Oral Hygiene GBT

The importance of Oral Hygiene

Bacterial plaque results from accumulated food remains, bacteria, and saliva in the oral cavity. If it is not removed effectively through brushing and flossing, it leads to gum inflammation and potentiates the appearance of dental decay.

But, despite the importance of daily oral hygiene care, it is fundamental that, periodically, professional cleaning is conducted by the Oral Hygienist. This professional can eliminate bacterial plaque and tartar more effectively than at home.

Thus, oral hygiene results from teamwork between the Oral Hygienist and the patient, successfully eliminating the leading cause of oral diseases: bacterial plaque.

How does it work?

Generally, at the Hugo Madeira Clinic, oral hygiene appointments are divided into 6 stages:

  1. Diagnosis;
  2. Bacterial plaque revealing;
  3. Motivational and Instructive oral hygiene habits;
  4. Scaling and removal of pigment;
  5. Re-evaluation;
  6. Dental remineralisation.

The removal of bacterial plaque and tartar – through scaling and root planing, which consists of scraping the tooth surfaces – allows:

  • Treat gingivitis and periodontitis, achieving a healthier gum;
  • Control the appearance of caries lesions;
  • Remove extrinsic pigments caused by food or tobacco.

Safe and minimally invasive

At the Hugo Madeira Clinic, we follow the GBT – Guided Biofilm Therapy protocol, which consists of minimally invasive and totally safe treatment.

This method, which is more comfortable for the patient, uses a dye that reveals the existence of biofilm (bacterial plaque). Therefore, it is easier to identify the areas of a greater incidence of biofilm, and hygiene becomes more effective.
