More About Periodontal Hygiene in Philadelphia
Our periodontal hygienists at the Philadelphia Center for Dental Implants & Periodontics are trained to look for even the most subtle signs of gum disease. They see patients regularly to help maintain their dental health. By coming in for regular visits, patients not only stay healthier, but also save money by potentially avoiding more expensive visits down the road.
Take a look at some recent patient comments about our periodontal maintenance program:
“Hygienist was superb.” – Judy M.
“I have been going for periodontal care with Tanya twice a year after an implant over 12 years ago. She is thorough and makes you feel comfortable.” – Leonard G.
“Best experience I ever had a dental office. The staff are AMAZING.” – Taylor K.
Even if you’re really diligent with home cleaning, you should know that gum disease can reoccur within 2-4 months of your last professional cleaning. It’s therefore imperative that hardened plaque is professionally removed so that your gums and teeth remain healthy. Frequency of maintenance visits will depend on factors like your personal rate of plaque growth, response to treatment and the type of periodontal disease you have.
