About the Program
While air polishing devices have been around for 3 decades, their use was generally restricted to supragingival stain removal. Like ultrasonics with micro tips, their use with finer size powder particles is evolving into the next treatment modality for preventative and periodontal therapy. What do you need to know about this latest technological application? How can you incorporate it into your clinical routine?
While micro ultrasonics are now considered standard of care in periodontal therapy, what else are you using them for? Is there really a difference between piezoelectric technology and magnetostrictive units? Is there any superior way to adapt ultrasonic instruments to the type of patient in your chair?
Power instruments create aerosols, do you know what can be done to mitigate them in terms of patient and operator safety?
Participants will learn (objectives of the course):
- Biofilm’s role in inflammatory disease/problems of inadequate removal
- Air polishing sub-gingival using glycine/erythritol powders
- Power implant maintenance protocols
- Contrasts in piezoelectric/magnetostrictive technologies
- Protocols of Guided Biofilm Therapy
- Aerosol control in the Covid-19 era
