Guided Biofilm Therapy – GBT means that the clinician is guided by the disclosed biofilm during professional tooth cleaning procedures. Dental biofilm is one of the main factors for caries, periodontal and peri-implant infections. Periodontitis can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis or diabetes. Before removal the biofilm is always disclosed with a dye solution.

Here at Dental Health Spa, we are advocates for preventative dental care. We ensure that our patients including children receive professional oral hygiene appointments, at least twice a year as part of their regular dental routine. This allows us to review our patients’ brushing techniques, protect our patient’s teeth and further motivate our patients to maintain better oral and systemic health. Safe and pain free cleaning for children’s teeth and great for around fixed braces too. Teaching the best way to obtain and keep a healthy mouth starts when children are very young.
We can offer stand-alone Hygiene treatments even if you have your own Dentist. The best way to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy is to brush and floss your teeth twice daily. However, regular dental check-ups and professional hygiene treatments are also part of an effective dental hygiene regime.
