Recover From Periodontal Problems With Our Solutions

You likely have gingivitis if your gums are sore, bright red, or bleeding. This can be uncomfortable. If left untreated you could develop advanced gum disease, also known as periodontitis. That can lead to bone and tooth loss. It can also put you at risk of heart disease, stroke, and other overall health issues.

We want to keep you as healthy as can be, which is why preventive care is a major part of our general dentistry. When you need additional care, we can do these things:

Scaling — Think of this as a deeper cleaning than you get during a routine checkup. To fight gum infections, we remove plaque and tartar from between your teeth and gums, particularly in “pockets” where bacteria can accumulate.

Root Planing — Smoothing the surface of your roots helps in two ways. First, bacteria have a harder time clinging to a smooth surface. Second, this makes it easier for your gums to reattach to your teeth.

Laser Treatment — If you have a serious infection, a dental laser is a gentle and effective way to remove the “bad” tissue while sealing healthy tissue without stitches.

Gum Grafting — Receding gums can occur as a result of periodontitis. Gum grafting can restore your gumline. We may also refer you to our Calallen Corpus Christi location. That location has a periodontist who can perform the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, which is a less invasive alternative to a graft.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

Does it hurt to have gum disease treatment?

Not usually. With the advanced in dental care, we can provide practically painless treatment for our patients. This starts with local anesthetic and dental sedation, both of which can block pain during your appointment. Plus, we have invested in technology like dental lasers for gentler care.

Why do I have gum disease?

Gum disease develops when harmful bacteria find places to hide and multiply in your mouth. These bacteria feed on food particles that get stuck in your teeth (which is why flosing is so important). The bacteria can cause inflammation in your gums and below your gumline. Often you will notice swelling or bleeding as early signs of gum disease.

How long does it take to finish gum disease treatment?

For simple infections, you can complete your treatment in as little as an hour. This starts with a deep cleaning by your dentist or hygienist to remove tartar and plaque buildup from your mouth. For more advanced problems, you treatment can take longer and may require multiple visits.
