Title: Motivational interviewing for improving periodontal health
Author: T. Siebert, I. Malachovsky, D. Statelova, B. Stenchlakova

Abstract: Periodontal health should be defined as a state free from inflammatory periodontal disease that allows an individual to function normally and not suffer any consequences (mental or physical) as a result of past disease. Tissues located in the vicinity of implants, known as peri-implantation tissues, have specific and in many ways similar anatomy. The elaborate protocol of preventive measures to ensure periodontal health is extremely important. There is compelling evidence that motivational interviewing frequently leads to more favourable clinical responses than conventional preventive tools. Herein, we describe that the periodontal health can serve as a vital common reference point for assessing disease, determining meaningful preventive methods and treatment outcomes. This article mainly focuses on the role of new clinical data regarding periodontal health and motivational interviewing, which received a particular attention in recent years such as motivation for abidance and on the prognosis of periodontal health (Tab. 3, Ref. 26).
