While most patients visit their dental hygienist twice per year, it does not mean that this is how often they should get a dental cleaning.
Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry knows that each patient is different. Therefore each patient is given the exact treatment plan to restore their dental and overall health. A perfect example of the technology used in our facility is that of the AIRFLOW Master Piezon® oral hygiene tool. Our facility is equipped with the best. We continue to invest back into the business to provide our patients with the most advanced solutions for their smiles.
What is the AIRFLOW Master Piezon® device?
Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates are pleased to provide patients with the AIRFLOW Master Piezon® device. This pain-free instrument is used to provide an effective way to target calculus, plaque, tartar, and bacteria. The device administers compressed air along with water and fine powder particles that can be used to polish the surface of the teeth while also effectively removing debris. These powders, including glycine-based powder and sodium bicarbonate, are used during polishing as they are abrasive enough to clean below the gum line into pockets that may have formed between the gum tissue and the teeth. At the same time, the device can address discoloration and soft deposits on the teeth with a single pass of the handpiece. Also, this Swiss-made device offers additional tools and instruments for treating stains and removing plaque from the teeth and gums without injuring the soft tissues or teeth.
Why choose the AIRFLOW Master Piezon® device?
The EMS AIRFLOW Master Piezon® instruments are highly desirable in today’s dental practices. This equipment makes air-polishing of the teeth more comfortable and more efficient while ensuring patient comfort throughout the process. The device doesn’t make noise and eliminates the anxiety-ridden sound of the dentist’s drill. The AIRFLOW Master Piezon® does not cause any pain or discomfort and can help patients feel more at ease in the treatment chair during their procedures.
Who is a candidate for treatment with the AIRFLOW Master Piezon® instruments?
All patients are a good fit for this treatment method. We recommend it over more traditional techniques of cleaning the teeth at recall appointments. The device is comfortable and provides the best possible cleaning. At the same time, it can wash away bacteria that may be contributing to conditions such as periodontal disease or tooth decay, ensuring optimum results in just one visit to our practice.
Why are dental cleanings important?
There is a reason why our dental staff will encourage Clearwater, FL area patients to consider the benefits of a thorough dental cleaning.
- Provide our team the opportunity to remove plaque, tartar, calculus, and bacteria from the surfaces of the teeth and gums
- Allow our dental hygienists to perform a physical evaluation of the teeth and gums and notify the dentist of any specific concerns
- Ensure the teeth are thoroughly clean and free from bacteria
- Remove surface stains and provide a finished, polished surface by the end of treatment
While patients must take the time to care for their smiles between dental visits, some patients cannot get the same thorough cleaning as they can with our dental team. Additionally, these routine visits allow our professionals to spot the early development of tooth decay or periodontal disease, which can impact one’s oral health. With early diagnosis and intervention, most patients can avoid costly, permanent problems that can develop with untreated conditions such as these. Routine dental visits with our team also help patients to build a trusting bond and relationship with the dentist and staff. Every appointment is a positive experience thanks to our pain-free instruments and our gentle approach to dental care at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry.
Is the EMS AIRFLOW Master Piezon® useful for periodontal disease?
Absolutely! Patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, will often have bacteria in the mouth that require cleaning and disinfection. They often experience bacteria build-up in the pockets between the gum tissue and the teeth. These pockets contribute to the advancement of periodontal disease and can be treated using this device. The AIRFLOW Master Piezon® has a special PERIOFLOW handpiece that is designed to remove biofilm, plaque, and bacteria effectively. In addition to treating the teeth and gums with this device when a patient has developed periodontal disease, our dental staff may suggest the use of antibiotics to control the infection. Medicines may be oral prescription medication taken to treat the condition from the inside out or may be applied directly to the problem areas to combat bacteria. When patients combine PERIOFLOW treatment, antibiotics, and routine visits with the dentist, they can improve the health of their smiles while fighting infections. Regular cleanings also provide patients with a thorough cleaning that they cannot get at home with brushing and flossing alone. When patients visit their dentist every six months for a cleaning and evaluation, they are taking the proper steps towards a healthier smile!
Why should periodontal disease be treated?
Without treatment, periodontal disease can become extensive and damaging. The condition starts in the gums and can cause pockets to develop, harboring bacteria that continue the infection. Patients with periodontal disease will lose gum tissue, bone, and natural teeth. The same goes for cavities. These holes in the surfaces of the tooth, if left untreated, can cause tooth loss. The dental cavities may go deep into the tooth and reach the dental pulp inside, causing an infection. Any dental problem left undiagnosed and untreated can potentially cause permanent damage to the smile. With routine visits, patients can avoid these expensive issues and instead address issues as they arise.
