Periodontal Maintenance

Our team understands the importance of managing gum disease, so we offer periodontal maintenance, which is a specialized cleaning procedure designed for patients with this issue. We are committed to providing effective treatments to prevent the progression of gum disease, preserve your natural teeth, and improve your gum and overall health.

Understanding Gum Disease

Gum disease is a common oral health condition that affects the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gums and the bone. It’s primarily caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth and can lead to gum inflammation, bleeding gums, receding gums, and eventual tooth loss if left untreated.

Factors such as poor oral hygiene, smoking, genetics, hormonal changes, and certain systemic conditions can contribute to the development and progression of gum disease.

The Importance of Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance is crucial in managing gum disease and preventing its progression. After undergoing initial treatment, such as scaling and root planing, it’s essential to maintain regular follow-up appointments for periodontal maintenance. These visits typically occur every three to four months, but the frequency may vary depending on the severity of the gum disease and your individual needs.

What to Expect During Periodontal Maintenance

During a periodontal maintenance appointment, our skilled dental hygienist will thoroughly examine your gums, teeth, and overall oral health. The following steps are typically involved in the procedure:

  • Plaque and Tartar Removal: The dental hygienist will use special instruments to carefully remove the plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and along the gumline.
  • Tooth Polishing: After plaque and tartar removal, your teeth will be polished to remove surface stains and achieve a smooth, clean appearance.
  • Assessment of Gum Health: The dental professional will evaluate the health of your gums, checking for any signs of inflammation, gum recession, or pocket depths.
  • Oral Health Education: Our dental team will provide personalized oral hygiene instructions to help you maintain optimal oral health at home.
