Periodontal Disease Prevention and Maintenance
Once your periodontal disease treatment is completed, it is very important that you maintain regular professional cleanings. This is the most important aspect for long term resolution of periodontal disease. Research shows that a 3 month recall is critical and recommended. This is necessary because it takes 3 months for the bacteria to repopulate and start to cause destruction of gingival tissue attachment and bone loss again.
Good oral hygiene at home is also essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or from reoccurring. A few minutes a day is enough to care for your teeth and gums. You do not have to lose more teeth to periodontal disease! Brush and clean between your teeth, eat a balanced diet, stay active and schedule regular dental visits for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
