Periodontics dental services include regular follow-up visits for periodontal maintenance. These visits involve monitoring the health of the gums, evaluating pocket depths, performing professional cleanings, and providing guidance on proper oral hygiene practices. Regular maintenance is essential for long-term gum health and to prevent disease recurrence.
Periodontists often collaborate with general dentists and other dental specialists to ensure comprehensive treatment for patients. They work together with orthodontists, prosthodontists, oral surgeons, and other specialists to develop coordinated treatment plans that address both periodontal needs and overall dental health.
