Healthy patients: Even in patients with no visible issues, potential pathogens can be transported from the soft tissue to the teeth and gums, where they can easily colonize an unbalanced plaque biofilm.

Healthy patients: Oral health is not just the absence of dental diseases. While a healthy mouth has a balanced biofilm, it doesn’t take much to knock the equilibrium of the biofilm off-balance. Destabilizing events can range from a change in diet, to illness and stress.

Healthy patients: Make ‘healthy patients’ central to your dental team’s work. Not only do they represent regular customers for preventive procedures – if satisfied, they could also become the most passionate recommenders of your dental practice. They can also be risk-averse and concerned for their oral health. Guide and support them – reassure them that together you can prevent dental diseases and their consequences.
