GBT is an innovative treatment that is offered by our Advanced Dentistry clinics.

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.

What to expect at a GBT Hygiene appointment

  1. Your mouth is checked to identify any dental decay or gum disease. This allows the hygienist to assess your treatment needs.
  2. Your Teeth are disclosed with a purple dye that makes biofilm visible. You are then shown any problem areas, which will help to personalise your oral hygiene routine. The colour will also guide the biofilm removal.
  3. Depending on your needs, a combination of up to three cleaning systems are used to gently remove biofilm, staining and light deposits. These procedures are so gentle they can be used on natural teeth, restorations, orthodontic braces, implants, the tongue and gums.
  4. The final check ensures all biofilm and deposits have been removed and screens one last time for any decay. Teeth are then protected with a fluoride seal.
  5. Based on your oral hygiene and a risk assessment, your next appointment will be scheduled. This is usually between 3 to 6 months.

Why everyone need hygiene appointments

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.
