The GBT APPROACH

Guided Biofilm Therapy is the systematic professional approach and predictable solution for the treatment and management of plaque, calculus, and stains from natural teeth, restorations, and dental implant using state of the art AIRFLOW®, PERIOFLOW®, and PIEZON® technologies.

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is the new state of the art, effective and gentle system in the prevention, maintenance, and treatment of removing plaque, calculus, and stains from natural teeth, restorations, and implant. It is also efficient, comfortable, and safe.

GBT is a Game Changer

  • THE MINIMALLY INVASIVE WAY
  • NO MORE RUBBER CUPS
  • NO MORE BRUSHES
  • NO MORE PASTE
  • LESS USE OF POWER AND HAND INSTRUMENTATION

GBT Approach is best for :

  • Highly sensitive patient or anxious patient who dislike the noise when cleaning the teeth Smoker patients and heavy tea and coffee drinker with brown staining on teeth
  • Patients who have dental implants.
  • Patients who have orthodontic braces/brackets.
  • All other patients who would like a gentler, more comfortable, and more effective cleaning
  • experience.

The traditional way of cleaning the teeth

Traditionally, we often use an ultrasonic scaler (the vibrating tool) that breaks away the hard deposits on the teeth. The use of manual scaling is sometimes necessary to remove stubborn calculus on hard to reach areas and then followed with the use of a rotary polishing cup and paste to remove soft plaque and light stains from the teeth.

This is often quite messy, time-consuming, and leaves you with the feeling that you have sand in your mouth after the treatment.

The Airflow Prophylaxis Master Difference

When using the Air-flow prophylaxis master device, your Dentist /Hygienist will first place a purple dye on the teeth to shows where the plaque /biofilm resides in the mouth – biofilm being the main cause of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. This is a great motivational tool to show the patient the areas on their teeth they missed with brushing.

Our dentist/ hygienist will then give you a few tips or tricks on how to get to those areas to improve oral health and hygiene.

Then comes the Airflow and Perioflow approach, the device uses a regulated pressurized spray of warm water, air, and a fine minimally less invasive powder to comfortably and easily removes biofilm, stains, and young calculus on teeth supra and sub-gingivally.

This latest technology in preventative care can easily get into tight spaces in-between the teeth without needing to come into direct contact with your gums and teeth.

It reduces the time in which the ultrasonic tip is needed and with the use of the PIEZON® technology NO PAIN* PS ( Perio Slim) tip, it removes calculus around dental implants, teeth and restoration without causing any change on tooth or implant surface.

The PIEZON® PS tip is NO PAIN is ideal for Supportive Periodontal Therapy (SPT), highly effective and comfortable to the patient.

In some instances, the Dentist/Hygienist will still need to use manual scaling to remove stubborn calculus on your teeth however, it minimizes the time and the need to scale every tooth in your mouth.
