Can we improve oral health with iTOP? , Brisbane

1h English

Individually trained oral prophylaxis (iTOP) is the main pillar of maintenance of oral health and has been implemented in dental practices worldwide.

Effective regular mechanical plaque control, as the principal component of iTOP concept, is a gold standard that can be achieved only in well informed and trained individuals.

It is of a paramount importance for prevention and successful treatment as well as maintenance of results achieved following the therapy.

As one size does not fit us all, iTOP advocates individual approach that is tailored to individual needs of our patients. As such, it is highly effective in promoting positive behaviour and habits towards prevention of the most common oral diseases such as dental caries and periodontitis.
