It is comfortable for the patient, powerful and does not scratch the tooth surface.

What is Dental Biofilm Removal?
As you are aware, the main factor for dental caries, periodontal and peri-implant infections relates to dental biofilm.
Are you already doing the necessary steps to remove biofilm? Maybe……but it could be done more effectively by adding controlled air polishing to your process.
An important step in properly removing dental biofilm is to utilize a proper air polishing and ultrasonic scaling solution such as the Woodpecker PTB. The Woodpecker PTB delivers air polishing and scaling in one smart, affordable and effective device.
The process of biofilm removal is a sequential removal of plaque and calculus by initially detecting it with a disclosing agent followed by the use of an air abrasive powder/polisher for the removal of plaque and stains. Following the air polishing step, the subgingival plaque and calculus are removed with a specialized nozzle and, if required, ultrasonic scaling with a specialized tip is performed based on the clinical application.
Adding air polishing to your hygiene routine will allow you to remove biofilm, stains and early calculus prior to utilizing an ultrasonic scaler. Air polishing will allow the practitioner to remove biofilm supra and subgingivally, as well as enamel stains, with the provided Woodpecker powder - or another powder brand of your choice (see acceptable powder types/μm below). Biofilm will also be removed effectively from surrounding soft tissue during the air polishing process. Studies have proven air polishing is vastly superior to conventional biofilm removal with hand instruments.
After the utilizing the Woodpecker Air Polishing handpiece from the PTB model, any remaining calculus can be removed with the ultrasonic scaler handpiece. The Woodpecker PTB combines air polishing and scaling into one smart and effective device.
