Let's delve into Guided Biofilm Therapy.

Guided Biofilm Therapy is a biofilm management modality, tailoring treatment plans based on individual diagnoses and needs.

Biofilm in the dental context, is the leading causative entity of cavities and infections. To underscore its gravity, periodontitis could augment the risk of systemic ailments such as cardiovascular, respiratory diseases, or diabetes.

The Prophylaxis Master from AIRFLOW® employs an entirely natural, low-abrasive powder to eradicate biofilm from teeth, promising a cleaner and healthier mouth.

Applications of Guided Biofilm Therapy encompass:

Let's scrutinize these domains.

This technology is the sole method that facilitates biofilm removal from hard-to-reach areas such as deep pits and fissures, interdental spaces, misaligned areas, below crown margins, around peri-implant sulcus, recessions, and orthodontic appliances in a minimally invasive manner.

Proactive cavity detection and mitigation is made possible with the Prophy Master, curtailing the need for future aggressive treatments, thus economizing your expenses.

Most importantly, this technology preserves the integrity of your natural teeth, implants, restorations, and soft tissues, enhancing your quality of life.
