MAKE ME SMILE

Professional tooth cleaning is necessary to deliver a beautiful smile and to maintain healthy teeth. It removes harmful plaque (called biofilm) on teeth and gums. It is the only way to prevent gum disease (periodontitis) and tooth decay (caries), both identified as common diseases by the WHO*.

ORAL BIOFILM CAUSES DENTAL DISEASE, BUT NOT ONLY

The bacteria in oral biofilm damage the teeth and the supporting structures such as the gums and bone that hold the teeth in place. But there is more: bacteria also find their way deeper into the body and may cause serious diseases over time. Studies have found that oral biofilm may lead to diabetes as well as cardiovascular and other common diseases. In addition, biofilm calcifies to become ugly tartar. Oral biofilm must be removed - on a regular basis, without pain, gently and effectively. The best way? GUIDED BIOFILM THERAPY

GUIDED BIOFILM THERAPY

In collaboration with universities and dentists, EMS has developed a clinical protocol designed to treat biofilm and maintain healthy teeth over time. This protocol, called GUIDED BIOFILM THERAPY, combines professional tooth cleaning at the dentist’s office with proper dental care practiced at home. There is no better way to keep harmful biofilm under control.

PAINFREE

Professional tooth cleaning with GUIDED BIOFILM THERAPY makes you feel good. A cleaning session is like a wellness spa experience. The treatment is painless and does not damage the teeth. GBT is today’s game changer and has nothing in common with the old dental hygiene methods from the ‘60s.
