Q:I had gum surgery prior to moving. How soon do I need to find a new dentist?

A:ASAP. Once periodontal treatment has been completed, I recommend that you have regular maintenance cleanings (periodontal cleanings), usually four times a year. At these cleaning appointments, the pocket depths will be carefully checked to ensure that they are healthy. Plaque and calculus that is difficult for you to remove on a daily basis will be removed from above and below the gum line.
