Periodontal Maintenance

Welcome to Palm Beach Periodontics, where periodontal health is a priority! Once you have completed active treatment to restore oral health, maintenance of healthy bones and gums is essential for overall oral health and general well-being. After all, once you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, studies have shown that you are more prone to recurrence of active disease than someone who has never had periodontal disease before.

Understanding the Importance of Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, has serious implications for oral and overall health. Research links it to heart disease, diabetes, tooth loss, pregnancy complications, and even Alzheimer’s disease. While there is a genetic component to periodontal disease, the most preventable factor is plaque and bacteria buildup on teeth. Without proper oral hygiene and dental care, plaque hardens into tartar, leading to inflammation and infection. Periodontal maintenance, which includes regular dental visits and cleanings, is crucial in preventing and managing chronic inflammation in the gums and preserving overall gum health.

Maintenance at Palm Beach Periodontics

Regular dental cleanings are essential for preventive dental care, and can often be handled at your general dentist’s office once active periodontal treatment has been completed. However, in certain cases, some patients who are more prone to periodontal disease will require more frequent cleanings and monitoring by a periodontist in order to ensure that relapse does not occur. With our periodontists, you can trust that your periodontal health is in skilled hands for long-term maintenance.

Palm Beach Periodontics is absolutely amazing! I would give 10 stars if possible. My daughter had an emergency and needed to see a periodontist immediately, I called the office around 11:30 and they got her in at 1:30 the same day! The ladies in the office were all absolutely amazing and accommodating.
