Air Force Inc introduces Dental Air Force, a new tooth-whitening system for the home. According to the company, the results are similar to those you get from professional bleaching in a dental office. Using air, cleaner, and hydrogen peroxide, the appliance power-washes between teeth and around the gums.

The company recommends that patients use Dental Air Force twice per day for 2 minutes instead of brushing and flossing. It provides whitening over a gradual period of time without making teeth sensitive. By incorporating whitening into the daily regimen of cleaning teeth, patients can brush, floss, and whiten their teeth at the same time, according to the company.

The system is FDA-approved for marketing, costs less than professional bleaching, and can be used by multiple members of a household. The system is particularly effective for periodontal disease, orthodontic appliances, crowns, bridges, and implants, according to the company. The History Channel and Invent Now Inc (The National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation) awarded the Dental Air Force an Honorable Mention as an exceptional invention in the 2007 Modern Marvels Invent Now Challenge.
