Airflow Stain Removal in Surrey Quays

This innovative dental hygiene treatment will gently lift and remove stains from your teeth using nothing but air, water and fine powder particles. This allows us to remove all traces of plaque and tartar from the tooth surface, without the need for tools that directly touch the teeth. You’ll enjoy a healthy and brighter smile and fresh breath.

Airflow Stain Removal explained

A traditional scale and polish uses small tools and instruments to scrape plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth. While this is very effective, some patients can find the treatment uncomfortable, particularly if they are sensitive to particular sensations and noises.

With Airflow Stain Removal, we use a fine mist made up of water, air and powder particles to gently remove surface staining from your teeth without the need for direct contact. This results in a thorough cleaning that is gentle on your teeth and gums. You'll also enjoy fresher breath and your teeth may look brighter and whiter after treatment.

Who should consider Airflow Stain Removal?

If you're thinking about visiting the dental hygienist, you might be interested in this treatment type. It's also very effective for lifting surface staining before you start other cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening. Some patients even find that this stain removal treatment is sufficient for achieving their aesthetic goals, and teeth whitening isn't required. 

You should also consider this treatment if you have sensitive teeth and are worried about the sensations you might feel during a traditional scale and polish. While the treatment should never be painful, some people don't like the direct contact and find Airflow Stain Removal more comfortable. 

We’re accepting new NHS patients. Contact the practice today.

  • Excellent Practice. Excellent doctors. Had an appointment with Mr Reuben. I'm terrified of being in the dentist's chair but he's one of the best at his work! Made me very comfortable. Also shout out to the practice manager, she really goes above and beyond for the patients and the practice itself.

  • Couldn't express enough gratitude towards the team here. I needed a safe pair of hands with my #8 Incisor, plus the heavy-woes close behind my dilemma. Dialling in to SDDP, I was received by Djoan, who was attentive and patient with my anxiety. She really was altruistic over the phone and put me at ease right away. Getting an appointment is never easy in the land of today but I felt reassured I was made a priority as best she could. Representing is Djoan and also Roshni, whom was totally ahead of the game and had forseen an appropriate approach to my following visits necessary to regain as much of my Hollywood E-lister smile as possible.Dr Safari answered my doubts with professionalism, great knowledge and clarity. Rebooking before leaving was painless as Djoan and Roshni had effortlessly lined up my appointment options so I only had to mutter, "that one". With Ivana managing, perpetual assurance is imminent.
