I was diagnosed with gum disease and referred to a periodontist. I had the initial consultation which showed where I had bone loss. The first step would be to do a deep cleaning with four appointments (one for each quadrant). After that, I know I will need gum flap surgery and bone grafts. My question is would this most likely be done across 4 appointments also (one per quadrant)? What about gum graft surgery? Will this be done after the gum flap surgery is complete?\r\n\r\nI'm just curious. I would like to hear from others who have gone through this as well as other dentists. I just want to know how many appointments that I can expect to be looking at after the deep cleaning is done and over what period of time (i.e. number of weeks or months).\r\nI know after that, I will be coming back for maintenance every 3 months. \r\nI just want to know how many visits I can expect this to take. Part of me would like to do everything at one time and be done with it, but I know that it is not that simple.
