Periodontal Maintenance Therapy
Continuing Evaluations and Cleanings to Prevent Bone Loss
Once active periodontal treatment has been completed, periodontal maintenance therapy is instituted to create periodontal stability. Periodontal disease is a chronic condition caused by bacteria that often are normal inhabitants of the oral cavity. To prevent flare ups and recurrences of the condition, a frequent and regular maintenance interval is required. Periodontal Maintenance involves a comprehensive periodontal cleaning, tailored to your specific periodontal concerns in conjunction with continual assessments of your periodontal condition and modifications in therapy to promote periodontal stability. Frequency of cleaning and specific treatment modalities are tailored to your individual periodontal concerns.
