Once gingivitis has progressed into periodontal disease, it is not reversible. However, the effects of periodontal disease can be maintained, thus preventing it from spreading and developing further. If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, Dr. Eric Dunn provides routine periodontal maintenance treatments to help keep your gums clean of bacteria and plaque. These treatments occur about once every three months, and when combined with good dental care at home, you can keep the rest of your mouth healthy. If you would like to learn more about how you can receive periodontal maintenance in Oxford, Ohio, we invite you to contact Willow Creek Family Dentistry at 513-523-7541 and schedule a consultation with our dentist today.
