Why Air-Flow Therapy Improves Gum Tissue

For a more comfortable and gentle hygiene cleaning experience, we use cutting edge AIRFLOW ONE technology that offers a vast array of benefits, setting it apart from traditional cleaning devices such as the prophy jet or prophy cup. Primarily, AIRFLOW One effectively targets and rapidly eradicates oral biofilm, a slimy, thin coating of bacteria that adheres to surrounding surfaces. Additionally, this new technology for hygiene and infection control therapy visits provides comfort to sensitive gums and teeth by allowing patients to choose the water temperature.

This system has multiple, beneficial advantages compared to a traditional cleaning:

NATURAL. The AIRFLOW One One utilizes Erythritol powder—a naturally occurring compound that regulates bacteria and promotes bone health—to reduce inflammation and prevent a wide range of diseases including gingivitis and periodontitis/peri-implantitis.

In comparing erythritol powder to traditionally used sodium-bicarbonate powder, research attests that erythritol powder is significantly less harmful to the gingival tissue than sodium-bicarbonate powder. Moreover, studies have demonstrated a noticeable increase in gingival health and a decrease in staining with the use of erythritol air polishing powder. Studies have demonstrated a noticeable increase in gingival health and a decrease in staining with the use of erythritol air polishing powder.

PAINLESS. SAFE The AIRFLOW One painlessly and swiftly removes plaque and biofilm, both from above and below the gum surface.

GENTLE. A warm, gentle flow of water, air, and Erythritol powder are directed into the pocket, quickly dispersing the sticky biofilm and accumulated plaque.

RAPID. For a thorough cleaning, the AIRFLOW One requires just 5 seconds per tooth, whereas other methods require 30-60 seconds per tooth. Not only does the speed of the cleaning decrease patient discomfort, but it also frees up more time to focus on other important components of periodontal health such as removing tenacious, hard bacterial deposits known as calculus.

EFFECTIVE. The AIRFLOW One effectively reduces pocket depths and inflammation and ultimately diminishes patients’ susceptibility to gum disease such as peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis

SAFE. The AIRFLOW One is safe to use subgingivally around implants to clean the area surrounding the restoration to prevent mucositis and peri-implantitis and preserve the implant.

On the whole, AIRFLOW One therapy offers a plethora of benefits with which traditional periodontal cleaning methods cannot compete. Where devices such as the prophy jet or prophy cup take longer to clean the mouth, cannot reach subgingival plaque effectively, and may harm gum tissue, the AIRFLOW One eradicates biofilm that destroys soft tissue and bone with unparalleled brevity and comfort. Furthermore, AIRFLOW One Therapy utilizes erythritol to safely inhibit bacterial growth, remove teeth stains, and promote whole-body health.
