Restore your sparkle with our Airflow treatment.
Airflow was introduced to Centre for Dentistry in 2017. Since then the treatment has been very popular with registered and non-registered patients. Treatment can be carried out by your regular dentist or your hygiene therapist. We caught up with our Dental Hygiene Therapist, Scott Walker at CFD Preston to ask him some questions about Airflow….
Who best benefits from Airflow?
- Moderate to heavy staining
- Crowns and bridges
- Overly crowded teeth
- Can help clean dentures
- Pre-teeth whitening
Can anyone have the Airflow treatment?
- Yes, though some advise over 15 years
What are the benefits of having a Scale and Polish and Airflow together?
- Airflow does not remove tartar and calculus – a scale and polish will.
Does the Airflow treatment hurt?
- There can be some sensitivity due to cold and fine particles but in general not painful.
Airflow is a stain removing treatment and great for anyone who drinks coffee, red wine, smokes or finds their teeth stain easily after eating certain food or drinking certain drinks.
Until the 31st October, CFD Preston are running a competition at the practice for non-registered patients. Those who book and attend scale and polish will be in with the chance to win an Airflow treatment. Even better if you like our Facebook page your name will be in the prize draw twice! The winner will be announced on 1st November.
Although Airflow does not whiten your teeth, if your teeth have staining which is yellow or brown, the treatment can remove this and take your teeth back to a natural colour – if you are interested in professional teeth whitening this is always a good time to start after this treatment.
Scott works at the Preston practice every Tuesday, you can also find him at our Leigh and Blackpool practices on other days. You can book an appointment by calling the practice team or book online or via our app. The charge for Airflow is £85, or if you are a member of our dental plans it is reduced to £76.50 as you receive 10% discount off the regular price.
