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.

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.

In addition to your periodontal cleaning and evaluation, your appointment will usually include:

  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
  • Examination of tooth decay: Check all tooth surfaces for decay.
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, cheek tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Oral hygiene recommendations: Review and recommend oral hygiene aids as needed. (Electric toothbrushes, special periodontal brushes, fluorides, rinses, etc.)
  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.

Good oral hygiene practices and periodontal cleanings are essential in maintaining dental health and keeping periodontal disease under control!

Testimonials

I can't say enough good things about this place. I have been searching for a good dentist for a decade. This place exceeded my expectations. They have the best customer service! The person who takes appointments is very pleasant. When I walk in the room, they always address me by name and offer me something to drink. I never have to wait long to be seen. I found this place by referral. My friend said his whole family comes here. I was having issues with a crown that was recently put in by another office. I had severe sensitivity. There was a lady who has awesome short hair and Dr. Clark who examined me. These two were so pleasant and sweet. They always made sure I was comfortable. It turns out I needed a root canal. After my teeth were examined, Rochelle sat me down to go over everything. She answered all the questions I had and gave me a print out copy of how much everything was and what I needed. She was always so helpful and always made me feel important and showed that she really cared about me as a person. I have never had a root canal before, but Dr. Clark and the lady with the awesome short hair took care of everything! I always heard rumors that root canals are the worst, but I really did not feel anything. The staff even took the time to call me the next day to make sure I was doing ok. You really do feel like family at this place. I am so happy that I can finally eat anything and not feel pain. After years of searching, I have finally found a dentist I can trust.
