TIPS FOR SUCCESS
HOMECARE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL OUTCOMES IN GUM HEALTH
"Regardless of the procedure, the most important thing is to improve gum health and patients oral homecare."
With any procedure we do, the outcome is always decreased if there's poor homecare. In my experience there's a significant improvement in homecare if you can move the patient from a manual to a powerbrush. Recommending a powerbrush takes the brushing out of the patient's hands and improves outcomes.
EVIDENCE SHOWS THE SMALL ROUND PROPHY-INSPIRED BRUSH HEAD IS BETTER1
The Oral-B oscillating-rotating brush not only takes the technique out of patient’s hands, it tells them how long to brush each quadrant and coaches them during each brushing session. The pressure sensor also sends a protective signal to alert patients when they’re brushing too aggressively. The small round prophy-inspired brush head is able to hug each tooth 360° while the oscillating-rotating action removes plaque biofilm around the gingival margin.
INDEPENDENT RESEARCH FINDINGS
The Cochrane Review has consistently concluded that oscillation-rotation brushes showed statistically significant reductions in both plaque and gingivitis.2* Oral-B also offers a range of 9 different brush heads, so you can choose the one that’s right for each patient.
COLLABORATING FOR BETTER OUTCOMES
In our practice we work together as an interdisciplinary team that’s committed to optimal patient care. Integrating the Oral-B power brush into the office has led to the best homecare possible. We recommend Oral-B to our patients for successful outcomes.
