After you have received treatment for gum disease, Dr. Lynna Bui will recommend a course of periodontal maintenance treatments to help keep your mouth free from harmful bacteria and prevent your gum disease from returning.  For more information about periodontal maintenance in San Jose, California, and to make your appointment with our periodontist, call AZ Dental at 408-227-6000.

It only takes 24 hours for plaque to turn into calculus on your teeth.  While daily home cleanings help control plaque and tartar formation, you may also require specialized treatments to help your mouth stay healthy.  Following your gum disease treatment, our dentists and hygienists will recommend regular maintenance appointments at our practice.  These treatments are usually provided 4 times each year, though we may recommend more frequent treatment if needed.

During your periodontal maintenance treatment, our periodontist will carefully check your teeth and gums, including the depths of your periodontal pockets, to ensure that they remain free from harmful bacteria.  Your appointment will usually include:

  • A thorough examination
  • X-rays
  • An examination of any existing restorations
  • A check for tooth decay
  • An oral cancer screening
  • Teeth polishing
  • Oral hygiene recommendations

We invite you to call our office to schedule your appointment for periodontal maintenance.
