Air polishing is a procedure that uses air & water pressure to deliver a controlled stream of specially processed powders in a slurry through the handpiece nozzle. Fine particles of powders are propelled by compressed air in a warm spray and directed onto the surfaces of the teeth. This pressurized jet of air, water, and powder removes surface stains, plaque, and other soft deposits such as food particles trapped in between the teeth.
Airflow Therapy is the systematic, predictable approach for dental biofilm management using state of the art AIRFLOW® technologies
Dental biofilm is the main etiologic factor for caries, periodontal and peri-implant infections. Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis, or diabetes.
Regular oral hygiene, combined with professional measures keeps biofilm under control – for better oral and systemic health.
