At Dental on York, we love keeping up to date with the latest dental technology. It’s no secret that going to the dentist isn’t the most fun activity. The tools used can be loud and uncomfortable. That is why we are so excited about the EMS Airflow.
At our Sydney CBD practice, we’re proud to be equipped with this innovative piece of technology for preventative dental care. It makes cleaning easier and as comfortable as possible for our patients. In this article, we give you the rundown on the EMS Airflow.
A New Approach to Dental Hygiene
Engineered in Switzerland the EMS Airflow offers a revolutionary way of cleaning teeth. It projects a warm stream of air and water. This is combined with a very fine sweet powder. It cleans in between teeth, on the surface and gums. It can remove plaque and other build-up. As well as food particles you may have missed while brushing, discolouration, staining and bacteria.
It abides by the highest hygiene standards. It has been through countless hours of clinical testing. It was made in collaboration with dental professionals from around the world. So, you can be assured it is the best and latest in dental technology.
The EMS Airflow offers a comfortable solution to older dental instruments. No more loud, high pitched sounds and scraping!
Who Can Use the EMS Airflow?
Basically, anyone can try it. We encourage all our patients to give it a go. It is especially great for:
- Nervous patients
- Patients with sensitive teeth
- Patients who dislike getting their teeth professionally cleaned
- Orthodontic patients with braces or brackets
- Patients with dental implants
- Patients who want a more peaceful dental experience
How Does it Work?
Even if you have great at-home teeth brushing and flossing habits you’ll probably still experience some plaque build-up. Plaque is a sticky pale/yellow substance that is constantly forming on your teeth. With regular brushing and flossing, you can avoid it building up. However, a professional clean by your dentist is still required every now and then to remove anything you cannot reach at home. This is where the EMS Airflow comes in.
The EMS Airflow was developed to replace the uncomfortable dental instruments that have been used for decades. It uses direct air and water flow, as well as a specially designed powder. This works to clean your teeth and gaps thoroughly. The instrument will not come into direct contact with your mouth. This makes it more hygienic than other tools. It can also reach more places than other tools, offering a better all-round clean.
It works in a similar way to the at-home “water flossers” you can buy in supermarkets or pharmacies. Unlike these products, the EMS Airflow effectively removes plaque and bacteria.
What Makes it Different?
It is more comfortable than traditional dental tools
- No more scraping noises
- No more high-pitched noises
- Reduced pain for people with sensitive teeth
- More hygienic than other dental tools
- Uses warm water making it a more pleasant experience
- Less painful because of the air/water stream combination
- Able to remove stains more effectively than traditional cleaning
- Removes more bacteria than traditional cleaning
What Makes it More Comfortable?
Traditional dental tools used for professional cleaning can be uncomfortable. There is a certain scraping sound associated with going to the dentist. Many patients find this noise unpleasant. Patients with sensitive teeth can also find it painful. This is why we are happy to use the EMS Airflow at our practice. Using a stream of warm air and water means no more scratchy noise. It sounds more like a mini shower. It is a much more pleasant experience, we love it!
It also takes away the pain as the air/water combination is soft on teeth and gums. The EMS Airflow cannot remove 100% of plaque build-up. If a patient has particularly hard build-up, then other tools may still be necessary. However, it greatly reduces the need for other tools.
The EMS airflow can also reach more places and remove more bacteria than any other tool.
The EMS Airflow is an exciting new way for our dentists to clean your teeth. It reduces the need for uncomfortable tools. Patients with sensitive teeth will love it as it substantially reduces pain. If you dread going to the dentist, we hope this will make your experience more pleasant.
