AIRFLOW® POWDERS

What's Fact & What's Fiction?

As dental professionals, it is simply amazing how many different instruments, materials and chemical components surround you in your room. Yet, you know exactly when and how to use a particular restorative material, a certain bur or a specific curette. But it is the same with air-polishing powders?

Dr Annamaria Sordillo discusses in this webinar what you need to know about powders, what is available on the market today and why powders’ chemical and physical properties are important to you and your patients.

AIRFLOW® PLUS powder is the first high-tech powder that removes biofilm and soft deposits in a minimally-invasive way. PLUS powder is safe and effective for use on enamel, dentine, soft tissue, restorations, orthodontic appliances and implant surfaces. The Erythritol-based molecule provides a unique indication for both supragingival and sub-gingival use. With a size of only 14 microns, AIRFLOW® PLUS powder represents the most finely grained particle in dentistry and ensures a truly comfortable and enjoyable experience for both patients and clinicians.

"AIRFLOW® PLUS powder is my go-to for gentle biofilm removal for people of all ages.  With over 22 applications, this minimally invasive powder allows me to provide a comfortable experience for even my most sensitive patients, effectively and efficiently.  The ability to use the powder subgingivally has given me the confidence to know that I am removing biofilm thoroughly while protecting tooth structures, restorations and prosthetics. Stain removal from exposed root surfaces is no longer a chore, implant maintenance is effortless and orthodontic patients are a breeze!  Best of all, my patients are happy with how easy their appointments are and look forward to their next visit!"

AIRFLOW® CLASSIC sodium bicarbonate powder has just been revamped with a new formula! The new CLASSIC powder is equally as effective at removing biofilm and stains and features a reduced grain size of 40 microns to maximize patient comfort.

"AIRFLOW® Classic Comfort Powder is an unbeatable weapon against serious supragingival stain. For patients that have thick and tenacious stain, AIRFLOW® Classic Comfort Powder is the answer. Following a full mouth prophylaxis with AIRFLOW® PLUS Powder, I change over to the Classic Comfort Powder to remove any resistant stain, from sound enamel surfaces.

I like to warn the patient of the powder change and to expect a new flavour as we target the heavy-duty stain and grime. The AIRFLOW® Classic Comfort Powder works quickly to dissipate excessively stubborn stain and to bring the sparkle and shine we all love from an AIRFLOW® Dental Spa treatment.”

THE DANGERS OF USING NON-EMS POWDERS

When using so-called "compatible" powders or copy tips from third parties you can damage your patients' teeth as well as your EMS handpieces.

All EMS instruments, handpieces and the NO-PAIN electronic module were developed and made by EMS to work with each other.

See what can happen to your AIRFLOW® handpiece if using a non-EMS powder.

Please note that if your device or handpiece is damaged due to non-EMS powders or tips, your warranty will be void and a repair cannot be guaranteed.
