Registered Dental Hygienists on a BIOFILM Mission
What is a Biofilm?
Biofilms are the smallest form of bacteria found in the mouth, naked to the eye, responsible for plaque and tarter, bad breath, gum disease, and can increase your risk to systemic diseases such as Cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s.
What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?
Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is a Swiss Technology that is known for its primary focus to remove bacteria from the mouth starting at its smallest form; Biofilm. Traditional dental hygiene appointments focus on “teeth cleaning”, where GBT actually locates all types of bacteria in all areas of the mouth and successfully removes it.
For the first time ever, our registered dental hygienists can clean our patients’ entire mouths including teeth, roots of teeth, all surrounding gum tissues, cheeks and tongue thus giving your mouth a fresh start in achieving your optimal oral health.

Getting to the Root of Dental Hygiene Dilemmas
Did you know that you need to be concerned about something more than just the deep cleaning of your teeth, tartar removal, or plaque removal? We need to know that all these problems are rooted in the presence of dental biofilm within your mouth.
What is Dental Biofilm?
Biofilms are highly organized microscopic communities of bacteria that live in your mouth responsible for bad breath and gum disease and can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies show that up to 50% of biofilm is left behind in your mouth after traditional hygiene appointments, making your ordinary teeth cleaning process inadequate.
What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?
Guided Biofilm Therapy aka GBT is a Swiss dental technology that allows our hygienists to remove not only the biofilm bacteria on your teeth and root surfaces but all surrounding gum tissues, including your cheeks, tongue, and the roof of your mouth.
This service will redefine your dental hygiene experience with its minimally invasive delivery to completely get rid of current biofilm bacteria in your mouth.

How to get started with Guided biofilm therapy hygiene appointment and professional blue light teeth whitening appointment.
Patients must start with a hygiene appointment even if they are only seeking professional teeth whitening appointment. Smile Blanc’s registered dental hygienists need to ensure a clean and healthy mouth prior to any teeth whitening. If teeth are not cleaned first, you are simply just whitening the bacteria on the teeth. If the gums are bleeding and infected teeth whitening can make the gum disease worse.
Smile Blanc requires in house GBT teeth cleaning prior to whitening as Smile Blanc provides a different type of cleaning we can not ensure results if we are not starting with the same base prior to hygiene.

Gingivitis or more severe gum disease such as periodontitis where 3month hygiene appointments are recommended. Smile Blanc provides individualized care informing patients on how frequently they should return for hygiene appointments; however, patients have the choice of how often they seek dental hygiene appointments.
What About my dentist?
After a new patient hygiene appointment, patients will have a clear understanding if they need to see a dentist or any type of specialist. If there are cavities found or… our patients have the choice to see their regular dentist.
If they are looking to make a change, Smile Blanc can refer patients to a dentist in their area. If there are no concerns, patients can visit and schedule regular hygiene appointments with Smile Blanc to maintain a healthy smile.
What If I have a cavity forming?
Cavity reversal- if a cavity is starting to form, our hygienists can clean out the area without freezing and apply a strong fluoride solution that will stop and reverse the cavity before a filling is required.
This is known as Silver Diamine fluoride Treatment. This approach preserves our patients’ teeth in their natural state for as long as possible.
