Minimally Invasive teeth cleaning
Visiting your dentist for a comprehensive check-up and clean is an important part of maintaining good oral health, but we know that some people find the experience uncomfortable.
That's why we've introduced EMS Airflow® technology. This advanced system uses guided biofilm therapy (GBT) to offer a gentler clean for sensitive teeth and gums.
What is guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)?
Dental biofilm, commonly known as plaque, is the yellowish layer of bacteria that can build up on teeth over time and cause problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Keeping plaque under control is an important part of preventive dental care.
Good oral hygiene can prevent most plaque from forming, but even with regular brushing and flossing, some biofilm may still remain. Over time this can harden into calculus, which needs to be removed by a dental professional.
The traditional teeth cleaning procedure uses vibrating ultrasonic instruments to remove plaque deposits from the teeth. This can sometimes be painful for people with sensitive teeth and gums, who may delay or avoid dental visits due to the uncomfortable experience. Traditional teeth polishing uses rubber cups and brushes to help remove stains from the teeth, which some people find leaves an unpleasant feeling in their mouth.
Guided biofilm therapy (GBT) using the EMS Airflow® system is a new approach to teeth cleaning and polishing that's less invasive and can in turn improve the overall patient experience. This treatment can be tailored according to individual needs and different age groups to offer the best results.
