At Newtown Elite Dental, we are so excited to introduce the EMS AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master and the Guided Biofilm Therapy – the latest technique in Dental maintenance and prevention.
What is EMS airflow?
Airflow is a Swiss innovative device that projects a controlled stream of air, warm water and fine, sweet powder onto the tooth and in hard-to-reach areas to remove food particles, plaque and stains.
The high pressure water/air stream cleans your teeth much faster, efficiently and comfortably.
One of the benefits of the AIRFLOW® system is the water is heated to 40 degrees Celsius which has proven to be perfect for those with very sensitive teeth, making the cleaning process so much more comfortable.
As well as removing stains, AIRFLOW® can be used for many different treatment types including: cleaning orthodontic brackets, dentures and implants. The specially formulated powder formula removes stains with ease, all without damaging the soft tissue or implants.
What is Guided Biofilm Therapy and what to expect in the session?
Guided Biofilm Therapy is a very logical and efficient approach in Dental cleaning and maintenance.
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 defences.
Your dental hygienist will apply a coloured dye to your teeth which reveals any plaque and biofilm present.
You’ll then be given an educational demonstration on how to effectively care for your teeth and gums at home to help minimise plaque build-up. This is a great visual and motivational tool which will show you which areas you’re missing and which areas you need to spend a little more time cleaning at home.
The plaque build-up, coloured dye as well as any stains will be effectively removed with AIRFLOW®. This is a big step in preventing and treating gingivitis (gum disease) and periodontitis.
Next, if you have any hard calculus, your hygienist will remove this with the EMS ultrasonic which also emits warmed water. However, the use of AIRFLOW® prior minimises the amount of time in which an ultrasonic is needed, making the process quicker and more comfortable.
So now you can see why we’re so excited here at Newtown Elite Dental to introduce such a fantastic system. You can now experience stain-free, clean teeth with much less discomfort. It’s time to give your teeth the best clean they’ve ever had!
