I discovered GBT a year and a half ago and have been a fan ever since. The treatment is effective and gentle, the use of warm water makes it very comfortable. The result is exceptional.

MAKE ME SMILE
Professional tooth cleaning is necessary to deliver a beautiful smile and to maintain healthy teeth. It removes harmful plaque (called biofilm) on teeth and gums. It is the only way to prevent gum disease (periodontitis) and tooth decay (caries), both identified as common diseases by the WHO*.

WHAT CONSUMERS SAID
A study* conducted by Germany’s Stiftung Warentest (a consumer advocacy foundation) revealed significant shortcomings in conventional professional tooth cleaning. The old method using brushes, “polishing paste” and handheld instruments only removes 50% of biofilm in areas that are difficult to reach. Removing no more than half of the biofilm is simply unacceptable because the infection continues to progress. Also, the lack of a common clinical protocol contributed to major differences in terms of final results. Finally, patients seldom received follow-up instructions for proper oral hygiene care at home.*July 2015
It was about time that Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) was developed to replace the old methods of the ‘60s
THE 8 STEPS OF THE GBT PROTOCOL:
CLEAN TEETH, HEALTHY BODY
- Caries, bad breath, tooth loss, implant loss
- Gingivitis = gum bleeding
- Periodontal disease = gum infections, receding gums
- Studies show that biofilm increases the risk of Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease, premature birth, respiratory disorders, diabetes and more...
NO MORE FEAR, NO MORE PAIN
A visit to the dentist is often still associated with pain and a lot of fear. This is also true with professional tooth cleaning. Unfortunately, this old fashion method has not changed much since 1960. Most practitioners continue to use sharp instruments to scrape deep below the gumline on the roots of teeth. Also abrasive “polishing paste” is not needed anymore, thus preventing loss of tooth structure.
