PERIODONTAL DENTISTRY - Periodontal Maintenance
The dentists at Barrington Dental Care™ want to keep your periodontal disease under control with proper treatment. Periodontal maintenance is very important to perform on a regular basis. Brushing and cleaning regularly is of utmost importance, but that is only the beginning. You must have regular deeper cleanings at the Barrington Dental Care™ office. We're here to help.
The deep cleaning removes plaque, the sticky film that forms over your teeth, as well as rough-surfaced tartar, which forms when plaque stays on your teeth for too long. Tartar must be removed at the dental office. Additionally, pockets may form between the teeth and gums as a result of periodontal disease and can trap plaque and tartar. With regular cleanings, we can shrink those pockets to make your gums healthier.
With regular periodontal maintenance and office cleanings, the barrington dentists will help you keep your teeth and your beautiful smile.
The best advice for your overall dental health includes:
- Brushing twice a day
- Flossing at least once a day
- Maintaining a healthy diet
- Quitting smoking
- Regularly visiting your dentist
