Consistent maintenance will keep gingivitis at bay
If you’ve recently had a procedure to eradicate gingivitis or periodontal disease from your mouth and gums, don’t wait another 12 months before deciding to see the dentist again.
Almost immediately following a treatment, plaque and tartar begin to form again. Patients aren’t aware that periodontal maintenance is the only sure way to keep gum disease from returning. Procedures such as scaling and root planing should be performed at regular intervals following any periodontal treatment. Suggested maintenance includes the continued removal of plaque and tartar, scaling and tooth planing and polishing.
