Why should you choose GBT today?
Is Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) good for my teeth?
Yes, GBT is good for your teeth! It removes the dental biofilm which is the main cause for dental caries (decay), periodontal and peri-implant infections (gum disease).
Regular home oral hygiene combined with professional care keeps the biofilm under control for better oral and systemic health.
Will GBT teeth cleaning damage my teeth?
Guided Biofilm therapy is truly minimally invasive. It is safe, effective, and gentle to the teeth, soft tissues, implants, and restorations.
I have sensitivity during teeth cleaning. Is GBT painful?
It is very comfortable for you and is almost painless. If you have painful sensitive teeth and want painless dentistry, GBT is for you!
Why is the disclosing agent applied to my teeth before GBT?
A disclosing agent is applied to the teeth to expose the biofilm (plaque) on the teeth. The purpose of GBT is to remove 100% of the biofilm.
If biofilm is made visible, it is removed much faster and more effectively. What you see is what is removed.
It also helps the dentist educate you on Oral Hygiene Instructions.
Is it normal for gums to bleed during teeth cleaning?
Yes, in case of gingivitis and periodontitis (gum disease), bleeding will occur during teeth cleaning. The bleeding will stop after the GBT procedure and the gum will heal within a couple of days.
Who will be doing GBT for me?
Our associate dentist, Dr Jaclyn Toh, will be doing Guided Biofilm Therapy for you.
How long is a GBT appointment?
A GBT appointment typically lasts between 30 mins to 1 hour depending on the condition of your oral hygiene.

Can I eat after my GBT appointment?
