The Prevention One BOB-App motivates patients to brush interdentally daily while boosting your number of recalls. BOB stands for bleeding on brushing, which is also the app’s main parameter: a mouth map shows patients exactly which interdental spaces bleed on interdental brushing, as well as the necessary interdental brush for each space. As such, patients are motivated to reduce their inflammation scores, and track the process with each recall. Dental hygienist Sabina Floridia explains how the BOB-App has improved her patients’ oral health in the long term.
