Stillwater Periodontal Center

Limited to Periodontics & Dental Implants

First Visit

What can I expect the first time I visit a periodontist?

During your first consultation visit, Dr. Sutherland will review your complete medical and dental history with you. He will examine your gums, check to see if there is any gum line recession, and assess how your teeth fit together to see if any are loose. Dr. Sutherland will also take a small measuring instrument and place it between your teeth and gums to determine the depth of those spaces, known as periodontal pockets. This helps him assess the overall health of your gums. If there is concern regarding individual teeth, Dr. Sutherland will examine those areas.

X-rays may be taken to observe the health of the bone below your gums. Once your periodontal health has been evaluated, Dr. Sutherland will work with you to determine the treatment options that are best for your oral health.
