What to Expect
- At your initial visit, Dr. Young will evaluate your condition and review options for treatment. However, if your needs are complex, you may be scheduled to return for a follow-up consultation at no additional charge.
- If current x-rays (less than 1 year old) are not available, Dr. Young will prescribe the appropriate images to be taken at this initial visit. A full radiographic series (FMX) is needed for a complete periodontal examination.
- A current panoramic (less than 3 months old) film will be required for tooth extractions or dental implants. If your referring dentist has your current x-rays (FMX or panorex), please inform us so that we may assist you in obtaining the appropriate films prior to this first visit.
- Some individuals need antibiotic pre-medication prior to dental/periodontal examination and treatment. If you know you have to pre-medicate and you need a prescription, or if you are unsure and have a risk factors (heart murmur, mitral valve prolapse, history of rheumatic fever, artificial joint or bone, or recent heart procedure), please call our office for assistance.
