Periodontal maintenance refers to routine maintenance for individuals who suffer from serious oral concerns. Most notably, periodontal maintenance may be provided for individuals with gingivitis or periodontitis.
Periodontal maintenance generally includes frequent visits to the dentist to clean the entire area of the mouth. It is usually performed over a specified amount of time or until all oral health concerns are properly dealt with and the symptoms of gum disease are managed and fully under control.
1. Implant Maintenance
For patients with dental implants, a typical maintenance appointment should include updating the patient's medical and dental history, reviewing oral hygiene practises and making appropriate adjustments, clinical and radiographic assessment of the implants and peri-implant tissues, assessing implant stability, removing any implant-retained plaque and calculus, and establishing maintenance intervals.
Sub gingival cleaning
Subgingival cleaning is a dental procedure that involves the removal of plaque and tartar from below the gum line to improve gum health and prevent gum disease.
Supra gingival cleaning
Supragingival cleaning is a dental procedure that involves the removal of plaque and tartar from above the gum line to improve oral hygiene and prevent tooth decay.
