EMS airflow and guided biofilm therapy

At Kucey Dental Group we are so excited to introduce the EMS AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master and the Guided Biofilm Therapy – the latest technique in Dental maintenance and prevention to help you be healthier.

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 should you 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 challenge your body’s immune defences.

Our dental hygienist will apply a coloured dye to your teeth which reveals any plaque and biofilm present giving you an educational demonstration on how to effectively care for your teeth and gums at home to help minimize plaque (Biofilm) 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.

AIRFLOW® will remove the coloured dye as well as plaque and any stains. This is a big step in helping you prevent and treat gingivitis (gum disease) and periodontitis.

The use of AIRFLOW® prior minimizes the amount of time in which an ultrasonic scaling for calculus removal is needed, making the process quicker and more comfortable.

So now you can see why we’re so excited here at Kucey Dental Group to introduce this wonderful system to help our patients. 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!
