Endomotor Oral Prophylaxis and Polishing
Air Polishing


Air polishing is a procedure which uses air and water pressure to deliver a controlled stream of specially processed sodium bicarbonate powders in a slurry through the handpiece. Fine particles of powders are propelled by compressed air in a warm spray and directed onto the surfaces of the teeth. This pressurized jet of air, water and powder removes surface stains, plaque and other soft deposits such as food particles trapped in between the teeth.

Indications for the use of air polishing devices include general post-scaling prophylaxis, cleaning of deep fissures, interproximal cleaning, surface cleaning (stains and dental plaque removal), surface cleaning, tooth cleaning before fluoridation.
