An occlusal assessment today could improve your patients’ future oral health

Hygienists have a key role to play in diagnosing malocclusions and educating patients on the long-term risks of this condition.

Patients living with malocclusion may find that the misalignment of their teeth is negatively affecting their quality of life, self-esteem, and oral health. We know malocclusion is a common condition, but the importance of treating this disease may be lost on some patients. Hygienists and other dental professionals can play a key role in bridging this education gap by not only identifying malocclusions early but effectively communicating the long-term risks associated with this condition.

Read the full study to see why occlusal assessments need to be a standard part of your hygiene workflow—and how to strengthen your patient relationships by taking time to perform them.
