In any treatment plan for periodontal diseases, we emphasize the importance of removing plaque by daily brushing and flossing between the teeth. Good oral hygiene is essential to help keep periodontal diseases from becoming more serious or recurring.
In addition, we will want to see you more frequently and at regular intervals following a period of active therapy. This helps to assure that you are maintaining a satisfactory level of oral hygiene. It also gives us the opportunity to remove any plaque or calculus that may have accumulated and to check your mouth to be sure that your periodontal disease remains under control.
