PeriodontitisINITIAL EXAMINATION:
Dr. Mao will examine you for periodontal disease during each routine checkup. A periodontal probe will be used to determine if there is any breakdown in the gum tissue attachment or if pockets have developed between your gums and teeth. The depth of the pockets indicates the amount of bone loss which has occurred around your teeth.

Treatment will depend upon the type of periodontal disease and how far the condition has progressed. :
