Taking care of removable dentures - a challenge?
The removal of plaque is the primary goal of prophylactic care to prevent biofilm-associated diseases such as caries, periodontitis and peri-implantitis. In the case of partial denture wearers, professional and at-home preventive measures involve additional challenges related to the patients' age, underlying diseases and the design of their dentures. In some cases, the dental team can support the patient with additional measures.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the following themes:
- Possible problems of cleaning dentures
- Tips for professional prophylaxis
- Tips for cleaning at home
- Supportive measures
