What is AirFlow? What is it used for?

AirFlow is a professional dental cleaning system for pigmented/bacterial plaque and soft deposits. It cleans the surface of the tooth, interdental spaces, gingival pockets (up to 5 mm), and other hard-to-reach areas. It easily handles plaque that cannot be removed by simply brushing your teeth at home.

This technology was developed by E.M.S. Electro Medical Systems headquartered in Switzerland. It is widely used in the USA and Europe.

How it works

Compressed air, water, and abrasive sodium bicarbonate particles are directed at the tooth under high pressure. The particles remove plaque, soft deposits, and pigments from the enamel. Water and air rinse away soda and loose plaque. The dentist can adjust the airflow strength.


Advanced hydro-abrasive technology eliminates enamel damage (such as scratches or microcracks) by using large, rounded pellets. A powder with fine abrasive particles is used in cases where the enamel is sensitive.


AirFlow is recommended in the following cases:

  • Darkening of the enamel

  • Plaque accumulation on the teeth, between them, and in the gum pockets

  • Heavy smoking or tea/coffee consumption

  • Crowded teeth

  • Braces

  • Preparation for implant prosthetics

  • Periodontal disease or gum disease.

Did you know?

AirFlow is an excellent way to prevent tooth decay, pulpitis, and periodontitis. If plaque is not removed regularly, pathogenic bacteria will cause tooth decay and other complications (pulpitis, periodontitis).


  • Treatment takes 30 minutes

  • Eliminates bad breath

  • Does not damage the enamel and gums

  • Makes the enamel smooth and gives it a natural shade

  • Gives no allergic reactions and disinfects the oral cavity

  • Removes plaque from hard-to-reach areas (braces, interdental spaces, crowded teeth)

  • Prevents dental diseases

  • Provides visible result in one visit

AirFlow or Ultrasonic?

Comparison criteria AirFlow Ultrasonic
Purpose Removes plaque and soft deposits Removes hard deposits and tartar
How it works A mixture of water, air, and abrasive particles is sprayed under pressure onto the teeth to remove plaque from the enamel High-frequency waves break up plaque and calculus, which are washed away with a jet of water
Duration 30-40 minutes 40-60 minutes
Use with dentures Cleans the surface of the teeth with braces Cannot be used for braces or bridges
Enamel damage Gently cleans the tooth surface without scratching Microcracks may appear in the enamel, changing its structure

Which method is better?

Both methods have their advantages. The choice depends on the condition of the mouth, the complexity of the existing issues, and the presence of contraindications. The decision is made by the dentist after a visual examination of the oral cavity and an assessment of the clinical picture. A combination of both technologies is possible: hard plaque is removed by ultrasound, and soft plaque by AirFlow.

Stages of the procedure



The dentist examines the oral cavity and assesses the health of your teeth/gums, excluding the presence of contraindications.



The patient puts on a pair of glasses with a cap to protect their eyes and hair from abrasive particles. The dentist may administer local anesthesia if the patient has sensitive tooth enamel. A saliva ejector and a device to collect residual cleaning solution with fine particles are placed under the tongue.


Dental treatment

The dentist cleans each tooth with a high-pressure jet in a circular motion. The strength of the jet and the angle of the handpiece can be adjusted. The dentist makes sure that the jet does not hit the gums. Finally, they polish the teeth with a brush containing an abrasive paste to obtain a smooth surface.



To strengthen the enamel and reduce its sensitivity, the dentist treats the teeth with fluoride-based gel. They give the patient advice on how to maintain the result for a longer period of time.

What kind of equipment do we use?

At Svetlana Dental & Esthetic Center, we use the original Swiss AirFlow device for professional teeth cleaning, manufactured by EMS. This innovative device is reliable, safe, and comfortable to use.

Swiss AirFlow device


  • Do not eat for two hours after the procedure. After two hours, you can eat soft foods.
  • Eat warm foods and limit sweet, spicy, and sour foods.
  • Do not drink coffee/tea, smoke, or eat foods containing dyes during the first three hours after the procedure.
  • Brush your teeth 24 hours post-procedure. It is better to use a new toothbrush with soft bristles.
  • Use a mouthwash for good oral hygiene. If you have bleeding gums, you can use chamomile balm.
  • See your dentist for a checkup every six months.

No, it is not. AirFlow uses sodium bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, which is safe for human health. It does not damage tooth enamel. The granules are of optimal size/shape and do not scratch.

No, it can’t. Enamel is lightened by 1-2 shades by removing visible plaque from the tooth surface. AirFlow cannot change the natural color of your teeth. This can be done with Zoom 4 or KöR

  • AirFlow can only remove soft plaque and cannot deal with hardened dental tartar.
  • Slight discomfort may occur in patients with sensitive enamel (the temperature of the solution is slightly lower than the body temperature).
  • There may be some bleeding of the gums. This will disappear the next day.
