Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease Treatment

If gum disease is discovered in the early stages, treatment is simple, and the condition can be kept under control. Periodontal (gum) disease treatment from our Houston office consists of regular comprehensive dental cleanings.

The early stages of gum disease can be treated with routine six-month cleanings and an at-home dental health routine. However, for more advanced cases, regular periodontal maintenance is required, which consists of thorough cleanings usually scheduled every three months that is performed by our skilled dental professional.

Why gum disease treatment?

If left untreated or never detected, early gum disease (gingivitis) can progress to the advanced stage, periodontitis. At this point, the condition is no longer reversible. At Dr. Teeth, your Houston, Texas periodontist uses scaling and root planning to treat periodontal disease. This method removes all the stored toxins, tartar, and plaque in the gum pockets. During this deep cleaning, all uneven teeth surfaces are evened out so that harmful bacteria have nowhere left to hide.

In the most severe cases, your periodontist in Houston performs periodontal surgery to gain control of the infection.

Gum Disease Maintenance

It is necessary for patients who have undergone scaling and root planing or periodontal surgery to keep up with periodontal maintenance. Advanced gum disease is not curable, but it can be controlled with the help of our Houston, TX periodontist. A good maintenance program will keep diseased gum pockets clean and will prevent bacteria from breeding, as well as prevent the accumulation of plaque and tartar.
