About Periodontal Exams

Periodontal disease is a common gum inflammation that affects almost 75% of the population and if it is not diagnosed and properly treated, patients can experience serious repercussions. Cosmetic and general dentist, Dr. Victoria Veytsman, offers her patients state-of-the-art periodontal examinations at her office in Midtown East Manhattan during every patient's dental examination to help detect and treat gum disease. When caught early, periodontal disease has many nonsurgical treatment options (root planing and scaling) and more advanced cases may require dental surgery or tooth extraction. During their consultation and dental exam, patients can talk to Dr. Veytsman about the signs of gum disease and ways the patient can minimize their risk of periodontal diseases with good home oral care.

What to Expect

Periodontal disease affects 75% of adults and can range from mild to severe. At her Manhattan office, Dr. Veytsman offers a wide array of treatment options to help ensure that each patient receives the proper care. One of the more common forms of treatment used is a non-surgical procedure known as scaling and root planing. Scaling removes tartar and plaque from the area below the gum line while root planing creates a smoother root and gum surface. Antibiotics may also be used to help alleviate pain and inflammation. Surgical procedures for more severe forms of periodontal disease include: gum graft surgery, laser gum surgery, regenerative procedures, and pocket reduction procedures. 

Treatment Aftercare

It is important to maintain healthy dental care practices to help prevent periodontal disease. This means creating or continuing a good oral hygiene routine, as well as implementing suggestions given by Dr. Veytsman. She may suggest scheduling routine annual check-ups and examinations, as well as bi-annual cleanings. Patients should also implement common oral care practices into their routines, such as flossing, brushing twice a day, and using mouthwash.

Anticipated Costs

The cost of the periodontal examination is included in the cost of the patient’s annual dental exam. The cost for treating gum disease will vary based on the severity of the disease and the treatment used. Patients can discuss treatment options during their consultation with Dr. Veytsman to receive information on costs.
