Your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body.
We take gum health seriously. So seriously that we use a novel technology called Guided Biofilm Therapy to guide your gums back to health. Think of it as a hygiene which is more comfortable and more effective.
What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?
Guided Biofilm Therapy is a revolutionary, predictable method of managing the oral biofilm. The dental biofilm is the main cause of dental decay, gum disease (periodontitis), peri-implant infections, and contributes to other diseases of the body like heart disease and diabetes.
Thats why we use an advanced technology from Switzerland that allows:
Illumination of the biofilm before it is removed
Removal of the biofilm using an antibacterial spray that selectively removes the bad bacteria
Stain removal without damaging the enamel
Painless removal of hard tartar
What to expect at your hygiene appointment
We know new things can feel a bit strange but we promise once you try GBT, you wont want a normal hygiene again.
1) First we make the biofilm visible by using a plaque disclosing tablet. This will show you where you might be struggling to brush and also helps guide us to where the biofilm is in order to remove it.
2) Then we remove the biofilm, stains and soft calculus using something called an airflow. Airflow is a special mixture of water, air and an antibacterial product called erythritol. Erythritol is the sister of xylitol so it is antibacterial but kind to the body. It also has the added bonus of helping balance the oral microbiome and removing stains.
3) Then we go above and below the gums to make sure there is not any hardened calculus present anywhere.
4) Voila! Hello clean mouth!
Full mouth disinfection
Sometimes a normal clean is not enough. This could be because you have not had a clean in a long time and need a longer appointment to get rid of everything, or it could be that you have gum disease that needs to be treated. If you do have gum disease, you will usually undergo more extensive cleaning with local anaesthetic so we can go a little deeper without hurting you. We also may need to intervene surgically to fully get rid of all the bad bacteria. We got you.
