Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

This scientifically proven process uses erythritol to remove harmful plaque, or biofilm. It uses a more gentle technique than sandblasting, and can help prevent bad breath, periodontitis, tooth decay and tooth loss.

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

Biofilm bacteria in the mouth can damage both your teeth and the surrounding area, in particular the gums and bones. Over time, this biofilm can also develop into tartar, or plaque. These bacteria can penetrate deep into the tissue and spread throughout the body. This can potentially lead to the development of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, while they have also been linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and pancreatic cancer.

Professional oral hygiene care involving guided biofilm therapy is a pleasant experience: the procedure feels closer to a spa therapy than dental treatment. Painless and very gentle on the teeth.

To carry out the treatment, we use AirFlow Master, a cutting-edge piece of equipment. Plaque staining helps to highlight any biofilm and plaque that is stuck to the surface of the teeth. This is then removed painlessly from the surface or, if necessary, from deeper pockets. High pressure air, warm water and erythritol dust exercise a gentle effect on the surface of the teeth, including implants.
