OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to compare the gingival trauma with Prophy-Jet and rubber-cup polishing techniques using aluminium trihydroxide as polishing agent. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 15 subjects suffering from gingivitis were enrolled in a randomized controlled split mouth experimental investigation. After scaling, Prophy-Jet and rubber-cup polishing techniques were applied on either side of the mouth using aluminium trihydroxide as polishing agent and the gingival trauma was assessed immediately after, 7 days and 21 days posttreatment using trauma index (TI)...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of different air-polishing powders on the color stability of different types of composite resin restorative materials. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty cylindrical specimens (15×2 mm) were prepared for each of 7 composite resin restorative materials. All specimens were polished with a series of aluminum oxide polishing discs (Sof-Lex). The prepared specimens of each composite resin were randomly divided into 3 groups of 10 specimens each, for control (Group-C) and two air-powder applications (Group-CP: Cavitron Prophy-Jet; Group-PS: Sirona ProSmile prophylaxis powder)...

OBJECTIVE: Compare clinical effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate and bioactive glass powders used for dental prophylaxis. METHODS: 25 patients were allocated to either good or poor oral hygiene subgroups (n=50). Using a double-blind, split-mouth model, all patients underwent prophylaxis treatment on mandibular teeth; maxillary teeth were untreated controls. Bioactive glass (Sylc, OSspray Ltd., UK) and sodium bicarbonate (Prophy Jet, Dentsply, UK) were applied randomly to opposite sides of each mouth...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the number and morphology of fibroblasts grown on machined titanium healing abutments treated with an airpowder system. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-six abutments were assigned to two experimental groups: control (no treatment) and treated (exposed to the Prophy-Jet for 30 seconds). The specimens were incubated for 24 hours with fibroblastic cells in multiwell plates, followed by routine laboratory processing for scanning electron microscope analysis...

AIM: Air-polishing devices (APDs) are highly effective in removing plaque and extrinsic staining. Their application on root surfaces, however, may result in clinically relevant substance removal, limiting the use in patients with periodontitis, where denuded root surfaces are frequently found. Therefore, the purpose of the study was to assess the influence of different working parameters on root damage and to identify those minimizing root damage. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Defect depth and defect volume after instrumentation of roots with an APD (Dentsply Prophy-Jet) using conventional NaHCO3 powder at instrumentation times of 5, 10 and 20 s, combinations of low, medium and high powder and water settings, distances of 2, 4 and 6 mm, and angulations of 45 degrees and 90 degrees were quantified laseroptically...

The aim of this in vitro study using implants and abutments was to examine traces left by various cleaning instruments and to determine the quantity of substance removal. The implants and relevant abutments were Screw-Vent implants (Dentsply), titanium plasma-coated full-screw implants (Straumann), and standard Brånemark implants (Nobel Biocare). The instruments used were titanium curettes, Gracey curettes, plastic curettes, rubber cups with Zircate prophy paste, the Cavitron Jet ultrasonic scaler with universal inserts and airpolishing nozzles with Prophy-Jet cleaning powder, and the Densonic sonic scaler with SofTip disposable prophy tips and universal tips...

This study compares the effect of 4 different air-powder abrasive devices (PWS) (Air-Flow-S1, Clean-Jet, Prophy-Jet 30, Prophy-Unit) on tooth enamel. Freshly extracted bovine teeth were partially embedded in polyurethane, the labial surface ground flat and highly polished. Subsequently the teeth were subjected to the spray from the air-powder abrasive device for 60 s or polished with a prophylactic paste (CCS 170, CCS 250 or Cleanic) for the same length of time. The effects of the different air-powder abrasive systems were tested under multiple adjustments of powder/air and water...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of two air-abrasive prophylaxis systems and the effect of inlet air pressure on the surface of Brånemark titanium abutment cylinders. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Single abutment cylinders were treated with either the Prophy-Jet system (sodium bicarbonate abrasive) (Dentsply International, York, PA) or the Microprophy system (aluminum oxide abrasive) (Danville Engineering Co, Danville, CA) for 60 seconds at an inlet air pressure of 60 psi or 90 psi...

Eighty bovine incisors were ground on 320-grit silicone carbide paper and cleaned with fluoride-free prophylaxis paste. The enamel surface conditions were: 1. no conditioning; 2. salicylic acid (10%, 10s); 3. benzoic acid (10%, 10s); 4. air polishing with sodium hydrogen carbonate/Prophy-Jet; 5. Prophy-Jet, followed by polyacrylic acid (PAA, 10%, 10 s); 6. PAA, followed by saliva contamination; 7. PAA; 8. phosphoric acid (37%, 10 s). Fuji Ortho II LC (GC) was used as a bracket adhesive in groups 1 t0 7, and in group 8 Concise orthodontic (3M)...

The purpose of this study was to selectively remove the smear layer from dentine without altering the underlying tissue. Two groups of test samples were established. The first group consisted of flat dentine surfaces exposed transversely in the mid-coronal plane using a diamond blade. The second group was comprised of Class II cavity preparations made in recently extracted molar teeth using a diamond bur. The cut surfaces in both groups were subjected to the air polishing action of the Prophy Jet devise. Exposure times were 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40 s...

This study determined, quantitatively, the role of resin infiltration in dentin bonding. Four groups contained 10 molar teeth. Thirty were sectioned in the mid-coronal region and the dentin ground flat with 600 grit silicon carbide paper. Group 1: smear layer intact; Group 2: smear layer removed with a Prophy Jet; Group 3: conditioned with 10% H3PO4 for 20 seconds; Group 4: comprised dentin exposed by a transverse, mid-coronal fracture. Dentin surfaces were treated with All-Bond 2, its companion bonding agent, followed by P50 resin composite, polymerized in 1 mm increments...

The Prophy-Jet was evaluated for its effectiveness in removing plaque and stain from teeth and on its effects on the marginal gingiva. Using a randomized split-mouth design, half the mouth was treated with the Prophy-Jet and the contralateral side with a rubber cup and prophylaxis paste. The results indicated that the Prophy-Jet removes tooth plaque and stain as well as the rubber cup and prophylaxis paste method, and does so in less time. It was also found that there was some immediate soft tissue trauma following both treatment modalities, with a mean Trauma Index score of 0...

An air-powder abrasive system, the Prophy-Jet model C-100, is now available for use by the dental community. However, its use has been restricted to cleaning enamel surfaces of stain and dental plaque. The purpose of this investigation was to ascertain the effects of this air-powder abrasive system on root surfaces of extracted human teeth. Thus, root surfaces of 20 teeth were covered with a template consisting of a metal band with a centrally located 2-mm diameter hole. The banded root surfaces, under controlled conditions, were exposed to the air-powder abrasive for 30 seconds...

Clinical, histologic and scanning electron microscopic study of the use of the Prophy-Jet. The Prophy-Jet (Cavitron-International) is used for the removal of gross stain and heavy plaque. In this study the plaque and stain removal capacities have been investigated in patients with a healthy and inflamed gingiva. The influence of the spray of cleaning powder (sodiumbicarbonate) on the gingiva has been studied in gingival biopsies of Beagle dog. With the use of a scanning electron microscope the dentine and cementum have been investigated after spraying during 30 seconds to 2 minutes...
