Clinical Studies

Since the ground-breaking work of the prophylaxis pioneers Axelsson and Lindhe in the
1970s, there is no longer any doubt that bacterial plaque (biofilm) is responsible for the
development of caries, gingivitis and periodontitis. This determination also applies for the
more and more frequent occurrence of perimucositis and periimplantatitis.
The work of Axelsson and Lindhe and many other scientific examinations – from daily
practice as well – have also shown that the causes of these oral diseases can successfully
be combated. Particularly successful are the modern methods of tackling the causes (biofilm
managements) with state-of-the-art technologies: AIR-FLOW® with low abrasive powder and
ultrasound (Piezon®).
