Topic Description :

Homecare Plaque Removal in Prevention of Caries and Periodontal Disease


Caries and periodontal diseases are complex diseases caused by an unbalanced relationship between the bacteria in the biofilm and the host defence mechanisms. The influence of the host response is being widely studied but at present times, in the absence of proven means, the control of plaque formation constitutes the basic approach to prevention of both diseases. Plaque must be removed frequently by mechanical self-care methods. Tailored instruction and motivation of a person, regular visits to the dental office with professional feedback and reinforcement seem to be the most successful approach to prevent occurrence, recurrence and disease progression.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss as effective plaque control influences prevention and control of caries and periodontal diseases
  • Analyze the parameters of choice for manual and electric toothbrushes choice
  • Evaluate the importance of interproximal devices use and how to choose the most suitable ones
  • Utilize tailored instruction and motivation for each patient
