The foundation of a healthy smile

Periodontal examination

During the consultation appointment, the following steps will be completed:

  • • Complete periodontal examination - this includes measuring the pocket depth
  • • Evaluation of the risk factors
  • • Prescribe the relevant radiographs
  • • Establish a treatment plan and cost estimate

A precise diagnosis is necessary in order to elaborate a treatment plan with predictable and long term results. If required, the radiographs necessary for a complete evaluation will be recommended and used to complement those taken by your dentist.

After the exam, a detailed written report and a copy of the radiographs will be sent to your dentist.
