Getting rid of gingivitis or periodontal disease from your gums and mouth is essential to having a healthy smile.
If you've recently had a procedure to address gingivitis or periodontal disease, don't wait another year to see your dentist again.
Plaque and tartar begin to form almost immediately following a treatment. 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.
