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 necessary to notice that GBT just isn’t solely provided in Canada. That stated, the journey in Canada began in 2019 after we registered the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp machine. However eight months later, we have been hit with the unexpected circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. With practices closing their doorways, it was a chronic course of.
Guided Biofilm Remedy is an expert 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 world assertion. It was crucial to supply the shopper, our valued clinicians, a protocol that they will confidently depend on and a way that the affected person can rely upon confidently. GBT exists for standardization and since periodontal illness is excessive on the checklist of persistent ailments which are probably the most widespread. Greater than 15 % of the grownup inhabitants in the US undergo from average to extreme periodontal illness. The business at present faces hygienist staffing shortages in practices, which is a major problem to navigate. The standard methodology of delivering hygiene and non-surgical periodontal remedies has change into outdated. For instance, we’ve got an affiliation in Europe who’ve carried out assessments with outcomes stating that 15 % of dentists utilizing the outdated, conventional strategies couldn’t ship 100% biofilm elimination.
We knew we would have liked to behave on these outcomes and discover a extra superior method just because EMS was, and at all times has been, within the sector of periodontal illness. I strongly imagine we’ve got crammed a spot with Guided Biofilm Remedy, and we proceed to make adjustments 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 observe, beforehand witnessing a distinct state of care at different practices, and I knew there was a spot to fill. I used to be in a position to carry GBT and put all of it below one wheel. Being immersed in dentistry for fairly a while, it was evident that not many inventions have been obtainable for hygienists. Our jobs can change into irritating and stagnant at occasions. In virtually 20 years of being a clinician, having one thing new has been very thrilling for the primary time.

Dr. Ernst Wühr
Our slogan at EMS, which is acknowledged globally within the dental business, is “I really feel good.” And EMS selected this with a function and message in thoughts.
