HYGIENE MAINTENANCE

Keep your mouth clean and free of any disease

WHAT IS ORAL HYGIENE?

One of the most common procedures.

Oral Hygiene is a set of steps you regularly take to keep your mouth clean and free of any disease. It includes but not limited to brushing your teeth, cleaning your tong, flossing several times a day and visiting your dentist/ hygienist regularly.

PERIODONTAL MAINTENANCE

What is Periodontal Maintenance?

If your hygienist and/or dentist determine that you have periodontal disease or inflammation (gingivitis) underneath your gums, you will be recommended to follow regular gum therapy such as Scaling and Root Planning with so called “periodontal maintenance”. Such “cleaning” should be done every three to four months to fight bacteria and to control the inflammation.
The cleaning experience is very similar to a Prophylaxis, but with shorter intervals of time. Active bacteria grows every ninety days and it cannot be 100% removed; however, it could be controlled by Perio- Maintenance every 3 months.
