We Use Advanced Technology to Provide the Best Care
When infections and bacteria damage the deep tissues supporting your teeth, periodontic treatments can help. The periodontic specialists at North Orange County DSC use the most advanced technology to detect problems sooner and remove decay completely. We use dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to get an in-depth look at these structures supporting your teeth, so we can detect early signs and symptoms of infection and damage. This x-ray imaging technology gives us a 3-dimensional image of your teeth, gums, nerves, bones, and other structures, so we can create the best treatment plan.
What Can I Expect During My Initial Perio Appointment?
At your appointment, your periodontist will carefully inspect your teeth and gums. First, they will examine the gum line to check for recession, which can indicate gingivitis or periodontitis. Your periodontist will also check the alignment of your teeth and see if any of your teeth are loose. They will also assess your gum health by checking the periodontal pockets between your teeth and gums. Deep periodontal pockets indicate gingivitis, while narrow pockets indicate healthy gums. The periodontist may also take x-rays to assess the health of structures that aren’t visible.
