Oral hygiene and periodontal prophylaxis
Our dental practice has a conservative and preventive philosophy so we believe it is very important to learn a technique of oral hygiene that is accurate and personalized. We recommend the necessary tools for each patient and we design a customized program of periodic maintenance visits.
Patients who have received periodontal and/or dental rehabilitation treatment should be visited on a regular basis. This periodic prophylaxis (every 3, 4 or 6 months) along with good oral hygiene is essential to maintain the results achieved after the treatment and to enjoy a healthy mouth for a long time.
Periodic prophylaxis is not a mouth cleansing but a comprehensive oral and dental examination of the teeth and gums with conventional and 3D radiology and other complementary tests if necessary. In each visit the elimination of the tartar and accumulated plaque is carried out above and below the gum according to the need of each tooth and/or implant.
