Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

Claregate Dental Practice is proud to announce the launch of Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) at our dental practice – the first and only practice in Wolverhampton!

GBT is the latest revolution in dental hygiene treatment.

What makes GBT so special?

  • Many of you will have experienced traditional dental hygiene treatments which can be uncomfortable. GBT is an extremely comfortable form of treatment for the patient, using air polishing technology.
  • It’s proven to be the most effective way of removing biofilm (plaque) around teeth and gums. Biofilm is known to cause gum disease, tooth decay, bad breath etc. Biofilm is also linked to many health diseases e.g. Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes etc.
  • GBT is safe, effective and gentle to teeth, soft tissues and dental implants. It can even be used for the dental hygiene of children.

    Frequently asked questions…

    Find the answers you’ve been searching for regarding gum disease treatments at our dental practice in Wolverhampton! We believe an informed patient is a happy patient, so do get in touch if you would like to find out more about our treatments.

    1. What are the symptoms of gum disease?

      The most notable signs of gum disease are red, swollen, or puffy gums that are sensitive to touch or when chewing. They might bleed when you brush your teeth and you might also notice them receding from the base of your teeth. Gum disease is easily preventable with the correct care and treatment, so it’s best to seek professional help from one of our Wolverhampton dentists if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.

    2. What is plaque and tartar?

      Plaque is created by improper cleaning, which lets germs and bacteria build up and cause cavities and gum disease. Tartar occurs when this plaque hardens, and attaches to your enamel, threatening your dental health.

    3. How regularly should I see a dental hygienist?

      At our Wolverhampton dental practice, we recommend booking an appointment with a dental hygienist between 2 – 4 times a year. This ensures we can monitor any changes and symptoms together and work towards achieving and maintaining healthier gums.

    4. How can I prevent gum disease?

      Gum disease is very easily prevented with the correct dental care. Ensuring that you brush and floss your teeth twice a day is essential to keeping gum disease at bay. Some antiseptic mouthwashes may also help with preventing gum disease whilst targeting the unwanted bacteria in your mouth. In addition to routine at-home care, you should visit one of our Wolverhampton dentists or hygienists twice a year for professional cleanings and recommendations.

    5. What lifestyle factors contribute to gum disease?

      There are certain lifestyle factors and individual considerations that contribute to the development of gum disease. These include smoking, diabetes, a family history of the disease, high stress levels, and even some medication.
