The best dental hygiene treatments put patient comfort first

The aspect of dental treatment that patients dread most is the possibility that it will be painful, or at the very least uncomfortable and something to be endured.

According to statistics from the Oral Health Foundation, almost half of UK adults fear the dentist and 12% suffer from extreme dental anxiety or phobia. It’s no wonder then that a comfortable experience is high on the list of patient priorities when contemplating a trip to the dentist.

At Carbasse Implant & Dental Centre, we are determined to do all we can to give our patients the best quality dental care and that includes the best dental hygiene treatments too. Depending upon individual sensitivities, patients can find even routine scaling and polishing uncomfortable.

And that got us thinking… What if we could provide a comfortable AND even more efficient hygiene appointment by investing in a brand-new piece of high-tech equipment?

Our Hygienist and Therapist, Joanne Downs is extremely pleased to now be able to offer air polishing to our hygiene patients, using our state-of-the-art EMS AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Master! Our patients love it.


The AIRFLOW system is a clever piece of technology that uses a controlled mix of water, compressed air and fine powder to comfortably and efficiently remove stains, plaque and calculus from the tooth.


AIRFLOW is a far more advanced and gentle form of stain removal than a traditional scale and polish as the handpiece doesn’t even come into contact with the teeth! It lets the water, air and powder do the job of removing the stains.


Unlike many systems, AIRFLOW uses warm water rather than cold, which makes it a much more comfortable experience, especially for patients who suffer from very sensitive teeth.


AIRFLOW is also extremely safe to use in the maintenance of dental restorations such as implants, crowns and veneers to help keep them clean. This helps in both the prevention and treatment of gum disease.

Marc Carbasse, our Implant Dentist says The EMS AIRFLOW system is ideal for gentle cleaning of implants and it’s been shown to deliver exceptional results. I recommend it to all my patients as it’s minimally invasive – which means maximum patient comfort.”

So, if your teeth are starting to stain or discolour from the effects of tea, coffee, smoking or spicy foods, there’s nothing stopping you booking probably the best dental hygiene appointment you’ve ever had.

Or if you’re a patient who visits us regularly for hygiene maintenance appointments, you can look forward to a more comfortable and efficient treatment that will leave your mouth feeling even more fresh, clean and gleaming.

AIRFLOW allows us to give our patients the increased comfort and great results they deserve. We hope that far from dreading your next appointment, you’ll look forward to it – and the clean and sparkling feeling you’ll have when you leave!
