Periodontal Maintenance Procedures follow active Periodontal therapy. Afterward, an interval is established for periodic ongoing care. This care is under the supervision of the periodontist and includes an update of the medical history, an evaluation of the periodontal status, removal of bacterial plaque from crevicular and pocket areas, scaling and root planing where indicated, polishing, and review of the patient's plaque control efficiency. The time of the interval will vary, depending on the clinical judgment of Dr Mao or the hygienist..
