The initial consultation appointment is your first appointment with the Specialist Periodontist.
He/She will begin by taking a detailed history of your lifestyle, diet, medical history, oral hygiene and dental history. If you feel there is any relevant information on your current health status please discuss this with your Specialist so they are aware, as this may be relevant to your oral health.
A thorough oral examination will be carried out where recordings, measurements of the gum pockets, photographs and X-rays will be taken to measure gum and bone levels. An additional OPG radiograph ( an X-ray of both the jaws and surrounding structures) may also be needed in order to assess the pattern and extent of bone loss.
At the end of this appointment the Specialist will have a better understanding of the extent and severity of the disease and you will receive a detailed treatment plan with supplementary consent forms. The Specialist will go through the prognosis, treatment options and costings with you and answer any questions you may have.
