GBT FAQs

  • Why should I see a hygienist?

    A comprehensive GBT & Airflow hygiene appointment is an effective way of removing harmful plaque and tartar that, if left uncleaned, can cause periodontitis (also known as gum disease).

    Strong, fully functioning teeth, without disease and pain, are achievable and you are never too old, nor is it too late to start taking proper care of your teeth and gums. We are passionate about prevention and encourage patients that with regular dental health assessments, therapy and advice from our hygienists, you will be able to maintain a healthy smile.

    Make regular dental hygiene visits part of your routine now and you can stay on top of your oral health and avoid those unwanted surprises.



  • What is dental biofilm?

    Dental biofilm, commonly known as dental plaque, is a sticky film of bacteria and other microorganisms that forms on the teeth and gumline. It is a natural and continuous process that occurs when bacteria in the mouth adhere to the teeth and begin to multiply, forming a thin layer of biofilm.

    Dental biofilm can lead to dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease if it is not removed regularly through proper oral hygiene practices such as brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. When plaque is not removed, it can harden and form tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. Therefore, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene habits to prevent the buildup of dental biofilm and maintain healthy teeth and gums.

  • Will I benefit more from GBT & Airflow therapy rather than a traditional scale and polish?

    GBT (Guided Biofilm Therapy) and Airflow therapy are advanced dental cleaning techniques that have several advantages over traditional scale and polish procedures. Here are a few reasons why you might consider GBT and Airflow therapy:

    1. More effective removal of biofilm: GBT and Airflow therapy use a combination of ultrasonic scalers, air polishing, and stain removal devices to remove biofilm more effectively than traditional scaling and polishing techniques. This means that you are less likely to develop cavities or gum disease after the procedure.
    2. Gentler on teeth and gums: Traditional scaling and polishing can sometimes cause discomfort, especially if you have sensitive teeth or gums. Our experienced hygienists use state-of-the-art equipment and materials to perform GBT procedures. This includes using advanced ultrasound instruments and air-polishing systems that allow your hygiene treatment to be carried out in the least invasive way, with the highest level of comfort, safety and efficiency. Enjoy a spa-like experience by selecting your very own water temperature with 5 levels to choose from, between unheated, 25°C, 30°C, 35°C and 40°; ideal for children and sensitive patients. 
    3. Better stain removal: Airflow therapy uses a fine powder that is propelled onto the teeth to remove stains caused by smoking, coffee, tea, or red wine. This technique can remove stubborn stains that are difficult to remove with traditional scaling and polishing.

    Overall, GBT and Airflow therapy offer a more advanced and effective cleaning experience that can help improve your oral health and leave your teeth looking and feeling great.
