This new partnership will instruct trainees on how to best utilize the AIRFLOW Master units to remove biofilm and better assist patients.
Manufacturer of the Guided Biofilm Therapy protocol (GBT®) EMS Dental has recently installed 7 AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master units at Coastal Carolina Community College in North Carolina. EMS Dental has supplemented this installation with a “train the Trainers” support of the college’s hygiene school.
GBT includes assessment, disclosing, and patient-motivation elements which are said to be often left out in training because of limited time. GBT will allow these elements to be reintroduced to the operatory, according to a press release from EMS Dental.
Utilizing the AIRFLOW Prophylaxis Master device, which includes fine AIRFLOW PLUS powder® through the AIRFLOW MAX handpiece®, trainees will be able to remove biofilm in the sulcus area and shallow pockets up to 4 mm, on the tongue, gingiva, and the palate. This is effective on natural teeth, restorations, and implants.
Being able to use less local anesthesia is said to provide more a more comfortable and relaxed experience during periodontal treatment. EMS Dental and Carolina Coastal Community College plan on training more faculty and hopefully expanding the deployment of AIRFLOW systems.
