Periodontal disease occurs in the presence of pathogenic bacteria in a susceptible host. The overall objectives of periodontal therapy are to halt disease progression, reduce pocket depths and, ideally, obtain clinical attachment gains. Following active periodontal therapy, periodontal maintenance comprising both in-office and meticulous home care is key for long-term positive clinical outcomes. Consideration should be given to techniques and protocols that aid patient compliance, as well as to address root caries risk and prevent unwanted sequelae.
