Periodontal Maintenance can be defined as thorough teeth cleaning procedure that helps halt the progression of periodontal diseases. Periodontal or gum diseases primarily occur when bacteria from plaque colonize in your gum tissues. They can be present either above or below the gum line. The bacteria cause serious inflammation, tenderness, and if not treated on time, they can eventually destroy your jawbones, causing tooth loss. The plaque is a thin white film deposited on your tooth and gum line every day. It can be easily removed by brushing and flossing. But when oral hygiene is not maintained properly, the plaque hardens to form tartar, leading to the creation of gum pockets. With time the pockets become deeper and the home to several bacteria, which might travel throughout your bloodstream and reach different body parts. The infections are even capable of causing heart attacks.
