How long will I have to have maintenance appointments at Perio Care?

Posted in Dental Implants, FAQs, News and Updates, Periodontal Therapy on .

Your dentist has referred you to Perio Care for a particular periodontal problem or for implant care.  Our ultimate aim is to return you to your referring dentist as soon as your specific or general condition is healthy and stable.

Sometimes achieving true sustainable gum/implant health is initially difficult for some patients so ongoing maintenance appointments are required until ‘stability’ is achieved.  These appointments may be anywhere from 2 to 12 months apart.

Maintenance care may be exclusively undertaken at Perio Care or there may be a ‘shared’ approach where you see both your dentist and the team at Perio Care until everything is healthy.

Remember, it’s the combination of consistent effective home care and the correct interval of professional maintenance that enables patients to reach and keep optimal oral health!
