Teeth Air Polishing

Monica Neely DDS SylcStains 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.
