Are your gums swollen, irritated or red? Notice they are bleeding or infected? You may be experiencing a common condition known as periodontal “gum” disease. When found in early stages, gum disease treatment is quite simple and can even reverse gingivitis. However, once it has progressed periodontal diseases can only be treated and managed, not cured.
For the early stages of gum disease (gingivitis) treatment often includes routine professional dental cleanings along with a proper at-home dental care routine. For more advanced gum diseases cases, professional gum disease treatment in Lake Jackson, TX may be recommended.
About Our Gum Disease Treatment
At Smile Square, we recommend dental scaling and dental root planing in Lake Jackson, TX for our patients suffering from periodontal gum disease.
- Dental Scaling – During the dental scaling procedure, specialized tools will be used to thoroughly remove any bacteria, plaque or tartar buildup on the teeth.
- Dental Root Planing – Once any bacteria, plaque or tartar buildup has been removed, dental root planing will be performed to smoothen the tooth roots, allowing the gums to reattach properly and heal.
In the event that dental scaling and polishing is not enough, periodontal surgery may be recommended in order to get your periodontal gum disease under control.
