Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation

This procedure is indicated for patients with a history of periodontal disease, showing signs or symptoms of periodontal disease, and for patients with risk factors such as smoking or diabetes.  Periodontal disease is an often undiagnosed bacterial infection of the gum tissue and supporting bone that is the #1 reason for tooth loss in America today.

During this examination I will complete all the aspects of the comprehensive oral evaluation with additional attention spent on discovering the presence of periodontal disease.  Following a proper diagnosis of the presence and magnitude of periodontal disease I will develop an aggressive plan to treat and hopefully arrest the progression of this destructive disease process.
