People who are among the estimated millions who have gum disease require care above and beyond general exams and basic cleanings. This is because gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an extremely aggressive condition that can rapidly cause problems related to the teeth, bones, and soft tissues of the mouth.
Regular periodontal maintenance appointments are typically arranged for those with gum disease. These appointments are scheduled every three to four months, rather than every six months. This allows your periodontist in Waco, TX, Dr. J. Scott Jones, to make sure any issues are addressed before they get bigger. With routine periodontal maintenance, you can avoid long-term problems related to gum disease, including gum recession, heightened tooth sensitivity, loose teeth, bone loss, and tooth loss.
If you are new to periodontal maintenance, we would be happy to explain your options. Just call our office in Waco at 254.776.6350.
I have been a patient of Dr Jones for 28 years. DR Jones and his staff are great. They explain all procedure options thoroughly and follow up after any procedure to make sure their patients are doing OK. My husband is now also a patient of Dr Jones. I tell everyone who tells me that they may need to see a periodontist, have their general dentist to get them in to see Dr Jones."— Denise Hegefed
