Worldwide survey of 76,000 patients shows they favour GBT above other methods of prevention.

A clean mouth is not only crucial for oral health but for overall health in general. That’s why finding ways to remove microbial dental plaque (biofilm) effectively is key to patient wellbeing.

In a global survey of 76,000 patients to determine the preferred method for professional prophylaxis, 92 per cent said they were enthusiastic about EMS’s Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) method and would recommend it to family and friends.

The questionnaires consisted of eight questions, including the overall assessment of GBT, the surface smoothness achieved, the usefulness of disclosure before starting the treatment and a direct comparison with the conventional method.

The anonymised questionnaires were provided to EMS by prevention-oriented practices and clinics.

GBT achieved very good results in all the questions illustrated, scoring 4.6 or 4.7 out of a possible five points in each case.  

In addition, more than 98 per cent of patients reported experiencing no unpleasant pain during treatment or that the pain was less than with conventional treatment.

On September 16, 2022, at The Royal College of Physicians, the GBT Summit in London will bring together leading international experts and clinicians to share information about preventive dentistry and modern therapies to support existing GBT users and support those looking for new ways to elevate their skillset.
