I’m excited to debate with Dr. Wühr the significance, for all Canadian dental professionals, to listen to and find out about Guided Biofilm Remedy and the way it can efficiently remodel your affected person expertise, all whereas growing the return on funding to your dental hygiene remedy.

Let’s get began. Dr. Wühr, are you able to please inform us concerning the story of EMS and the way it’s positioned as a pacesetter in prevention and prophylaxis worldwide?


Dr. Ernst hr

In 1981, Electro Medical System (EMS) was based within the Vallée du Joux, a tiny valley in Switzerland, and this previous yr, we celebrated its fortieth anniversary. We relocated to Nyon in 1995, subsequent to the lake of Geneva. EMS is devoted to the dental business, the urology world, and ache remedy, providing scientific options to deal with most skeleton pathologies. EMS shapes the historical past and the way forward for set up administration with profitable guided set up administration.

Vallée du Joux, Switzerland, the place the EMS Story Started

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

Electro Medical System’s success relies on our 4 pillars.

The primary pillar instantly pertains to the scientifically confirmed technique of GBT, and this type of proof is critical in at this time’s quickly evolving world of dentistry.

Our breakthrough merchandise, corresponding to prophylaxis, are our second pillar. These product milestones are crucial for the following era so rising dental professionals can clearly perceive that the whole lot is shifting in direction of enabling them to optimally take away biofilm.

The third pillar is the EMS steady management. We’re at all times making an attempt our greatest to boost the message of our scientifically confirmed proof in a approach that each one business professionals can profit. The Swiss Dental Academy strives to coach customers on using Guided Biofilm Remedy in essentially the most environment friendly approach attainable.
















The fourth and last pillar is at all times placing our prospects first to make sure their satisfaction with GBT and creating a novel buyer relationship. We would like to have the ability to give our sufferers the chance to get pleasure from pure, wholesome enamel, in addition to implants. These 4 pillars are the inspiration of Electro Medical System’s core mission to make sure we’re providing clinicians our full assist.


Chrissy Ford

Talking of the chance to supply sufferers profitable implant therapies, that was coincidentally my unique intention of changing into a GBT coach. I wanted to discover a higher solution to handle our implants — and we have now discovered it!

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 hr

I believe it’s vital 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 machine. 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 chronic course of.

Guided Biofilm Remedy is knowledgeable oral hygiene therapy in dentistry, and was beforehand identified 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 client, our valued clinicians, a protocol that they’ll 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 checklist of continual ailments which might be essentially the most widespread. Greater than 15 p.c of the grownup inhabitants in the USA undergo from reasonable to extreme periodontal illness. The business at the moment faces hygienist staffing shortages in practices, which is a major problem to navigate. The normal technique of delivering hygiene and non-surgical periodontal therapies has change into outdated. For instance, we have now an affiliation in Europe who’ve carried out exams with outcomes stating that 15 p.c of dentists utilizing the outdated, conventional strategies couldn’t ship 100% biofilm elimination.

We knew we wanted 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 have now stuffed a niche with Guided Biofilm Remedy, and we proceed to make modifications for the higher efficiently.


Chrissy Ford

I need to contact on what you talked about about calibration and innovation. I began my consulting enterprise as a result of I wished to see extra calibration. I used to be annoyed with having sufferers go to my apply, beforehand witnessing a distinct state of care at different practices, and I knew there was a niche 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 had been accessible for hygienists. Our jobs can change into irritating and stagnant at occasions. 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 workforce in Switzerland at EMS created this expertise with conserving the affected person expertise in thoughts?


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 objective and message in thoughts. After we had been creating the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp machine, we stored affected person expertise high of thoughts, however most significantly, we had been at all times serious about the dental skilled. If the clinician feels good and has the mandatory instruments to carry out a fantastic job clinically, the affected person expertise will naturally be in good palms.


“I really feel good”. What Extra can we ask from our sufferers!

The AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp is a unbelievable product and, for my part, the most effective units in at this time’s dental business. Nonetheless, the precise apply builder is GBT. In the long run, it’s the affected person expertise that issues most when GBT therapies are appropriately delivered. The Swiss Dental Academy is likely one of the most in depth coaching institutes within the dental world, and we take satisfaction in coaching hundreds of clinicians to allow them to ship optimum therapies to their valued sufferers. Simply final yr, we gave greater than 300 programs worldwide. We just lately began a sizeable affected person survey, have already got greater than 70 thousand questionnaires accomplished, and the outcomes are glorious. Sufferers are happy with the pain-free, Guided Biofilm Remedy, and plenty of at the moment are requesting it throughout their dental visits.

As a apply supervisor, we additionally ship out affected person surveys to higher perceive how we’re doing in our apply. Critiques are coming again with constructive mentions of GBT, as some sufferers have by no means skilled such a high-tech cleansing.

I need to speak extra concerning the idea of licensed GBT integration made attainable solely via coaching with EMS trainers and the Oral Science workforce of dental hygienists. Are you able to inform us why EMS selected Oral Science to be its premier associate to supply Guided Biofilm Remedy?


Dr. Ernst Wühr

Oral Science has not solely completely understood our mission however has been prepared to disrupt dentistry for the higher. Our mission is to combine GBT in dental clinics, which requires superior coaching and assist for clinicians. Integration isn’t attainable by EMS alone – it requires collaboration with a spotlight associate who has an identical mission in Canada. It’s helpful that Oral Science relies on a nationwide community in Canada and might adequately ship the GBT message and clarify its worth to Canadian clinicians.
