Have you recently eradicated gingivitis or periodontal disease from your mouth and gums?

If so, then you are feeling good about your mouth and gums. Your teeth have no plaque and tartar and you won’t need to visit your dentist again for another year, right?


Many patients are not aware that periodontal maintenance is the only sure way to keep gum disease from returning. Periodontal maintenance is regularly performed at certain intervals after procedures such as scaling and root planing. Periodontal maintenance includes the removal of plaque and tartar, scaling and tooth planing and polishing. Dr. Ouellet will determine the frequency the periodontal maintenance is needed.

Additionally, there are things you can do between visits.  One is what's call Perio-Trays, a tray formed to your specific mouth and teeth, which holds medicament for a more extended period of time, rather than the quick, 3 minute brushing!

We will typically mention Perio-Trays to you when we see the need.  If you think you'd like to 'up your game' against periodontal disease, let us know you are interested in Perio Trays!
