Periodontal
Maintenance

It only takes twenty four hours for plaque that is not removed from your teeth to turn into calculus (tartar)!  Daily home cleaning helps control plaque and tartar formation, but those hard to reach areas will always need special attention.

Periodontal Maintenance

Once your periodontal treatment has been completed, your dentist and dental hygienist will recommend that you have regular maintenance cleanings (periodontal cleanings), usually four times a year. 

At these cleaning appointments, the pocket depths will be carefully checked to ensure that they are healthy. 

Plaque and calculus that is difficult for you to remove on a daily basis will be removed from above and below the gum line.

Healthy gums are the foundation of a healthy smile. But gum disease, a bacterial infection attacking the tissues supporting your teeth, is a serious threat. At Horizon Dental Care, we offer comprehensive periodontal maintenance (deep cleaning) to prevent gum disease and safeguard your smile.

What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, starts with plaque buildup. Plaque is a sticky film containing harmful bacteria that forms on teeth, especially near the gum line. If not removed regularly through brushing and flossing, plaque hardens into calculus (tartar). The toxins produced by these bacteria irritate the gums, causing inflammation, redness, and bleeding. Over time, untreated gum disease can lead to gum recession, bone loss, and eventually, tooth loss.

Who Needs Periodontal Maintenance?

While anyone can develop gum disease, certain factors increase your risk:

·         Poor oral hygiene: Brushing and flossing twice daily are crucial for plaque removal.

·         Smoking & Tobacco Use: Smoking weakens the immune system’s ability to fight gum infection.

·         Diabetes: Uncontrolled diabetes makes gums more susceptible to infection.

·         Stress: Chronic stress can impact gum health.

·         Clenching/Grinding Teeth: This habit can damage gum tissue and bone.

·         Certain Medications: Some medications can dry out the mouth, increasing the risk of gum disease.

·         Poor Nutrition: A lack of essential vitamins and minerals can weaken gums.

Benefits of Regular Periodontal Maintenance:

Periodontal maintenance goes beyond a regular dental cleaning. It’s a deep cleaning procedure that removes stubborn plaque and tartar buildup, especially below the gum line, where brushing and flossing can’t reach. Regular periodontal maintenance offers several benefits:

·         Prevents Gum Disease: Regular cleanings remove harmful bacteria before they can cause damage.

·         Maintains Healthy Gums: Deep cleaning helps keep gums healthy and firm.

·         Promotes Healthy Bone: Periodontal maintenance helps preserve the bone that supports your teeth.

·         Reduces Risk of Tooth Loss: By preventing gum disease progression, you protect your teeth.

·         Improves Overall Oral Health: Healthy gums contribute to a healthy mouth and fresher breath.

What to Expect During Periodontal Maintenance:

·         Comprehensive Exam: We’ll assess your gum health, including measuring gum pockets for signs of gum disease.

·         Scaling & Root Planing: A deep cleaning procedure removes tartar and plaque buildup below the gum line.

·         Personalized Treatment Plan: We’ll discuss your individual needs and recommend at-home care for optimal gum health.
