Perio Maintenance - 3, 6, 12 months
Unfortunately periodontal disease is not curable, however it is maintainable. Regular dental hygiene and periodontal visits will help to keep you healthy in conjunction with excellent home care.
Periodontal maintenance is performed for patients with periodontal disease. During the periodontal maintenance, pocket depths are measured to determine areas of concern. All teeth are cleaned and polished. Oral hygiene instructions are reviewed in order to reinforce the importance of home care. For most patients a 3 month recall interval is recommended, however some patients may require more or less frequent cleanings.
