What is Periodontal Maintenance?
Periodontal maintenance is ideal for patients who have mild to moderate gum disease. Gum disease is an incredibly common dental disorder that causes the gums around the teeth to separate. In turn, small pockets form between the gums and the teeth, becoming an area where bacteria can thrive. In order to prevent the disease from getting worse due to this bacteria, a deeper dental cleaning done more regularly can be helpful.
Why would Periodontal Maintenance be needed?
Gum disease cannot be reversed, but it can be easily controlled. The way this is done is with the help of deeper dental cleanings. These cleanings involve clearing away bacteria and plaque buildup both above and below the gum line. This prevents the bacteria from causing further issues with infection, which could result in both tooth and bone loss.
