Periodontal Disease is something that requires routine maintenance. You must come in periodically for a unique type of cleaning.
After your periodontal treatment is complete you will be seen routinely (about 4 times a year) for periodontal maintenance. During these appointments, the doctor will check pocket depths carefully, and clean hard to get plaque and calculus from above and below the gum line.
It takes only 24 hours for plaque to turn into calculus, so don’t wait! Be sure to come in for your routine periodontal maintenance as your dentist directs.
