Modernize Your Hygiene Appointments with Guided Biofilm Therapy

October 27, 2021

Dental hygienists have treated patients with traditional scaling and polishing for decades and while this approach is sufficient to remove local deposits on teeth, it does not address biofilm. Oral biofilm has been implicated in numerous systemic conditions and dental professionals have a unique opportunity to interrupt the oral-systemic inflammatory process. This promotes a positive impact on oral health while mitigating the contribution of oral biofilm on the exacerbation of systemic disease. GBT (Guided Biofilm Therapy) has revolutionized preventive care and the dental hygiene appointment. This webinar will describe GBT, implementation and the clinical and practice management outcomes of integrating this into clinical practice.

If xerostomia is not effectively managed, it can significantly damage a client’s oral health and also have a major impact on general health. Learn how to identify and evaluate salivary hypofunction, recommend effective self-care measures and discover new, innovative solutions that work!

  • Describe the concept of GBT.
  • Appreciate the benefits of implementing GBT into clinical practice.
