Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

Visiting your dental professional is an important part of managing not only your oral health but your overall health as well.

This is why our office has invested in a new treatment method that is safe, minimally invasive, and more comfortable for patients.

This advanced system is called Guided Biofilm Therapy. It utilizes the modern and innovative AIRFLOW® and PIEZON® Swiss-made technologies to help remove biofilm (plaque) and calculus in a more efficient and comfortable way.

Dental biofilm is a colony of bacteria (generally not visible to the naked eye) that builds up on our teeth over time. Biofilm can travel throughout our bodies and exacerbate many oral and overall health conditions, such as: tooth decay, gum disease, heart disease, diabetes, respiratory illnesses, Alzheimer’s, and autoimmune diseases.

Ineffective removal of the biofilm can lead to further inflammation, infection and overall disease progression.

  1. ASSESS Evaluating Your Oral Health Status Your teeth and gums are examined to help determine the right therapy for optimal treatment and comfort.
  2. DISCLOSE Making the Bacteria (Biofilm) In Your Mouth Visible Biofilm is nearly invisible to the naked eye. It can only be removed completely after making it visible with a disclosing solution.
  3. MOTIVATE Educate and Encourage Based on your own risk assessment, we will discuss and demonstrate a personal home-care regimen so that you can manage biofilm at home.
