During these unprecedented times, we are committed to continuing to do what’s best for you and your team, and the entire community of private dental practices that we serve, as well as for our employees.

We are monitoring this quickly changing situation and working closely with our manufacturer partners to continue to serve you. Unfortunately, due to global demand for PPE and other infection control supplies, orders for these supplies will not be guaranteed for delivery and are subject to backorder status, allocation of amounts and/or cancellation. Orders placed for PPE and infection control supplies cannot be cancelled or returned.

We have compiled additional resources and information relevant to the dental community at www.goetzedental.com/covid19. We update this site as new information becomes available.

Hu-Friedy Air-Flow® S2 Air Polisher/Piezo Scaler

The AIR-FLOW® S2 combines two devices in one for the professional removal of tooth deposits and stains. With the combined use of AIR-FLOW® and Piezon® technologies, the AIR-FLOW® S2 removes calculus, dental plaque, soft deposits and surface stains from pits, grooves, interproximal spaces and smooth surfaces of the teeth. It is also recommended for a wide variety of cleaning procedures.… Read more

Hu-Friedy and EMS Piezon® Solutions Brochure

The AIR-FLOW® S2 combines two devices in one for the professional removal of tooth deposits and stains. With the combined use of AIR-FLOW® and Piezon® technologies, the AIR-FLOW® S2 removes calculus, dental plaque, soft deposits and surface stains from pits, grooves, interproximal spaces and smooth surfaces of the teeth. It is also recommended for a wide variety of cleaning procedures.

FEATURES

  • Free-Flow technology to prevent clogging of powder, air and water line
  • Controlled Piezon® oscillation pattern for greater efficiency and patient comfort
  • Ultrasonic cavitation and acoustic streaming for enhanced treatment efficiency
  • Incredibly light handpiece tubing allows for easier maneuvering of the handpiece while in use
  • 3 integrated self-cleaning filters for proper maintenance of the unit
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
