Connecting the Dots
Remedial Instrumentation Maintenance


Evidence-based treatment guidelines for periodontitis are well established. Initial instrumentation is a complex task, with many factors that can impact success: morphology, alignment, instrument choice, and time are just a few. We must continually assess the effectiveness of treatment by objectively examining outcomes and addressing limitations with no bleeding points as the goal. The challenge for clinicians is treating periodontal maintenance clients who have completed initial therapy but still have bleeding points. Implementing Remedial Instrumentation Maintenance (RIM) into your practice will improve client outcomes.
Be empowered by the evidence of success at your patient's next visit.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the potential causes of persistent inflammation and bleeding points.
  • Develop techniques for the detection and removal of burnished and residual calculus.
  • Recognize and understand how making different instrument choices will affect periodontal debridement outcomes.
  • Implement patient-centred Remedial Instrumentation Maintenance interventions to impact disease successfully.

A clinical dental hygienist and international speaker, Anna Louise is a vibrant, passionate, award-winning educator with a unique approach to educating her colleagues. Anna Louise’s events incorporate an evidence-based supportive style to encourage implementing skills and techniques into practice.

Danielle Perry, BSc DH, MSc

A Patient Centered Approach to Better Oral Health and Successful Dental Treatment

Many different oral home care tools are available and these tools and how the patient uses them will influence their oral health and any dental treatment they receive. From rinses, to toothbrushes, to interproximal cleaning aids, how do we know what to recommend to patients? What should be considered when developing a home care plan for each patient and how do you implement it in the most effective way?

This course intends to inform the clinician about the evidence behind different oral hygiene aids and guide the clinician through a decision-making process on what may work for their patients to keep their teeth and improve the success and longevity of their dental treatments.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the different options for homecare.
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses of different products.
  • Understand how to develop a homecare plan.
  • Recognize the importance of oral hygiene in the treatment plan
