How Can the GBT EMS Airflow® System Improve Patient Experience?


At Elegant Smiles, our team is committed to changing the way our patients think about dental treatment. As one of the first practices in Las Vegas, NV to offer guided biofilm therapy (GBT) with the EMS Airflow system, we are excited to provide deep cleanings that take efficiency and comfort to the next level. This innovative approach not only improves dental health but also makes visits more pleasant and virtually stress-free, ensuring our patients receive the highest level of care possible. Read on to learn how our advanced approach to guided film biotherapy can enhance your dental care experience.

What is GBT?

Guided biofilm therapy is an innovative method for dental cleanings and preventive care. This sophisticated dental treatment targets biofilm, the soft, sticky layer of bacteria and other microorganisms that form on the teeth and gums. If left untreated, biofilm can harden into tartar, leading to cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Utilizing the EMS Airflow system, GBT combines air, water, and fine erythritol powder to dislodge and remove biofilm, surface stains, and early tartar buildup from the teeth. This technique is highly effective and less invasive than traditional methods, providing a comprehensive clean while being gentle on both teeth and gums, reducing discomfort, and enhancing the overall dental experience for our patients in Las Vegas, NV.

How does biofilm treatment work?

Guided biofilm therapy at Elegant Smiles generally takes about 30 – 45 minutes, depending on how much built-up plaque we have to remove. First, a disclosing solution is applied to highlight areas of biofilm, which is a sticky layer of bacteria that forms on the teeth. The EMS Airflow device then gently sprays a mixture of air, water, and erythritol powder to remove the biofilm and surface stains. For more complex cases involving hardened plaque, we may follow up with EMS PIEZON®, which uses ultrasonic energy to remove stuck-on materials with little to no discomfort. After this, the teeth are polished to create a smooth surface that is less likely to attract bacteria. Finally, a fluoride treatment is applied to strengthen the enamel and protect against cavities.

How can guided biofilm therapy with EMS Airflow improve my dental experience?

GBT offers numerous benefits that can significantly enhance your dental experience:

  • Comfort: The nonabrasive nature of the EMS Airflow system makes the treatment more comfortable, reducing sensitivity and discomfort during and after the procedure.
  • Efficiency: GBT allows for a more thorough cleaning in less time, making your dental visits quicker and more convenient.
  • Safety: The gentle approach minimizes the risk of damage to the teeth and gums, making it suitable for patients with sensitive teeth.
  • Prevention: By effectively removing biofilm, GBT helps prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues.
  • Aesthetics: The polishing effect of the EMS Airflow system helps to brighten your smile by removing surface stains.

Is guided biofilm treatment safe for dental implants, crowns, and other restorations?

Our practice's EMS Airflow system offers a gentle yet thorough cleaning method, making it suitable for dental implants, crowns, and other restorations. This technology ensures that the air, water, and erythritol powder mixture reaches even hard-to-access areas without causing damage. The treatment is designed to protect and maintain the integrity of your dental work while providing effective removal of biofilm and surface stains.
