Understanding Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

Guided Biofilm Therapy is a comprehensive approach to dental hygiene that goes beyond traditional methods. It consists of treatment protocols based on individual patient diagnosis and risk assessment, aiming to achieve optimal results.


This innovative approach targets dental biofilm,  the soft plaque that builds over our teeth, and it’s considered a major contributor to oral diseases such as caries and periodontitis, soft plaque is full of live bacteria! .By utilizing advanced technology to precisely locate and remove biofilm, we ensure a thorough and efficient cleaning process.


Why is the GBT the gold standard in dental hygiene? 

GBT has emerged as a game-changer in oral biofilm management, offering several advantages over traditional methods. Research has shown that GBT is truly beneficial in removing biofilm around the tooth and implant structures, resulting in better or comparable clinical outcomes than conventional polishing and manual traditional instrumentation, the therapy uses a hand piece that releases a water spray with a special polishing powder that can effectively remove biofilm very comfortably. 


The settings can be customized, including temperature and power to deliver very effective results in a super comfortable environment. GBT also leads to a reduction in the microbial load and inflammatory cytokines, contributing to improved oral health
