Your first visit lasts between 1.5-2.0 hours and consists of a comprehensive periodontal examination, radiographs (x-rays) and a discussion with you, so that you understand what steps will be necessary to restore your mouth to a healthy state. We will provide you with a personalized treatment plan and options available to you, pros and cons of each treatment option, a breakdown of all the estimated fees, and as a courtesy to you we will submit this to your insurance company for pre-authorization.
Good oral health is an important factor in achieving a healthier lifestyle, especially in adults. Eating a balanced diet, brushing and flossing daily as well as regular dental checkups are vital in preventing periodontal disease and maintaining your overall health.
Research has indicated possible links between the bacteria causing gum disease and systemic diseases like cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and pre-term birth; therefore, visiting your dentist regularly is imperative.
In addition to examining and cleaning your teeth, your dentist will screen you for oral cancer, which generally occurs in people ages 45 and older.
Having a healthy smile as you get older just isn't for aesthetic reasons. It keeps you on the road to optimum oral health.
