Abstract

Failure to review and monitor the patient may result to relapse of condition; therefore, in erosion risk management, it is essential that a maintenance care regime (recalls) matched to each patient's disease levels and erosion risk status is established, to check patient compliance, monitor wear, reinforce advice, and for encouragement to maintain changed behavior. This chapter describes the importance of recall visits, the establishment of recall intervals, and the activities required to be performed at every recall visits, including evaluation of the outcomes of the treatment with regard to disease control, quality of care, health maintenance, and improvement in patient's quality of life. Through recall visits, a cyclic risk-based maintenance care is established for each patient, with the objective to establish and maintain long-term oral health.
