Periodontal Maintenance Cleanings

After completing periodontal therapy, your condition has been arrested, but not cured. Periodontal diseases are chronic diseases, much like diabetes and cardiovascular disease, which require constant monitoring to ensure that your disease remains inactive.

Most treated periodontal patients require more frequent cleanings than those patients who have not been affected by periodontal disease. Typically, our treated patients benefit from cleanings at three month intervals, rather than every six months, because they are more susceptible to recurrent periodontal disease.

During your periodontal maintenance visit, your periodontal status is closely monitored to identify early changes. At times, interceptive periodontal procedures are initiated to treat any sites that demonstrate signs of disease activity. In this way, further bone loss can be prevented. Our dental hygienists will communicate with your Dentist after each visit to share pertinent information regarding the stability of your periodontal condition. We firmly believe that preventive dentistry is the best dentistry.
