Hi...at a recent recall appointment I was surprised to have my perio pocket numbers read out loud. I had about 8 - 4's, 1 - 5 and the rest 3,2,1. The higher numbers were on the tongue side of the back molars where I have 7 PFG and one full gold crown. I know, a lot for 47 years old. I'm trying..
"I see a registered dental hygienist , I am charged for code 4910 Perio Maintenance. Should I be receiving care from a periodonist. Since I once had gingivitas I was told the Hygienist services could be billed as Periodonist. Is this correct, ethical, legal ???"

I just recently went in for an exam. I was set up with a cleaning split into to different visits. I was told that they wanted to do one side at a time so my whole face wasn't numb. It has been a while since I've had a cleaning but never did I have to get shots to numb my mouth just for a cleaning...
I wanted my bottom teeth cleaned and was told I needed them scaled. I told her I just wanted them cleaned and she refused saying it was against the law as I had deep gum pockets. Is there such a law and can't I make my own decision as to health care for myself?..
Is it too much to expect that when you get a dental cleaning, that your teeth be all the way clean? I've never had this problem before, but the current dentist I'm seeing is 0 for 3. The first time my teeth didn't even feel clean and the hygienist had seemed completely half hearted. She barely e..
Hello....I had a routine cleaning done and the dentist I saw cut off the piece of gum tissue that is between my two front teeth. Now there is a very noticeable space between the teeth where the gum tissue was previously. Will this fill in?..
I just left the dentist and am not sure I trust them - they are new to me. The first time I went in was with a severe pain in a front tooth. They wanted almost $1000 out of pocket to do the work and place a crown. The specialist completed the root canal and recommended no crown and I was out of poc..

I've been told I need perioscaling because pockets are 7mm deep. Does it hurt? Are there risks? Is it truly needed? Is it generally a one time event with regular cleanings every 3 months or so.Is there a price range? If so, about what should I expect to pay?..
After a deep cleaning my dentist is now telling me that I have to go back in 3 months. Would that be to get a regular cleaning done or to have another deep cleaning? Because they made me think that it was for another deep cleaning. The pockets that I have are 4 and 5...
I'm really scared of the dentist. So I don't often go to the dentist. My gums have signs of bleeding when I suck on them, and when I brush. Otherwise it's fine. Some of my gums feel pain when I press my tongue against them. I've used somewhat like a dental pick between my teeth cause I've noticed t..
Could you please tell me whether it is possible for the dentist to scratch my front teeth while he was removing the tartar from under the gums with that manual metallic instrument?
As I left the dental clinic I noticed long scratches on my front teeth (some of them rather deep-like cracks) I have n..
I am in need of a cleaning as well as root planing. My dentist says that it's good to have a cleaning before root planing because it recedes the gum line by reducing inflammation, thus allowing for deeper root planing. However, I've also read that getting a cleaning right before root planin..
I'm embarrassed to say it's been far too long since I've been to dentist. Things have been rough financially and I lost my job 2 and half years ago. It's all we can do to keep a roof over our head at present. Thus dental care for all of us has gone by the wayside I'm sorry to say though we do have..
About 3 months ago I went and had a dental cleaning, but to my luck this dentist, shaved, chipped and cracked some of my teeth. They were already almost transparent and told her they were sensisitive. Theres pain on the bottom of teeth and they hurt in between, (when she like, sliced up and tried t..

I had a deep cleaning because I had deep pockets in my back teeth. I could not make the follow up one month later and they were all booked for the whole next month. Now I think I cannot make the next appt as I am traveling for work. Since it is so hard to get an appt I wonder if I can go to a new d..
