Removing Biofilm from Dental and Implant Surfaces Without Damaging Those Structures.
Cementum conservation is fundamental for regeneration. Manual instruments, if used incorrectly, can remove many microns of hard tissue which may induce hypersensitivity. On implant surfaces stainless steel instruments and some plastic tips alter the titanium. This lecture will discuss a new approach called Guided Biofilm Therapy, which combines erythritol powder with piezoceramic instruments to remove biofilm minimally invasively whilst improving the clinical results.
