The turbodent is a stand-alone unit focused specifically on air-polishing. As the underlying technique is identical with the combi unit, the turbodent can also be switched easily from supragingival to subgingival treatments.

a question of choice

the right powder for the intended use

Traditionally sodium bicarbonate powders are used for air-polishing procedures. Used in a proper and not excessively intense manner, the risk of harm to the enamel is minimal. For additional applications more gentle powders have been developed during the last years. Especially glycine, a natural amino acid, opened new indications for air-polishers, the most important being subgingival removal of biofilm.
