From Hell to Heaven, Preventative Care for the Orthodontic Patient

Preventative care for the orthodontic patient can be a stressful experience for a dental clinician and patient.

Date: Tuesday, July 12, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM EDT / 6:00 PM CDT / 4:00 PM PDT / 11:00 PM GMT
Sponsor:  EMS Dental
Duration: 1 Hour

Preventative care for the orthodontic patient can be a stressful experience for a dental clinician and patient. With a much larger surface area for biofilm to adhere to and with orthodontic appliances making it harder for the clinician to perform their care, it can often lead to an appointment where not all the biofilm is removed and the clinician is feeling stressed. Treatment doesn’t have to be this way, using the GBT protocol for orthodontic treatment can change the experience to a positive one for both the clinician and the patient.

Webinar learning objectives

  • Understand dental complications and risk of disease for the orthodontic patient
  • Understand how to motivate and advanced oral hygiene instructions needed for the orthodontic patient
  • Understand how the GBT protocol can prevent disease and maintain health in the orthodontic patient
  • Understand how AIRFLOW technology can incorporated into the orthodontic treatment protocol
