Dentist Vero Beach

Diagnosing periodontal disease involves a thorough assessment of the gums, teeth, and supporting structures. Dr. Ember Courtney-Lima and Dr. Anthony Lima will conduct a comprehensive examination that includes several key components. These may include visually inspecting the gums for signs of inflammation, measuring periodontal pocket depths using a probe, and taking X-rays to evaluate bone loss.
