DESCRIPTION

The AIR-FLOW Master Piezon® contains three technologies in one device: AIR-FLOW (for heavy stain removal and supragingival biofilm removal), PERIO-FLOW (for subgingival biofilm removal) and Piezon (for ultrasonic scaling). It is easy to switch between AIR-FLOW and PERIO-FLOW handpieces and powder chambers to deliver a complete stain, biofilm and plaque removal treatment. The Piezon technology features an LED handpiece for better vision surrounding the treatment site, and the internal feedback control senses when a higher power is needed to remove deposits and adjusts accordingly – 200x per second! The convenience of 3 different technologies in one unit makes the AIR-FLOW Master Piezon® the ultimate prophylaxis and periodontal disease management device. Design Features

    Smooth touch panel surface for simple cleaning and disinfection.Sleek user interface offers easy adjustment of power and water delivery.Ergonomic handpieces for working comfort and precision for the clinician.

FEATURES

  • Smooth touch panel surface for simple cleaning and disinfection
  • Easy handling, cleaning and refilling of the powder chambers
  • Sleek user interface offers easy adjustment of power and water delivery
  • Ergonomic handpieces for working comfort and precision for the clinician
  • Intelligent feedback control technology senses when higher power is needed to remove deposit and adjusts accordingly
PIEZO REFERENCE
CHARACTERISTICS OF TIP MOVEMENT
The smooth linear movement generated by piezoelectric systems
creates a stroke pattern that is similar to hand instrumentation.
Adapting the lateral surface of the piezo tip against the tooth surface
(similar to a hand instrument) will increase clinical efficiency
ESSENTIALS OF POWER DISPERSION
• Most of the energy is dispersed at the point of tip (1).
• The lateral surfaces of the tip (2) are moving in a linear pattern, similar to the stroke of
a bladed hand instrument.
• Adaptation of this lateral surface provides the most efficient deposit removal.
• Adapt the terminal 2–3 mm of tip for optimal performance.
• When concave front or convex back surfaces (3) are adapted to the tooth surface,
the instrument will chatter against the surface rather than effectively remove deposit.
PIEZO TIP ADAPTATION
• Adapt the lateral surface to the tooth for optimal performance.
• Maintain tip angulation near zero degrees — parallel to tooth surface.
• To minimize the risk of root damage, never adapt tip at a 90˚ angle.
• Use little or no lateral pressure and let the tip do the work for you.
• When concave front or convex back surfaces are adapted to the tooth surface, the
instrument will chatter against the surface rather than effectively instrument.
SENSORY OBSERVATIONS
• Smooth vibration enhances tactile sense for instrumentation.
• The smooth motion of the tip is an excellent option for patients with root sensitivity.
• Piezo tip vibration is very smooth and quiet when adapted correctly on a lateral surface.
• Deposits are pulverized, resulting in a slurry of debris that is visible in the water at the
back of the mouth.
• Calculus is generally not removed in big chunks as commonly seen during
magnetostrictive instrumentation.
AIR-FLOW® PERIO TECHNOLOGY
• Effective disruption of biofilm in periodontal pockets
leading to a sustained reduction in bacteria, helping prevent
periodontitis or peri-implantitis
• Uniform turbulence of air-powder mixture and water due to
patented PERIO-FLOW® nozzle prevents soft-tissue emphysema
SUBGINGIVAL PROPHYLAXIS – AGAINST BIOFILM
• On the subgingival border area – disrupt biofilm with the AIR-FLOW®
handpiece and AIR-FLOW® PERIO Powder
• Up to 5mm* pocket depth – disrupt biofilm with the PERIO-FLOW®
handpiece, PERIO-FLOW® nozzle and AIR-FLOW® PERIO Powder
