Tim Ives, Dental Hygienist & Post Graduate Teacher, UK
Having been a practicing clinician for many years, I can’t believe that I didn’t start using disclosing solution on every patient sooner. I can honestly say that having attended the EMS conference and met so many like-minded people, I have now changed my practice. I disclose every patient using the GC Tri Plaque Gel, which allows me to clearly see and differentiate cariogenic and periodontal pathogens. I can then ensure these are obliterated with the EMS AirFlow Plus Powder prior to using the EMS Piezo Fine Tips. This enables me to be more efficient, effective and above all it is safer and less uncomfortable for the patient. Something that I didn’t account for is the dialogue this treatment engenders with the patient. When they come back, they really want to know and see if they are improving their oral hygiene and if they are getting healthier.
In the dental world things don’t change overnight, but any clinician that starts to practice Guided Biofilm Therapy will ensure his patients are getting a first class standard of care and will therefore find his appointment book becomes very busy.. Thank you EMS for giving me this opportunity.
