EMS AIRFLOW® Dental Spa

Dental SpaThe World’s First Dental Spa is at Legana Dental!

We’re excited to bring the latest dental hygiene technology to our practice.

Our recently installed EMS AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master means that you can now experience stain-free, clean teeth without the pain! No more mess, no more nails scraping like noise on the blackboard and no more cold water. It’s time to give your teeth the best clean they’ve ever had!

AIRFLOW® is a revolutionary, non-contact form of dental maintenance and prevention. It projects a controlled stream of air, warm water and very fine sweet powder onto the tooth and in hard-to-reach areas to dislodge and remove food particles, plaque, discolouration and stains.

The high pressure water/air stream cleans your teeth much faster, efficiently and comfortably than the use of traditional pastes. Traditional methods are often messy, time consuming and can leave you with a not so clean taste in your mouth.
