Periodontal Maintenance in Rock Hill, SC

Modern Periodontal Treatments for Patients With Gum Disease

When you have gum disease, you need to make and keep periodontal maintenance appointments every three or four months. Unlike other preventative maintenance check-ups, periodontal maintenance involves deep cleaning between the gums and the teeth in the area known as the “periodontal pocket”. Our goal during this procedure is to remove bacteria from the pocket to stop the spread of gum disease. Over time, you will notice fewer symptoms thanks to consistent sanitizing of the affected areas.
