To make sure our patients maintain the highest of ongoing periodontal stability, we are passionate about the essential need for periodontal maintenance.
At Poway Perio, we do regular follow up care in order to make sure you, our patients, are getting the most optimal periodontal health care.
HOW OFTEN DO WE RECOMMEND PERIODONTAL MAINTENANCE?
It is key that we make sure our patients who undergo gum surgeries stay healthy. It’s why anyone who has had gum surgery needs to have 4 cleanings a year, about every 3 months. Most people have only 2 cleanings a year; it’s critical to double up on cleanings for patients who have had a history of gum disease or gum surgery to make sure the gum disease doesn’t come back.
For example, like having high blood pressure, there isn’t a 100% curable solution for periodontal disease. However, we can pretty much eliminate the problem and keep it in check with patient home care and Periodontal Maintenance. By conducting Periodontal Maintenance, we can monitor and make sure the disease doesn’t get come back to you.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PM?
It’s important to have follow up periodontal maintenance because it assists in getting rid of bacteria and plaque that can lead to negative consequences and/or recurrence of periodontal disease. Plus, it helps stimulate more healing and prevent more destruction of vital bone.
