We’re excited to bring some of the latest dental technology to Tulip Dental!
What is EMS AIRFLOW®?
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.
In collaboration with universities and dentists, EMS has developed a clinical protocol designed to treat biofilm (bacteria) and maintain healthy teeth over time. This protocol is called Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT).
AIRFLOW® is a revolutionary, non-contact form of dental maintenance and prevention. It projects a controlled stream of air, warm water and a very fine pleasant tasting powder onto the tooth and in hard-to-reach areas to dislodge and remove food particles, plaque, early calculus and stains.
If you have hard calculus, your Oral Health Therapist may also need to use an EMS ultrasonic cleaner on your teeth. However, the use of AIRFLOW® prior minimises the amount of time in which an ultrasonic is needed.
