The first appointment will always be a periodontal consultation. This will involve a comprehensive discussion to ensure we are aware of your personal concerns and aims of treatment. This will be followed by a detailed periodontal examination which involves measuring the position of the gums and determining whether or not spaces (pockets) have opened up between the gums and the teeth.
It is important that before any treatment is suggested, the severity and extent of the disease are established. X-rays and photographs may also be taken on this appointment. Once all the information has been obtained, Dr Wadia will discuss the findings in detail and suggest any treatment that may be required.
She will also cover any other questions at this appointment including costs and timings. To read more about the consultation appointment, click here
