Let Us Give You Professional Work

During the first visit, we usually review the patient’s complete medical and dental histories. Next examine the gums and check to see if there is any gum line recession. Also, assess how the teeth fit together when biting and check the teeth to see if any are loose.

We will also take a small measuring instrument called a probe and place it between the teeth and gums to determine the depth of those spaces, known as periodontal pockets; this helps us assess the health of the gums. X-rays may also be taken to observe the health of the bone below the gum line.
