Periodontal Maintenance Cleanings

Most dentists would agree that after scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), most patients do not require any further surgical therapy. However, all patients with a history of periodontal disease should have ongoing maintenance therapy to sustain their periodontal health. If maintenance is not performed, a patient’s periodontal bone loss can progress very rapidly. Periodontal maintenance cleanings are recommended every 3 to 4 months to prevent further bone loss from periodontal disease.

Preventive Cleanings

Once tartar build-up forms on your teeth, only a dental professional can remove it. Neglecting to remove tartar build-up can cause your gums to become infected, inflamed (bleeding) and possibly lead to periodontal disease. Preventative cleanings remove light tartar build-up and stains from your teeth. This is done with the help of an ultrasonic scaler, polishing, flossing, or sandblasting.

Routine dental cleanings are a vital component in preventing periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is an infection of the teeth, gums, and the bone that surround your teeth and can be prevented by routine dental cleanings. Most people who have periodontal disease are not aware of it because it's rarely painful in the early stages. If your gums bleed when you brush your teeth, then you might have active periodontal disease. It is recommended that you have your teeth cleaned every 3 to 6 month to maintain healthy gums and prevent periodontal disease.
