The Swiss Made AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master is the latest EMS innovation for the “Guided Biofilm Therapy”: a unique solution for caries, periodontal prevention and maintenance. It is now considered the gold standard for hygiene treatments.
What is Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)?
Guided Biofilm Therapy is a systematic and advanced way to approach dental hygiene by using state of the art AIRFLOW®, PERIOFLOW® and PIEZON® technologies. It changes the more conventional approach of dental hygiene treatment by removing the biofilm (bacteria/plaque) before removing calculus (tartar).
This involves several stages:
- Assess the mouth to identify areas of concern
- Disclose the teeth with a dye to highlight any areas where there is biofilm
- Discuss homecare methods that will effectively disrupt the biofilm
- Disrupt the biofilm using the AIRFLOW® and remove any calculus using the PIEZON®
- Check that all calculus has been removed
- Recall as required
The AIRFLOW® uses warm water heated to between 25 and 40 o C. The water contains Erythritol powder, which helps to prevent tooth decay and reduces the production of plaque so it keeps on working even after you have left the practice.
In 95% of cases no pain has been reported therefore GBT is particularly effective and safe to use around sensitive teeth, crowns, orthodontic appliances, bridges and implants. The Erythritol powder is particularly effective at removing staining and discolouration from smoking, red wine, tea and coffee, and keeps your teeth stain-free for longer. A separate polish is not needed.

I love the air flow. I’ve been telling my colleagues about it at work. They’ve not been to a hygienist for years for fear of leaving with sore gums. I explained that the air flow is pain free, and it’s amazing because it removes so much! Even the built up biofilm! It leaves your mouth feeling super clean and teeth very shiny and smooth. It’s like a jet wash for your teeth. I love it.
Can highly recommend the Airflow hygiene treatment; for someone who has sensitive teeth that has never worked well with the legacy hygiene treatment approach, the Airflow system both more effective and more comfortable.
