  • Use of traditional polishing methods, i.e. a rubber-cup with prophylaxis paste, has been shown to remove the fluoride-rich outer layer of the enamel and cause significant loss of cementum and dentin over time. (
  • Unlike conventional mechanical polishing (handpiece with rubber-cup and prophylaxis paste) used to polish teeth, the air polisher uses a light handpiece similar to an ultrasonic scaler to generate a slurry of pressurized air, abrasive powder and water to remove plaque biofilm and stains (Figures 1 , 2 ). (

  • The revision included a new literature search of databases PubMed ® /MEDLINE and Google Scholar using the terms: dental prophylaxis, toothbrushing, professional tooth cleaning, fluoride uptake, and professional dental prophylaxis, limited to children, the last 10 years, and English language. (
  • Numerous reports have shown plaque and pellicle are not a barrier to fluoride uptake in enamel and, consequently, there is no evidence of a difference in caries rates or fluoride uptake in subjects who receive rubber cup coronal polish or a toothbrush coronal polish before fluoride treatment. (
  • Tooth polishing has little therapeutic value and is usually done as a cosmetic procedure after debridement and before fluoride application. (
  • This outermost fluoride rich layer of enamel is removed when tooth polishing is provided. (
  • The mineral components of saliva and polishing pastes containing fluoride can assist in remineralizing this outer layer. (

  • Dental tape is used for polishing the proximal surfaces of teeth that are inaccessible to other polishing instruments. (
  • The enamel surface is strong enough to withstand repeated tooth polishing, but it should be avoided on newly erupted teeth, exposed root surfaces and areas of demineralization. (
  • We show herein that dental implant surfaces covered with a bifunctional peptide film kill bacteria. (
  • To enhance their integration with the bones of the jaws, the surfaces of titanium dental implants are modified to make them hydrophilic, high energy, and microtextured. (
  • The presence of mature biofilms on dental implant surfaces drives local inflammatory responses in the adjacent soft and hard tissues (peri-implantitis), which leads to pathological loss of bone and the formation of a saucer shaped bone defects. (
  • This chapter examines the unique challenges posed by biofilms formed on highly complex dental implant surfaces, which are difficult to access for cleaning, and easily damaged by conventional cleaning approaches. (
  • While early dental implants had simple threaded forms and plain surfaces which were unmodified after milling, almost all modern dental implants have surface features which increase the surface area and surface energy, enhancing the adhesion of blood, matrix proteins, and human cells. (
  • The purpose of the scaling and polishing is basically to leave the surfaces of the teeth clean and smooth so that bacteria are unable to stick to them and you have a better chance of keeping the teeth clean during your regular home care. (
  • Selective Polishing  Selective polishing is a procedure in which only those teeth or surfaces with stain are polished. (
  • Extrinsic Stains  Occur on the external surfaces of the teeth and may be removed by scaling and/or polishing. (
