BRISBANE, Australia: With dental implants set to become an increasingly common treatment option for edentulous patients in the future, regular maintenance will be imperative to ensure implant functionality and to prevent biological complications. At the recent 2019 International Symposium on Dental Hygiene (ISDH), Dr Tihana Divnic-Resnik delivered an engaging presentation titled “The role of chemical biofilm control in prevention of periodontitis and peri-implant disease” in a session sponsored by Swiss oral health company Curaden.
The Indian Society of Oral Implantologists aims
at the advancment of the science and art of Oral Implantology.
It focuses on research and education by promoting the current and innovative
procedures. It strives to improve dental health and comfort of the public. These are
carried out in a manner that foster a high standard of ethics in dental practice. The society
recognizes and honours significant contributions made in the filed of implantology.
Our teeth are constantly exposed to mechanical and chemical wear, and with age, our oral immune system becomes less effective at fighting pathogenic bacteria. Needless to say, the resulting enamel loss and gingival recession lead to sensitivity, and the teeth lose their natural colour. Approaching dentistry with the mind of a chemist, owner of Andjana Dr Andreas Teichmann is the inventor of Dentcoat, an ingenious prophylactic technology that remineralises the teeth, protects them against biofilm build-up and helps to prevent periodontitis.
