What treatment is available for gingivitis for Houston area patients?

Gingivitis Treatment Houston

Gingivitis is the initial stage of gum disease. When Houston area patients address this stage as soon as possible, they can easily reverse it with proper treatment. At Vivid Dental, gingivitis is commonly treated with a thorough professional cleaning of the gum tissue and teeth.


Gingivitis is not to be ignored. In fact, the earlier the condition is caught, diagnosed, and treated, the easier it is to maintain a healthier smile and better oral health. However, if gingivitis is ignored and allowed to continue, it can develop into the later stages of periodontitis and result in irreversible damage to the teeth, gums, and bone.


Gingivitis has some very common, noticeable characteristics that patients should look out for which include:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing
  • Red, inflamed gum tissue


As soon as any of these concerns arise, it is important to make an appointment with the team of Vivid Dental. Vivid Dental is committed to assisting patients for their regular cleanings and examinations, as well as servicing them as necessary between visits when problems arise. Our practice offers emergency dental care and can also do our best to schedule in appointments as necessary, even when short notice.


In order to properly diagnose the condition, our team starts with a thorough evaluation. X-rays may be taken and a physical examination will take place. Once it has been determined that gingivitis is the concern, we will begin to speak to patients about treatment options. In these early stages, a deep cleaning is often all that is needed. Patients may also be educated on how to care for their teeth and gums to keep the condition controlled and avoid reoccurrence. At Vivid Dental, we may also request that patients come more regularly to the dentist to monitor their condition until it clears.


Houston area patients interested in visiting a quality dental team in a state-of-the-art facility are encouraged to contact the group of Vivid Dental. We believe in providing patients of all ages with comprehensive dental care and believe a healthy smile is a beautiful smile!
