Guided Biofilm Therapy

Guided Biofilm Therapy

Developed in collaboration with universities and dental practices, GBT is a concept designed for contemporary prophylaxis. Based on decades of scientific knowledge and evidence, GBT is the next step in modern prophylaxis concepts.

The GBT concept ensures a systematic and quality-orientated approach, covering greeting of the patient, diagnostic data collection, everyday oral hygiene advice, professional tooth cleaning, the dentist’s final diagnosis and check-ups, and chemically supported plaque removal, as well as recalls. Alongside the disclosing of the supragingival biofilm, the process of professional tooth cleaning has changed considerably since Axelsson and Lindhe’s work.

The eight steps that comprise GBT can be adapted to the treatment, from initial therapy to maintenance therapy. GBT is for healthy patients and for patients with dental caries (especially in the initial stages), gingivitis, periodontitis, peri-implant mucositis or peri-implantitis.

Modern, safe and painless 

This contemporary approach begins with sub- and supragingival biofilm removal using air-polishing technology with AIRFLOW® PLUS® Powder. This erythritol-based powder guarantees targeted, gentle, risk-orientated removal of the biofilm to support the initial diagnosis.

This is followed by the minimally invasive removal of mineralised build-up with PIEZON® NO PAIN. This approach has many additional benefits, including short treatment times and maximum comfort for both the technician and the patient. GBT is minimally invasive. Polishing paste and rubber cups are no longer necessary.

With GBT, we can finally carry out professional biofilm management effectively, gently, safely, quickly, comfortably and without pain.
