The dental laser will help reduce bacteria and decontaminate the gum tissue so that they can heal properly, and we achieve really great results very painlessly and simply in our practice.

Experience Comfortable Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is caused by bacteria buildup between your gumline and tooth roots. Because brushing and flossing cannot reach this area, the bacteria will continue to irritate your gums, cause other oral health problems, and potentially affect your overall health until you see us for professional help.
To treat your gum disease, we use state-of-the-art dental lasers to remove the infected soft tissue quickly and comfortably. In most cases, you won’t have to return for follow-up treatments!
We can also provide traditional deep cleaning methods:
- Scaling – A technique where we carefully and thoroughly remove plaque and tartar buildup from above and below your gumline
- Root planing – A method of smoothing your tooth roots so bacteria has nowhere to stick or hide
To prevent your gum disease from coming back and reduce deep pockets around your teeth, we can provide a take-home antibacterial treatment called Perio Protect®. With proper oral hygiene at home and regular dental cleanings and exams from Houston Uptown Dentists, your gums will be healthy again in no time!
If your gums have receded because of gum disease, we can restore your gumline with gum grafts or the innovative pinhole technique. Not only will your smile improve, but your gums and your tooth roots will be healthier, too.
