Prime Oral Prophylaxis

iTOP is a unique, systematic hands-on training in mechanical plaque control and patient motivation. It empowers dental professionals to offer each patient a comprehensive prevention programme that is tailored to their individual needs.

Learning Objectives

During iTOP, oral health students will master four effective biofilm control techniques, including the Bass technique, Loop technique, Solo technique and use of calibrated interdental brushes. Hands-on training is led by certified iTOP staff that have many years of experience in training their colleagues and patients. 

iTOP is a cutting-edge programme in prophylaxis where oral hygiene techniques are practised in the mouth, in collaboration with iTOP instructors using the Touch To Teach approach. Touch to Teach is the most effective method of correcting, improving and guiding patient oral hygiene techniques.
