GBT Hygiene – Guided Biofilm Therapy
Good periodontal- gum and bone health
Traditionally dentists have advised the regular cleaning of teeth using a scaler with cold water followed by polishing the teeth .For those who have endured this process will recall how sensitive it can be and even painful. Reversible gingivitis can often be cured with better maintenance but often patients don’t quite know how to clean their teeth efficiently and effectively. With advanced periodontal disease this can be even more concerning, and harder to treat which is why we have invested in the most advanced equipment to help clean your teeth and maintain good oral health.
THE MINIMALLY INVASIVE WAY
- NO MORE cold water
- NO MORE BRUSHES or rubber cups
- NO MORE PASTE
- LESS USE OF POWER AND HAND INSTRUMENTATION

Dental biofilm is the main etiologic factor for caries, periodontal and peri-implant infections. Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis or diabetes.
Regular oral hygiene, combined with professional measures keeps biofilm under control – for a better oral and systemic health. Axelsson and Lindhe established preventive dentistry in the 1970’s with studies and clinical protocols based on prophylaxis in “recall hours”.
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).
