What Is Guided Biofilm Therapy?
Guided biofilm therapy is an innovative way to remove the bacteria in the mouth that can cause tooth decay and gum disease.
In this post, we’ll find out more about this therapy that has recently been added to Integrity Dental’s services.
Why do I need guided biofilm therapy?
When you visit your dentist, you may have the opportunity to get your teeth cleaned by the hygienist.
This is an efficient way of deep cleaning your teeth and getting results that you just can’t achieve at home.
Think of guided biofilm therapy as the next step in getting your teeth and mouth deep cleaned. It’s a special treatment formulated following years of research by experts in Switzerland and designed to remove the biofilm that covers your teeth.
Over time, this biofilm, made up of bacteria, can build up between the teeth and gums and lead to gum disease.
It can also break down your tooth enamel when it makes contact with sugary food and drinks, resulting in tooth decay
What happens at a guided biofilm therapy appointment?
At your appointment, your dentist or hygienist will use a combination of warm water, air and soft, fine powder to remove the biofilm or bacteria in your mouth.
It’s a minimally invasive process and an effective way to prevent tooth decay and gum disease caused by these bacteria.
It can also remove discolouration on your teeth and a build-up of plaque (tartar), leaving your mouth feeling ultra clean and your smile sparkling!
Who is guided biofilm therapy good for?
The great thing about guided biofilm therapy is that it can prevent gum disease and tooth decay for everyone.
This gentle yet effective treatment works for natural teeth as well as bridges, crowns, veneers and implants, and is suitable for people who wear dental braces or who have gum disease.
It’s also a good option if you are planning on teeth whitening, helping to achieve even better end results.
