Home » Services » Periodontal Disease Overview

When left untreated, periodontal disease can erode your beautiful, healthy gums and sometimes cause tooth loss. At Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston, we provide several gum disease treatment options, including ways to reverse the effects of gum disease and stop gum disease before it gets out of control. We are pleased to help our patients in Houston, TX, to enjoy healthy smiles.

Non-Surgical Treatment (Scaling And Root Planing)

If our periodontists diagnose you with periodontal disease, you may need a deep cleaning. Also known as scaling and root planing, this non-surgical gum disease treatment is designed to eliminate large deposits of plaque and tartar. After your deep cleaning, your gums should return to a healthy, pink state.

Surgical Treatment Options

There are a variety of periodontal treatments to control an infection caused by gum disease. When gum disease reaches a severe level, we use surgical treatment options to cure the condition. Surgical treatment options in periodontics include gingivectomy, pocket reduction surgery, and bone grafting/regeneration of bone.

Gingival Contouring (Esthetic Crown Lengthening)

Some people are born with uneven gums or excessive gum tissue. This condition can create aesthetic issues with your smile. We may recommend gingival contouring as a cosmetic periodontal treatment to improve the balance between your teeth and gums, giving you a more beautiful smile!

Gum Grafting Surgery

Gum recession can result from periodontal disease, aging, trauma, over-brushing, and misaligned teeth. Gum recession can result in substantial sensitivity issues, pain, and poor smile aesthetics. Gum graft surgery may be the best way to address severe gum recession.
