Scientific Evidence Library
As market leaders in Professional Prophylaxis and Prevention and a pioneer in modern biofilm management, we are dedicated to being at the forefront of science and innovation. Prevention is our vision for the dentist of tomorrow where non-surgical treatments and minimal invasive therapies are the main approach.
Working in close collaboration with leading clinics, universities, research institutes and opinion leaders we are continuing to pursue a leading role in research and scientific evidence. We have made it our priority to deliver clinicians with the latest scientific evidence and the most advanced technology to attain our ultimate goal of prevention with the Guided Biofilm Therapy.

Evaluation of an ex vivo porcine model to investigate the effect of low abrasive airpolishing
An animal model using pig jaws may be used as a preliminary model to analyze histological effects of periodontal instrumentation in advance of studies performed in human tissues. Among the techniques assessed, low abrasive airpolishing (LAA) caused the smallest tissue damage.
An in vitro comparison of the effects of various air polishing powders on enamel and selected esthetic restorative materials
Based on the results of this study, the air polishing powders that are compatible with use on hybrid composite and glass ionomer cements are EMS glycine and EMS sodium bicarbonate. The air polishing powders that are compatible for use on enamel include EMS glycine, Dentsply sodium bicarbonate, and EMS sodium bicarbonate.
Erythritol alters microstructure and metabolomic profiles of biofilm composed of Streptococcus gordonii and Porphyromonas gingivalis
To evaluate the efficacy of sugar alcohols for inhibiting periodontopathic biofilm formation using a heterotypic biofilm model composed of an oral inhabitant Streptococcus gordinii and a peridontal pathogen porphyromonas gingivalis.
Erythritol/chlorhexidine combination reduces microbial biofilm and prevents its formation on titanium surfaces in vitro
Erythritol/chlorhexidine, an air polishing powder due to its antimicrobial and antibiofilm properties represent a promising approach for prevention and treatment of peri-implant diseases.
Parameters that improve cleaning efficiency of subgingival air polishing on titanium implant surfaces. An in-vitro study
For the most effective clinical use of air polishing, it should be applied with high pressure, deep insertion of nozzle, and enough water flow. Additionally, the nozzle has to be moved to get the best cleaning effect.
