Dr. Christian Berdy and Dr. Cary Berdy know patients may have many questions when coming in for their gum surgery treatment. Our dentists and their dental team have answered our most frequently asked questions about our periodontal surgery in Jacksonville, Florida.
What should I expect coming into my surgery?
Our professionals will have examined your teeth and gum tissue to determine whether periodontal surgery is the best solution for you. Berdy Dental Group will also answer any questions you may have about your treatment, either before, during or after your visit.
Under what circumstances will I need a periodontal procedure?
Without proper treatment, gum disease can advance quickly and lead to painful symptoms and even tooth loss. Our practice will determine whether surgery or another periodontal procedure can best treat the source of your symptoms.
How long is periodontal surgery recovery?
Usually, patients can return to their normal schedule the day following a procedure. Complete healing time varies so it is important to read the post-operation guidelines given to you. Following these will help shorten your recovery.
Can my surgery be paid under my insurance?
It depends on the insurer and individual’s policy, but many plans do cover a part or full of periodontal surgery. Our office can answer questions you may have about your coverage, and we are also willing to file your insurance plan.
