Stop the Progression of Periodontal Disease
Periodontal maintenance more thoroughly cleans your teeth. The treatment controls the growth of bacteria on your teeth and gums to help prevent the progression of gingivitis and periodontitis.
Stage 1 Periodontal Maintenance cleans above your gum line.
This is known as supragingival cleaning. Your periodontist in Boca Raton will clean (scale) the area above your gums to remove plaque that harbors harmful bacteria.
Stage 2 Periodontal Maintenance reaches beneath your gum line.
This vital maintenance step is called subgingival cleaning. The procedure removes damaging bacteria from your deeper gum pockets under your gum line.
Stage 3 Periodontal Maintenance targets your tooth root.
Root planing by your Boca Raton periodontist eliminates harmful bacteria from your tooth roots. This procedure is vital for stopping the dangerous progression of bacteria growth around your tooth roots and gum tissue.
Contact your periodontist in Boca Raton about a thorough periodontal maintenance program. Protect your teeth and gums from the damage caused by periodontal disease.
