Guided Biofilm Therapy

Air + Water + Fine powder= Pain free ultra clean, healthy teeth.

The New and Modern Way to a healthier smile in just 8 easy steps:

1. Diagnosis

Each person’s oral health is assessed, and a bespoke treatment plan is discussed and put into place

2. Disclose

A disclosing agent is used to make the biofilm visible for you to see.

3. Motivate and Educate

The hygienist will give oral hygiene instructions, so that you will achieve better tooth cleaning results.

4. Airflow®

Pain free removal of biofilm, stains and young calculus from your teeth, restorations and implants leaving your teeth clean, fresh and healthy.

  • It’s quick
  • More comfortable than traditional hygiene treatments
  • It’s more effective

5. Perioflow

This removes the biofilm from deeper pockets around the teeth and implants.

6. Piezon

This scaler may be used to remove any calculus not removed by the Airflow, completing the clean.

7. Control

A final check is made that all the biofilm has been removed and fluoride may be prescribed.

8. Recall

Follow up appointments are scheduled if needed to achieve treatment goals.

Healthy patients = Happy patients

Airflow is used for;

  • Maintaining good oral hygiene
  • Treating periodontal disease
  • Removal of stains and calculus
  • Implant maintenance
  • Cleaning teeth and orthodontic appliances during orthodontic treatment for adults and children
  • Cleaning dentures


What is Dental Biofilm?

Dental biofilm is the main etiological factor for caries, periodontal and peri-implant infections. Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis or diabetes.

How often should I see the hygienist?

Regular good oral hygiene combined with 3- 6 monthly visits to see a hygienist who helps keep the biofilm under control. The biofilm re-establishes in 90-120 days.

How does the Airflow® work?

The Airflow unit directs a fine spray of warm water and Erythitol powder onto the surface of the teeth. The powder removes staining, biofilm and young calculus in a minimally- invasive way from all types of surfaces: enamel, dentine, soft tissues, restorations, orthodontic appliances or implant surfaces. It is non-abrasive and is pain free.
