Dental Hygiene

Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth clean, free of disease and other problems such as bad breath (halitosis), tooth decay (cavities, dental caries), gum diseases – including gingivitis and periodontitis, by regularly brushing and flossing the teeth, to remove harmful plaque (called BioFilm).

Regardless how well we brush and floss our teeth, there are parts of our mouth we cannot reach ourselves. This is where a dental hygienist or dentist plays an important role. They provide proper oral care and professional scaling (teeth cleaning) to keep the mouth and body healthy.

Guided BIOFILM Therapy – GBT

At German Dental & Neuromuscular Clinic, we follow the Guided BioFilm Therapy (GBT) protocol in our dental cleaning and hygiene treatments, and we are one of the GBT certified dental clinics in Dubai.

Using AIRFLOW®, the GBT approach is predictable, painless, and patient-centered. It is based on treatment steps that are individually proven by multiple Randomized Control Trials (RCTs).

What are the differences between the GBT Protocol and traditional teeth cleaning?

  • Disclosure: By revealing biofilms, professional dental cleaning results are significantly better than without disclosure.
  • AIRFLOW: Since biofilm is the main cause of oral disease and calculus build up, Guided Biofilm Treatment (GBT) starts with removing the cause first.
  • PIEZON PS: Targeted Removal of calculus-protecting the teeth. PIEZON PS is faster, less invasive, and more pleasant for patients.
  • No polishing: A polish with polishing paste, rotating brushes, and rubber cups are no longer necessary after the treatment with AIRFLOW PLUS powder (Erythritol).

Why GBT?

Protect your teeth with the following steps:

  • A more predictable method of removing plaque and stains
  • Designed to be gentle on teeth and gums.
  • More efficient, effective and faster than traditional cleaning treatment.
  • Patient’s with sensitive teeth will find this more comfortable.
  • In most cases, no manual scraping is needed.
  • Suitable for all ages.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The hygienist’s main role is to professionally clean the teeth of the patient. This is usually called scaling and polishing. Also, there is an important role for the hygienist which is educating patients on the importance of teeth cleaning and showing them how to clean their teeth, and keep them free of plaque

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.

GBT technology is safe, modern, and painless!

This contemporary approach begins with sub- and supragingival biofilm removal using air-polishing technology with AIRFLOW® PLUS® Powder. This erythritol-based powder guarantees targeted, gentle, risk-orientated removal of the biofilm to support the initial diagnosis.

This is followed by the minimally invasive removal of mineralized build-up with PIEZON® NO PAIN. This approach has many additional benefits, including short treatment times and maximum comfort for both the technician and the patient. GBT is minimally invasive. Polishing paste and rubber cups are no longer necessary.

With GBT, we can finally carry out professional biofilm management effectively, gently, safely, quickly, comfortably, and without pain.

Dentists generally recommend you have your teeth cleaned every six months (twice a year). Research has found, though, that in some cases more frequent cleanings can positively benefit your oral health.
