The periodontal examination is part of the comprehensive examination process and will help in the treatment planning for your individual situation. It's a critical decision point for retaining or replacing teeth.
What to Expect
During your comprehensive and routine examinations, periodontal probings and possible radiographs will be taken to asses the health of the bone and gum tissue that supports your teeth. These items will be a part of your ongoing treatment planning.
