AIRFLOW® system

Guided Biofilm Therapy
  • No more rubber cups.
  • No more gritty paste.
  • Less scraping.
  • Superior comfort.
  • Superior clean.
Biofilm, stain and young calculus are effortlessly removed using the AIRFLOW® system. Using this method will help to restore and preserve the enamel as well as minimize the need for hand and power instruments. This technology helps to better clean around implant without the risk of scraping or damaging the implant prothesis, abutment or crown structure. The perioflow tip is used to comfortably treat and control periodontal disease by using a minimally invasive technology supra and sub gingivally. Less scraping, improved comfort and more thorough cleaning are a few things to look forward to at your next hygiene appointment. Get ready to look forward to visiting the dentist!

  • Dental biofilm is the main etiologic factor for caries, periodontal and peri-implant infections. Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis or diabetes.
  • Guided Biofilm Therapy is the systematic, predictable solution for dental biofilm management in professional prophylaxis using state of the art AIRFLOW® And PERIOFLOW® technologies. It is proven by scientific evidence.
  • Guided Biofilm Therapy consists of treatment protocols based on individual patient diagnosis and risk assessment in order to achieve optimal results. The treatment is given in the least invasive way, with the highest level of comfort, safety and efficiency.

iTero® Scanner

The iTero® scanning system enhances the planning and execution of various dental procedures. With the iTero® scanner, we are able to take high-quality digital scans of your teeth and mouth, which are almost instantly displayed on our monitor so we can plan an array of dental procedures with more ease and precision. As an added benefit, our patients are also able to view the detailed scans of their mouth and teeth, and ask any questions they may have. With the help of the high-quality scans, our team is able to answer your questions more easily and you can have peace of mind that you are receiving the best treatment possible.

The iTero® scanner has become an invaluable tool in the Invisalign process. Invisalign requires taking dental impressions of a patient’s mouth to create customized aligner trays. Traditionally, dental impressions are taken using rubber molds, which are often described as messy and uncomfortable by patients. The iTero® scanner eliminates the inconvenience of molds and enhances the precision of the Invisalign process. Once the scans are taken, the iTero® system creates a 3D map of your mouth, which is used to map out treatment.

In addition to Invisalign, the iTero® scanner can also be used to plan an array of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures, including dental crowns, bridges, dentures, porcelain veneers and dental implants.
