Clean and disinfect above and below the gumline.
Periodontal maintenance is a procedure for those who have had active periodontal disease treatment and require on-going gum and bone care designed to help prevent further disease. This cleaning involves deeper instrumentation on the tooth surface that is covered by the gums, where the periodontal disease has occurred. These appointments are usually scheduled 2 to 5 times per year. Good home care is as crucial as staying on top of your maintenance program.
