What Is Guided Biofilm Therapy?

Guided Biofilm Therapy is a method of biofilm management. It consists of a variety of treatment protocols based on individual needs and diagnoses on a per-patient basis.

Dental biofilm is the main etiologic (…causing or contributing to the development of a disease or condition) factor for cavities and infections. In fact, periodontitis can increase a person’s risk of other systemic diseases such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, or diabetes.

The Prophylaxis Master from AIRFLOW® utilizes an all-natural low abrasion powder to remove biofilm from teeth, resulting in a healthier cleaner mouth.

Guided Biofilm Therapy be applied to:

  • Prohylaxis/General Dentistry
  • Orthodontics
  • Implant Dentistry
  • Childrens Dentistry
  • Aesthetic/Cosmetic Dentistry

Let’s look at each of these areas a little further.

General Dentistry

The AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master is a predictable and completely safe procedure for the removal of biofilm, stains, and calculus from teeth, implants, restorations, and orthodontic appliances. When used in combination with all-natural PLUS powder it can be used safely and comfortably on all soft tissues including attached gingiva, mucosa, tongue, and palate.

It is also the only technology that allows the removal of biofilm from inaccessible areas such as deep pits and fissures, interdental spaces, misaligned areas, below crown margins, around peri-implant sulcus, recessions, and orthodontic appliances efficiently and in a minimally invasive way.

GBT therapy using the Prophy Master also helps early detection of white spots and cavities (caries) thus enabling us to avoid unnecessary aggressive dental treatments in the future which saves you money.

But best of all using this technology we are able to preserve the integrity of your natural teeth, implants, restorations, and soft tissues which allow you to enjoy a higher quality of life.



AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master with PLUS powder is the only solution that can effectively clean biofilm around orthodontic appliances. It provides 100% accessibility around orthodontic brackets without needing to remove wires, ligatures, or elastics. It can also safely and efficiently remove all biofilm without damaging or altering the surface of your braces hence preserving its full bond strength.

The all-natural PLUS powder is also comfortable on the gingiva and soft tissues which provides a much better patient experience.


Implant Dentistry

Childrens Dentistry

Let’s face it, going to the dentist is not usually high on our to-do lists, and even less so for our kids. But, when utilizing AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master with PLUS powder your little one will love their visit. Why? Because AIRFLOW® treatment with the PLUS powder is comfortable, noise-free, and has a naturally sweet taste that kids will love.

It is also extremely effective in milk (baby) teeth and soft tissues. Another benefit to this treatment for kids is the surface cleanliness which allows for better fluoride absorption.


Cosmetic Dentistry

The AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master with PLUS powder removes biofilm from your porcelain veneers, CEREC dental crowns, and aesthetic restorations in a safe and efficient way, and of course, it does not scratch and is not abrasive to any aesthetic restoration.

The PLUS powder is extremely fine and gentle and can be safely and comfortably applied around sensitive gingiva. It is ideal for use to clean around margin edges on crowns, veneers, overlays, and onlays, and can be used prior to bleaching, placing restorations, and taking impressions for optimum results.


What Is The Aim of Guided Biofilm Therapy?

Although there are multiple benefits to GBT we feel there are 3 main aims.

They are:

  • Preserve Healthy Teeth – By minimizing the use of power and hand instruments we are able to enable our patients to enjoy their natural teeth and dental implants for a much longer time.
  • Prevent and Detect Cavities Earlier – Cavities often develop in areas that are not easily accessible. AIRFLOW® cleans it all and is minimally invasive. Biofilm is also not always visible to the naked eye. Disclosing biofilm helps to remove all of it. No biofilm = No cavities.
  • Maintain Braces (Orthodontic Appliances) and Dental Implants – Because of the minimally invasive nature of the PLUS powder we can better protect implant restorations eliminating scratches on your expensive investment. It also inhibits stains and discolorations allowing you to show off your amazing smile.
