Results post SRP

I’m getting frustrated with my SRP results. When I SRP I use the Cavitron and then graceys. I seem to get decent results, no BOP and pocket improvement. However when I see them for a perio maint. there is moderate bleeding with scaling. What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions?

If you have decent results directly after treatment, but then when they return in 3-4 months they show active infection, it’s most likely a homecare issue on the patient’s part, not any thing you did wrong during treatment. You could always analyze what you say as far as homecare and maybe make some tweaks, but some patients no matter what you say, just don’t care much about their oral health.
