EMS Airflow - Guided Biofilm Therapy - Lowell Tooth DocsLowell Tooth Docs is proud to be part of a small percentage of dental offices in the area using Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) technology to provide the most advanced dental cleaning possible. This system allows us to provide a higher standard of care to our patients.

What is Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)?

Guided Biofilm Therapy is a minimally invasive way to safely and effectively remove dental biofilm (plaque) from the teeth and soft tissues above and below the gumline.

What is dental biofilm? 

Biofilm removal is essential for maintaining dental health and overall health. Living bacteria reside within dental biofilm. It is responsible for tooth decay, bad breath, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. This biofilm plays a role in many systemic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disorders, etc.

How do we remove dental biofilm? 

Here at Lowell Tooth Docs, we use state-of-the-art equipment from EMS called the Prophylaxis Master. First, we perform a bacteria test to easily see the biofilm. AirFlow technology is used to remove the biofilm with warm water, compressed air, and erythritol powder. When needed, Piezo technology helps us to remove dental calculus (tartar) safely and efficiently.

How is this system different?

– Minimally invasive

– Highly effective

– Comfortable

– Less time needed for hand scaling

– No rubber cup polishing with gritty paste
