Polishing is a staple of dental hygiene practice. Dental hygienists polish teeth with little thought about products or technique, and there have been a number of changes in polishing over the last few years, including finding benefits for air polishing.

Polishing with an air/water/powder slurry has been found to be less damaging to enamel, and as a replacement to traditional periodontal treatments. Find out what the science says about polishing and learn air polishing techniques to make the experience a pleasure to clinician and patient.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will learn:
1. The benefits of professional polishing
2. To observe polishing techniques using an air polishing unit
3. How to rate polishing compounds   ( disclaimer , AGD PACE Statement )
