Our top Toronto implants dentist offers Periodontal maintenance to patients.
What Is Periodontal Maintenance?
Periodontal maintenance is a cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans the teeth. Maintenance is an important part of keeping your teeth healthy. It is also crucial in preventing periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease and gingivitis occur when bacteria from plaque colonizes on the gum tissue. The bacteria can cause serious inflammation and problems with the gum. If the disease gets bad enough, teeth can shift and even fall out. Infections can also occur.
Why To Get Periodontal Maintenance?
Removing Tartar and Plaque – Periodontal maintenance removes tartar and plaque on the teeth that can’t be removed with brushing and flossing. This helps to prevent periodontal disease.
Aesthetics – Maintenance can help to remove or reduce stains on your teeth. In turn, you’ll usually have a whiter smile after treatment than before periodontal maintenance.
Fresher breath – Periodontal disease is usually accompanied by bad breath. By treating the periodontal disease with periodontal maintenance, you will notice fresher breath afterwards.
Identification of health issues – Dentists who perform periodontal maintenance also evaluate the risk of periodontitis and often spot signs of medical problems like diabetes and kidney problems. In some cases, they see the signs of medical problems before doctors spot them.
