Things to know before receiving periodontal therapy
Periodontal therapy is needed when you have periodontal disease such as gingivitis or periodontitis. These can be dangerous diseases and should be treated as soon as possible.
After your oral exam, if it is determined that you need periodontal therapy, the Smiles by Morel Plano, TX staff will treat you depending on what periodontal disease you have. Then you will leave with guidelines on how to avoid getting this disease in the future.
Be sure to tell the dentist about any areas of sensitivity so that it is easier for treatment. Ask any questions to clarify your condition and how you can help it.
