Periodontal Hygiene Program

A periodontal maintenance or hygiene program is an ongoing treatment plan designed to prevent gum disease in the gum tissues and bone supporting your teeth. Your periodontal care visits will be determined by the type of gum disease you have, your rate of plaque buildup and your commitment to good oral hygiene practices at home.

We work closely with your general dentist to formulate the best periodontal maintenance program for you. Along the way, the doctors of Progressive Implantology & Periodontics will keep your dentist informed of your progress. Although we may see you periodically for maintenance therapy, these visits do not replace your regular dental checkups with your family dentist.

At a periodontal maintenance visit you can expect:

  • Medical and dental history update
  • Soft tissue cancer exam
  • Clinical decay examination
  • Clinical periodontal examination
  • Review of oral hygiene as needed
  • Thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums

Your maintenance program and a good home care regimen are vital to the success of your oral health.
