Dental Hygiene Technology
We’re excited to bring the latest dental hygiene technology to Dr Patrick J Meaney and Associates. Find out how Swiss-Made EMS AIRFLOW® and a Guided Biofilm Therapy treatment can benefit your smile!
Our installed EMS AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master means that you can now experience stain-free, clean teeth without the pain! No more mess, no more nails scraping like noise on the blackboard and no more COLD water. It’s time to give your teeth the best clean they’ve ever had!
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 higher-pressure water/air stream cleans your teeth much faster, efficiently and 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.
AIRFLOW® is akin to being at a day spa but instead of beauticians working on your face, our hygiene team are gently exfoliating your teeth. Since the water in the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master heats to 40 degrees, it’s a positively warm experience!
How does EMS AIRFLOW® and a Guided Biofilm Therapy treatment work?
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.
When using the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master device, firstly our hygiene team will place a coloured dye onto your teeth to reveal any plaque 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.
Our hygiene team 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 per-implantitis and to reduce the loss of implants.
If you have hard calculus, our hygiene team 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.
