Thank you to Clare the hygienist at Bethcar Dental practice for your amazing care today. Not only did Clare do an amazing job with my teeth (scrape and polish), she also provided excellent education and was genuinely interested in caring for my teeth and gum health. Clare was very warm and friendly but also extremely professional and put me at ease. The receptionists were also extremely welcoming. I would definitely recommend Bethcar Dental Practice

I would not hesitate in recommending Bethcar Dental Practice. The service my family and I have received has been outstanding. The ladies on reception are very helpful and friendly and go above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. Dr Laura Wedge and her assistant are very professional. They have provided excellent dental and aesthetic services. Laura’s calm and patient manner helped to calm my anxiety and gave me the confidence to ahead with procedures, and she always does a wonderful job. I was particularly impressed when I received a reply to a message sent on social media on a Sunday evening to arrange an emergency appointment for my daughter the following morning. Thank you Bethcar Dental!

I have been registered with this practice for a number of years and cannot praise them enough. The receptionists are always polite, helpful and informative and the staff are second to none. I have recently had some extensive work carried out by my Dentist (Laura Wedge) and I cannot fault my experience in any way. Both Laura and her dental nurse (Natalie) are highly competent at what they do and are also fun to be in the company of which actually makes going to the dentist a pleasure. I would highly recommend Bethcar Dental to anyone seeking a dentist as there are none better in my opinion

We have just joined the practice after numerous let downs from our previous dentist. WOW! We were greeted by lovely,smiling receptionists and a friendly environment. When we saw our dentist (Laura Wedge),both her and the nurse were so kind to our children and letting them see everything and explaining it all. They were patient and made it all fun. My husband and I left feeling reassured we were receiving the best dental care and we both had a very clear understanding of what was what. I cannot recommend enough!

Treatment Benefits

Benefits Of Airflow

Airflow tooth polishing is ideal for removing stains from teeth caused by food, drink, genetics and lifestyle. It is a gentle treatment, making it ideal for anyone with sensitive teeth or those who are nervous about dental treatments. Due to its sensitive approach, Airflow is also designed to be used as frequently as required without causing damage to teeth.

Effective Polishing & Stain Removal

Airflow tooth polishing is known to be more effective at cleaning teeth than more traditional methods. The water jets not only clean the surfaces of the teeth and remove plaque build up, but also reach into the periodontal pockets (the spaces around the teeth), to remove bacteria and help prevent gum disease.

Fast Treatment Time

Airflow tooth polishing removes plaque build-up more quickly and easily than other forms of scaling and polishing methods – it is a uniquely fast treatment. Depending on your plaque and stain build up, it takes on average between 20 to 30 minutes for the entire appointment, which is up to three times faster than traditional cleaning procedures.

Gentle On Sensitive Teeth & Gums

The process of using water, sodium bicarbonate and air pressure to clean teeth makes Airflow tooth polishing a much gentler process than traditional methods. As a result, it is ideal for sensitive teeth and gums.

Non-Invasive Polishing Treatment

When we talk about Airflow tooth polishing being non-invasive, it’s because unlike traditional treatments there are no scraping tools used to remove hardened plaque. There is no direct contact between the instruments and your teeth, which some clients find uncomfortable.

Suitable For Frequent Application

As Airflow tooth polishing is gentle on teeth and gums it can be administered as frequently as required to maintain the health and appearance of teeth. For most clients, twice a year or once every six months is enough. Some people may only require it once a year, and others may benefit from up to six treatments annually, depending on the overall condition of your teeth, general health and family history of gum disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Airflow tooth polishing for?

Airflow tooth polishing is for anyone looking to keep their teeth looking and feeling their best. Perfect for stain removal, particularly from tea, coffee and alcohol, genetic susceptibility or staining caused by medications, it’s a contemporary update on a traditional polishing treatment, designed to be more gentle whilst still delivering excellent results.

What's involved in Airflow tooth polishing?

Airflow tooth polishing uses a gentle jet stream of water and air to clean teeth and gums. As a result, it is more comfortable than traditional tools and is safe for the surface of the tooth. This is followed by the use of a non-toxic sodium bicarbonate powder to polish the teeth, which is lighter than traditional pastes, and water to complete the treatment. The efficacy of Airflow tooth polishing means that it is a fairly fast treatment lasting approximately 30 minutes. 

Is Airflow tooth polishing right for me?

Airflow is suitable for just about all of our clients, and we highly recommend it at least once a year. We will discuss the use of polishing treatments as part of your dental hygiene plan when you join Bethcar Dental, and we will review your requirements at each check-up.


 Suitable for adults and children

The comfortable and minimally invasive nature of Airflow tooth polishing makes it suitable for children as well as adults.


Anyone concerned about stained teeth

We all get staining on our teeth over the course of the year, whether it’s in the hard to reach places behind our teeth or as a result of daily food and drink intake. This treatment is recommended for everyone, especially those predisposed to staining. 


Anyone looking to maintain optimum oral health

Tooth polishing is recommended at least once a year as part of a healthy oral hygiene programme, helping to minimise the buildup of plaque and help prevent gum disease. 


 Nervous dental patients

A gentler approach to stain removal than traditional scale and polish treatments, Airflow tooth polishing is ideal for anyone who is anxious about visiting the dentist. It provides a positive experience and a high standard of preventative dental healthcare to minimise the likelihood of other dental interventions down the line.


Patients with sensitive teeth

Airflow is recommended by our dentists because it’s a gentle approach to polishing teeth. However, as pressure can also be adjusted and no instruments come into direct contact with the teeth, it’s also highly suitable for clients with sensitive teeth, minimising the chances of any discomfort.


 Suitable for crowns, veneers, bridges or implants

As with sensitive teeth, Airflow tooth polishing is also suitable for anyone with crowns, veneers, bridges or implants due to the minimally invasive approach and adaptable pressure.
