GUIDED BIOFILM THERAPY leads the paradigm shift in professional prophylaxis based on latest scientific findings. In doing so it follows insights gained by employing the AIR- FLOW® method in this process, with the following findings:

  • Improves visibility of calculus
  • Minimises harmful oral bacteria
  • Significantly enhances patient comfort
  • Reduces effort and the strain on the practitioner when using ultrasonic devices
  • Saves time that can be better used for additional services such as assessment and diagnosis

x8 CE credits will be issued after a post-event quiz on the eCademy.  Your Certificate will be stored in your My Account profile page where your courses are listed.
