Details and patient eligibility

About

The aim of this clinical study was to evaluate the clinical efficacy of using perio flow adjunctively with mechanical instrumentation on periodontal parameters and halitosis. Sixty patients who presented with 4-6-mm probing pocket depth (PPD) were recruited for the study. Patients were randomly assigned to glycine powder air-polishing (GPAP) or control groups. For both groups PPDscores were recorded at the baseline and 1 month. Volatile sulphur compound (VSC) values were measured by a halimeter at the baseline, immediately after treatment, and at 7 days, 14 days and 1 month.

Trial design

60 participants in 2 patient groups

test
Experimental group
Description:
SRP was performed using routine ultrasonic (Piezon Master 700; EMS, Nyon, Switzerland) and hand instrumentation, glycine powder air-polishing (GPAP) was performed for 10 seconds per surface after the instrumentation (Air-Flows Perio Powder, EMS, Nyon, Switzerland) was applied using a Perio-Flows hand-piece connected to an airflow unit (Air-Flow Masters, EMS).
Treatment:

Device: glycine powder air-polishing (Air-Flows)Perio Powder
control
Active Comparator group
Description:
In the control group, SRP was performed using routine ultrasonic (Piezon Master 700; EMS, Nyon, Switzerland) and hand instrumentation.
Treatment:
Device: ultrasonic (Piezon Master 700; EMS, Nyon, Switzerland)
