Experienced Care for a Lifetime of Healthy Smiles

Following gum disease treatment, it is very important to have regular periodontal maintenance done to keep the disease at bay. The best way to prevent the further progression of gum disease is with regular visits to our specialty office. Our experienced hygienists will ensure your oral health is maintained with thorough cleanings and home oral care education.

Gum disease is persistent and can return easily after treatment if follow-up oral care is not adequate. It takes continuous removal of the bacteria that accumulate on the teeth to prevent the further development of the plaque and calculus that cause gum disease.

Your doctor will tailor the frequency of cleaning appointments according to your individual needs. He will give our hygienists any special instructions needed to ensure your care covers all concerns.

Gentle, Thorough Cleanings

Our excellent hygienists have years of experience working with periodontal patients and they are experts at providing comfortable, thorough cleanings. They use ultrasonic scalers and hand instruments to thoroughly remove plaque and calculus from your teeth. After the bacterial plaque is removed and the surfaces of the teeth are smoothed, they do a final polishing.

Home Oral Care Education

Our hygienists teach you good oral care practices so you can keep your teeth and gums in healthy condition. They will also recommend the home oral care tools that you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy and will train you how to brush properly and floss for best results.
