Non-Surgical Periodontics

Lakeshore Dental Specialists

Non-surgical periodontics is a therapy that removes and possibly eliminates plaque that hardens in your mouth.

Known as tartar, the plaque causes inflammation and can lead to serious oral health problems and more intensive treatments if not treated early. That is why periodontal maintenance is recommended to maintain good oral health and keep your bone and gums in a healthy state. For patients with advanced disease, three-month maintenance appointments may be required.

Maintaining good oral health

It is up to you, in partnership with our periodontal team, to maintain good periodontal health. There are several things you can do to decrease your risk of periodontitis.

if you are a smoker, you should quit smoking. Studies show smoking increases your chance of losing teeth by 700%! Smoking has a negative impact in your mouth and throughout your body. Quitting your smoking habit can restore your healing capabilities and help when you undergo oral surgery such as dental implants.

Any diabetic patient is more susceptible to periodontitis depending on the level of blood sugar. Avoid sweets and other sugary foods as much as you can.

This means brushing your teeth for two minutes, twice a day, and flossing every day. Keep in mind there are several places in your mouth that a toothbrush cannot reach easily. And many people do not floss as often as they should. Periodontitis begins between the teeth in areas that a toothbrush cannot reach. Flossing and cleaning between your teeth will help keep your gums healthy and keep plaque under control.

it is important to maintain your regular visits as determined by your dentist. Patients with advanced disease should be seen every three months. We are here to help you reach your goal of healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime.
