Dental is our ardour, and we’re consultants in eradicating biofilm because of the medical protocols of EMS Guided Biofilm Remedy. Biofilm is the basis reason for tooth decay, periodontitis, and peri-implantitis. Our purpose is to take away biofilm with GBT, however its success shouldn’t be solely from this technique.

We all know that Guided Biofilm Remedy is the mission of EMS right here in Canada. Are you able to inform us extra about how and why it was developed?
Dr. Ernst Wühr
I feel it’s essential to notice that GBT shouldn’t be solely provided in Canada. That stated, the journey in Canada began in 2019 after we registered the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp system. However eight months later, we had been hit with the unexpected circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. With practices closing their doorways, it was a protracted course of.
Guided Biofilm Remedy is knowledgeable oral hygiene remedy in dentistry, and was beforehand recognized for little or no, if not zero, innovation. And this isn’t only a assertion for Canada — it’s a worldwide assertion. It was crucial to supply the shopper, our valued clinicians, a protocol that they will confidently depend on and a technique that the affected person can depend upon confidently. GBT exists for standardization and since periodontal illness is excessive on the listing of persistent ailments which are probably the most widespread. Greater than 15 % of the grownup inhabitants in america undergo from reasonable to extreme periodontal illness. The trade at the moment faces hygienist staffing shortages in practices, which is a major problem to navigate. The standard technique of delivering hygiene and non-surgical periodontal therapies has change into outdated. For instance, we now have an affiliation in Europe who’ve carried out assessments with outcomes stating that 15 % of dentists utilizing the outdated, conventional strategies couldn’t ship one hundred pc biofilm removing.
We knew we wanted to behave on these outcomes and discover a extra superior strategy just because EMS was, and at all times has been, within the sector of periodontal illness. I strongly imagine we now have stuffed a spot with Guided Biofilm Remedy, and we proceed to make modifications for the higher efficiently.
I need to contact on what you talked about about calibration and innovation. I began my consulting enterprise as a result of I needed to see extra calibration. I used to be annoyed with having sufferers go to my apply, beforehand witnessing a unique state of care at different practices, and I knew there was a spot to fill. I used to be capable of deliver GBT and put all of it underneath one wheel. Being immersed in dentistry for fairly a while, it was evident that not many inventions had been out there for hygienists. Our jobs can change into irritating and stagnant at instances. In nearly 20 years of being a clinician, having one thing new has been very thrilling for the primary time.
Are you able to inform us how the crew in Switzerland at EMS created this know-how with retaining the affected person expertise in thoughts?
Dr. Ernst Wühr
Our slogan at EMS, which is acknowledged globally within the dental trade, is “I really feel good.” And EMS selected this with a objective and message in thoughts.

If the clinician feels good and has the required instruments to carry out a fantastic job clinically, the affected person expertise will naturally be in good arms.
