As previously said, periodontal disease is often not diagnosed and not treated. How do we diagnose for periodontal disease. In the initial stage you have to come for a comprehensive evaluation. A full mouth examination with in depth soft tissue evaluation will take place.
– periodontal charting
-measuring of the pockets depth
-assessment of bone loss on x-rays, opg (orthopantomogram)
-evaluating boneloss either through existing x-rays or we will take some.
-assessment of risk factors, old crowns, fillings,
– assessment of soft tissue, tongue and cheeks,
– assessment of your bite, occlusal analysis.
Once we have all the results and are able give you a better idea of you periodontal status we set up a treatment plan.
