This can occur when there is a deeper space between the teeth and gums known as a “pocket.” These pockets can develop when a person has not had their teeth professionally cleaned for a long period of time, when taking certain medications, or if there are complicated medical conditions. Perio/Scaling & Rootplaning start at $184 and up

Full Mouth Series of X-rays is typically taken once every 5 years unless necessary for additional diagnosis or medical purposes. X-rays start at $31 and up
