Periodontal Maintenance Promotes Long-lasting Results

It is important to understand how quickly plaque that is not removed from your teeth can turn into hard tartar. Unfortunately, it only takes just twenty four hours for tartar to form, which is why twice-daily brushing is so important.

Periodontal maintenance care following corrective treatments may include returning to Dr. Molinar every 3-4 months for checkups and periodontal cleaning to make certain that the disease is being held in check and no further problems are developing. Dr. Molinar may utilize the following to ensure treatment has been successful:

  • Digital x-rays
  • Hygiene effectiveness and recommendations
  • visual examination
  • Calculus removal and polishing
