BIOFILM, A DIRTY WORD...

The picture to the left shows biofilm in symbiosis with a variety of bacteria - protected from the outside, proliferating on the inside.

BIOFILM, A DIRTY WORD
Before PERIO-FLOW®
AFTER PERIO-FLOW®
  • Microorganisms colonize the area and grow – their breeding ground develops its own protective layer. Bacteria then separate and colonize other areas
  • Bacteria under cover of biofilm are resistant to drug therapy
  • Immune defenses of the body are powerless – to subsequently prevent a bacterial invasion, the body triggers a process which breaks down bone tissue
  • Implant sites are equally affected by biofilm – peri-implantitis results in implant loss

The AIR-FLOW® System is a method of professional mechanical tooth cleaning for selective removal of plaque and stains from all tooth surfaces using EMS devices. It delivers a controlled stream of fine powder particles to the tooth surface through water spray and compressed air. While being more efficient and cost-effective than traditional methods, this procedure also delivers higher patient comfort.

Periodontal disease management was considered off limits for air polishing but is now a reality, even in deep areas, thanks to the latest developments brought by EMS. With the new PERIO-FLOW® nozzle and the new AIR-FLOW® Powder PERIO, the Original AIR-FLOW® Method now reaches the deepest periodontal pockets and delivers greater efficacy and more patient comfort than conventional curettes or other instruments.
