Kelsey Periodontial Maintenance

After you have been treated by your dentist or periodontist for periodontal disease, you should be evaluated by a dental health professional on a more frequent basis. These appointments are called periodontal maintenance visits, and they are different from your yearly recall appointment with your general dentist.

Periodontal maintenance includes a thorough examination of your gums and pockets around your teeth. Also, the teeth cleaning associated with the periodontal maintenance appointment is a more meticulous one, as the dental health professional is trying to prevent future disease from occurring.

Periodontal maintenance is performed anywhere from two to four times per year, depending on what your dentist or periodontist believes is best to prevent problems from arising again. Please call the Kelsey Periodontal Group at 402-934-4745 if you would like to be placed on a periodontal maintenance program.
