Therefore, it is better to get your gums checked by our periodontist in Taylor, TX, if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Bleeding from gums (with or without brushing)
- Swollen, inflamed, and tender gums
- Deep gum pockets around teeth
- Gum recession
- Pus drainage from gum tissues
- Loose or mobile teeth
- Increased tooth sensitivity
Questions About Periodontal Treatment?
What Are the Different Kinds of Periodontal Treatments?
Periodontal treatments are necessary for stopping the disease progression of gingivitis (inflammation of gums) and periodontitis (inflammation of supportive tissues). During your initial consultation, we will study your case in detail to design the best course of treatment. We offer the following treatments for these periodontal issues:
- Gingivitis is the initial stage of periodontal disease that presents with inflammation of the gums and bleeding. It can be treated with preventive dental cleaning (scaling) and proper oral hygiene maintenance.
- Periodontitis refers to the inflammation of supportive tissues that surround your tooth structure. Its initial treatment includes non-surgical scaling and root planing (SRP). We may place antibiotics beneath your gum line along with SRP for added protection.
- Advanced periodontitis characterizes by gum recession and extensive bone loss. It can be treated by surgical care such as osseous surgery (or flap surgery).
- Bone loss can occur at any stage of periodontal disease. Bone grafting techniques are the best option to replenish lost bone and improve bone density.
- Gum recession can be treated by a gum graft. It is usually done after controlling the progression of periodontal disease.
