Have You Fallen into a Perio Maintenance Trap?


The term “Prophy Trap” is a relatively common term for practices that are struggling with diagnosing and recommending perio therapy to their patients. One of the ways you know you are in this type of trap is when you find yourself constantly doing bloody and challenging prophies and running behind much of the day. This looks and feels much like a hamster running vigorously in the wheel but getting nowhere. The patient needs more than just a prophy! So why, if you and your team are doing a great job with perio recommendations to your prophy patients, would there be a possible issue with being caught in a “Perio Maintenance Trap”?

It is often uncovered with our private coaching clients, that even if they have a healthy perio percentage, a significant amount of that percentage is heavily weighted by Perio Maintenance and very few quads of active therapy. Watch my short video to help you identify if you are in this trap and how to avoid getting caught in one altogether!

The Power of Perio Maintenance


As our patient’s health care providers, we KNOW the importance of never letting insurance companies influence our diagnosis and treatment recommendations based on reimbursement. But many of us have fallen victims of this very thing. Sometimes what we think is helping the patient and the practice can have big consequences and outcomes.

This is exactly where the team of Sterling Dental in Massachusetts found themselves. Like many practices, they were sometimes alternating perio maintenance with adult prophies trying to “maximize” the patient’s insurance benefits. During private coaching together we were able to re-establish the Power of Perio Maintenance, not only for the patients’ health but the practice health as well. In the table below, it is easy to see how providing the right service to match the disease positively impacted everyone in just six short months!
