Compromised maintenance

  1. If correction of contributory factors cannot be completed by the time you reevaluate initial theraphy (4 - 6 weeks following S/RP), place the patient in compromised maintenance phase and reevaluate again when contributory factors have been controlled.
  2. A patient assigned to compromised maintenance should be seen for periodontal maintenance every three months.
  3. If control of contibutory factors requires phase II treatment (crown and bridge), schedule a consult with the appropirate faculty.
  4. Phase II treatment (Crown and bridge or RPD, etc) is usually not initiated until the periodontium is completely healthy.
