And now they have intensified their battle against the bacteria responsible for gum disease that can lead to the loss of your teeth and implants with the new Biofilm Guided Therapy® (GBT).

What is GBT?
Guided Biofilm Therapy is a systematic and predictable solution to eliminate the biofilm around your teeth during your oral hygiene consultation, using Swiss technology proven through scientific evidence.
Treatment protocols are based on the patient’s individual diagnosis and risk assessment to achieve the best results. The treatment is done in the least invasive way, with the highest level of comfort, safety and efficiency.

How do we make GBT?
The Albufeira Health Institute has acquired the latest technology: the EMS Airflow Master, to make GBT.
This machine has been developed in Switzerland allows for painless and minimally invasive treatments for teeth, and patients report the entire experience as being similar to a visit to the spa.
The new technology also allows the highly experienced team to control the aerosols emitted, making the entire experience safer.

What are the benefits of GBT?
GBT is the only therapy that guarantees the removal of pathogenic bacteria adhered to the teeth, the biofilm, without harming the dental structure and without pain.
Biofilm is the main factor that leads to periodontal diseases, which in turn lead to the loss of teeth and implants, cavities and bad breath.
Biofilm also has other detrimental effects to health, including increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease and diabetes.

How should I keep my gums and teeth healthy?
It is not enough to simply have the best treatments, it is also necessary to have excellent maintenance of your teeth and dental health.
The Oral Hygiene consultation from the Albufeira Health Institute was created and designed to help keep teeth and your treatments as smooth as possible.
The team recommends a consultation twice a year to ensure healthy gums and teeth for the rest of your life.
