Loosely defined, periodontics is the care of the gums and the tooth structures below the gum line.
Patients who have battled and overcome the gum disease Gingivitis often believe that normal dental hygiene will be enough moving forward to prevent a recurrence. This simply isn't true. The only way to truly prevent the recurrence of gingivitis and gum disease is periodontal maintenance.
Periodontal maintenance involves the removal of plaque and tartar from the tooth and root, as well as removing any damaged tooth material and planing the roots to expose healthy tooth matter. Finally, we polish your teeth and susceptible root areas to inhibit the buildup of plaque and tartar in the future.
