Oral hygiene remains at the heart of routine dental visits and many practices have added Dental Air Polishers or air pressure polishers and polishing systems to their treatments. These systems use high-pressure air to spray special powders onto the patient's teeth. The abrasive action of the powder ensures high quality polishing. When choosing an air-supplied polisher, it is important to know which powders are compatible. It is also important to be properly trained in air polishing, to have the proper safety and personal protective equipment in the practice, and to select patients who are well suited for air polishing before starting treatment.
