Stains can often be difficult to remove with the traditional rubber cup and paste that we have used forever in dentistry. A system called the prophy jet has been around awhile, but it has a harsh, salty, unpleasant taste.
We use a new system to air polish your teeth called Sylc. It is composed of a material called NovaMin (calcium sodium phosphosilicate)
Benefits of Sylc
- immediately desensitizes tooth- if your teeth are cold sensitive
- cleans and polish the toughest coffee/wine stains
- rebuilds tooth structure
- no awful taste
Melody will often start with this polish to make the rest of the appointment more comfortable. Our most sensitive patients have reported a great reduction in tooth sensitivity during their cleanings.
