Exploring Supragingival and Subgingival Air Polishing Technologies

Course Description:

This course will provide an overview of the management of biofilm through the use of low abrasive powders and supragingival/subgingival air polishing. Without subgingival disclosing solution, how do we as clinicians know we have removed the subgingival soft biofilm when treating patients? Technology has opened up the opportunity for clinicians to efficiently and comfortably remove soft deposit from subgingival areas in a minimally invasive way. Air polishing with low abrasive powders has been shown to be safe on dental structures and dental materials including implant surfaces.

Course Objectives:

At the end of the program, the participant will be able to:

• Discuss the complexity of pathogenic oral biofilm
• Explain the concept of guided biofilm therapy.
• Identify technologies that lead to improved clinical patient outcomes.

• Detail air polishing powder characteristics.
• Discuss scientific evidence supporting air polishing technologies.
