GBT has transformed
dental hygiene for
our patients

GBT is the latest dental hygiene treatment which replaces traditional cleaning methods for a revolutionary system that offers pain-free oral health care.

The system uses ‘Air Flow’ technology which is a combination of warm water, air and soft powder, to remove biofilm or bacteria in the mouth.

Dental biofilm is a sticky film made up of a collection of microorganisms, mainly bacteria that grow on the surfaces in the mouth. It is the main factor in tooth decay, gum disease (Periodontitis) and infections around implants (Perio-implantitis). Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis or diabetes.

  • GBT prevents and treats gum disease and helps maintain good oral health. It is the least invasive, most comfortable, safe and efficient way to remove biofilm and is proven by scientific evidence.
  • It is gentle on your soft tissues, restorations, orthodontic braces, implants and your teeth.
  • It is one of the most minimally invasive treatment for oral biofilm management in patients with perio-implantitis.

Guided Biofilm Therapy FAQs
Does GBT hurt?

You do not need to worry about it being painful or uncomfortable therefore it is also particularly popular with children or if you suffer from exposed dentine and suffer from hypersensitivity. You will receive the highest quality of treatment without the discomfort.

Can I have GBT if I’m wearing braces?

If you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, you might find it a challenge to clean your appliances as do your Clinicians if using only traditional methods to remove biofilm. You are more at risk of getting caries and periodontal disease. It is highly recommended to have regular professional oral hygiene. GBT not only helps with motivation, it allows for more effective and safe removal of biofilm.

Does GBT remove staining from teeth?

GBT is a superior option to remove stains without abrasive polishing pastes and rubber cups or polishing brushes. It is advised prior to having teeth whitening for better results. Regular oral hygiene, combined with professional measures keeps biofilm under control – for a better oral and systemic health.

Is GBT regulated?

GBT follows the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) recommendations on Professional Mechanical Plaque Removal (PMPR) and Oral Hygiene Instructions (OHI) for Home Care of the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP).
