At the Smile More Dental Clinics, we recommend visiting our hygienist every 6 months to remove plaque buildup and reinforce good cleaning habits.

Air Flow Therapy
Air flow is an effective prophylactic therapy using a machine that cleans and polishes teeth using a mix of water, fine powder particles and compressed air. With air flow, our hygienist is able to easily and efficiently remove plaque and stain even on the most hard-to-reach and delicate areas. Unlike traditional cleaning methods, air flow is less abrasive, and it provides a more comfortable experience for patients.
