Localized SRP followed by D1110 or D4910?

I just read recently that some offices are doing loc SRP then D1110 the rest of the mouth. Our office goes to perio maintenance after loc SRP. I thought this was the correct way to do it since there is disease in the mouth. Anyone else does it this way & if so where can I find material that supports it so I can show my office? Thank you

According to “Periodontal Treatment Protocol (PTP) for the General Dental Practice,” published in the Journal of Dental Hygiene, “In general, data suggests that patients who have undergone definitive therapy for either localized or generalized periodontitis should be managed by periodontal maintenance…” This is from page 5 from http://jdh.adha.org/content/82/suppl_2/16.full.pdf
When I read your question, many questions of my own came to mind… who wrote what you read? Was it a valid resource? Does the author have research or reasoning for this suggestion? Just because some offices are doing something one way, doesn’t necessarily make it the “right” or most appropriate way of doing it. Just my two cents!
