Plaque not removed from your teeth can turn into tarter in only 24 hours, a contributing factor of periodontal disease. In addition to regular visits with Dr. George Eifler and our dental hygienist, we highly encourage our patients to engage in effective dental care at home. This is the best way to help control tarter and plaque from forming on your teeth. Twice a year cleanings in our office will allow us to get at those “hard to reach areas” that need special attention.
After treating you for periodontal disease, Dr. Eifler and our and dental hygienist will certainly recommend regular periodontal cleanings up to 4x per year. We will check pocket depths carefully to ensure that they are regaining or maintaining their health. The reasons for cleaning four times per year is calculus and plaque are difficult for patients to remove. In our office we can then ensure those affected areas are removed from below and above the gum line.
Your periodontal cleanings may also include the following:
To reduce the odds of having periodontal disease or other dental problems good at-home dental hygiene is recommended. If you encounter periodontal disease good home dental hygiene becomes essential.
