Fight Periodontal Disease with Regular MaintenanceKeep your smile bright and your body healthy.
If you’ve been diagnosed with periodontal disease, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news? Gum disease isn’t curable. The good news? With the right maintenance, you can prevent the progression of the disease and even build back some bone and tissue. The key is to stay proactive.
Stay ahead of your gum disease.
If not properly maintained, gum disease can wreak havoc in your mouth. Dangerous bacteria will build up, eat away at your gum, teeth, and bone, and even hop a ride into your bloodstream and travel around your body. Bad oral bacteria has been linked to a wide variety of systemic diseases in the body, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, heart attack and stroke, certain cancers, and more. We don’t want that for you! That’s why it’s so important that you visit our office for regular gum disease maintenance.

Stay proactive. Stay healthy.
If you’ve completed a laser deep clearing, you shouldn’t stop there! Once that bad bacteria has taken hold in your mouth, you’re much more susceptible to a relapse, even if you’ve done a number of deep cleanings. Your doctor and hygienist at North County Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry will work together with you to create a maintenance plan to keep the bacteria at bay.
The most important thing is consistency. You continue to brush, floss, and use your Perio Protect trays at home, and we’ll see you more often in the office to help keep your mouth clean.
Most maintenance plans include:
- Perio Protect–tray therapy that treats gum disease at home
- Perio Cleanings every 3-4 months to kill any present bacteria
- Laser deep cleaning every 24 months
Worried your insurance won’t cover your more-frequent treatment? We’ve created a special Perio plan in our in-house Membership Club that includes 3 maintenance cleanings a year, cancer screenings, fluoride, x-rays, emergency exams, and a discount on all other services.
