Periodontal Patient Information – Dallas, TX
How to Get Started with Us
If you’re ready to finally get rid of your gum disease, replace your missing teeth, or fix your gummy smile, then you’ll find no better place to visit than Lincoln Park Periodontal and Dental Implant Group. We’re always eager to welcome new patients into our periodontal office, and to get started, we recommend reading the page below so you know exactly what to expect. For questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
Your First Dental Visit
Once you’ve been brought to the back, a member of our team will begin the appointment by taking some X-rays and photos of your mouth. You’ll then meet your periodontist, who will take a few minutes to talk about your concerns and goals before giving you a thorough exam. Using their observations and the images from earlier, they will put together and discuss a treatment plan with you and answer any questions you might have. After you both agree on what to do next, you’ll be escorted to the front desk.
To help you save time at your appointment, you have the option to download our New Patient and Pre-Surgery forms below so you can fill them out at home. Just remember to bring them to our periodontal office on the day of your visit, and this will enable us to bring you to the back with little to no wait!
After any type of periodontal surgery, it’s important that you follow your periodontist’s instructions after you go home. Be sure to relax on the day of your procedure so the healing process can begin on the right foot, and take any recommended medication as instructed. If you’ve been prescribed antibiotics, be sure to finish the medication even if you stop experiencing symptoms.
