Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

There is a revolutionary new technology called AIRFLOW® providing an improved way of cleaning teeth and gums called Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT). It’s a Swiss development which is really rather good, so this option is being added to Hygiene visits at Tangmere.

Guided Biofilm Therapy is a really different way to clean teeth, both above and below gum level so treating gum disease as well as polishing teeth silky smooth in a safer, less traumatic way than a traditional Scale & Polish.

AIRFLOW® projects a controlled stream of air, water and fine powder onto the tooth and in hard-to-reach areas removing Biofilm that causes disease, without the scratchy scraping of metal scalers on your teeth. It also smooths away staining leaving the teeth brilliantly white and fresh. A clean like you have never had before. 

Biofilm is a thin invisible film of micro-organisms and bacteria that stick to the teeth and gums, which is known to be the main cause of Gum disease. This in turn has been attributed as a cause of many other serious general disease processes that affect the body, including Heart disease, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and more.

It is now the case that looking after your teeth not only looks and feels good but it could help you live a longer and happier life as well.

Book in to have a Hygiene visit with one of our Therapists at Tangmere and experience GBT. You can ask to see them independently without changing to, or seeing our dentists if you wish.
