Gum disease, sometimes referred to as periodontal disease, is a common oral condition that can lead to gums separating from teeth. When the gums separate, pockets begin to form which can harbor bacteria, infection, and decay. As the disease progresses, patients may end up with spacing issues and may even lose teeth. Wondering if you have periodontal disease? Here are the signs to look for:

  • Gum Swelling
  • Gum Irritation/Discoloration
  • Gum Infection
  • Foul Breath
  • Misaligned Teeth
  • Loose Teeth

Spring, Richmond, Humble and Katy, TX Gum Disease Treatment

  • Tooth Scaling – Specialized dental tools will be used to remove tartar, plaque, bacteria, and infection from the affected teeth and gumline.
  • Root Planing – After tooth scaling, the roots of your teeth will be smoothened, allowing gums to attach and heal easier.
  • Surgical Periodontal Therapy – In certain cases, gum disease may progress and require more serious treatment options. This may include a gum graft or pocket reduction. During a pocket reduction, bacteria and infection will be removed, teeth will be smoothened, and the tissue will be attached for healing. A gum graft involves covering exposed roots or tooth structures that may be lost due to gum disease.

Gum Disease Treatment FAQs

Can gum diseases be cured?

Best way to cure. Gum disease is by preventing it from getting worsee. There are a number of treatments that can be used to help manage the symptoms. Treatment may include antibiotics, toothaches, and over-the-counter medications but the most important part is seeing your dentist periodically

How can you treat gum disease without a dentist?

While a dentist is required to treat gum disease, there are number of things you can do at home to prevent gum disease. These include brushing and flossing your teeth, eating a healthy diet, and using a proper water mouthwash. If you have a lot of plaque build-up on your teeth, you may need to see a dentist immediately to remove it.

How long does gum disease take to go away?

It takes time for gum disease to go away. There are many different factors that contribute to how long it takes, including the age, health, and lifestyle of the person with gum disease.

Is gum disease permanent?

The severity of gum disease will depend on the individual's overall health and personal history. Generally speaking, gum disease is a chronic and often serious problem that can lead to tooth loss and other problems. However, a lot of our patients have had successful treatment with medications and/or surgery for gum disease, and it is possible that the condition will improve over time.

What happens if gum disease goes untreated?

Gum disease can lead to a number of problems, including bad breath, tooth decay, and even gum disease itself. If left untreated, gum disease can also cause problems with your dental hygiene, which can lead to periodontal disease, which can lead to wisdom teeth loss, and finally, gum cancer. So, it’s important to get help if you suspect that you have gum disease, and to take steps to treat it if it’s diagnosed.
