Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal Maintenance

After you have completed your treatment for gum disease, our dentists will schedule regular appointments for periodontal maintenance to ensure that your gum disease does not return and that your mouth remains free of harmful bacteria. Call 859-269-4613 today to learn more about periodontal maintenance in Lexington, Kentucky, and to make your appointment with Drs. David O’Donnell, and William Galbreath at ODonnell Family Dentistry.

If your gums are tender, red or swollen, or if they bleed easily, you may suffer from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease, is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque, which accumulate on the teeth. When not treated, periodontal disease can result in the loss of teeth, gum tissue and bone. While gum disease is not curable, we can treat the condition and keep it under control to protect your oral health. Our dentist can provide periodontal maintenance to help treat periodontal disease and prevent the serious effects of the condition.

Periodontal maintenance involves visiting our office on a regular basis, typically once every three months, for a professional cleaning. These treatments include thorough cleanings both above and below the gumline, removing plaque, tartar (hardened plaque, also called dental calculus), and bacteria to prevent the condition from worsening. Periodontal maintenance is recommended every three months because when biofilm is not removed, the periodontal bacteria begin to flourish within three to 12 weeks. By providing a cleaning at 12 weeks (three months), we are able to remove these bacteria and keep the condition under control. To learn more about periodontal maintenance and how we can treat gum disease, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.
