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.

Leah is an amazing Dental Hygienist! Being in the dental industry myself I would highly recommend her and Smile Blanc. My cleaning was thorough and she reviewed all the areas I need to focus on and gave me suggestions. She used the GBT ( Guided Biofilm Therapy) It was amazing the before and after. My teeth not only felt and looked clean they actually looked whiter. Leah and Nada were absolutely wonderful and the atmosphere was relaxing and chill. Highly recommend Smile Blanc!!!

Amazing experience! Leah is so knowledgeable and nerdy about what she is passionate about (alot like me). She was super thorough, but gentle and my mouth has never felt so clean! She checked in to make sure I wasn't experiencing any sensitivity. I was so curious about the newer technology for dental cleaning and it did not disappoint. Highly recommend.

The biofilm cleaning was incredible. I noticed a big difference from the usual dental cleaning. My mouth felt super clean for days after. This was my first in house whitening experience and I was so happy with my result! The space is immaculately clean and inviting. Loved the personal tv while processing. Highly recommend for someone wanting new technology for the cleanest of teeth!

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.

Guided Bio film Tool

What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?

This service will redefine your dental hygiene experience with its minimally invasive delivery to completely get rid of current biofilm bacteria in your mouth.

Registered Dental Hygienists on a Mission…

… To Disrupt How Teeth Cleaning is Done!

What to expect during my appointment?

Once our registered dental hygienists locate all foreign microbes in our patients’ mouth, our registered dental hygienists apply our touchless AIRFLOW devices which uses a combination of warm water, air and an antibacterial agent to remove 99.9% of all bacteria in the mouth it. This technology provides many benefits like:

  • Teeth are one shade lighter after visit.
  • Delivery of an antibacterial agent up to 4mm under gum that continues to work for up to a week after your visit.
  • For those with Periodontal disease there is a separate attachment to reach 8mm under gums.
  • A different approach to your dental cleaning.
Our team of registered dental hygienists can check your insurance coverage to see if you are eligible for this treatment.

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.
