The Importance of your Periodontal Maintenance following Gum Disease

We get questions about periodontal maintenance cleanings all the time.  See some of the information we give our patients on their visit following their deep cleaning with us.

How does my tooth crack?

We see a lot of patients with little craze lines in a tooth.  If left untreated the lines can turn into a larger crack and cause a good amount of discomfort when chewing and ultimately frank pain.  In many times it can cause catastrophic failure of a tooth requiring extraction and replacement with a dental implant or a dental bridge.
