North Raleigh Periodontics is proud to introduce a state-of-the-art, new method of teeth cleaning to the practice. Air-flow Therapy quickly and painlessly targets and eradicates oral biofilm, bacteria that adheres to the surrounding surfaces of teeth above and below the gumline. Glycine, the naturally occurring amino acid used in Air-flow Therapy, inactivates bacteria and prevents it from reproducing.
Traditional cleaning devices such as the prophy jet or prophy cup take longer, don’t reach subgingival plaque as effectively, and may even harm gum tissue. Air-flow Therapy eradicates biofilm, reduces inflammation and prevents a wide range of diseases including gingivitis and periodontitis with unparalleled comfort and speed.
