What is the Difference Between a "Regular" Cleaning, a Root Planing, and Periodontal Maintenance? -Brochure

Do your patients understand why they have been scheduled for a root planing procedure? Do they complain about coming in for "cleanings" several times a year? Do they understand what a "cleaning" actually is and how it differs from periodontal maintenance? Most patients don't! In fact, confused and unhappy patients are complaining to State Dental Boards about these procedures in record numbers! You can help your patients understand what they need.

Presented in easy-to-understand terms, this 8-panel, full color, glossy brochure covers:
  • The detailed differences between a prophy, root planing, and perio maintenance
  • Why coming for a "cleaning" twice a year is often not enough to maintain periodontal health
  • Why insurance typically does not cover more than two appointments a year
  • A simple description of periodontal disease your patients will understand
  • Staffing
  • Scheduling
  • Sold in packages of 50.
