What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?
Guided Biofilm Therapy is a new, advanced way of delivering dental hygiene, with no pain reported in 95% of treatments. This soft and gentle therapy includes warm Airflow and anti-microbial treatments giving a thorough dental clean which is safe for the most sensitive teeth, and also for dental implants, crowns and veneers.
Why Is Guided Biofilm Therapy a Game Changer?
Dental biofilm is the main cause of dental decay, gum and implant infections. Gum disease can increase the risk of systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular and respiratory disease, arthritis or diabetes.
Regular oral hygiene, combined with professional measures keeps biofilm under control – for a better oral and systemic health.
