Following the update, patients can benefit from a specialized treatment targeted at biofilm removal to prevent or reverse issues such as gum diseases and tooth damage.

Dental biofilm is a collection of microorganisms that accumulate on the surface of the teeth and areas between the teeth and gum. If not removed, the sticky white film will result in oral diseases like gingivitis, dental caries and periodontitis. GBT, a new Swiss innovation, uses AirFlow technology – a combination of air, soft powder and warm water projected in a steady stream to remove the biofilm gently.

GBT involves an eight-step procedure that combines guided dental cleaning with patient education. First, the team at Dr Dave Richards starts with a screening and risk assessment to gauge the patient’s oral health. Then, they use a special dye to highlight problematic areas and guide the cleaning process. After that, depending on the state of the patient’s mouth, they will recommend the best oral hygiene routine for home care.

The next three steps entail systematically removing tartar using different minimally invasive and gentle technology methods, including AirFlow. Finally, a reassessment is done to ensure the biofilm and tartar are entirely removed, and then a treatment schedule is created based on risk assessment.

The clinic uses advanced diagnostics for exams, regular and deep cleaning treatments, and other preventative dentistry services. For their range of dental restorative procedures, they use the latest CEREC technology, allowing for less invasive and more accurate restorations like bridges and crowns.

Dr Dave Richards has spent over four decades serving patients in the Auckland areas of St Heliers, Glendowie, Kohimarama, Mission Bay, Orakei, Meadowbank, St Johns, and other communities. This announcement aligns with the clinic’s continued commitment to providing top-quality restorative and cosmetic dental solutions while working closely with each patient to help them achieve optimal oral health.

A satisfied patient said: “Dave is a great dentist who is thorough, gentle and reassuring. Needed extensive work after a long time of avoiding dentists due to anxiety, and every visit was stress- and pain-free. The whole team is warm and welcoming. Highly recommend.”
