especially on the advice of the Ivory Cross. The basis of this advice is plaque
removal with fluoride toothpaste. W hen this offers insufficient protection,
one usually finds irregular and careless dental hygiene. Information and
instruction concerning daily and careful dental hygiene should receive the
highest priority of dental care professionals. If a patient’s own dental care
cannot be brought up to standard or if this cannot be done immediately, then
(temporary) support can be provided by dental professionals in the form of
preventive treatment. Doing this, however, without improving the self care of
patients has to be regarded an inadequate treatment modality.
