If your gums are tender, red, swollen or bleed easily, you may suffer from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque which accumulates on the teeth. When not treated, periodontal disease can result in the loss of teeth, gum tissue and bone. While periodontal disease and bone loss are not curable, we can treat the condition and keep it under control to protect your oral health. Our dentists are pleased to provide periodontal maintenance to treat the problem and prevent the serious effects of this condition.
Periodontal maintenance involves visiting our office on a regular basis, typically once every three months for a professional cleaning. Your treatment will include a thorough cleaning above and below the gum line to remove plaque, tartar (hardened plaque which is also called dental calculus), and bacteria to prevent the condition from worsening. Periodontal maintenance is recommended every three months. When biofilm is not removed, the periodontal bacteria begin to flourish within three to twelve weeks. By providing you with a cleaning every twelve weeks, we are able to remove these bacteria.
