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 is nonsurgical gum disease treatment?

Nonsurgical gum disease treatment is designed to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and under your gumline without surgery. Your hygienist or dentist will use special instruments to carefully get your gums back into shape, or they will use a gentle laser to remove damaged gum tissue and seal your gums back at the same time.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

You should not feel any discomfort during your gum disease treatment. Our team will thoroughly numb your gums before we get started so that you don’t feel anything. Plus, we offer a choice of sedation options if you’re nervous about your gum disease treatment. Pick from inhaled sedation with laughing gas, oral sedation using a pill, or IV sedation for our deepest level of sedation.

What are gum disease symptoms?

In its very early stages, gum disease often shows no symptoms. As it progresses, however, your gums may become red and puffy and painful to the touch. Your gums may also bleed when you brush or floss. If left untreated, gum disease can even lead to tooth loss. Getting regular checkups every six months is crucial to stopping the cycle of gum disease.

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.
