For primary disinfection in periimplantitis, a mouthpiece similar to the endodontic solution is used to disinfect the implant. A further attachment is then used to deposit carbon-based, functionalized compounds on implant surface. This reduces its nano-roughness and tailors its surface properties to minimize the adhesion of bacteria. Hence, a treatment step to prevent reinfections is carried out. In the maintenance therapy a further disinfection step is carried out with the help of the foil micronozzle.
In the narrow space between the inflamed gingiva and the infected tooth root, the Transient Spark Disinfection is applied using a flexible foil nozzle which the operator shifts between the gum and the tooth without having to proceed surgically. The special form of DFR (Dry Film Resist) technology developed by the founders is currently the only way to produce a flat and flexible nozzle in the sub-millimeter range.
The Transient Spark generates short-lived species. Those penetrate into the apical region of the root canal and into recessions because, unlike liquid, it displays no surface tension. It has a highly efficient, non-specific deactivating effect on bacteria as well as on virulent components, antigenic bacterial residues and cell residues .Watch Video
