Maintaining Oral Health After Periodontal Treatment in Reno

Maintaining Oral Health After Periodontal Treatment in Reno

Posted April 3, 2012 by Wager-Evans Dental

At Wager Evans Dental, Reno dentists Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans strive to help our patients achieve optimal oral health and, often, that requires treatment for periodontal (gum) disease. In addition to traditional dental cleanings, we offer Perio Protect and deep cleanings, as well as other treatments to help our patients overcome this serious oral health problem.

Post-Periodontal Treatment

Dr. Wager, Dr. Evans, and our team will not rest until your teeth and gums are back in optimal health, but what happens at the completion of your treatment? Generally, periodontal patients require more care than just regular biannual dental cleanings and checkups to maintain a healthy smile.

Often, this post-periodontal treatment includes professional dental checkups and cleanings as frequently as every two to three months depending on your needs, an advanced at-home dental hygiene routine, and occasional deep cleanings as needed. Because some people are genetically prone to gum disease—or have a heightened risk due to other health conditions, hormone levels, and other factors—Dr. Wager and Dr. Evans will want to keep an eye on your dental health as much as possible. To ensure that you receive the dental care you need and deserve to live a healthy, high-quality life, we ask that you take our suggestions to heart and that you maintain the suggested appointment schedule.
