soft and gentle spray of the airflow is the ideal solution for cleaning orthodontic appliances. The powder spray is comfortable and perfectly safe to use on bracket surfaces, removing any build-up of plaque or surface staining to the bracket or tooth.

The ‘PerioFlow’ Treatment is used for;

Implant cleaning

The Air-Flow 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.

Gum disease treatment

The PerioFlow handpiece has revolutionised the way we treat gum disease. 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.

Please get in touch to book an appointment, we look forward to your call.
Please note:

  • Patients suffering from upper respiratory tract infections, from chronic bronchitis or asthma cannot be treated with an air polishing device – the jet of air and powder could cause respiratory difficulties.

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
