Guided Biofilm Therapy is the complete 360° approach to dental prophylaxis. Incorporating superior cleaning technology with patient education and home care, this is the modern way to have your teeth professionally cleaned. 



What makes Guided Biofilm Therapy unique?

Your dentist will perform an oral cancer screening and document your mouth with photos and periodic x-rays.

A harmless dye which physically stains plaque (soft bacterial deposits) is painted on to the surfaces of the teeth. Without the dye, early plaque is transparent or tooth-coloured, making it difficult to see.

The dye produces different colours, corresponding to areas of old plaque (high risk for gum disease) and acidic (decay-causing) plaque.

Plaque disclosure allows you to identify areas of the mouth that you find difficult to clean well. Your dentist can provide coaching to ensure you are on top of your brushing and flossing game. The dye helps both you and your dentist ensure that complete plaque removal has occurred after GBT. 

Areas with thick plaque are at increased risk of decay and gum disease. Your dentist will use this for to make anoral health risk assessment.

Photos of your teeth before the cleaning will be taken so that improvements in your oral hygiene can be tracked. (P.S.: Parents love this feature!)

AIRFLOW® simultaneously removes plaque (soft bacterial deposits) and surface stains. 

The AIRFLOW® handpiece uses a stream of pressurized air and water and specially-coated powder to clean the teeth, which means no direct contact with teeth or gums. Your dentist has a choice of 2 different powders depending on the amount of cleaning required.

By using the AIRFLOW®, we no longer need to use ultrasonic or hand instruments to remove plaque(biofilm). There is no need to “abrade” your teeth with rough pumice. 

AIRFLOW®  is the best choice for:

  • Anxious patients, or patients who dislike having their teeth cleaned.
  • Patients with highly sensitive teeth.
  • Patients with dental implants.
  • Patients with orthodontic braces/brackets.
  • Children.
  • Anyone who prefers a gentler, more comfortable and effective cleaning experience.

Specialized tips for subgingival (underneath the gum line) and implant cleaning are available.

EMS Piezon ultrasonic tips have built-in smart vibration to ensure tartar removal without damaging enamel and hurting the gums. Ultra-fine tips clean painlessly inside the gum margin.

A post-treatment photo will be taken. Feel confident that you have experienced the best and most thorough cleaning of your life!

Maintain your perfectly cleaned teeth by scheduling your next maintenance appointment.


In the meantime, work towards better oral hygiene with plaque disclosing tablets at home.
