Oral Health Summit – Optimising oral health in the Invisalign journey
Taking place on Friday 28 May 2021, FMC will welcome world-leading experts to deliver lectures on the best approaches around.
The virtual Oral Health Summit will be hosted in conjunction with charity partner, the Oral Health Foundation and National Smile Month.
Completely free to attend, it will provide delegates with the current learnings and approaches in line with the British Society of Periodontology’s latest guidelines.
Delegates can also gain 6+ hours of enhanced CPD throughout the day. Running from 8:30am to 5:30pm, the easy-to-access on-demand lectures mean you can tune it at any point throughout the day.
Claire Louise Berry is one of the key speakers deliver a lecture on the day.
Titled ‘Optimising oral health in the Invisalign journey’, Claire will share her journey both as a patient and an oral health expert.
She details how she and her colleagues have developed a robust prevention programme pre-Invisalign treatment. This ensures that patients’ oral health is optimal at the start and throughout their treatments.
‘Wearing aligners for 22 hours a day is a breeding ground for bacteria,’ she said.
‘It is not ethical to charge patients for providing Invisalign if they start off with, or develop gum disease or other issues.
‘Even when patients are eligible for treatment, prevention should always come first and we should definitely not agree to a treatment that is going to increase the risk of problems. That’s where our role in oral hygiene is essential prior to treatment.’
Alongside the lecture, there will also be an Itero virtual stand where demonstrations will take place.
