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 biofilm. 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, a hygienist will first 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 your 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.
