Receive Periodontal Treatment in Houston
Did you know that the most common oral health problem today doesn’t even directly affect your teeth! The answer may surprise, but in all honestly, a staggering 75% of Americans are suffering from some level of periodontal disease. Also referred to as gum disease, periodontal disease may not even show any visible symptoms at first, but if it’s left untreated for too long, it can cause potentially devastating damage to the health of your smile. Thankfully, Dr. Mark Gray and his experienced staff take this threat very seriously. We can provide the personalized care and attention you need so that we can both catch the threat of periodontal disease as early as possible and treat it quickly, comfortably, and effectively at our Houston office.
How Can I Tell If I Have Gum Disease?
Common symptoms of gum disease include:
- Gums that are swollen, tender, or red in color
- Bad breath that isn’t alleviated by brushing, flossing, or mouthwash
- Gums that consistently bleed when brushing or flossing
- Teeth that appear longer (this is a sign that your gumline is receding)
If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. Of course, it’s also important to remember that in many cases of periodontal disease, symptoms don’t manifest until the condition has reached a more advanced stage. That’s why attending regular check-ups with Dr. Gray and his team is so important!
Periodontal Disease Treatment Options
At our office, work hard to prepare our patients for the threat of periodontal disease by providing them with the best patient education we have at our disposal. We also make sure to keep a close eye on any suspicious areas and keep detailed charts. If your case of periodontal disease is already in need of therapy, we can provide comfortable treatment right here in our office with the help of our advanced soft tissue lasers. These excellent tools make it easy for us to cut away affected tissue while simultaneously sterilizing the treatment area and minimizing any bleeding. It’s the most comfortable method out there, and we’re happy to provide it for you here at our updated office!
