Now Let's Keep It That Way

Periodontal Maintenance in Modesto, CAYou have treated your gum disease with scaling and root planing or osseous surgery. Now what? Once pockets of infection have been eliminated, maintaining the health of your gums takes center stage. Left untreated or unmaintained, gum disease progresses, causing further destruction of the bone and gum tissues supporting your teeth. However, with proper treatment followed by consistent maintenance with a periodontal cleaning regime, you can keep your teeth, gums and underlying bone in top shape. Let the experienced team at Brewer Family Dentistry help you preserve your gum and bone health with periodontal maintenance services.

Periodontal Maintenance Affords Healthy, Confident Smiles

Arresting the Disease Process

Once diagnosed, gum disease must be treated to preserve gum and bone health, as these critical tissues support your teeth. Treatment usually begins with scaling and root planing, a non-surgical therapy designed to remove plaque, tartar and bacteria from beneath the gum line. Scaling and root planing minimizes the spaces between the teeth and gums (also known as “periodontal pockets”), leaving fewer areas for bacteria to hide. For conditions having progressed to moderate or advanced levels of bone loss, or those not responding well to scaling and root planing, osseous surgery may be indicated for treatment. Arresting the gum disease process is the first step towards enjoying a healthy, confident smile.

Keeping Regular Periodontal Maintenance Visits

Keeping your smile healthy following gum disease treatment is vital not only for your mouth, but for the rest of your body as well. Having a periodontal cleaning and evaluation every three to four months helps you better manage oral bacteria, and maintain the health of your gums and jaw bone. If you have been treated for gum disease, periodontal maintenance visits replace bi-annual prophylactic recare procedures, as your teeth and gums require a little extra attention regular cleanings cannot provide. During your periodontal maintenance visits, you can expect:

  • Thorough, gentle periodontal cleaning and polish
  • Gum tissue assessment
  • Periodontal pocket measurements
  • Examination of teeth
  • Low radiation x-rays (as needed)
  • Oral cancer screening
