What is periodontal maintenance?
Periodontal maintenance is a tooth and gum cleaning process that removes bacteria and other pathogens that can cause gum infection. If there is an issue, periodontal maintenance will prevent gum disease progression (gingivitis) and keep your teeth intact. It will also stop infections from developing in pockets between your gums and teeth that could spread to the rest of your body.
When does a dental professional usually perform periodontal maintenance?
The best time to have this treatment is before gingivitis progresses to periodontitis when its advanced stages can cause bone loss. Benign signs of gum disease include slight bleeding and inflammation while brushing the teeth. Caught at this stage, it can prevent the worsening of your condition. However, this type of treatment could also be performed even if your teeth have already begun to loosen.
