UNDERSTANDING PERIODONTAL TREATMENT
We specialize in providing our patients with great periodonal treatment. This specialization of dentistry deals with the tissues and structures that surround your teeth. Treatment options such as periodontal scaling can counteract gum infection and restore your oral health. We work with each patient to find the right solution to their periodontal health concerns, and we can help you combat gum disease, too.
What to Expect When You Visit the Periodontist
The first step to identifying and treating gum disease is to schedule a periodontic examination. We specialize in performing such exams at our office, but if you are unsure of what to expect, you may be reasonably nervous. The examination is quite straightforward, and will entail:
- Measurements taken of the depth of the pocket beside each tooth
- Assessment and measurement of any recession that has occurred
- Check for inflammation or loose teeth throughout your mouth
- Examine throughout the mouth for any signs of infection
