To ensure the health of your gums and teeth, we perform several exams that will tell us a lot of information about the health of your teeth, gums and mouth. The first evaluation is of the gums by the dental hygienist.
Periodontal Screening and Evaluations are generally done at every routine check up and cleaning you go in for. At your appointment, the hygienist checks your gums to determine if you have, or are at risk of having, periodontal disease.
At each appointment we will discuss with you the health of your mouth to ensure proper measures are being taken to protect your health. If you have questions about Periodontal Screening and Evaluations, please call us at 713-523-6848.
