GUIDED BIOFILM THERAPY (GBT)
Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is a Swiss innovation currently being offered by London Hygienist. GBT has allowed dental hygienists to transform the patient experience by exchanging traditional cleaning methods for a revolutionary system that offers a lifetime of pain-free and fear-free oral healthcare for all ages.
GBT is carried out during regular cleanings and uses 'AirFlow' technology which is a combination of warm water, air and soft powder, to remove all bacteria (biofilm) in the mouth that contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.
GBT is highly effective, minimally invasive and gentle, meaning that people with gum disease, braces, crowns, bridges, veneers and implants are eligible for treatment. These procedures are so gentle they can be used on natural teeth, restorations, orthodontic braces, implants, the tongue and gums.
GBT is a great option for those who want to remove teeth staining from coffee, tea, wine and tobacco consumption, and is advised before receiving tooth whitening to achieve better results.
The Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) process:
Using warm water and pain-free technology, deposits are removed from the teeth quietly and gently.
Same as 'Airflow' but the specially designed nozzle cleans deeper into gum pockets.
One last check to ensure that your mouth is clean before adding a protective varnish to the teeth.
Based on your needs, set your next appointment.
Every appointment starts with a full assessment of the teeth and gum health. You'll also get an oral cancer screening at every visit.
Using a dye makes biofilm visible, highlighting any problematic areas and guiding the cleaning. No more dye = no more biofilm.
Based on your needs and preferences, you'll then received a tailored oral hygiene routine to maximse your home care.
Using a combination of warm water, air and fine powder biofilm, stains and early calculus are gently removed from the teeth and gums.
Why you need hygiene appointments
Our teeth are covered in a sticky and colourless film made up of bacteria, known as biofilm. If this biofilm is not removed, it can build up around the area between the teeth and the gums, resulting in gum disease (the first sign of which is bleeding gums). The bacteria in biofilm can also break down enamel when it comes in contact with sugary foods and drinks, ultimately causing tooth decay.
Today’s technology enables patients to have effective and pain-free professional dental hygiene care.
