Dental hygiene is a very important part of keeping a healthy smile. Our highly skilled hygienists are specially trained in the prevention of periodontal (gum) disease and dental cavities.

Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene is a very important part of keeping a healthy smile. Our highly skilled hygienists are specially trained in the prevention of periodontal (gum) disease and dental cavities.
Good oral hygiene habits are the foundation to healthy teeth and gums and need to be established from childhood. Our Hygienists are keen to educate both adults and children about the use of toothbrushes, electronic aids, dental floss and inter-dental brushes.

During your visit to the hygienist your teeth and gums will be throughly examined and any irregularities noted. Plaque and surface stains will be removed by gentle scraping, polishing and using the latest prophyflex power sprays.

Fresh Breath Treatment

Many people are very often conscious and even embarrassed that they have ‘Bad Breath’. The truth is…most people suffer from bad breath at sometime and are in need of a fresh breath treatment. Treatment involves taking an integrated approach to the problem and addressing underlying issues such as tooth decay, oral hygiene and poor diet.


Guided Biofilm Therapy

THE MINIMALLY INVASIVE WAY
NO MORE RUBBER CUPS
NO MORE BRUSHES
NO MORE PASTE
LESS USE OF POWER AND HAND INSTRUMENTATION



What is GBT?

Guided Biofilm Therapy is the systematic, predictable solution for dental biofilm management in professional prophylaxis using state of the art AIRFLOW®, PERIOFLOW® and PIEZON® technologies. It is proven by scientific evidence.

Guided Biofilm Therapy consists of treatment protocols based on individual patient diagnosis and risk assessment in order to achieve optimal results. The treatment is given in the least invasive way, with the highest level of comfort, safety and efficiency.

Guided Biofilm Therapy includes Oral Hygiene Instructions with Philips Sonicare toothbrushes and Airfloss plus patient education and motivation to maintain natural teeth and implants for as long as possible. Join the Swiss Dental Academy and learn more about «GBT».



Why is GBT a ‘Game Changer’?

Dental biofilm is the main etiologic factor for caries, periodontal and peri-implant infections. Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis or diabetes.

Regular oral hygiene, combined with professional measures keeps biofilm under control – for a better oral and systemic health. Axelsson and Lindhe established preventive dentistry in the 1970’s with studies and clinical protocols based on prophylaxis in “recall hours”.

GBT follows the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) recommendations on Professional Mechanical Plaque Removal (PMPR) and Oral Hygiene Instructions (OHI) for Home Care of the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP).

“Periodontal Health — for a better life!”


The 8 Steps Of The GBT Protocol :


1. ASSESS

Probe and screen every clinical case:
– Healthy teeth, caries, gingivitis, periodontitis
– Healthy implants, mucositis, peri-implantitis
– Start by rinsing with BacterX Pro mouthwash



2. DISCLOSE

Make Biofilm visible:
– Highlight to patients the disclosed biofilm and their problematic areas with EMS Biofilm Discloser
– The color will guide biofilm removal
– Once biofilm is removed, calculus is easier to detect



3. MOTIVATE

Raise awareness and teach:
– Emphasize on prevention
– Instruct your patients in oral hygiene
– EMS recommends Sonicare toothbrushes and interdental brushes or Airfloss Ultra



4. AIRFLOW®

Remove biofilm, stains and early calculus:
– Use AIRFLOW® for natural teeth, restorations and implants.
– Remove biofilm supra- and subgingivally up to 4 mm using PLUS 14 μm powder
– Remove remaining stains on enamel using CLASSIC COMFORT Powder.
– Also remove biofilm from gingiva, tongue and palate.



5. PERIOFLOW®

Remove biofilm in >4 to 9 mm pockets:
– Use PLUS Powder on natural teeth in deep pockets and root furcations and on implants
– Use new and slimmer PERIOFLOW® Nozzle



6. PIEZON® PS

Remove remaining calculus:
– Use the minimally invasive EMS PS instrument supra-and sugingivally up to 10 mm
– Clean > 10 mm pockets with mini curette
– Use EMS PI Instrument around implants up to 3 mm subgingivally and on restorations



7. CHECK

Make your patient smile:
– Do a final check for remaining biofilm
– Ensure calculus is fully removed
– Accurately diagnose caries
– Protect with fluoride



8. RECALL

Healthy patient = Happy patient:
– Schedule recall frequency according to risk assessment
– Ask your patient if he or she liked the treatment



GBT is for everyone

PROPHYLAXIS / GENERAL DENTISTRY

– GBT is the new approach in professional prophylaxis for biofilm management.
– GBT is the foundation of a successful prevention of periodontal and peri-implant disease.
– GBT plays an important role in maintaining oral health helping prevent/control oral/systemic diseases such as atherosclerosis, respiratory problems, erectile dysfunction, diabetes, heart problems…
– GBT helps early detection of white spots and caries hence being minimally invasive.

ORTHODONTICS

– GBT is the systematic approach for prevention and maintenance of all orthodontic appliances.
– GBT hinders gingival overgrowth, gingivitis and recession.
– GBT helps early detection and subsequent prevention of white spots and caries.
– GBT maintains integrity of the orthodontic appliances hence minimizing biofilm accumulation.

IMPLANTOLOGY

– GBT is the only predictable solution for implant maintenance.
– Treating mucositis with GBT can help prevent peri-implantitis.
– GBT is indispensable for pre-treatment, post-operative and life long maintenance of implants.


The Aim Of GBT:

PRESERVE HEALTHY TEETH

GBT minimizes the use of power and hand instrumentation. AIRFLOW® is minimally invasive on all types of dental tissues: dentine, cementum, enamel and gums. Minimal abrasion for maximum comfort: GBT enables the patient to enjoy natural teeth and implants for much longer.

MAINTAIN ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCES

Orthodontic appliances increase biofilm growth in areas not accessible by daily brushing and traditional prophylaxis. Biofilm creates wire friction, gingivitis and caries. AIRFLOW® with PLUS Powder removes biofilm with full access to critical areas. Safe and effective on teeth and brackets, it prevents caries and hyperplasia.

PREVENT CARIES

Biofilm is not always visible to the naked eye. Disclosing biofilm helps to remove all biofilm. GBT prevents caries and gum disease in children and adults. No biofilm = No caries.
