Innovation from Switzerland – Guided Biofilm Therapy
Dentistry is an ever-changing industry. And when it comes to what patients refer to as ‘cleaning’, we’re always asking: ‘How can our dentists provide an efficient, yet minimally invasive, technique to clean teeth better and make the experience more comfortable for our patients?’
An innovative teeth-cleaning technique - Guided Biofilm Therapy - might be the answer.
Guided Biofilm Therapy is a hygiene technique that’s among the most up-to-date and scientifically proven, ensuring the best in dental cleaning. Through a controlled stream of air, water and very fine erythritol powder, our dentists or dental hygienists are able to remove biofilm, stain and young calculus from the enamel, dentin, soft tissues, orthodontic appliances and implants.
What makes Guided Biofilm Therapy a game-changer?
Guided Biofilm Therapy disrupts dental biofilm (sticky and colourless film made up of bacteria on the surface of the teeth) in the most gentle yet effective way.
It involves an initial assessment to determine dental disease risk and therefore treatment protocol. Teeth are then disclosed with a purple dye that makes biofilm visible. The patient is shown any problem areas, which helps them to perfect their oral hygiene regime, while the colour also guides the dentist or hygienist in removing the biofilm.
Depending on the level of treatment need, which is determined in the assessment, a combination of cleaning systems are used to gently remove biofilm, staining and deposits. The technique is so gentle that it can be used on natural teeth, restorations, orthodontic braces and even dental implants.
A final check ensures all biofilm deposits have been removed. The teeth are then protected with a fluoride coating.
