Airflow, i.e. dental cleaning by sanding is normally used as an additional treatment after ultrasonic plaque removal, but it can also be used as a separate treatment if only minor discolorations are to be removed. Airflow sanding method effectively removes small particles of plaque and any built-up of discoloration that may remain on the teeth and are invisible to the naked eye. The advantage of using sanding is that it cleans the teeth very gently but very effectively from surface build-ups and discoloration.
