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.
