Latest Technology: EMS AIRFLOW®
We're excited to bring the latest dental hygiene technology to our Booragoon practice. Our EMS AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master means you can now experience stain-free, clean teeth without the mess, uncomfortable noises and cold water.
What is EMS AIRFLOW®?
AIRFLOW® is a revolutionary, non-contact form of dental maintenance and prevention. It projects a controlled stream of air, warm water and very fine sweet powder onto the tooth and hard-to-reach areas to dislodge and remove food particles, plaque, discolouration and stains.
Unlike traditional methods, the high pressure water/air stream cleans your teeth much faster, efficiently and comfortably.
How does EMS AIRFLOW® and a Guided Biofilm Therapy treatment work?
It is estimated that 1mm of dental plaque contains more than 200 million bacteria. If left untreated, the bacteria can spread and develop biolfilm. Biofilm is a colony of bacteria that can cause gum disease and compromise your body's immune system.
When using the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master device, our hygienist will firstly place a coloured dye onto your teeth to reveal any plaque and biofilm present in your mouth. This helps highlight any areas in your mouth that require a little more cleaning while brushing your teeth.
From here our hygienist will then efficiently remove the plaque build-up with AIRFLOW®. This is a key step in preventing and treating gingivitis (gum disease) and periodontitis.
As well as removing stains, AIRFLOW® can be used for a number of different treatments, including: cleaning orthodontic brackets and dentures, and to reduce the loss of implants.
