Periodontal Maintenance in Dallas
Expert oral care after treatment – keeping your teeth and gums healthy
Once your treatment is completed, our experienced hygienists will ensure your oral health is maintained with thorough cleanings and home oral care education.
Gum disease is persistent and can return easily after treatment if follow-up oral care is not adequate. It takes continuous removal of the bacteria that accumulate on the teeth to prevent the further development of the plaque and calculus that cause gum disease.
The doctor will tailor your frequency of cleaning appointments according to your individual needs. He will give our hygienists any special instructions needed to ensure your care covers all concerns.
Gentle, thorough cleanings
Our excellent hygienists have over 25 years of experience providing comfortable, thorough cleanings. They use ultrasonic scalers and hand instruments to thoroughly remove plaque and calculus from your teeth.
After the bacterial plaque is removed and the surfaces of the teeth are smoothed, they use a dental jet-spray device called a prophy jet for final cleaning and polishing. The prophy jet shoots a high-pressure sodium bicarbonate stream that removes the stains from coffee, smoking and other hard-to-clean elements that are not able to be removed with other instruments.
Home oral care education
Our hygienists use educational videos and other materials to teach you good oral care practices so you can keep your teeth and gums in healthy condition.
They will also recommend the home oral care tools that you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy and will train you how to brush properly and floss for best results.
Periodontal Maintenance Frequently Asked Questions Read Reviews From Our Happy Patients!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Ovadia and the Periodontal Associates. The staff was great and very accommodating with scheduling; I liked the convenience of filling out paper work and emailing it to the office before my appointment. As a general dentist myself, I can speak very highly of Dr. Ovadia's kindness and quality of work after being a patient. I am extremely happy with the results of my gum surgery, and feel great knowing that I can send patients, friends, family, and colleagues to this office!
Dr. Ovadia cured my gum issues that two other periodontists had failed to eradicate. More importantly, it was done with great care and concern for my long term well being.
Doctor Ovadia introduced himself to me in a very personal way and not just treating me as a new "client", rather as a patient that deserved his time. He is super friendly, relaxed and gives a feeling that you are in good hands, like the rest of his practice. From the moment I walked in, everyone seemed to be attentive and happy about their work. I was starting to have gum recession and this was causing huge discomfort when eating anything cold or hot. He explained to me very carefully on options available to stop the problem and make me comfortable again...after thinking it a bit and doing further research, I went for it. Doctor Ovadia performed the surgery with excellent results and I couldn't be any happier or more comfortable now. He is very cautious and light in his touch so to do his work in the most effective and least pain-causing way possible. I recommend him and his practice for any dental needs. I will not be looking anywhere else for any dental needs again.
