Dr Marcel Donnet

Do you avoid using air polishing in your practice? You may have preconceived notions that the powders are only for supragingival use, the ingredients could be harmful to you and your patients and concerns about the aerosols. EMS are the innovators behind AIRFLOW® technology. AIRFLOW® is more advanced than any air-polishing technology you have tried in the past. It is the only technology to have a patented powder and be 100% backed by external scientific studies.

This webinar is designed to highlight the safety of AIRFLOW® with EMS AIRFLOW® powders. It will show that AIRFLOW® powders are proven to be safe, effective and efficient. The ingredients of AIRFLOW® powders will be examined in detail – why Erythritol? Is chlorhexidine in a pocket safe? What silica is included? Can it be harmful to my skin & lungs? Get all your questions answered!

With the growing body of external evidence supporting AIRFLOW® technology and EMS AIRFLOW® powders, clinicians should familiarise themselves with this research.
