Frequently Asked Questions
Our doctors are specialists in periodontics and implantology. They can perform a variety of procedures, including dental implant placement, cosmetic periodontal surgery, gum grafting, crown lengthening, and bone grafting.
We understand that many patients have fears about going to the dentist and may postpone or neglect treatment. We offer IV sedation as an additional service to our patients. Sedation dentistry can be very effective for relieving many dental fears.
We will need to take digital x-rays to evaluate the current state of your periodontal health. If you have had x-rays taken recently by a referring dentist, please bring those with you.
Every patient is different so your fees for treatment will depend on the type of problems we are addressing and the complexity of your treatment plan. We will go over estimated costs during your consultation.
Many dental insurance companies will cover some or all of the costs of periodontal treatment. Talk to one of our insurance coordinators to determine what coverage you have and what your out-of-pocket expenses may be, if any.
We will be working closely with your general dentist to ensure you are getting the comprehensive care you need. If you end up needing general dentistry procedures such as crowns or fillings, your regular dentist will provide them. Visiting your dentist regularly is also an important part of your periodontal maintenance plan.
Periodontal disease is a progressive disease and the infection can spread to the jawbone where it causes irreversible bone damage. You may also end up losing your natural teeth. Early treatment is critical to maintaining optimal oral health.
