Biofilm Removal

The new and improved scale and clean technology!

Dental plaque, also known as biofilm, is a thin sheet that covers your teeth, containing millions of thriving bacteria.

Dental biofilm is insidious. You can’t see it. You can’t smell it. You can’t feel it. Biofilm is the main cause of tooth decay and gum disease.

Recent studies have highlighted the downfalls of using conventional scaling instruments and abrasive polishing paste. In the areas of the mouth that are most difficult to reach, these instruments remove as little as 50% of biofilm, which is simply unacceptable.

At Collins Dental House we are dedicated to our patient’s oral hygiene and pride ourselves on our use of the most thoroughly researched, up to date technology. The new AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master uses a form of guided biofilm therapy to remove all effective biofilm, surface discolourations and calculus. The technology utilises warm streams of water, air, and a fine powder in a minimally invasive manner.
