Mechanical plaque removal is the most common practice of oral hygiene, at its most basic consisting of toothbrushing and interdental cleaning. New products enter the market, and the industry provides information about them to dental care professionals. It usually takes somewhat longer for research papers and data to reach the profession. In this webinar, we provide an overview of new, scientific knowledge within mechanical plaque removal. This will help those working in the field to provide patients with up-to-date evidence-based recommendations.
