Dental biofilm, commonly known as plaque, is the yellowish layer of bacteria that can build up on teeth over time. Made up of billions of bacteria that can cause dental decay, gingivitis, periodontitis & peri-implantitis. Keeping biofilm under control is an important part of preventative dental care. Biofilm can increase the risk of cardiovascular & respiratory disease, diabetes & arthritis.
Good oral hygiene can prevent most biofilm from forming, but even with regular brushing and cleaning between the teeth, some biofilm may still remain. Over time this can harden into scale, which should to be removed by a dental professional.
Air Flow ® uses a fine spray of warmed water & Erythritol PLUS powder to gently deep clean the tooth surface above and below the gum line. This minimally invasive technology is safe to use on all oral surfaces & difficult to reach places: enamel, dentine, soft tissues, restorations, orthodontic appliances & implants.
Erythritol PLUS powder has the finest particle size (14microns) used in dentistry, much finer than the paste used to polish your teeth. It is more thorough and comfortable and gentler on tooth surfaces than traditional methods resulting in less bleeding & sensitivity.
