If you’re using our new patient special, at your first visit you’ll receive a cleaning, exam, and any necessary x-rays. You’ll be able to use the new patient special assuming you are free of periodontal disease (gum disease). If our doctors find an indication of gum disease, they may recommend a full mouth debridement and scaling and root planing (commonly called a deep cleaning) instead. If no issues are found during your exam, we’ll simply see you in six months for your next cleaning and check-up. However, if our team does find problems that need to be addressed, there may be additional costs as other treatments are not included in the new patient special. Our team is happy to work with you to find a convenient time to come in for any recommended follow-up treatments.
