Supportive Maintenance Therapy
Personalised dental hygiene therapy plans
Your supportive maintenance therapy appointment will be scheduled for 8 weeks after your periodontal treatment, which is the ideal time to reassess the depth of your pockets, update your pocket chart and have a full mouth clean to remove plaque, calculus (tartar) and stains.
At this appointment we'll go over your personal maintenance plan, including ways to make sure you stick with it, as poor patient compliance is the number one cause for repeated treatments.
We'll then assess your oral health, the success of treatment and, if there are more serious issues to be addressed then we'll make a referral to a specialist periodontist.
