How your periodontist treats your gum disease is largely dependent upon the stage of your infection and the amount of deterioration involving your gums, teeth, supporting tissues, and bone.
After reviewing your Digital X-rays and performing a thorough periodontal exam, your periodontist will discuss your treatment options, answer questions, and explain what happens:
- During and after the procedure(s)
- The number of office visits required for treatment
- What to do post-treatment as your gums heal
- ow to keep gum disease under control after treatment is complete
