Because of the difficulty involved in cleaning interdental spaces, this is often neglected when performing oral hygiene. This means an increased risk of developing oral diseases and disorders such as caries, periodontal and peri-implant diseases or halitosis. 

That is why it is imperative to emphasise at the clinic why carrying out proper interproximal hygiene that ensures both the removal of dental plaque, or biofilm, and the reduction of gingival inflammation is so important. The “Current Research” section focuses on these aspects and reviews the leading studies that have appeared in various scientific journals justifying the need to use interproximal hygiene tools. 

These tools are precisely the central theme of the “DENTAID Solutions” section, which discusses the usefulness and indications of the three most important implements for interdental cleaning: dental floss and tape, interproximal brushes and oral irrigators. 

One year after the official presentation of the new classification of periodontal and peri-implant diseases, “The voice of SEPA” reaffirms the excellent reception the classification has received from the scientific community and dental professionals, who are gradually incorporating it in their clinical practice for better management and control of their patients. 

In the “Interview” section, Dr Alejandra Chaparro, a dentist and researcher and the current President of the Chilean division of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), tells us about the latest advances in the studies examining the relationship between periodontitis and adverse pregnancy outcomes. 

The “Aula DENTAID” educational section offers extensive information on the course entitled “Orthodontics: The Dental Hygienist’s Role in Treatment Success,” addressing dental hygienists and taught in various cities throughout Spain. 

Still in the sphere of the dental hygienist, the “Hygienist’s View” section addresses the precautions that must be taken when practicing oral and perioral piercing, as well as the risks involved in this practice. 

In the area of collaboration with the Spanish Society of Oral Surgery, “The Voice of SECIB” discusses the historical origin of osteonecrosis of the jaw, the current situation and the future prospects for treatment of the disease. 

The aim of the research presented in the “Study” section is to evaluate the efficacy of a mouthwash containing chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride as a complement to the mechanical removal of plaque in the treatment of peri-implant mucositis. 

Finally, the “News” section provides information on DENTAID’s participation in numerous scientific events, including the meetings of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and the Spanish Society of Periodontology & Osseointegration (SEPA), as well as on several initiatives by the company to foster learning in the field of oral health, such as the Perio·Next First Clinical Case Contest and a monographic on the dental supervision of cancer patients. 

Likewise, the “News” section unveils the latest updates on the different products DENTAID offers, such as Waterpik® water flossers, the formulation of Perio·Aid® Bioadhesive Gel and the latest VITIS® Sonic campaign.
