Dental Hygiene with Guided Biofilm Technology, For Extraordinarily Clean Teeth….

Uncover your irresistible smile with Guided Biofilm Technology

At American Smile we follow the Guided Biofilm Therapy protocol, which means minimally invasive, pain free, totally safe treatment.

This method, which is much more comfortable for the patient, uses a dye that reveals the existence of biofilm (bacterial plaque). Therefore, it is easier to identify the areas of a greater incidence of biofilm, and hygiene becomes more effective.

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is a new Swiss innovation that has allowed dental hygienists to enhance patient experience. 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 gums, resulting in gum disease (the first sign of which is bleeding gums).

The bacteria in biofilm can also break down enamel when it comes in contact with sugary foods and drinks, ultimately causing tooth decay. GBT uses AirFlow technology to remove all bacteria (biofilm) in the mouth that contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

Teeth Cleaning with Guided Biofilm

Dental biofilm - a thin layer of bacteria that covers the teeth - is the main factor in causing dental caries, gum disease and implant infections. Having this treatment helps to keep bacteria film under control.

Teeth hygiene with Guided Biofilm technology is ideal for patients who smoke, those who have bleeding gums, “bad breath” or those who require a more in-depth clean.

How does Guided Biofilm Therapy work?

  1. Teeth are disclosed with a 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Based on your oral hygiene and a risk assessment, your next appointment will be scheduled. This is usually between 3 to 6 months
