What is GBT?
Guided Biofilm Therapy takes you through their 8 steps of a thorough consultation and examination where a comprehensive assessment is undertaken of your oral health.
Welcome to Guided Biofilm Therapy
Probably the best dental hygiene experience you will ever have. A prevention focused and painless treatment – Guided Biofilm Therapy follows a 8 step protocol taking you on a journey to optimum oral health, improved general health and a lasting beautiful smile.
Step 1 – a full oral health assessment will take place to screen for signs of gum disease and lifestyle factors that may increase your risk of dental disease. Unhealthy gums can compromise the lifespan of the teeth and contribute to more serious general health conditions. Early detection is crucial in eliminating and preventing disease.
Step 2 – An organic dye is applied to the teeth to make the biofilm (commonly known as plaque). Visible and highlight the areas which need the most attention.
Step 3 – Now that we can see the biofilm, you will be shown ways to keep your mouth clean and good daily home care will reduce your risk of developing dental disease.
Step 4 - AIRFLOW® MAX technology combined with Erythritol powder removes biofilm and stain from the teeth, the tongue and all the surrounding soft tissues using a gentle jet of air and warm water.
Step 5: if required the PERIOFLOW® will be used to carefully disrupt any biofilm from the gum pockets.
Step 6: PIEZON® PS is used to remove the remaining hard deposits. Targeted, painless and gentle removal of calculus.
Step 7: A thorough final check is done to ensure all the biofilm and deposits have been removed and that the teeth and soft tissues are healthy and problem free.
Step 8: A recommended recall interval that’s right for your health needs will be discussed at the end of your appointment and scheduled into the diary.
Guided Biofilm Therapy – the modern patient friendly approach to lifelong oral health.
Check out our Wheelchair Dental Suite!
We understand the stress that our wheelchair patients may feel when they need dental care. Moving from wheelchair to dental chair can be difficult. To provide comfort and peace of mind, our Wheelchair Dental Suite has been equipped with the Versatilt.
Helping those who are differently-abled to experience a safer and more comfortable quality of life with Versatilt
As an individual who suffers from mobility issues or as a caregiver of such an individual, you often find that everyday tasks are not designed to accommodate those with physical impairments. Bearing this in mind, the Versatilt by Red Point International strives to add value to the mobility-impaired community.
It offers comfortable and safe mobility for those who are confined to wheelchairs. The Versatilt enables up to 65 degrees of tilt with a maximum of a 750lb weight load.
Here at Red Point International we are committed to improving the quality of life for those facing medical and lifestyle challenges. Headquartered in Vancouver, Washington, we have created several devices that are intuitive and provide answers to the troubling questions that have lingered throughout the medical field for many years.
You are looking our revolutionary Versatilt. The premier wheel chair tilting device now available for those confined to wheel chairs. The Versatilt is an amazing safe patient tilting device and is currently being used in any medical, dental, industrial and adult care environments to eliminate uncomfortable and often dangerous chair transfers. The functionality of this device is amazing. It accommodates almost every style of electric and manual wheelchair. All one has to do is to back the chair into the Versatilt deck where it easily, safely, and quietly tilts up to 65 degrees with the use of a hand-held control stopping at any point. Here you see a wheel chair seated individual in the dentist office, where he would be able to receive optimum care because when using the Versatilt he can be moved to the appropriate and desired position by the professional. Mr. Smith as well as Dr. Pam have found that having the Versatilt provides a measurable ease and comfort to the examining process. He does not have to worry about being lifted out of his chair and the doctor doesn’t face potential injury in helping to move him from his chair. What could possibly be better?
This is a premier safe patient handling device. What this means to almost any care giver is that the 65 degrees of available tilt of the Versatilt provides benefits for all. Additionally, the Versatilt has a Medicare and Medicaid billing number and a 50 percent tax credit to qualifying individuals or businesses. Versatilt owners have shared that they use their device in their marketing campaigns and have successfully received grants by including it in their grant applications. The Versatilt as a safe patient handling device is a remarkable and portable device. It is the premier wheel chair titling device.
The Versatilt improves your dental visits by:
- Maintaining your most comfortable position in your wheelchair.
- Accommodating electric and standard wheelchairs.
- Accommodating up to 750 lbs.
