Maintain Optimal Oral Health with Periodontal Maintenance at Newfield Dental

Periodontal maintenance is a crucial aspect of dental care that focuses on preventing and treating gum disease to preserve the health and integrity of your teeth and gums. At Newfield Dental, we understand the importance of periodontal maintenance in maintaining optimal oral health and preventing serious dental problems. Our experienced team is committed to providing comprehensive periodontal care to help our patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles for life.

Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common condition characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and other serious dental problems. Periodontal maintenance plays a crucial role in managing gum disease and preventing its progression.

The Periodontal Maintenance Process

Periodontal maintenance involves regular dental cleanings and check-ups to remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and gums. These visits typically occur every three to four months and are tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. During a periodontal maintenance appointment, our dental hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, remove any plaque or tartar deposits, and assess the health of your gums.

Benefits of Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance offers a wide range of benefits for patients with gum disease, including:

Prevention of Disease Progression: Regular periodontal maintenance visits can help prevent gum disease from worsening and minimize the risk of complications such as tooth loss.

Improved Gum Health: By removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums, periodontal maintenance helps reduce inflammation and promote healthier gums.

Preservation of Tooth Structure: Treating gum disease early with periodontal maintenance can help preserve the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gums and bone.

Fresh Breath: Periodontal maintenance can help eliminate bacteria and plaque buildup that contribute to bad breath, leaving your mouth feeling clean and fresh.

Enhanced Overall Health: Research has shown that there is a link between gum disease and systemic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections. By maintaining healthy gums, you may also be improving your overall health and well-being.
