The 8 steps to complete pain-free teeth cleaning.


Your hygienist will introduce the EMS Airflow Technology, explaining the updated clinical steps that differ from traditional protocols. They will highlight its ability to target oral biofilm, the harmful plaque that first develops on teeth and gums.

Step 1 - Evaluation 

We will examine your teeth and gums and take any necessary X-rays to determine the appropriate steps for your visit.

Step 2 - Disclosure

Since biofilm is nearly invisible, your hygienist will apply a disclosing gel to make it visible, enhancing your understanding of where to focus your home care routine.

Step 3 - Motivation

Based on a personalized risk assessment, we will discuss necessary improvements for your at-home dental care routine.

Step 4 - Airflow Max

This innovative technology utilizes a gentle jet of air and warm water combined with Plus powder to effectively remove biofilm.

Step 5 - Perioflow

Perioflow, another component of the Airflow protocol, uses the same technology to gently and thoroughly clean periodontal pockets, ensuring deep cleaning.

Step 6 - Piezon PS

A painless step with a different Hand piece that it is another component of the Airflow technology, this hand piece also uses warm water and removes any remaining calcified plaque
(calculus / tartar).

Step 7 - Quality Control

Your hygienist will perform a final check to ensure your teeth and gums are pristine, clean and healthy.

Periodic Examination: Dr Cardenas or Dr Lagreca will join at the end of your visit to review clinical findings and discuss any updates in your health, examine your mouth and tissues, and go over any pending treatment, nutritional advice, health tips, and review preventive steps for future months.

Varnish Application: We will apply a nano-hydroxyapatite professional varnish, an innovative, toxin-free solution that replaces traditional fluoride treatments. This varnish offers superior remineralization of teeth with natural, effective ingredients.

Step 8 - Schedule Recall
