Regular cleanings and maintenance keep gingivitis from returning
Eradicating gingivitis or periodontal disease from your mouth and gums is essential to having a healthy smile. If you've recently had this type of procedure, don't wait 12 months to see the dentist again.
Almost immediately following a treatment, plaque and tartar begin to form again. Many patients don't realize that periodontal maintenance is the only sure way to keep gum disease from returning. Procedures such as scaling and root planing should be performed at regular intervals following any periodontal treatment. Suggested maintenance includes the continued removal of plaque and tartar, scaling and tooth planing and polishing.
