Experience Healthy Gums With Comfortable Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is caused by bacteria buildup between your gumline and tooth roots. Because it’s tough to reach this are with brushing and flossing, 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.

We have several options to treat your gum disease:

  • State-of-the-art dental lasers can 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 using scaling and root planing. We will carefully and thoroughly remove plaque and tartar buildup from above and below your gumline, then smooth your tooth roots so bacteria has nowhere to stick or hide.
  • We may provide a take-home antibacterial treatment called Perio Protect® to prevent your gum disease from coming back and reduce deep pockets around your teeth.

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.

Common Questions About Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that build ups around your gumline, leading to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulates. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.

Can I avoid gum disease?

The best way to avoid gum disease is by practicing good oral hygiene, brushing twice a day and flossing daily as well. It’s also important to visit your dentist for professional dental cleanings at least twice a year. Since smokers are more likely to get gum disease, you’ll lessen your risk if you stop smoking. If you notice any signs of gum disease, notify your dentist right away. Treating it in its early stages will enable you to avoid the tooth loss that can result from advanced gum disease.

Do I need gum disease treatment?

If your gums feel tender or bleed while brushing and flossing, you may need gum disease treatment. These are symptoms of early-stage gum disease. If the disease progresses, you may also notice that your gums begin receding away from your teeth and you have bad breath no matter how often you brush.

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms to look for include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.
