Recovering from Treatment with a Periodontist
Your recovery will depend on the type of treatment you have. Procedures take place in-office where we can provide a range of anesthesia options, from local anesthetic to conscious sedation. Sedation helps eliminate anxiety and fear and allows you to “sleep” through the procedure. With any procedure, Dr. Ficca will numb the area so that you can be comfortable throughout your experience.
Before your treatment, Dr. Ficca will provide you with the information you need to have a fast and restful recovery. A periodontist visit doesn’t have to require extensive downtime; with some of the procedures that Dr. Ficca performs, you can expect to be back to normal activities right away. After other surgeries, however, you should plan to take 2-3 days to recover and follow postoperative guidance. This may include sticking to a soft food diet, taking ibuprofen and TYLENOL® to manage discomfort, and other steps.
What Is the Cost for Treatment with a Charlotte Periodontist?
Costs vary based on the procedure you have, but with any care our practice provides, we will offer transparent and easy-to-understand pricing. The procedures that Dr. Ficca performs are meant to offer long-term benefits to patients. By investing in a treatment like gum grafting, you can avoid further damage from gum disease and eventual tooth loss; by choosing to get dental implants, you can have new and durable teeth that look and function better than alternatives such as bridges or dentures; and so on.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Ficca and our Team can discuss pricing and the details of treatment with you. We encourage you to make an appointment so that we can provide you with the highest-quality care you need and deserve.
Whether you require treatment for gum disease, want to restore your smile and bite, or are experiencing gum recession and bone loss, Dr. Ficca can help. Schedule a consultation with our Charlotte periodontist office by calling (704) 544-2224.
