It's All About the Biofilm

Getting your teeth cleaned professionally on a regular basis is one of the most important things you can do to keep your mouth healthy. During this process, your dental hygienist will focus on removing biofilm, also called plaque, and the hard deposits it leaves behind.

What is Biofilm?

Biofilm is a colony of bacteria and other organisms that live together in a slimy substance that helps them stick to surfaces like your teeth. There are hundreds of species of bacteria in your mouth at any given time and they can cause cavities, gingivitis and gum disease.

These organisms can also be dangerous for your overall health. Oral biofilm has been linked to many health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and more. It is a common source of chronic inflammation in our bodies which is at the heart of many medical conditions.

New Advanced Technology for Removing Biofilm

We love when new technologies allow us to do a better job for our patients and are excited to announce that we are now offering Guided Biofilm Therapy. This science-based protocol up levels professional teeth cleaning, giving us more power to remove dangerous biofilm, prevent dental disease and protect your body’s health.

GBT is painless and it uses warm water which is much more comfortable for people with sensitive teeth. Our patients love how easy it is and how wonderful their teeth feel after their appointment. They can also be confident that they are taking the best steps possible toward better health.

There are 8 Steps to the Guided Biofilm Therapy Protocol

Diagnose: We start by evaluating your teeth and gums and deciding what treatment would be best for you.

Disclose: This makes the biofilm visible to the hygienist, making it easier for her to remove.

Motivate: Based on our findings we will make recommendations for how you care for your teeth at home.

Airflow: The first level of biofilm removal using airflow, warm water and a special paste.

Perioflow: This second level removes biofilm from pockets below the gums gently and thoroughly.

Piezon PS: The third level is targeted, painless removal of remaining calculus.

Control: Re-examining the teeth to verify all calculus has been removed.

Recall: Scheduling your next GBT appointment

No fear. No pain. Just cleaner, whiter and healthier teeth.

We feel sure you are going to love Guided Biofilm Therapy as much as we do!
