Have you recently received treatment for gum disease or deep cleanings?
If so, then maybe you’re feeling good about your oral condition. Your teeth have no plaque and tartar, and you won’t need to visit your dentist again for another 6 months, right?
Not exactly! Many patients aren’t aware that periodontal cleanings maintenance every 3 or 4 months is the only sure way to keep gum disease from returning.
Periodontal maintenance is regularly performed at certain intervals after procedures such as scaling and root planing. This kind of maintenance includes the removal of plaque and tartar, scaling and tooth planing and polishing. Your dentist will determine the frequency that periodontal maintenance is needed for your oral health.
In most cases, our patients’ mouth health improves when they see us more than twice a year for some quality oral care tune-ups.
When Was the Last Time You Visited the Dentist?
Don’t wait for conditions like tooth pain or gum bleeding before you come to see us at Hills Dental. Regular check-ups can keep both your teeth and gums healthy to stave off diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis, which can erode your oral health over time.
