Three Tips for Choosing the Right Dentist for Periodontics Treatment

Periodontics Tempe, AZ

Have you ever been let down by the quality of care you received during a dental visit? Unfortunately, this may be an experience for some patients who are seeking periodontics treatment. The good news is that there are ways to help ensure you choose the right dentist for your periodontics treatment needs.

How to choose the right general dentist for periodontics treatment

You can help ensure you find the right general dentist for periodontics treatment by reviewing the specific periodontal services the dentist provides, checking the location, fees, and reviews of each dentist you consider, and scheduling a consultation visit. Based on how the consultation goes, you can either move forward with treatment or continue searching for the right dentist.

Consider the services the dentist provides

Every general dentist offers their own set of dental services based upon their experience and what best meets the needs of their patients. For most dentists, periodontal services are included in what they offer. Some of the more common periodontics treatments that general dentists provide are:

  • Deep dental cleaning
  • Laser treatment
  • Pocket reduction
  • Gum grafts
  • Crown lengthening

It is important to check the specific list of services offered to ensure they can help with your specific concern(s). Many dentists list their services on their website, or you can call them to ask how they can help you with your specific needs.

Check the location, costs, and reviews

The location of the dentist may also be an important deciding factor as to which dentist you choose for periodontics treatment. Of course, for most patients, the closer to their home the better. However, driving further for a dentist that may be more suitable is often the right choice as well. Cost may also become a factor. However, prices that are too low could be a cause for concern, especially if the dentist does not have quality reviews from prior periodontics patients. Checking online reviews and reading each review from prior patients is important; it provides an indicator of the quality of service you can expect.

Schedule a consultation before agreeing to treatment

Last but not least, it is important to schedule a periodontics consultation. While a dentist may seem like the right choice initially, it may not seem that way during the first visit. This could be due to rude staff or a dentist who does not seem to understand or be able to meet the patient’s needs. On the other hand, if the consultation goes well, then the patient can feel comfortable moving forward with the treatment plan that best allows them to meet their periodontal treatment goals and preferences.
