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 trade, the urology world, and ache remedy, providing medical 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 specialists in eradicating biofilm because of the medical protocols of EMS Guided Biofilm Remedy. Biofilm is the foundation reason for tooth decay, periodontitis, and peri-implantitis. Our purpose is to take away biofilm with GBT, however its success just isn’t solely from this methodology.
Electro Medical System’s success is predicated on our 4 pillars.
The primary pillar instantly pertains to the scientifically confirmed methodology of GBT, and this type of proof is critical in at present’s quickly evolving world of dentistry.
Our breakthrough merchandise, comparable to prophylaxis, are our second pillar. These product milestones are crucial for the subsequent era so rising dental professionals can clearly perceive that all the pieces is shifting in the direction of enabling them to optimally take away biofilm.

Talking of the chance to supply sufferers profitable implant therapies, that was coincidentally my unique intention of turning into a GBT coach. I wanted to discover a higher strategy to handle our implants — and we’ve got 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 Wühr
I believe it’s vital to notice that GBT just isn’t solely supplied in Canada. That mentioned, the journey in Canada began in 2019 after we registered the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp system. 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 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 mandatory to supply the shopper, 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 record of continual ailments which can be essentially the most widespread. Greater than 15 p.c of the grownup inhabitants in the US undergo from reasonable to extreme periodontal illness. The trade at the moment faces hygienist staffing shortages in practices, which is a major problem to navigate. The standard methodology of delivering hygiene and non-surgical periodontal therapies has turn out to be outdated. For instance, we’ve got 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 one hundred pc biofilm removing.
We knew we wanted to behave on these outcomes and discover a extra superior strategy just because EMS was, and at all times has been, within the sector of periodontal illness. I strongly consider 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 wished to see extra calibration. I used to be pissed off with having sufferers go to my observe, beforehand witnessing a unique state of care at different practices, and I knew there was a spot to fill. I used to be in a position to deliver GBT and put all of it beneath 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 turn out to be 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 crew 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 trade, is “I really feel good.” And EMS selected this with a objective and message in thoughts. Once we have been growing the AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp system, we saved affected person expertise prime of thoughts, however most significantly, we have been at all times occupied with the dental skilled. If the clinician feels good and has the required instruments to carry out an awesome job clinically, the affected person expertise will naturally be in good arms.
“I really feel good”. What Extra can we ask from our sufferers!
The AIRFLOW® Prophylaxis Grasp is a improbable product and, in my view, probably the greatest gadgets in at present’s dental trade. Nevertheless, the precise observe builder is GBT. Ultimately, it’s the affected person expertise that issues most when GBT therapies are accurately 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 wonderful. 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 observe supervisor, we additionally ship out affected person surveys to higher perceive how we’re doing in our observe. Opinions are coming again with optimistic mentions of GBT, as some sufferers have by no means skilled such a high-tech cleansing.
I need to discuss extra concerning the idea of licensed GBT integration made potential solely via coaching with EMS trainers and the Oral Science crew of dental hygienists. Are you able to inform us why EMS selected Oral Science to be its premier companion to supply Guided Biofilm Remedy?

Oral Science has not solely completely understood our mission however has been keen to disrupt dentistry for the higher.
