Just as x-rays have been replaced by digital high-definition x-rays; teeth impressions have been replaced by 3D teeth scanning; wire braces have been replaced by computer generated precision clear trays to straighten teeth now the most important aspect of dental care – hygiene care to ensure the maximum longevity of your dentition has been superseded by the greatest advance in hygiene therapy concepts in over three decades: Guided Biofilm Therapy.
Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) uses advanced powder formulations, delivered using computer-controlled precision instruments, at body temperature to create the most comfortable, thorough and gentle hygiene experience available. Maximum benefit with minimal tooth sensitivity.
- HARMFUL BACTERIA CAN BE SEEN AND REMOVED EASILY
Dental Biofilm ( a sticky film with plaque and tartar) is the primary cause of;
- Gum Disease
- Tooth Decay
- Implant Infections
The biofilm on your teeth is disclosed by using a specialised soluble dye to highlight the “at risk areas”. These areas are then targeted ensuring efficiency, effectiveness and comfort. Working with your hygienist, a homeware program tailored to your particular needs is developed to ensure that you achieve the maximum benefit from your hygiene care.
This treatment is user-friendly and comfortable for all age groups. Painting the biofilm ensures that the treatment is more interactive especially for our young people. Unlike conventional ultrasonic instruments, this technology is safe for most medical conditions.
- PEACE AND QUIET – AT LAST!
No more high-pitched whine or vibration thanks to the precision Swiss componentry. This creates a relaxing experience with a clean and fresh mouth at the end of the treatment.
- LEADING HEALTH – LETS PREVENT AND MAINTAIN TO PROTECT YOURSELF
To maximise the longevity of your dentition and minimise the need for repeat dental treatment it is essential to visit your dental hygiene therapist regularly based on your risk profile as identified by your dental team. GBT is a collection of the latest concepts designed to help you tackle gum disease, tooth decay and disease around implants.
Did you know Gum Disease may increase the risk of developing Systemic Diseases including;
- Respiratory Disorders
- Dementia and Alzheimer’s
- STAIN REMOVAL - WITH NO MORE POLISHING PASTE
The fine, dissolvable powder, mixed with warm water, helps to gently remove tough staining without touching the teeth. This ensures the teeth, restorations and appliances are not scratched or damaged unlike polishing paste and many toothpastes.
The technology is not just for the teeth. It can used safely and comfortably on varying areas. It is effective and gentle on the soft tissues, restorations and teeth
- MINIMALLY INVASIVE
GBT reduces the need for uncomfortable hand or sonic instruments and abrasive polishing tools. This treatment preserves the tooth’s natural enamel and leaves your teeth feeling smoother and more hygienic than ever before.
- EFFICIENT & TIMESAVING
Because the bacterial biofilm can be seen, your Hygiene Therapist can target these areas more efficiently. This makes your experience more comfortable and pleasurable.
- BACTERIA FIGHTING
The active ingredients in the fine powder alters the DNA of harmful bacteria. This stops fast reproduction. If biofilm is minimised the risk of gum disease, tooth decay and dental infections drops.
