A visit to the dentist at least once a year even if there is no symptomatology is essential for the patients’ re-motivation by the specialist, it is also useful to strengthen habits and oral hygiene techniques.
In current preventive programs there are some determining factors, such as:
- Daily oral hygiene at least twice a day. Each brushing should last no less than 2 minutes.
- Removal of interdental plaque using interdental floss or interproximal brushes.
- Professional teeth cleaning every 6 or 12 months depending on the patients’ needs.
