parodontax: Above and beyond for gums
Working together to tackle gum disease
Prevalence of gum disease remains high, with over 80% of adults showing signs of gum disease.1 In spite of the efforts of all dental professionals to tackle the condition, for many reasons, patients often struggle to adopt and maintain consistent oral hygiene and cleaning habits.
As global healthcare systems move to a model of prevention for dentistry rather than treatment, and as scientific advances highlight the links between gum health and other conditions, we know that together we can make a difference.
Our mission is to partner with you to stop the devastating progression of gum disease by improving patients’ awareness of gum health, encouraging good cleaning habits and driving their motivation to act.
We need to help patients to recognise that one foundation of a healthy smile is healthy gums. And that the key to healthy gums lies in their hands with their daily tooth brushing efforts. Read on to learn more.

Together we can enhance your patient’s clean

Supporting you to help patients on a journey to improved gum health
Whilst mechanical plaque control is the key to the prevention of gum disease, we understand that for some patients the motivation to act and sustaining that motivation can be a challenge. And for you, as dental professionals, this may feel like an uphill struggle.
We would like to partner with you to support a change in patient behaviour to increase the chance of starting good habits and harness the power of daily oral hygiene between dental appointments.
Explore the resources in the condition section of this site to find out more about how you can support patients to make a daily change in behaviour for long term prevention.
