A periodontal examination is the examination of the health of a patient's gum tissues. This examination can aid in the diagnosis of gum disease, exposed roots, gingivitis, periodontitis, and other dental issues not normally seen in a normal exam.
Our friendly dental team strive to ensure your comfort and confidence is maintained throughout the examination and that each tooth is examined individually. If there is a problem, it will be found and further appointments will be made at your nearest convenience to remedy it.
We will check for any abnormal areas or lumps in the mouth, how much plaque is on your teeth, the depth of space between your gum and tooth, and the colour, size and texture of your hums.
This exam is designed to prevent the growth of cavities and other oral health issues, as well as identify ones already there.
