We are excited to announce our newest, innovative technology to the practice: Guided Biofilm Therapy. Just as x-rays have been replaced by digital high-definition x-rays; teeth impressions have been replaced by 3D teeth scanning; now your next hygiene visit to ensure the maximum longevity of your dentition has been superseded by the greatest advance in hygiene therapy. Here are some of the benefits you can expect at your next Hygiene Therapy Visit.


Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) uses advanced powder formulations, delivered using computer-controlled precision instruments, at body temperature. This is to create the most comfortable, thorough and gentle hygiene experience available. GBT has the benefit of minimal tooth sensitivity so you can enjoy those cold drinks in peace!


Dental Biofilm (a sticky film with plaque and tartar) is the primary cause of:

  • Gum Disease
  • Tooth Decay
  • Implant Infections

The biofilm on your teeth is disclosed by using a specialised soluble dye to highlight the “at risk areas”. These areas are then targeted ensuring efficiency, effectiveness and comfort. Alongside your Hygiene Dental Therapist, and your at home routine is developed, we will ensure that you achieve the maximum benefit from your visit.


Guided Biofilm Therapy is user-friendly and comfortable for all age groups. Disclosing the biofilm ensures that the treatment is interactive and educational, especially for our young people. Unlike conventional ultrasonic instruments, this technology is safe for most medical conditions.


Say goodbye to high-pitched whines and vibrations thanks to the precision Swiss componentry. This creates a relaxing experience with a clean and fresh mouth at the end of your treatment.


To maximise the longevity of your dentition and to minimise the need for duplicate dental treatment, it is essential to visit your Dental Hygiene Therapist regularly.                                                   

Did you know Gum Disease may increase the risk of developing Systemic Diseases including:

  • Cardiovascular
  • Respiratory Disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Dementia and Alzheimer’s
  • Diabetes


No more polishing paste! The fine, dissolvable powder, mixed with warm water, helps to gently remove tough staining without touching the teeth. This ensures the teeth, restorations and appliances are not scratched or damaged unlike polishing paste and many toothpastes.



The technology is not just for the teeth. It can used safely and comfortably on varying areas. Guided Biofilm Therapy is gentle on the soft tissues, restorations and your teeth! This treatment preserves the tooth’s natural enamel and leaves your teeth feeling smoother and more hygienic than ever before.


Since the bacterial biofilm can be seen, your Hygiene Therapist can target these areas more efficiently. This makes your experience more comfortable and pleasurable.


The active ingredients in the fine powder alters the DNA of harmful bacteria. This stops fast reproduction. If biofilm is minimised the risk of gum disease, tooth decay and dental infections drops.

We want the best for our clients and are excited to begin the GBT journey with you! We strive to deliver the highest standard of treatments available with the most care and comfort possible. With GBT this can be achieved!
