Oral Surgeon & Periodontist consult appt next week

I was told by my ortho that I needed to get cleared by a Peridontist before I get my braces. I have had a slight recession on my 2 bottom teeth. I hope it's good enough to NOT have a grafting done...or at least not until I get out of braces. At the consultation, what exactly will he be doing? Also, ...

Anyone have Dominion Dental Ins??

If you do, did you have any wisdom teeth (or any other extractions) and/or jaw surgery? I am considering the jaw surgery when I start my treatment. I just have no idea how much it would cost just yet. I am just trying to get an idea. Also, how much does it cost for impacted wisdom teeth to be remove...

Quick periodontal question

btw I havent gotten my braces yet, but my ortho wants me to get checked at a periodontist for a slight recession on my 2 bottom teeth. My question is, do people tend to get gum grafts before or after braces treatment? Or does it just depend on the severity of the recession?

Thanks for all of your advice. It was very helpful.

I made an appt with my dentist for a cleaning ( I havent been in so long!) and they said I can get it checked out there and if it is bad enough then they'll give me a referral.
