WHAT IS GBT?

Guided Biofilm Therapy is the systematic, predictable solution for dental biofilm
management in professional prophylaxis using state of the art AIRFLOW®

PERIOFLOW® and PIEZON®

technologies. It is proven by scientific evidence.
Guided Biofilm Therapy consists of treatment protocols based on individual patient
diagnosis and risk assessment in order to achieve optimal results. The treatment is
given in the least invasive way, with the highest level of comfort, safety and
efficiency.
Guided Biofilm Therapy includes Oral Hygiene Instructions with Philips Sonicare
toothbrushes and Airfloss plus patient education and motivation to maintain natural
teeth and implants for as long as possible. Join the Swiss Dental Academy and learn

WHY IS GBT A “GAME CHANGER”?

Dental biofilm is the main etiologic factor for caries, periodontal and peri-implant
infections. Periodontitis 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. Axelsson and Lindhe established
preventive dentistry in the 1970’s with studies and clinical protocols based on
prophylaxis in “recall hours”.
GBT follows the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) recommendations on
Professional Mechanical Plaque Removal (PMPR) and Oral Hygiene Instructions
(OHI) for Home Care of the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP).
“Periodontal Health — for a better life!”

THE 8 STEPS OF THE GBT PROTOCOL:

01 ASSESS

  • Probe and screen every clinical case:
  • Healthy teeth, caries, gingivitis, periodontitis
  • Healthy implants, mucositis, peri-implantitis

Start by rinsing with BacterX Pro mouthwash

02 DISCLOSE

Make Biofilm visible:

  • Highlight to patients the disclosed biofilm and their problematic areas with EMS
  • Biofilm Discloser
  • The color will guide biofilm removal
  • Once biofilm is removed, calculus is easier to detect

03 MOTIVATE

Raise awareness and teach:

  • Emphasize on prevention
  • Instruct your patients in oral hygiene
  • EMS recommends Sonicare toothbrushes and interdental brushes or Airfloss Ultra

04 AIRFLOW®
Remove biofilm, stains and early calculus:

  • Use AIRFLOW® for natural teeth, restorations and implants.
  • Remove biofilm supra- and subgingivally up to 4 mm using PLUS 14 μm powder
    Remove remaining stains on enamel using CLASSIC COMFORT Powder.
  • Also remove biofilm from gingiva, tongue and palate.

Discover AIRFLOW®

05 PERIOFLOW®
Remove biofilm in >4 to 9 mm pockets:

  • Use PLUS Powder on natural teeth in deep pockets and root furcations and on
    implants
  • Use new and slimmer PERIOFLOW® Nozzle

Discover PERIOFLOW®

06 PIEZON® PS
Remove remaining calculus:

  • Use the minimally invasive EMS PS instrument supra-and sugingivally up to 10 mm
  • Clean > 10 mm pockets with mini curette
  • Use EMS PI Instrument around implants up to 3 mm subgingivally and on restorations

Discover PIEZON®

07 CHECK
Make your patient smile:

  • Do a final check for remaining biofilm
  • Ensure calculus is fully removed
  • Accurately diagnose caries
  • Protect with fluorides

08 RECALL
Healthy patient = Happy patient:

  • Schedule recall frequency according to risk assessment
  • Ask your patient if he or she liked the treatment

GBT IS FOR EVERYONE:

PROPHYLAXIS / GENERAL DENTISTRY

  • GBT is the new approach in professional prophylaxis for biofilm management.
  • GBT is the foundation of a successful prevention of periodontal and peri-implant
    disease.
  • GBT plays an important role in maintaining oral health helping
    prevent/control oral/systemic diseases such as atherosclerosis, respiratory problems,
    erectile dysfunction, diabetes, heart problems…
  • GBT helps early detection of white spots and caries hence being minimally invasive.

ORTHODONTICS

  • GBT is the systematic approach for prevention and maintenance of all orthodontic
    appliances.
  • GBT hinders gingival overgrowth, gingivitis and recession.
  • GBT helps early detection and subsequent prevention of white spots and caries.
  • GBT maintains integrity of the orthodontic appliances hence minimizing biofilm
    accumulation.

IMPLANTOLOGY

  • GBT is the only predictable solution for implant maintenance.
  • Treating mucositis with GBT can help prevent peri-implantitis.
  • GBT is indispensable for pre-treatment, post-operative and life long maintenance of implants.

THE AIM OF GBT:

PRESERVE HEALTHY TEETH
GBT minimizes the use of power and hand instrumentation. AIRFLOW® is minimally
invasive on all types of dental tissues: dentine, cementum, enamel and gums.
Minimal abrasion for maximum comfort: GBT enables the patient to enjoy natural
teeth and implants for much longer.

MAINTAIN ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCES
Orthodontic appliances increase biofilm growth in areas not accessible by daily
brushing and traditional prophylaxis. Biofilm creates wire friction, gingivitis and caries.
AIRFLOW® with PLUS Powder removes biofilm with full access to critical areas. Safe
and effective on teeth and brackets, it prevents caries and hyperplasia.

PREVENT CARIES
Biofilm is not always visible to the naked eye. Disclosing biofilm helps to remove all
biofilm. GBT prevents caries and gum disease in children and adults. No biofilm = No
caries.
