At Anderson Family Dentistry, we recognize the critical importance of periodontal health as a foundation for overall oral wellness. A periodontal evaluation is a meticulous assessment designed to detect any signs of gum disease, ranging from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitis. This comprehensive examination allows us to identify, treat and manage gum disease effectively, preventing its progression and safeguarding your oral and general health.

During the evaluation, our skilled dentist will examine your gums for signs of inflammation, check for any gum recession, assess how your teeth fit together when biting and measure any pockets around your teeth. We may also utilize digital X-rays to inspect the bone levels beneath your gums, offering a complete picture of your periodontal health.

The benefits of a periodontal evaluation include:

  • Early detection of gum disease, allowing for more effective treatment
  • Prevention of tooth loss by addressing periodontal issues promptly
  • Reduction of the risk of complications related to overall health, such as heart disease and diabetes
  • Customized treatment plans tailored to your specific periodontal needs
  • Education on proper oral hygiene practices to maintain gum health

Whether you are experiencing symptoms of gum disease or are due for your regular checkup, we are here to support your periodontal health every step of the way. Call us today at 804-744-1280 to schedule a periodontal evaluation in Midlothian, Virginia, with Dr. Tyson Anderson , and take a proactive step towards protecting your smile and well-being.
