Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance (PM) is essential to the ongoing periodontal stability of patients. Optimal periodontal health requires regular follow up care. The protocol for maintenance is every three months as a period of time longer than that allows the bacterial accumulations to harden making their removal more difficult and can potentially cause the need for a repeat of the initial treatment to remove the buildup on the teeth. Periodontal maintenance care helps eliminate the bacterial plaque on a regular basis and facilitate healing and prevent further destruction of bone.
