What is Periodontal Probing?
During your periodontal (gum disease) evaluation at our Newmarket Dental office, you may have noticed the dental hygienist using a special instrument referred to as a periodontal probe to measure the space between your tooth and the gum tissue. This dental probe measures in millimeters and is used to measure pocket depths around each tooth to determine the level or progression of gum disease.
After your periodontal evaluation, Dr. Ian Gray will be able to provide you with a few treatment options and a maintenance program that will help to control your gum disease and help return your teeth to their full health.
