Dental Hygiene In Hamilton - Get A Clean And Healthy Mouth With Guided Biofilm Therapy
Dental hygiene is evolving to become more effective and comfortable than ever before. Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is an approach to oral care that has transformed the patient experience at Queen King Dental in Hamilton, ON.
What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?
GBT is a systematic, predictable solution for dental hygiene that targets biofilm, a complex structure of microorganisms that adheres to surfaces within the mouth. If not adequately managed, it can lead to common problems like dental caries and gum disease.
GBT is an evidence-based, eight-step protocol incorporating technologies and devices to detect, remove, and prevent biofilm. The process is minimally invasive, focusing on preserving teeth and soft tissues, making it a patient-friendly alternative to traditional scaling and root planing.
How Does GBT Work?
The process starts with an evaluation of your oral health. To guide the dentist in pinpointing areas that need attention, the biofilm is revealed. The dentist uses Airflow technology, which is a combination of warm water, fine powder, and a powerful stream of air. This removes the biofilm, stains, and early calculus without directly touching the tooth surface. This step is less abrasive and more comfortable than traditional cleaning methods. After removing the biofilm, the dentist can remove any stubborn calculus using ultrasonic devices or manual instruments. The final steps involve polishing the teeth, applying preventive measures like fluoride, and designing a customized maintenance plan.
What are the benefits?
Since GBT is less invasive and abrasive than traditional methods, patients experience less discomfort during and after the procedure. The treatment is faster compared to conventional methods. GBT’s precision in removing biofilm and early calculus helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease more effectively. It is minimally invasive, so there is less damage to the teeth and surrounding tissue. GBT is adaptable to each patient’s specific needs, allowing for better oral health outcomes. The visible disclosure of biofilm empowers you to understand your oral hygiene status, fostering better oral care practices at home.
