Preparing for Your First Visit to a Periodontist


Posted on 4/26/2021 by Ronald Watkins
Preparing for Your First Visit to a PeriodontistIt is common for patients at our periodontal clinic to have their first visit following a recommendation from their general dentist.

Have you been told to see a periodontist? If so, you have probably developed some issues related to your periodontium. The periodontium refers to the soft tissues that surround and support your teeth.

At Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona, Ronald Watkins, DDS, MS and have been providing periodontal care to patients for many years. We specialize in the treatment, prevention, and diagnosis of periodontal diseases that affect your gums, teeth, and jawbone.

Here is some general info to help you prepare for your first visit to our periodontal office and make the most of your appointment.

Getting Ready for Your Initial Consultation


Before you visit us at Implant and Periodontal Wellness Center of Arizona, try to make a list of the symptoms you might be experiencing. It is a good idea to jot them down on paper or your smartphone. Bring the list to our periodontists. It will help them better understand your condition and may even save the need for certain dental scans.
We encourage you to also tell us about any, and all symptoms, including ones that you might think are unrelated to your oral problem.

What to Expect?


In order to determine the best treatment option for your dental condition, we might need your detailed medical history. Therefore, we might ask you about any existing or previous health problems. Or any allergies you may suffer from. We might also inquire about any routine medications you take, including dietary or herbal supplements and over-the-counter medicines.

Additionally, we will thoroughly examine your mouth to check the position and strength of your teeth, along with gum health. Once we make a proper diagnosis, we will discuss the available treatment options. Moreover, we will assist you in understanding which one is right for you.

We stay up-to-date on the latest techniques in periodontics and use our expert skillset to provide optimum results to our patients.
