Our patients’ gingival tissue serves as a window to their periodontal and systemic health but maintaining it can be more challenging than one might think. During this Solutions Lab, we will discuss ways the oral health-care professional can increase patient comfort during clinical care, improve compliance with effective home hygiene recommendations, and achieve more successful therapeutic outcomes when it concerns gingival health.

Learning objectives:

  • Uncover three misconceptions commonly associated with the “gingivitis code” D4346
  • Discuss the benefits of effective gingival pain management during hygiene instrumentation
  • Identify four reasons why patients neglect their gums between their hygiene visits
  • Discover Gingi-Pak’s innovative offerings for improving gingival health
