COMBI touch – The all in one in prophylaxis

The COMBI touch combines ultrasound and air-polishing in one unit to provide a complete prophylaxis treatment from removal of supra-gingival and subgingival calculus to gentle removal of stain and biofilm and even implant cleaning.

Thanks to the ergonomic touch panel, allows to control every function as fast and intuitive as never before and at the same time clean and disinfect the device in literally no time.

The ultrasound unit, thanks to its “soft-mode” function, allows for ultra-gentle scaling, which reduces the insert's oscillation amplitude, rendering its motion compatible with even the most sensitive of patients. While also guaranteeing optimal performance with prosthetics and extractions treatments thanks to the “pulse mode” function transforming the ultrasound oscillation to a new profile.  

The air-polishing unit allows for the use of different types of powder (supra- or subgingival), depending on the desired treatment type. The greatest advantage is the ability to manage the use of both powders on the same patient with a simple click. Furthermore, it is not necessary to change the air-polishing handpiece. 

Instead, simply insert any one of the 3 available spray nozzles  with different orientation (120°, PERIO and the optional 90°), combi touch technology made it possible for the operator to decontaminate the oral cavity in an effective manner, with the advantage of being able to work in an ergonomic fashion, easily reaching all necessary sites. 

The greatest advantage for the operator, therefore, is that the technology provides a complete set of tools for effective, fast and minimally invasive Non Surgical Periodontal Therapy, even in periodontal pockets deeper than 5 mm, thanks to the dedicated subgingival perio tips simply attached to the perio nozzle. Soft, flexible, and anatomically adjustable to the periodontal pocket, this tip gentle removes bacterial biofilms from the periodontal and peri-implant pockets.

This new combined technique allows the operator to obtain an excellent clinical result, with an advantage in the timing of the procedure much appreciated by patients.

Device maintenance is fast and simple, thanks to containers that can be removed without having to switch off the device, and an exclusive anti-clogging system for the powder. What's more, it can either be hooked up to the office’s regular water system or used with a 500ml external bottle.
