Why Should I Consider Periodontal Maintenance?

Gums are critical to your mouth’s function, and maintaining their health is as important as your teeth. Gums are susceptible to bacterial infections and tartar, leading to advanced issues like gingivitis and disease if left unaddressed. As your gums recede, food and debris are more easily trapped, causing issues like tooth decay. Gum problem symptoms range from pain and discomfort to tooth loss. Periodontal maintenance is a method of preventing gum decay and disease before it occurs. We can perform maintenance on patients with existing gum conditions or those with healthy gums who want to preserve their oral health.

Should I Schedule Routine Periodontal Maintenance?

We recommend periodontal maintenance for many patients regardless of their oral health’s current state. However, certain factors may require more frequent visits, including:

  • Infection and Inflammation Severity: If you have a severe gum infection or inflammation, we may recommend a periodontal treatment rather than maintenance. Our professionals will examine your mouth to determine the best course of action.
  • Your At-Home Periodontal Care: At-home periodontal care includes more than brushing and flossing. We consider other factors such as your diet, teeth cleanings, and how often you follow dentist recommendations during your daily life.
  • Periodontal Health History: If you have a history of periodontal disease, it will play a part in the kind of care we recommend for you.
