Emily is a routine but average brusher. She has gingivitis but thinks it's OK because it is not painful. Repeatedly telling her what to do is not working. Bob just had his implants placed. He knows regular oral hygiene care is essential to natural teeth, but he is unaware that the at-home gum care is extra important and critical to his implant success. Failure to keep his oral health in optimal condition could lead to periodontal disease or peri-implant disease.
Crest® + Oral-B® patient research helped us understand what was required to better engage the patient. Knowing that preventing
gingivitis and periodontal disease is an attainable goal, Crest & Oral-B developed Oral Health Essentials System to help you
elevate the standard of home care for your gingivitis and dental implant patients. By giving them the support they need and
working in unison, together you can achieve the hygiene goals you set in the chair! Using a proven communication formula, Oral
Health Essentials equips your dental hygiene team with engaging communication tools.These, along with a home care regimen that is clinically proven to reduce inflammation and bleeding, provide an effective solution to treat gingivitis. When left untreated, gingivitis can lead to periodontitis.
Communication Tools to Educate Patients
Emily and Bob are engaged in less than 30 seconds with personalized communication tools. The customized tools give them an immediate visual understanding of their oral health issue. This helps make the condition real to them. Oral Health Essentials provides two patient chairside laminates to educate your patients on their level of gum health:
Test Drive In-Office Patient Trial Program
Involving Emily and Bob by showing them how to care for their gums and teeth when they’re in your chair can help improve compliance and encourage them to take ownership of their oral health problem.
The Oral-B Test Drive Patient Trial Program allows patients to experience the benefit of brushing with a GENIUS X powerbrush while you coach them on their brushing technique. Together you can download the Oral-B app and customize their personal dental journey for best oral care results.
