or Periodontal Cleanings, are continued periodontal therapy. Periodontal (Gum)
Disease is a chronic problem, much like diabetes, and must be controlled through
regular periodontal cleanings (even though you may have had periodontal surgery
or non-surgical treatment). The schedule will vary from case to case, but
typically periodontal cleanings are required on a more frequent basis than
the six month interval often recommended for patients with healthy gums. The
interval between cleanings that's right for you will be determined by Dr. Pierre following your initial periodontal treatments.
