Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment

Dr. Amanda Juarez on non-surgical disease treatment Read Transcript

Did you know as many as 2 out of 5 Americans unknowingly suffer from gum disease? If you want to know for sure if you could benefit from nonsurgical gum disease treatment, contact Houston Uptown Dentists today! At our Houston, TX dentist office, Dr. Juarez, Dr. Lindskog, and our professional team of hygienists have undergone extensive training to keep your whole mouth healthy, including your gums.

Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment in Houston, TX

Gum disease is caused by bacteria buildup in between your gumline and your 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, called:

  • 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 to or hide

To prevent your gum disease from coming back and reduce deep pockets around your teeth, we can also 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!

Gum Recession Treatments

If your gums have receded because of gum disease, we can help get your gumline back where it needs to be with the innovative pinhole technique or by using gum grafts. Not only will your smile improve, but your gums and your tooth roots will be healthier, too.
