Preventative care for the orthodontic patient can be a stressful experience for a dental clinician and patient. With a much larger surface area for biofilm to adhere to and with orthodontic appliances making it harder for the clinician to perform their care, it can often lead to an appointment where not all the biofilm is removed and the clinician is feeling stressed. Treatment doesn’t have to be this way, using the GBT protocol for orthodontic treatment can change the experience to a positive one for both the clinician and the patient.
