Your First Visit

During your first visit, Dr. Pylant will review your complete medical and dental histories with you.  Thorough oral and periodontal evaluations will then be done.  Dr. Pylant will examine your teeth and gums checking for signs of disease.  Measurements will also be taken of your periodontal pocket depths using a small measuring instrument (much like a ruler). The measurements help Dr. Pylant determine the health of the gums.  X-rays (radiographs) may also be taken to check for possible bone loss.  This initial information helps Dr. Pylant assess your current periodontal situation and treatment needs.  After the extent of the disease has been determined, a thorough plan of action will be discussed with you prior to beginning any therapy. This will include a full review of the findings, treatment sequence and a discussion regardng financial policies/insurance.  For further details, please click the Treatment Overview link.

*NOTICE: Our Lake Oconee (Eatonton, GA) office ONLY closed April 10, 2017

It is with a heavy heart that we decided to close our Lake Oconee Office (Eatonton, Georgia) and want all to know that we have truly enjoyed working with the patients and doctors in this area. We believe that long-term periodontal care and follow-up are essential for maintaining good dental and general health and would love to see our Lake Oconee patients at our Athens facility.

Our last day at the Lake Oconee office was April 10, 2017. If you have appointments after this date, we will be glad to see you at our Athens office. Please contact our office to set up the appropriate appointments.
