Regular Cleaning vs Periodontal Maintenance

Posted on 2/22/2021 by Betsy Hoos
Regular Cleaning vs Periodontal MaintenancePeriodontal maintenance is the cleaning of the hollow area of your mouth between your jawbones which holds and houses your teeth. This is where your teeth have their roots or the oral cavity. Our professionals always suggest regular periodontal maintenance for people suffering from periodontal diseases.

Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal disease is an infection in the gums, which can spread and infect the rest of the periodontium membrane. Some of the symptoms include swollen and puffy gums, pus, gum recession, and bad breath. Our periodontal maintenance session involves the removal of tartar and any plaque. This is followed up by a thorough examination of your gums and between the teeth. This procedure is performed to rule out any infection in the gums.
If there is an infection then the infected area is flushed with an antiseptic lotion. This is done to disinfect the area and kill the infection as well as prevent it from spreading. These periodontal maintenance sessions need to be conducted by us once every three to four months.

Regular Maintenance

Regular cleaning involves preventive care of the oral cavity which is highly recommended by our professionals. It helps maintain excellent oral health and prevents any periodontal disease from reoccurring. Regular maintenance also ensures the rest of your teeth and gums stay safe.

A regular maintenance session includes a complete examination of your oral cavity. We look for cavities in your teeth, signs of cancer, or abscess and rule them out. Our professionals also clean out any tartar, plaque, or stains. We also conduct a thorough cleaning of the mouth to enhance your oral health. This also helps protect better bone health and prevents jaw degeneration. If you suffer from periodontal disease, give us a call to schedule your maintenance and our professionals will take it forward.
