Guided Biofilm Therapy Benefits
The Enemy of a Healthy Mouth
Biofilm is the root of all evil in the mouth
Biofilm is the cause of tooth decay, periodontal disease and infections like wisdom tooth-related infections.
Biofilm removal can be extremely challenging mainly because it is so adherent to any surface it sticks to.
Incorrect or inefficient toothbrushing often leaves considerable quantities of biofilm attached in the mouth.
However, because it is hard to see, patients are often unaware of its presence, but its damage and disease activity continues.
How does Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) work?
The mouth is subject for bacteriological analysis to identify any tooth decay or gum disease. This allows your dental hygienist to assess your treatment needs.
Teeth are disclosed with a dye that makes the biofilm visible. The patient is then shown any problematic areas, which will help to personalise your oral hygiene routine. The colour will also serve as the guide in the biofilm removal.
Depending on the patient’s needs, a combination of up to three cleaning systems is used to gently remove the biofilm, staining and light deposits.
These procedures are so gentle that they can be used on natural teeth, restorations, orthodontic braces, implants, the tongue and gums.
The final check makes sure all biofilm and deposits have been removed and screens one last time for any remaining decay. Teeth are then sealed with a fluoride seal.
Based on oral hygiene and a risk assessment, the patient’s next appointment will be scheduled, usually between 3 to 6 months.
