Periodontal Maintenance


Periodontal Maintenance
A periodontal maintenance procedure (PMP) is defined as a procedure that is recommended following periodontal treatment (such as scaling and root planing) and continues at varying intervals, determined by the clinical evaluation of the dentist.

These intervals can be as frequent as every two months and they can be extended as long as six months, depending on the patient. Keeping up your PMP interval is important because once you have periodontal disease you are at risk for flare-ups the rest of your life.

PMP includes removal of plaque and tartar above and below the gums, scaling and root planing of specific areas, and polishing. PMP is always completed following active periodontal treatment such as scaling and root planing or more extensive gum surgery. Even with regular PMP additional scaling and root planing may be needed for recurrence of active periodontal infection. Following the recommended interval is the best way to limit infection and provide early intervention when there is a flare-up of the infection.
