GBT Dental Hygiene

What is GBT dental hygiene in Warwickshire?

GBT – Guided Biofilm Therapy is a new technique devised by EMS to give a deep and thorough clean for teeth and gums. GBT looks to eradicate the bacteria called biofilm in your mouth which can’t be seen. Biofilm causes gum decay, tooth decay and tooth loss. It has also been linked to other diseases including heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

GBT uses 8 steps for a deep and thorough clean that will banish bacteria, prevent disease and eliminate bad breath. Your teeth will look and feel amazing.

GBT incorporates Airflow, Perioflow and Piezon technologies that are backed up with scientific evidence.

What is involved in GBT and Airflow dental hygiene?

There are 8 steps within the Guided Biofilm Therapy process which include the dramatically different Airflow clean. Whilst treatment is thorough, it is comfortable and non-invasive.


Examination of teeth

In the first step, your teeth and gums will be given a thorough examination by one of our professional dentists. We will check for any signs of gingivitis and periodontal disease – both forms of gum disease.


Make biofilm visible

Using a special dye, we will make the biofilm in your mouth visible.


Dental hygiene advice

Based on the results of where the biofilm is located, we discuss ways to deal with this and keep teeth clean at home.


Airflow clean

Your mouth, teeth, tongue and gums are given a powerful Airflow clean which removes biofilm, stains and early calculus – hardened plaque.

Airflow uses a combination of compressed air and fine sodium bicarbonate powder in a jet of water so it can easily deal with the hard-to-reach areas in your mouth.

Whilst powerful, Airflow is gentle on your teeth because there is no direct contact or scraping of teeth. This makes it an ideal dental hygiene treatment if you suffer with sensitive teeth.



Using a special fine Perioflow nozzle, the Airflow formula can be used to clean and remove biofilm deep into the pockets of your gums.



Next, the Piezon instrument is used to remove the remaining calculus from your teeth. Calculus is hardened plaque and cannot be removed by brushing. It is easier to remove once the biofilm has been erased. With its fine nozzle, Piezon is also used to clean deep around any restorations such as dental implants or fixed braces.


Final check

Your dentist conducts a final check of your mouth to ensure that all calculus and biofilm are fully removed.


Discuss next steps

Your dentist will advise on when you should next repeat the GBT treatment. You will notice a dramatic improvement to your teeth, mouth and gums. Your teeth will look brighter, and your mouth and breath will feel fresher and cleaner.
