Here's how it works.

1

Application

The dentist will use the ProphyJet device to direct the air-water-powder mixture onto the surfaces of your teeth. The high-pressure stream gently removes stains and buildup.

2

Cleaning

The device is moved across each tooth, targeting stains and deposits on the front and back surfaces.

3

Rinsing

After the procedure, you'll rinse your mouth to remove any remaining particles.

How does ProphyJet help?

It's important to note that ProphyJet may not be suitable for everyone. Your dentist will evaluate your oral health condition and determine if ProphyJet is the appropriate cleaning method for you.

  • Effective stain removal

    ProphyJet is highly effective in removing surface stains on teeth caused by factors such as coffee, tea, tobacco, or certain foods. The combination of air, water, and sodium bicarbonate particles helps to gently and efficiently remove these stains, resulting in a brighter and whiter smile.

  • Gentle and non-invasive

    Unlike traditional scaling and polishing methods, ProphyJet is a gentle and non-invasive procedure. It does not involve the use of sharp instruments or scraping against the tooth surface, making it more comfortable for patients, especially those with sensitive teeth or gums.

  • Improved oral hygiene

    ProphyJet can help improve oral hygiene by removing plaque and biofilm from the tooth surfaces. The high-pressure stream of water and sodium bicarbonate particles can reach areas that may be difficult to clean with regular brushing and flossing alone, promoting better overall oral health.

  • Reduced risk of enamel damage

    ProphyJet is less likely to cause damage to the tooth enamel compared to traditional scaling methods. The sodium bicarbonate particles used in air polishing are gentle and do not erode the enamel, making it a safer option for maintaining oral health.

  • Enhanced comfort during dental cleanings

    Many patients find ProphyJet to be a more comfortable alternative to traditional scaling and polishing procedures. The combination of air, water, and sodium bicarbonate particles creates a pleasant sensation during the cleaning process, reducing discomfort and anxiety associated with dental cleanings.

  • Time-efficient

    ProphyJet can save time during dental cleanings. The efficient and thorough cleaning provided by the device allows dental professionals to complete the procedure more quickly compared to traditional methods, which can be beneficial for both patients and dental practitioners.

  • Suitable for various patients

    ProphyJet is suitable for a wide range of patients, including those with orthodontic appliances, dental implants, or other dental restorations. It can effectively clean around brackets, wires, and other dental hardware without causing damage.
