Periodontal maintenance cleanings

Routine dental cleaning is a preventive measure to ensure you have healthy oral conditions. During routine cleanings, plaque and tartar are removed from above your gum lines. However, chances are there that some plaque might get accumulated below your gums and form the building ground for bacteria. It can give rise to periodontal diseases, which, in turn, can affect your overall dental conditions. Periodontal maintenance cleanings, also known as deep cleaning, clean below your gums and eradicates all bacteria building plaque and tartar.

Why is periodontal maintenance necessary?

The calculus under your gums can create the perfect environment for bacteria to grow. This build-up cannot be cleared by regular brushing, flossing, or cleaning. Periodontal maintenance cleanings are done deep inside your gums. The calculus can cause your gums to pull away from your teeth leading to the pocket formation. If it is not treated on time, the bacteria will accumulate, and the infection will progress further. It can eventually lead to jawbone and tooth loss.

Hence you must get your teeth regularly checked by a dentist. Even after the cleaning, you will have to visit the dental clinic regularly to maintain the results. Take all the necessary preventive steps like maintaining proper oral hygiene regularly and following your dentist’s instructions.
