    Common Periodontal Issues

    Gums and periodontal tissues form a supportive foundation for teeth and anchor them within the jawbone. However, they may get infected or inflamed over time, leading to future complications. That’s why we offer complete periodontal care in Houston, TX, to mitigate various periodontal issues, including:

    • Gingivitis: Poor oral hygiene can cause inflammation of the gums, known as gingivitis. It is the initial stage of gum disease that often presents with redness, tenderness, and gum bleeding.
    • Periodontitis: If left untreated, gingivitis progresses and leads to periodontitis, which involves the inflammation of periodontal tissues. Advanced periodontitis is one of the primary causes of tooth loss among adults.
    • Gum recession: Aggressive brushing, gum disease, and some other factors may cause recession of the gum tissues. It exposes the tooth roots, causing tooth sensitivity and increased risk of root caries.
    • Bone loss: Periodontal disease or loss of natural teeth eventually leads to deterioration of the surrounding alveolar bone. It can be a serious risk for the remaining healthy teeth.

    Conservative Periodontal Care In Houston, TX

    Periodontal issues often present with minimal symptoms during the initial stages, but they worsen over time if left unaddressed. At our Houston, TX, facility, we emphasize the importance of early periodontal care and intervention, as it halts the progression of gum disease and helps maintain a healthy smile.

    During your routine evaluation, we will assess the health of your gums and periodontal tissues. If you have early signs of gum disease, such as redness, inflammation, gum bleeding, or tooth recession, we will devise a treatment plan to address your concerns. Our aim is to preserve gum health with conservative and non-surgical treatment measures, including deep cleaning and Perio Protect trays. 

    Deep cleaning, also called scaling and root planing, removes plaque, calculus, and stains on the tooth surfaces. It also smoothens the surface of tooth roots, facilitating the reattachment of gums. Perio Protect trays are another advanced measure that gently covers the gums and applies medication that helps eliminate harmful oral bacteria. It reduces the signs of inflammation and improves gum health.
