What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?

Guided Biofilm Therapy, or GBT, is an innovative and revolutionary approach to dental hygiene treatment, promising outstanding results. It uses Airflow technology to gently remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth, meaning the more invasive and uncomfortable scale and polish method can be a thing of the past.

GBT is a game changer for your oral health. The controlled jet of warm water, air and bicarbonate can reach all areas of your mouth to give an exceptional clean and reduce the risk of gum disease and decay. It is completely pain-free, making it an ideal option for nervous patients, or those wary of having traditional hygiene treatment. GBT can be used to great effect on your natural teeth, gums and tongue, but also if you have braces fitted or any dental restorations, including dental implants, crowns, bridges and veneers. Guided Biofilm Therapy truly gives an incredible clean with outstanding results.

What can I expect from GBT hygiene treatment?

Initially, we fully assess the health of your teeth and gums, examining all areas of your mouth and checking for any signs of gum disease or decay. If it is your first GBT appointment, we explain the process to you and invite you to ask any questions.

We apply a specially formulated dye to your teeth to highlight the biofilm (plaque) and reveal the areas of your mouth that need the most attention. As the biofilm is easily visible, we are able to remove it much faster and with more accuracy than traditional hygiene treatment.

Using the Airflow system, we can remove the plaque from your teeth in a completely pain-free and gentle way. We may use several types of Airflow to give you the very best results, and even remove stains to get your smile sparkling bright once more. After a final assessment of your mouth, to make sure all the plaque has been successfully eradicated, we give you some advice about how to keep up with an excellent oral hygiene routine at home.

Frequently asked questions
1 Is Guided Biofilm Therapy safe?

Yes, Guided Biofilm Therapy is completely safe and highly effective. The gentle and minimally invasive nature of the treatment means it won’t damage your teeth in any way, and can even be used safely if you have braces, veneers, crowns or other dental restorations.

2 Can Guided Biofilm Therapy whiten my teeth?

Guided Biofilm Therapy can remove stains from your teeth, and they will likely appear whiter and brighter once the build-ups of plaque have been successfully cleaned away. Your teeth will undoubtedly have an improved appearance after GBT, but the goal of the treatment is not to whiten teeth. If you are interested in whitening your teeth, please talk to us about our teeth whitening treatment options.

3 Will Guided Biofilm Therapy hurt?

Guided Biofilm Therapy is a completely pain-free treatment, using state-of-the-art Airflow technology to gently and carefully remove plaque and bacteria from your smile. Many patients prefer Guided Biofilm Therapy to the traditional ‘scale and polish’ hygiene treatment, as there is no need for uncomfortable scraping or scaling to successfully remove plaque.

4 How often do I need to have GBT treatment?

Every patient is different, so the amount of time you need to leave between your GBT appointments will vary too. Many patients choose to book their hygiene appointments in line with their six-monthly dental check up, although you may be able to leave a longer time between hygiene visits. We are happy to advise you when to book your next appointment based on your oral health.

5 What is gum disease?

Gum disease is caused by deposits of plaque – the sticky, bacteria-filled substance that builds up daily on the surface of our teeth. If this is not regularly removed, it can lead to inflammation of the gums, which can develop into advanced gum disease, known as periodontitis. This condition cannot be reversed, only managed, and, if left untreated, can lead to wobbly teeth and even tooth loss.

6 Can I see the hygienist without going to the dentist first?

You can see our dental hygienist without having to be referred by your dentist, although many patients prefer to book their check up appointments at the same time. If you want to make sure your teeth and gums are in great shape, we welcome you to book a Guided Biofilm Therapy appointment. You may also wish to have Guided Biofilm Therapy to make sure your teeth are in the best condition before a special event.
