Expert Periodontal Maintenance at Palmetto Periodontics

At Palmetto Periodontics, located in Columbia, SC, we specialize in comprehensive periodontal maintenance programs designed to preserve the health of your gums and teeth. Our proactive approach helps prevent the progression of gum disease and maintains the results of periodontal treatments.

Understanding Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance is an ongoing treatment plan aimed at preventing the recurrence of periodontal disease in patients who have undergone treatments for conditions such as gingivitis or periodontitis. This regimen is more intensive than a standard dental cleaning and is customized to meet the specific needs of patients at risk for periodontal disease.

Benefits of Periodontal Maintenance

  • Disease Prevention: Regular maintenance stops periodontal disease from advancing and can prevent new infections.
  • Tooth Stability: Helps maintain the natural teeth by controlling the infection and inflammation that lead to tooth loss.
  • Aesthetic Improvement: Keeps your smile looking its best by managing gum health and appearance.
  • Overall Health Enhancement: Reduces risks associated with periodontal disease, such as heart disease and diabetes.
