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 in hard-to-reach areas to dislodge and remove food particles, plaque, discolouration and stains. The high-pressure water/air stream cleans your teeth much faster, more efficiently and more comfortably than the use of traditional pastes. Traditional methods are often messy, time-consuming and can leave you with a not-so-clean taste in your mouth.
How does EMS AIRFLOW® and a Guided Biofilm Therapy treatment work?
When using the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis, firstly your Hygienist will place a coloured dye onto your teeth to reveal any plaque (the die doesn’t lie!) and biofilm present in your mouth. This is a great motivational tool to show you the areas in your mouth that you need to spend a little more time cleaning at home.
Your Hygienist will then efficiently remove the plaque build-up with AIRFLOW®. This is a big step in preventing and treating gingivitis (gum disease) and periodontitis.
As well as removing stains, AIRFLOW® can be used for many different treatment types including cleaning orthodontic brackets and dentures plus implants to minimise the risk of losing an implant. If you have hard calculus, your Hygienist may also need to use an ultrasonic on your teeth. However, the use of AIRFLOW® prior minimises the amount of time in which an ultrasonic is needed.
