STEP 1: ASSESSMENT

Your dental professional checks your teeth and gums.

STEP 2: DISCLOSING

Using a disclosing agent, dental plaque becomes visible on your teeth. This helps your dental professional to see where to clean.

STEP 3: MOTIVATION

Now your dental professional will have a good understanding of your overall oral health and can give you valuable tips  on how to improve your dental care at home.

STEP 4: AIRFLOW® - The Dental Spa

Get ready for the 'Dental Spa'. The combination of air, fine powder and warm water creates a spray that will gently exfoliate your teeth, without the device physically touching them. Imagine a spa treatment but for your mouth!

STEP 5: PERIOFLOW® (if necessary)

In case you suffer from Periodontitis (gum inflammation) or have implants, your dental professional will use this nozzle to clean more thoroughly.

STEP 6: PIEZON® (if necessary)

This No-Pain instrument will remove any remaining tartar on your teeth. It is minimally invasive, comfortable & highly efficient.*

STEP 7: FINAL CHECK

Time for your dental professional to do a final check if all biofilm & tartar is removed.

STEP 8: RECALL

Generally it is recommended to have a professional teeth clean every 6-12 months. Your dental professional will be able to let you know when exactly it will be time for you. Until then, enjoy that fresh & clean feeling of your teeth!

*In some instances, your dental professional may use PIEZON first if you have a substantial build up of tartar.
