 Root Planing and Scaling

My dentist did the initial examination and said he would do root
planing and scaling . After which he would rfer me to periodontist.

My he charged me $650 for root planing and scaling . Are these charges
extravagant? I don't know how much a periodontist is going to charge
me:(

Please help

To do the entire mouth?

No, it is not extravagant at all... at least in the Northeast, US.

IMHO if the GP knows that root
planing and scaling will not be
enough to correct your periodontal
problem, (s)he should probably
refer you to the periodontist  prior
to this treatment.  It would be both
embarassing and more costly if the
periodontist would have to repeat
the initial therapy.

To double dipping,
