Stay Free of Gum Disease

If you have already undergone treatment for gum disease, Dr. James Lamb may put you on a periodontal maintenance treatment plan. Since the risk of gums becoming infected is still high even after treatment, we take extra steps to ensure the infection does not return. Your treatment plan may require you to come in for cleanings three to four times a year instead of once every six months. This way, we can monitor the health of your gums closely and provide the deeper cleaning you need to keep your gums healthy.

Benefits of Periodontal Maintenance

Eliminating Periodontal Pockets

Periodontal cleanings performed by a periodontist offer numerous benefits to gum disease patients. Our team knows about your dental history and may have been involved with taking care of your gums right after laser gum disease treatment or other procedures that eradicated the infection. We use advanced tools and techniques to ensure the most thorough clean — including deep below the gum line where your toothbrush cannot reach. This ensures we remove all traces of plaque and tartar that may be building up in areas that you cannot see or feel. Periodontal maintenance is essential for anyone who has had gum disease. In addition to frequent cleanings, Dr. Lamb may recommend using prescription-strength oral mouthwashes or other dental hygiene products to keep your mouth clean. These can also help to protect your gums from bacteria and an infection.

Preventing Gum Disease with Periodontal Maintenance

Gum disease prevention is critical for anyone who is at risk for gum disease and for those who have already undergone periodontal disease treatment. Even if you have had laser treatment or another procedure to get rid of the infection, a lack of oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist greatly increase the chances of the infection coming back. Gum disease can destroy the gums and may even cause tooth loss. Dr. Lamb takes extra steps to preserve your natural teeth. Keeping your gums disease-free is always a priority at our practice and we will determine whether you need to include periodontal maintenance as part of your treatment plan after an oral evaluation.
