Sandblasting is a safe and painless treatment. It is performed with a jet unit, i.e. a device which directs a jet of dental sand (cleaning powder) onto the teeth. The treatment removes plaque and stains from the dental surfaces. Sandblasting does not eliminate calculus, therefore ideally, it should be complemented by scaling.
The problem of dental plaque concerns mainly persons smoking tobacco, drinking vast quantities of strong tea and coffee or wearing an orthodontic appliance. After the treatment, the teeth gain lustre, seem whiter and shinier. The treatment is performed with the use of a jet unit which sprays into the patient’s mouth fine powder mixed with a specific amount of water. During the procedure, the powder is being sucked out from the patient’s mouth with the suction unit. The jet unit allows to reach all places in your mouth, also those with difficult access such as interdental gaps, thanks to which the treatment is very thorough. After the sandblasting a fluoride treatment it is recommended in order to strengthen the enamel.
