Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT), is the new and better way to clean your teeth and remove biofilm. This treatment is evidenced based, proven to be less invasive, and more comfortable than the traditional way of cleaning teeth.

Dental biofilm is the main etiologic factor for caries, periodontal and peri-implant infections because the harmful bacteria in this biofilm are the cause of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.

Pathogenic bacteria originating in the oral cavity can also enter the systemic circulation and have been associated with multiple systemic diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and many more. It is critical that these bacteria be completely removed to ensure a healthy mouth and body.

Guided Biofilm Therapy is a scientifically proven systematic, predictable solution for dental biofilm management using state-of-the-art technologies. GBT uses new technology to remove your biofilm by using a combination of warm water, air, and soft cleaning powder and reduces the need for traditional hand tools and polishers.

GBT is less invasive and provides a more comfortable way of cleaning and keeping biofilm under control – for better oral and systemic health!

We dedicate ourselves to seeking continuous training and professional development that allows us to offer you all of the possible choices and alternatives to keep your oral health.

Meraki Dental is pleased to offer complete dental services including preventive and restorative dentistry, such as dental exams, cleanings, fillings, porcelain crowns, bridges and veneers, dental implants, Invisalign, whitening, night guards, and much more.

We understand that dental emergencies happen, and we will make sure to provide our patients with same-day emergency dental care appointments to discuss the best treatment options.

We are happy to provide more information about our services.

Our Children

Airway Dysfunction (AD) and Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB)

In children, this condition occurs when there is inadequate or improper breathing in a growing child. It occurs both day and night but is usually more severe during sleep. If undiagnosed and untreated, it can lead to disturbances in physical and cognitive development.

What are some of the signs and symptoms ?

Sleep Issues:

  • Daytime sleepiness or hyperactivity
  • Snoring or heavy breathing during sleep
  • Difficulty in falling asleep or restless sleep

  • Bedwetting
  • Grinding the teeth during sleep

Signs and symptoms:

  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Chapped lips
  • An open mouth posture of the lower jaw
  • Frequent ear infections.
  • Improper growth and development of the jaws or a lack of space between the baby teeth or crowding of the baby or adult teeth
What are the possible causes of AD and SDB in children?


  • Mouth breathing
  • Tongue or lip ties
  • Enlarged tonsils and adenoids
  • Nasal obstruction
  • Habits such as thumb sucking or prolonged pacifier use
  • Poor general or oral muscle tone


  • Poor nutrition

What effects can AD and SDB have on children if left untreated?


  • Depression, anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), behavioral issues
  • Delayed cognitive development, underperformance in school

Various screening tools are involved and combined to evaluate your child:

  • A sleep questionnaire, sleep study, or home sleep study
  • Airway assessment
  • High-resolution pulse-oximetry (HRPO)
How are AD and SDB managed?


  • Proper sleep hygiene

  • Nasal breathing therapy
  • Myofunctional therapy
  • Guided growth and development appliance therapy
  • Orthodontic treatment


  • Correction of a tongue or lip tie
  • Removal of the tonsils and adenoids

Snoring in Children

Occasional snoring in children is normal. If snoring is persistent or signs of sleep apnea exist, your child may be at higher risk for growth and development problems. Snoring may result from temporary airway obstruction experienced with a common cold, sinus infections, allergies, or enlarged tonsils. Sleep apnea risk factors are overgrown/enlarged tonsils and adenoids, obesity, abnormal facial development, and neuromuscular disorder.

Occasional snoring is common when associated with illness or allergies, however frequent snoring is NOT normal in a child’s development. Untreated sleep apnea is dangerous. It can lead to learning difficulties, behavioral issues and affect growth and development. If you are concerned that your child may have abnormal snoring or sleep apnea, your child’s physician should determine if further evaluation or treatment is necessary.
