Biofilm management in orthodontics

A number of dental professionals worldwide expressed concern over complications due to patient’s poor oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment.

Fixed braces severely hinder correct biofilm removal, influence changes in biofilm composition and distribution and thus create a favorable condition for plaque to rapidly adhere and accumulate. As a result, enamel demineralization and gingivitis have been regarded as the most prevalent consequences of biofilm formation among orthodontic patients.

In general, clinicians provide routine oral hygiene instruction to orthodontic patients but the efficacy of OHI might be limited, as only individually created oral hygiene plan is sustainable.


The lecture will also touch questions like, who is responsible for training in oral hygiene, when to start, how to implement individual biofilm management in practice, how to manage time for training, what are the specifics of ortho patients regarding their motivation.
