04 AIRFLOW®

Removes biofilm, stains, colorations and young calculus on natural teeth, restorations and implants. Cleans and polishes in one single procedure.

Ensuring the elimination of the main etiological cause of both tooth-decay, gingivitis, periodontitis, mucositis & peri-implantitis. Using the Erythritol PLUS powder, the Airflow supragingival handpiece is able to remove Biofilm in the sulcus area & shallow pockets up to 4mm, on the tongue and gingiva as well as on the palate - all in a minimal-invasive way for maximum patient comfort. The CLASSIC COMFORT powder is able to remove remaining heavy stains & pigmentations caused by high intakes of coffee, red wine and smoking.

With rubber cups and polishing paste it is impossible to clean:

•    Interdental spaces, especially in patients with mal-aligned teeth

•    Exposed tooth necks

•    Pits and fissures

•    Orthodontics brackets

TOOTH ENAMEL SURFACE WITH RESIDUAL BIOFILM BEFORE CLEANING.

The enamel prisms of the natural tooth enamel are easily recognizable – The photo shows the remnants of the bacteria killed off with sodium hypochlorite.

TOOTH ENAMEL AFTER POLISHING WITH LOW-ABRASIVE PASTE.

The vital enamel prisms have been polished away. Pastes have caused scratches. Biofilm has been spread into natural crevices. Overall abrasive pastes cause a loss of valuable enamel. No improvement of the dental surface.

TOOTH ENAMEL AFTER CLEANING WITH AIRFLOW® POWDER PLUS.

The biofilm has been completely removed with AIRFLOW®. The surface is clean down to the pores. No abrasion. The enamel prisms remain intact and the surface is perfectly smooth. The tongue no longer feels any roughness and there is no need for polishing with (abrasive) pastes. This saves enamel – and treatment time.
