When you visit Hatfield Cosmetic & Family Dentist for periodontal maintenance in Greer, South Carolina, your treatment will consist of cleaning your teeth by scaling and polishing them, thus helping you to maintain the level of health your gums need to improve. As part of this treatment, Dr. LeeAnn Hatfield often recommends rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash containing chlorhexidine, which is great for reducing the bacteria in your mouth. Over the years, our dentist has found that the biggest cause of developing gum disease is improper hygiene habits. Because of this, we will take the time to review proper brushing and flossing techniques that can help you maintain the best oral and overall health possible. We invite you to call us at 864-968-8811 to arrange a consultation with us soon.
