What Is AIRFLOW® Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)?

Experience the future of dental hygiene with AIRFLOW® Guided Biofilm Therapy. This Swiss innovation has transformed the patient experience, replacing traditional cleaning techniques with a groundbreaking system. AIRFLOW® cleaning combines warm water, air, and a gentle powder to eliminate bacteria (biofilm) that leads to tooth decay and gum disease, making it a gentle yet highly effective choice for your dental health.

  • Swiss Innovation: Having empowered dental hygienists to transform the patient experience by substituting traditional cleaning techniques with a groundbreaking system.

  • GBT and PMTC Cleaning: Performed in combination with PMTC cleaning, utilising AIRFLOW® technology. This technology combines warm water, air, and a gentle powder to eradicate all bacteria (biofilm) in the mouth that lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

  • Treatment Suitability: Highly effective, minimally invasive, and gentle. This means individuals with gum disease, braces, crowns, bridges, veneers, and implants can undergo the treatment. The procedures are so delicate that they can be applied to natural teeth, restorations, orthodontic braces, implants, the tongue, and gums.

  • Stain Removal and Whitening: For those looking to diminish teeth stains from coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco consumption, GBT is an excellent choice. It is also recommended prior to teeth whitening procedures to ensure optimal results.

  • Long-term Oral Care: Maintaining a radiant smile isn't just about a single visit to the dentist—it's a commitment. That's why our memberships are tailored to offer consistent, top-tier care, ensuring the best value.

What Is PMTC?

PMTC, or Prophylactic Dental Cleaning, is the cornerstone of maintaining your oral health and keeping your smile at its best. This traditional, hands-on approach meticulously removes plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth, ensuring a thorough and customised cleaning experience tailored to your unique dental needs.

  • Thorough Plaque and Tartar Removal: PMTC cleaning offers meticulous removal of plaque and tartar, which is essential for preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

  • Customised Care: Tailored to individual dental needs, PMTC cleaning allows your dental hygienist to focus on specific areas requiring attention, ensuring a personalised and comprehensive cleaning experience.

  • Effective for Various Dental Concerns: PMTC cleaning is versatile, making it suitable for individuals with different dental conditions, including gum disease and various dental restorations.

  • Promotes Oral Health: Above all, PMTC cleaning is a cornerstone of preventive oral health care, helping maintain the health of your teeth and gums and reducing the risk of more serious dental problems in the long run.

AIRFLOW® or PMTC - Which One Should I Get?

The choice between these two methods often depends on individual needs and preferences. PMTC cleaning offers a detailed and comprehensive removal of plaque and tartar, providing highly customised care to target problematic areas. However, it may be uncomfortable for individuals with sensitive teeth or gums. On the other hand, AIRFLOW® cleaning is efficient and less invasive, making it ideal for individuals seeking a quick and comfortable cleaning. It is also highly effective at surface stain removal. However, it may not be suitable for deep cleaning below the gumline, and dental clinics usually charge extra for this service.

At our clinic, we recommend a combination of both PMTC and AIRFLOW® cleaning for maximum teeth and gum protection. This approach provides the benefits of thorough, personalised care from PMTC cleaning and the efficiency and comfort of AIRFLOW® cleaning, ensuring a comprehensive and comfortable dental cleaning experience. We believe in tailoring your dental care to your unique needs, promoting your oral health and the brightness of your smile.

Benefits of PMTC Cleaning

  • Prevention of Dental Issues: PMTC cleanings remove plaque and tartar, preventing the development of cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems. Early detection and treatment during cleanings can also help address issues before they worsen.

  • Improved Gum Health: Scaling during PMTC cleanings removes bacteria and calculus from below the gumline, promoting healthy gums. Healthy gums are essential for strong teeth and can prevent complications like periodontal disease.

  • Fresh Breath: Removing plaque and tartar eliminates breeding grounds for bacteria, leading to fresher breath and improved oral hygiene.

  • Stain Removal: Polishing during PMTC cleanings effectively removes surface stains, leaving your teeth visibly cleaner and brighter. This process enhances your smile's aesthetic appeal.

  • Oral Cancer Detection: During cleanings, dental professionals often conduct oral cancer screenings, enabling early detection and timely intervention if any abnormalities are found.

  • Preservation of Tooth Structure: Regular PMTC cleanings help preserve your natural teeth by preventing decay and gum disease. Preserving your natural teeth is essential for oral function and appearance.

  • Overall Health Benefits: Good oral health is linked to overall health. Regular cleanings can reduce the risk of systemic diseases related to poor oral hygiene, including heart disease and diabetes.

  • Personalised Oral Care: Dental hygienists can offer tailored advice on oral hygiene practices and products, helping you maintain your dental health between visits.

  • Positive Dental Experience: Routine cleanings promote a positive dental experience, making future dental visits more comfortable and stress-free.
