I know as practitioners and advocates for our patients, we share a common goal to offer them the best care possible. We want to get our patients as healthy as they can be in the shortest amount of time.
When we are putting patients on a 3-month Treatment program to begin shifting the biofilm to a healthy state, there are certain things your patients can do to help that process go along as quickly as possible. The key is FREQUENCY. I want you to keep this in mind as we are making treatment recommendations. It’s definitely not about putting together a program for patients that consists of random products that they may not use, it’s about figuring out a routine and using the most important products more frequently. The more your patient is willing to do throughout the day to keep a healthy environment in their mouth, the quicker treatment will go. For example, your patient could use the Boost Mouth Spray or Xylitol Gum throughout the day in addition to the 3-month Treatment Kit. By doing this, not only will they be getting the benefits from the Treatment and Maintenance Rinses morning and night, but they will also be elevating the pH in their mouth regularly during the day, such as after eating and drinking. The more frequently we increase the pH above that critical point at 5.5, the better opportunity we have to keep the bacteria in a healthy balance, but we will also work toward winning the demin/remin battle, preventing net mineral loss that leads to white spot lesions and eventual cavitation.
Please let us know if you have any questions you would like to have answered on the blog because most likely if you have the question, so do lots of other practices as well! I look forward to hearing back from you.
Have a wonderful day!
