Yet many of those individuals have never been to a periodontist for periodontal maintenance. Instead, they only commit to their regular six-month dental appointments. That is simply not enough to contain and control periodontal disease.

Gum disease requires consistent periodontal maintenance every four to six months over and above your regular dental exams. At your periodontal maintenance appointments, your hygienist will conduct deep dental cleaning treatments. These treatments are comfortable and efficient, as well as effective. The goal of periodontal maintenance is to stop the spread of the bacteria that cause gum disease.

Do I Need Periodontal Maintenance? Find out more by calling us at (702) 984-2577 to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Curry Leavitt.

Patients who need periodontal maintenance have the common condition called “gum disease” or “periodontal disease.” If you have already been diagnosed by a dentist or periodontist with gum disease, you are a candidate for periodontal maintenance appointments.

On the other hand, if you experience any of these common gum disease signs, you should contact us at (702) 834-8900 for a thorough examination to determine if gum disease is the problem:

  • Red, swollen gums
  • Gums that bleed when you eat or brush
  • Gums that hurt
  • Gums that have receded
  • Bad breath (halitosis) or strange smells coming from the mouth
  • Loose teeth
  • Pus coming from between the tooth and gums
  • Rapidly decaying teeth

The Obvious and Not-So-Obvious Problems With Missing Teeth

Estimates place the number of Americans over the age 30 with at least one missing tooth in the millions. Yet not everyone seems concerned by this fact. What they might not realize is that having at least one missing tooth is a risky proposition. If you do not seek to replace your missing tooth, you could find yourself dealing with:

  • Progressive gum disease
  • Other teeth falling out or requiring extraction
  • Movement/shifting of adjacent teeth
  • Problems with your bite patterns
  • Difficulty speaking and/or eating
  • Worries about your appearance
