Our Periodontal Maintenance Program Helps You Keep Your Smile Longer
An effective periodontal maintenance program is one that will help patients recover from gum disease and prevent it from recurring. These patients require more than just a preventive cleaning; they need a detailed maintenance cleaning that targets areas of concern and monitors their attachment levels very carefully.
Combating Tooth Loss
In addition to maintenance cleanings every 3 to 4 months, Dr. Elsa Mammen also utilizes locally placed medications and treatments that eliminate bacterial infections under the gums. This keeps the attached tissues tight with the teeth so that pockets do not become any deeper or lead to additional bone loss.
No Need to See A Separate Dental Provider
Some dental offices refer their patients with gum disease to 3rd party dental providers for their treatment and maintenance. Not at Graceful Smiles Dentistry! We’re able to help you each step of the way, no matter where you are in your fight against gum disease.
Most patients require cleanings more frequently in their early fight against periodontal disease. As your disease is eliminated, better cared for, or reverses itself, maintenance visits can once again be spread further apart. It is our goal for every patient to eventually return to regular cleanings every 6 months.
