A periodontal exam is an evaluation of the health of your gums and supporting structures. It involves measuring the depth of gum pockets, assessing gum inflammation, and checking for signs of gum disease. This exam is crucial in identifying the early stages of gum disease and determining the appropriate treatment to prevent further damage to your oral health.
The frequency of periodontal exams depends on your oral health condition and risk factors for gum disease. Typically, individuals with healthy gums should have a periodontal exam once a year during their regular dental checkups. However, if you have a history of gum disease or other risk factors, more frequent exams may be necessary.
During a periodontal exam, our dental professionals use a small probe to measure the depth of gum pockets. While this procedure may cause slight discomfort or sensitivity, it is generally well tolerated by patients. Our team takes every measure to ensure your comfort throughout the exam.
If gum disease is detected during a periodontal exam, our dental professionals will develop a personalized treatment plan to address the condition. This may include procedures such as scaling and root planing, antibiotic therapy, or surgical interventions if necessary.
Yes, maintaining proper oral hygiene practices is essential to preventing gum disease. Regular brushing and flossing, along with routine dental checkups and professional cleanings, can help remove plaque and tartar buildup and reduce the risk of gum disease.
