If you have developed periodontal disease, we encourage you to visit us for treatment and maintenance to prevent your condition from reaching an advanced stage. McQuiston Dental offers periodontal maintenance treatments to help you manage gum disease and keep the levels of bacteria in your mouth down.

Signs of periodontal disease include tender, swollen, and red gums. These symptoms should be seen by a dentist as soon as possible, as periodontal disease is progressive and will only become worse if not treated.

While periodontal disease is not curable, we can help you keep it under control and protect your smile. Regular visits to our dentist, combined with thorough oral hygiene routines at home, can prevent the return of periodontal disease to your mouth and help you continue to enjoy good oral health. During visits to our office, we may perform deep cleanings to remove plaque and tartar above and below the gum line to prevent your condition from worsening. We recommend a periodontal visit at least every 3 months, as bacteria can begin to flourish within 3 to 12 weeks if not removed.

We welcome you to contact our office at 703-354-0111 to learn more about periodontal maintenance in Alexandria, Virginia, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Scott.
