D4910 PERIODONTAL MAINTENANCE

This procedure is instituted following periodontal therapy and continues at varying intervals, determined by the clinical evaluation of the dentist, for the life of the dentition or any implant replacements.

If new or recurring periodontal disease appears, additional diagnostic and treatment procedures must be considered.
