Implant biofilm removal and surface decontamination.

GalvoSurge® effectively removes biofilm from dental implants affected by peri-implantitis, leaving implants clean and ready for reosseointegration.1,2,3,4,5

GalvoSurge® has revolutionized the treatment of peri-implantitis by the introduction of electrolysis to clean and decontaminate affected dental implants. The biofilm, one of the main causes of the inflammatory response in the peri-implant tissue, and all connected microorganisms are reliably removed in just one step. This is done by controlled application of low voltage to the metallic implant and simultaneous application of an electrolyte solution. The resulting reaction releases small hydrogen bubbles which completely detach the biofilm from the implant surface.

Features and benefits


Procedure takes only 2 minutes.


Clinically proven to reliably remove biofilm and prepare the implant for re-osseointegration.


Extra low voltage, gentle to soft and hard tissue.

What can you do in just 2 minutes?

See it to believe it

The GalvoSurge Dental Implant Cleaning System is an innovative electrolytic treatment that can be used in the upper or lower jaw to remove biofilm from already implanted, osseo-integrated, electrically conductive dental implants. To witness this revolution, request a free demo session with your local Straumann sales representative.
