Air-Polishing with glycine powder.
Regarding the May-June 2009 issue of Access and the article on airpolishing, research on compounds for use in airpolishers, other than specially formulated sodium bicarbonate, is ongoing. In the spirit of "FYI", dental hygienists who use airpolishers should take note that many of the airpolisher manufacturers will not honor warranties on their units if any stain removal product is used in the airpolishing unit other than those specified by the manufacturer.
