Periodontal maintenance appointments are typically scheduled for one hour with a member of our periodontal therapist team.
During the appointment, your teeth will be cleaned and measurements will be taken. Digital x-rays may be recommended at certain maintenance appointments to evaluate your bone levels and ensure that your disease is remaining dormant. It is up to you to schedule regular periodontal maintenance appointments. The frequency of these visits will be determined by your periodontist and dentist – who will work together on all your treatment needs.
