When gum disease is left untreated, it can turn into an infection called periodontal disease. At Rhome Family Dentistry, Dr. Saad may recommend that patients with severe periodontal disease receive regular periodontal maintenance treatments to halt the infection and restore some of your oral health. These visits typically are every three months. For more information about periodontal maintenance in Rhome, Texas, we invite you to schedule an appointment with our dentist by calling our office at 817-636-0608.
