Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is a dental cleaning procedure that aims to remove dental biofilm, commonly known as dental plaque, from teeth and gums. It is a comprehensive approach to oral hygiene that uses a combination of technologies and techniques to achieve optimal oral health. Traditional cleaning methods involve manual (hand) and ultrasonic (electronic) instruments. GBT, on the other hand, uses AIRFLOW®, PERIOFLOW®, and PIEZON® PS technologies (see below for descriptions) that deliver deeper cleaning without directly touching the teeth and gums.
GBT is becoming an increasingly popular method of dental cleaning because it is effective, efficient, minimally invasive, and comfortable for patients. By removing dental biofilm, GBT helps to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems, promoting a healthy smile.
GBT is also 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.
There are 8 steps to the GBT procedure:
These devices are used to gently remove biofilm, staining, and light deposits. These procedures are so gentle they can be used on natural teeth, restorations, orthodontic braces, implants, the tongue, and gums.
Guided Biofilm Therapy is important for oral health as it helps:
GBT is beneficial in every industry including General Dentistry, Orthodontics, Implantology, Pediatric Dentistry, Aesthetic Dentistry, Periodontology, Gerodontology, Endodontology, and Oral surgery.
