  • Full-Mouth Debridement – removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your entire mouth
  • Customized Treatment Plan – choosing the right way forward for your specific situation

At Encinitas Dental Art, we emphasize the importance of comprehensive oral care, recognizing the strong link between periodontal health and overall well-being. Our periodontal maintenance program is designed to prevent the progression of gum disease, a condition that can significantly impact not just your oral health but your general health too.

Understanding Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, affecting a vast number of adults, is primarily caused by the accumulation of bacterial plaque. This condition can range from mild gum inflammation, known as gingivitis, to more severe forms, such as periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss if untreated. The foundation of preventing and managing gum disease lies in effective daily oral hygiene practices and professional dental care.

The Significance of Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance is a specialized cleaning procedure that goes beyond the scope of a regular dental cleaning. It is specifically designed for those who have experienced forms of gum disease. This treatment involves the removal of plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line, targeting areas that are difficult to reach with daily brushing and flossing. The goal is to halt the progression of gum disease and maintain the health of the gum tissues.

Customized Care for Optimal Results

Recognizing that every patient’s condition is unique, we tailor our periodontal maintenance program to meet individual needs. Factors such as the severity of the gum disease, the patient’s overall health, and specific risk factors like smoking or diabetes are considered when developing a personalized treatment plan. This approach ensures that each patient receives the most effective care for their particular situation.

Benefits of Regular Periodontal Maintenance

    • Plaque and Tartar Control: Professional cleaning removes harmful bacteria and hard deposits that cannot be eliminated by brushing and flossing alone.

    • Disease Prevention: Regular maintenance prevents the progression of gum disease and reduces the risk of developing new infections.

    • Aesthetic Improvements: Removing stains and plaque can lead to a brighter, healthier-looking smile.

    • Fresher Breath: Eliminating bacterial deposits significantly reduces halitosis associated with gum disease.

Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation

As part of our commitment to your oral health, Encinitas Dental Art conducts thorough evaluations to assess the health of your gums and the structures supporting your teeth. These assessments allow us to detect any signs of periodontal disease early and to implement timely, effective interventions.

Your Role in Periodontal Health

While professional care is essential, maintaining good oral hygiene at home is equally important. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using recommended oral health products can significantly contribute to the success of your periodontal maintenance plan.
