AIRFLOW ProphyJet Therapy: The Best Choice for Removing Biofilm

AIRFLOW is an advanced air polishing treatment that uses a combination of air, water, and specially formulated powders to disperse and eliminate biofilm. Using a small handheld device, our dental professional will administer a controlled, pressurized stream of fluid to your teeth and gums. As the mixture is applied, it removes surface stains, plaque, tartar, and bacterial or food deposits stuck in, around, and between the teeth. It can also be sprayed beneath the gumline or implants to eradicate disease-causing bacteria without harming the gingival tissue.

The Benefits of AIRFLOW Therapy

There are many advantages to AIRFLOW therapy over traditional methods of periodontal cleaning, including:

  • AIRFLOW is fast On average, professional cleaning using traditional instrumentation takes between 30 and 60 seconds per tooth. With AIRFLOW, that time is reduced to 5 seconds. It can also help speed up other periodontal procedures. For example, when AIRFLOW is used prior to a scaling treatment, the entire procedure is completed an average of 8 to 12 minutes faster than without it. That means less time in the dentist’s chair for you.
  • AIRFLOW is comfortable Older air polishing treatments have had a reputation for being messy, uncomfortable, and sometimes painful. But patients report AIRFLOW therapy is a far more pleasant experience. A soft, warm stream of water gently hits your gums and tooth surfaces, providing maximum effectiveness with minimal discomfort.
  • AIRFLOW is versatile It can often be difficult to efficiently clean hard-to-reach spots or delicate areas of the mouth. AIRFLOW, however, is safe and effective on virtually any oral surface. In addition to tooth enamel and gum tissue, AIRFLOW can be used on orthodontia, implants, and restorations.

AIRFLOW promotes periodontal health

The powders used in AIRFLOW treatments not only remove stains and biofilm, but they’re also specially formulated to inhibit bacterial growth in the future. Erythritol powder used in AIRFLOW therapy is minimally abrasive, meaning it is significantly less harmful to gum tissue than coarser powders such as sodium bicarbonate. In addition, erythritol inactivates bacteria to stop it from reproducing, which helps prevent the formation of gum disease, such as gingivitis or periodontitis
