GBT has allowed dental hygienists to transform the patient experience by exchanging traditional cleaning methods for a revolutionary system that offers a lifetime of pain-free and fear-free oral healthcare for all ages.
GBT is carried out during Hygiene appointments and uses ‘AirFlow’ technology which is a combination of warm water, air and soft powder, to remove all bacteria (biofilm) in the mouth that contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.
GBT is highly effective, minimally invasive, and gentle, meaning that people with gum disease, braces, crowns, bridges, veneers and implants are eligible for treatment. These procedures are so gentle they can be used on natural teeth, restorations, orthodontic braces, implants, the tongue and gums.
GBT is a great option for those who want to remove teeth staining from coffee, tea, wine and tobacco consumption, and is advised before receiving teeth whitening to achieve maximum results.
All our teeth are covered in a sticky and colourless film made up of bacteria, known as biofilm. If this biofilm is not removed, it can build up around the area between the teeth and the gums, resulting in gum disease (the first sign of which is bleeding gums).
The bacteria in biofilm can also break down enamel when it encounters sugary foods and drinks, ultimately causing tooth decay.
Today’s technology enables patients to have effective and pain-free professional dental hygiene care, GBT is safe for everyone as it’s pain free and helps promote a healthy smile.
GBT prevents decay and gum disease in children and adults. No biofilm = No tooth decay.Back to General Dentistry
