Using the Airflow prophylaxis master to address unwanted biofilm development
You may not be familiar with it, but it may be present in your smile right now! Oral biofilm develops on the surfaces of the teeth due to a bacteria known as porphyromonas gingivalis. This biofilm can spur more than just dental problems but may be responsible for other medical issues such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes, Parkinson’s, heart disease, and pancreatic cancer. At Red Hill Dental Practice of Red Hill, Victoria, our team is here to help with guided biofilm therapy using a specialized device known as the Airflow Prophylaxis Master.
What is guided biofilm therapy?
Guided biofilm therapy, or GBT, is a dental protocol that was designed for the treatment of biofilm to help individuals maintain healthy teeth over a lifetime. This particular protocol includes traditional professional teeth cleaning along with additional devices, such as the Airflow device, that can effectively fight oral biofilm. Cleanings are also vital as they help to remove plaque, tartar, and calculus. Removing these substances from the teeth is crucial to prevent periodontal disease.
GBT is guided by the principle of minimally invasive dental care, which aims to preserve as much of the tooth’s natural structure as possible while still treating any dental issues. This means that GBT focuses on removing biofilm and other harmful substances and preventing future damage to the teeth and gums. At our dental practice, we provide this treatment using the Airflow Prophylaxis Master device.
