At Melbourne Dentistry, we clean your teeth a different way. We perform Guided Biofilm Therapy® (GBT), a minimally invasive, safe and gentle process to remove the dental biofilm from your teeth, soft tissues, dental implants and restorations. Guided Biofilm Therapy® is a real game changer for gum health. It is the most effective, thorough and state of the art approach to removing oral bacteria to help you maintain healthy gums.
The Airflow® Prophylaxis Master is the technology used in GBT to clean your teeth and gums. Airflow® is a Swiss made, precision technology. It won't scratch or damage your tooth, dental implant or ceramic/veneer surface. We no longer need to scrape your teeth with hand scalers the traditional way. Airflow® uses high pressure water and Erythritol (edible) based Plus Powder.
Painless Teeth Cleaning
Your teeth can be cleaned with little to no sensitivity. Airflow® has a variable temperature setting, which we can adjust to your comfort level. Water temperature can vary from 10 to 40 degrees celsius. In fact, adults with sensitive teeth (due to gum shrinkage/recession and gum disease) will be amazed at how comfortable a professional teeth cleaning can be.
Your children will also love GBT with Airflow®. The teeth cleaning appointment is not only fun and educational, but super comfortable, especially for anxious children.
Aiflow® is the safest teeth cleaning technology for people with chalky teeth as it won't scratch or weaken fragile tooth enamel.
We also recommend Airflow® for people with dry mouths as it is very gentle on vulnerable oral tissues.
Airflow® for better Whitening Results
Airflow® will remove superficial tooth enamel stains, including stains in the hard to reach surfaces and angles between your teeth. Your tooth enamel will appear glossier and shinier after cleaning with Airflow®.
