Periodontal maintenance is a procedure that is done to clean your teeth thoroughly. It is very important to stop the periodontal disease from getting any worse.
Periodontal maintenance cleans any tartar and plaque buildup on your teeth. It helps your teeth to look better and will also improve your breath!
During a maintenance cleaning, we remove any tartar and plaque buildup above and below your gums. This includes your gum pockets and underneath your gum line. We also remove bacteria. In bad cases of periodontal disease, we may medicate your teeth (and gum pockets) with an antibiotic or antimicrobial gel. We also use this time to take radiographs and get a clear view of your teeth and gums.
If you are due for a maintenance cleaning or have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (707) 765-6021.
