Call us today!
We request the following information:
Your referral slip and any x-rays from your referring dentist.
A list of medications you are currently taking
If you have dental insurance, please bring any forms or insurance cards with you.
Please notify the office if you have a medical condition or concerns (e.g. artificial heart valves or joints, heart murmurs requiring pre-medication, severe diabetes, or hypertension).
We will complete an in-depth medical and dental health history and a thorough examination to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, oral cancer screening, TMJ, and other signs of periodontal disease.
Will It Hurt?
The periodontal exam can be completed with little or no discomfort.
Do I Need X-Rays?
We will need current periodontal x-rays in order to diagnose disease and bone loss. If your referring dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they be forwarded to us.
What Will It Cost?
The initial examination fee is approximately $165 plus any x-rays taken. An approximate treatment plan cost is usually determined and reviewed with you at the initial visit. Our philosophy of practice is to treat as conservatively as possible to attain treatment goals
Will My Insurance Cover The Cost?
Dental insurance policies often cover periodontal treatment. Please bring all dental benefit information and cards to your examination appointment. Upon request, we will submit a claim to predetermine your insurance benefits.
Will I Need Surgery?
Not everyone needs periodontal surgery. If treated early, gum disease can be controlled without surgery. We will make recommendations based on your individual situation.
Can My Teeth Be Saved?
The recent advances in periodontal treatment allow us to successfully treat most teeth.
When Will I Go Back To My General Dentist?
Our office and your dentist will work closely together. If crowns and fillings are needed your dentist will provide them. Regular visits to your dentist are an important part of periodontal maintenance.
What If I Don’t Have Gum Treatment?
Periodontal disease is a progressive, painless infection. Delaying treatment can cause further bone loss, more expense and the risk for tooth loss may also increase.
