At Al-Fa Perio we take pride in the long-term success of our treatment planning. One aspect that has hugely contributed to a stable mouth is our unique customized programs for aftercare once treatment has already been carried out.
On completion of treatment, each patient is given a unique program to follow that enables that person to follow specific instructions on maintaining and facilitating oral hygiene.
The Post-Treatment Programs includes:
A plan of action. This is stepwise instruction on how you are to take care of your mouth. These instructions are specifically tailored to you.
Hygiene video. A video is created using our Futuredent software camera system that shows the hygienist explaining the care that you will require at home. You will be able to see the exact techniques that are needed to look after your own mouth.
The video will be created whilst you are sitting in the dental chair and will be of your own mouth. This means that when you are in the comfort of your own home you can use the video as a reminder of how you should clean and look after your mouth. Many patients have found this visual aid very useful.
Nutrition and Diet advice. This help you to prevent damage to teeth as a result of your diet.
Preliminary Periodontal Starter Pack. You will be given and advised of specific tools that are best for you to use to help keep any relapse at bay.
Regular Hygiene and Specialist Dentist visits. This enables us to monitor very closely the condition of your gums and mouth. We like to review you on a regular basis to identify anything that may appear abnormal so that we can address it quickly before further deterioration. However with our very scrupulous maintenance programs we are very confident of a high level of success.
