WHAT PATIENTS SAY
AIRFLOW is fun. I liked the colours on my teeth first and thought the water tickled.
The best clean that I have ever had! My teeth feel silky smooth & I didn’t feel any pain. The warm water was a pleasant surprise – it felt like a spa in my mouth! You should see my teeth now, they have never looked so white (my wife is ecstatic) & I didn’t have to pay for a whitening treatment.
No one scratched or poked my teeth & there was none of that gooey messy stuff. GBT will now be my go-to treatment & I’ll be recommending it to all my friends and family! I’m now a GBT convert!
As I have got older I have developed receding gums so usually need local anaesthetic when I have my regular scale and polish. I heard about AIRFLOW® so decided it was worth a try and I'm so glad I did, it was absolutely painless and over very quickly - My teeth still feel really smooth and clean, I'm definitely a convert - no more post anaesthetic dribbling for me!
I used to put off my hygiene appointments for as long as possible. I hated the cold water, the painful scaler and the horrid gritty paste and occasional trays overfilled with disgusting gel.
Well, a couple of years ago, Dr Nixon bought some AIRFLOW units that made some remarkable changes to my 6 monthly visits. I now can’t wait for my Dental Spa session, it’s warm, gentle & painless.
I love my visits to my dental team, & I know I’m getting the best care.
HOW IT WORKS
What is GUIDED BIOFILM THERAPY?
Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is based on clinically proven technologies invented by EMS. It was developed in cooperation with highly respected and experienced periodontologists, caries specialists and dental hygienists.
GBT is minimally invasive, safe, effective and gentle to teeth and soft tissues, implants and restorations.
A real game-changer & new state-of-the-art approach to remove biofilm.
STEP 1: ASSESSMENT
The clinician checks your mouth to identify any dental decay or gum disease.
STEP 2: DISCLOSING
A disclosing agent is applied to your teeth to make dental plaque visible. This helps the clinician to see where to clean.
STEP 3: MOTIVATION
The disclosing also helps the clinician to show you any problem areas and give you tips on how to improve your dental care at home.
STEP 4: AIRFLOW® - The Dental Spa
The combination of air, fine powder and warm water creates a spray that will gently exfoliate your teeth, without the device physically touching them. Imagine a spa treatment but for your mouth!
STEP 5: PERIOFLOW® (if necessary)
In case you suffer from Periodontitis (gum inflammation) or have implants, the clinician will use this nozzle to clean more thoroughly.
STEP 6: PIEZON® (if necessary)
This No-Pain instrument will remove any remaining tartar on your teeth. It is minimally invasive, comfortable & highly efficient.*
*In some instances, your dental professional may use PIEZON first if you have a substantial build up of tartar.
STEP 7: FINAL CHECK
Final check if all biofilm & tartar is removed.
STEP 8: RECALL
Set a date for when it's time for your next clean. Until then, enjoy that fresh & clean feeling of your teeth!
