Examination of Periodontal Issues
For the most part, there is no pain involved in periodontal disease, and a patient will not have any knowledge of his or her periodontal problem until there is severe damage to your gums and supporting bones. Dr. Malek is a dental specialist with practice in Long Beach, California, that could treat the early stages of periodontal disease with scaling and root planning. During your checkup, Dr. Malek will examine your gums for periodontal problems. An instrument called a periodontal probe is used to gently measure the depth of the spaces between your teeth and gums. Periodontal disease develops when the healthy gum tissue begins to form shallow grooves between the tooth and gums, this is called the sulcus. With the progression of periodontal disease, the sulcus will increase from the normal 3 millimeters or less measurement. As these pockets increase in size, plaque bacteria will begin to collect. Dr. Malek will determine which therapy is right for you.
