What Is Periodontal Maintenance Therapy?

Periodontal disease is very similar to other diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, however, they are not infectious disorders.

They are chronic and non-curable but very controllable – just like periodontal disease.

Periodontal Maintenance Therapy is an on-going program designed to prevent the progression and furthering any complications. It is usually necessary for patients who are susceptible to or have been treated for gum disease and will likely need more frequent dental visits than people without it. Maintenance visits are generally 3-4 months long, depending on your unique case. With our skilled Periodontist, we will help prevent additional dental problems now and in the future. Even someone dedicated to good oral hygiene will be unable to completely prevent the formation of calculus (tartar) on the teeth.

The Important of Preventative Oral Care

Simply flossing and brushing will keep the calculus to only a minimum, but regular maintenance is needed to professionally remove what’s been missed.

The most important factor – is how dedicated you are to your oral hygiene at home.

During your scheduled maintenance cleaning, our dental hygienist will check for hidden periodontal problems, including:

  • Swollen and red gums
  • Loose, moving teeth
  • Bleeding gums
  • Severe sensitivity in teeth

Get in Touch With Our Expert Staff Today!

Our periodontist will recommend how often you should have a periodontal maintenance visit, as well as how to care for your condition at-home to disrupt your normal life as much as possible. The frequency will be determined by the type and extent of your periodontal disease, the type of treatment you have had, how you’ve responded to those treatments, and how quickly you develop plaque.
