Guided Biofilm Therapy with Dentistry at LaSalle

At Dentistry at LaSalle in Burlington, Ontario, our providers are here to help you achieve oral health and wellness. To do so, we also incorporate several specialized techniques. This includes special guided biofilm therapy, or "GBT," which targets bacteria biofilm on the teeth and gums.

Understanding Biofilm

Bacteria biofilm is sometimes referred to as plaque. It develops on moist surfaces such as the mouth and can affect all oral tissues. While brushing and flossing can keep biofilm under control, it will continue to come back. Patients are strongly urged to visit their dentist regularly for cleanings and evaluations to monitor oral health and wellness with time. Without professional services, biofilm can continue to build and cause infection, inflammation, and tooth loss.

Removing biofilm

Check out how we take biofilm removal to incredible levels with versatile, cutting-edge AIR-FLOW® therapy to give you the brightest smile!
So, this is where we start the cleaning process, and it is completely different to the old-fashioned methods of curettage and hand scaling. So, here I’m using a tool called AIR-FLOW® MAX which acts like a warm jack wash for inside the mouth, and it uses a combination of warm water and tiny soluble and antimicrobial powder. AIR-FLOW® MAX will remove one hundred percent of the biofilm from the teeth, and all of the surrounding tissues, including underneath the gums, where it’s dark, warm, and the biofilm really likes to hide. Also, using the AIR-FLOW® MAX not just to take the biofilm away but it takes the stains away as well. So, the mouth looks and feels super clean afterwards. It’s very comfortable for the patient. It’s gentle, it’s efficient, it’s very safe with no abrasion or damage to the tooth surface at all.

To address this issue, our team will integrate several techniques for removal, including GBT. This may include:

Guided Biofilm Therapy at LaSalle
  • A thorough oral health assessment with our team
  • A special organic dye applied to the teeth to highlight areas of concern.
  • Education on how to care for the smile at home
  • Airflow dental cleaning to remove areas of biofilm buildup
  • Perioflow to address biofilm in the gum pockets
  • Piezon to remove hard deposits of calculus
  • Final check to ensure all the biofilm and deposits have been removed and the teeth and soft tissues are healthy and problem free.
  • A professional hygiene care interval appropriate for oral health will be established.

At our dental spa, you can relax while we provide GBT treatment using our warm water dental cleaning, which not only addresses biofilm on the teeth and gums but can also be used for those with sensitive teeth. With our experienced team, you can enjoy pain-free dental cleanings while ensuring that the results are highly effective. Plaque removal procedures have been critical to maintaining oral health and wellness over the years. These routine visits are essential for monitoring the early signs of problems, including infection and inflammation that may put the smile at risk.

GBT, the game changer in professional prophylaxis

EMS - GBT Patient Video Dentistry at LaSalle
Speaker 1: GBT (Guided Biofilm Therapy) is a systematic, predictable, and scientifically-proven protocol in professional prophylaxis. Being minimally invasive and pain-free, GBT is a game changer.
Step one: Assess every clinical case to individualise the treatment plan. Start by rinsing with BacterX PRO mouthwash to minimise the bacterial and viral charge in the aerosol.
Step two: Disclose biofilm with EMS Biofilm Discloser. The colour guides you to remove biofilm faster and more accurately.
Step three: Motivate and educate your patients in oral hygiene. Evidences suggest that professional biofilm control shows similar bacterial growth to non-treated patients without adequate daily care.
Step four: Airflow Max removes biofilm-supra and subgingivally up to four millimetres for natural teeth, restorations, implants, orthodontic appliances, and soft tissue. With Airflow Plus Powder, only 14 micrometres, gentle, efficient, and comfortable.
Step five: The new and slimmer Perioflow nozzle reaches up to nine millimetres of pocket around natural teeth and root furcations and around implants, whilst preserving the hard and soft tissue.
Step six: Piezon PS is only a final touch in GBT. You can use instrument Piezon PS for 95% of all cases with no pain to remove calculus-supra and subgingivally up to 10 millimetres. Step seven: Check for remaining biofilm and calculus. You can now diagnose caries more accurately on clean teeth surfaces.
Step eight: Schedule recall according to risk assessment. Regular recall is the key to successful oral health.

Following the eight steps of GBT, you can maintain and prevent periodontitis, peri-implantitis, and caries in an efficient and predictable manner. No polishing anymore! GBT is good, beautiful, and true. Be a game changer with GBT.
