Course description
To understand usefulness of air polishing in contemporary practice. To understand, that when used by a trained professional, air polishing is safe and effective. To distinguish the differing aspects of the powders used in airflow machines. To understand the advantage of subgingival biofilm removal is more effective and efficient. Recognise the importance how to treat compromised patients while using airflow machines.

The future of effective removal of subgingival biofilm is having significant advancement in air polishing. To use air polishing effectively, clinicians need to be trained in its proper use, the advantages and disadvantages, as well as indications and contraindications for use. Research certainly supports that patients are very accepting of this technology which is safe and effective and prefer its use.

Air polishing is achieved by the propulsion of micro abrasive particles forced through a mixture of compressed air and water through a handpiece nozzle aiming to remove biofilm, pellicle and staining, through kinetic energy.

Routine tooth polishing continues to be an integral part of clinical practice. With the growing body of evidence to support alternative tooth polishing methods, dental hygiene practitioners should familiarize themselves with contemporary methods including air polishing.
Course Objectives
Review comprehensive overviews of recent advancements in air polishing.
Review the effects of air polishing on hard and soft tissues, restorative materials, sealants, orthodontic appliances and implants.
