Gum Disease Dental Treatment Houston

Patients in the Houston area who have developed gum disease will need to visit our team of professionals to discuss treatment by Dr. Monti Harpalani and his team at Vivid Dental.


What is gum disease?


The best way to describe gum disease, or periodontal disease, is as an infection of the gum tissue. However, it can affect all areas of the mouth in a negative way. This infection can spread to the bone, causing it to shrink and cause tooth loss. The results from gum disease are irreversible, so prevention of the condition is highly recommended. This is done by maintaining regular dental visits for cleanings and examinations, as well as good home oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing after every meal is a great way to help keep the smile healthy.


Why must gum disease be treated?


Gum disease will not go away on its own. It needs treatment by a quality dentist to control the infection and bring the smile back to health. The best way to start treatment is diagnosing the stage it has reached. Earlier stages of gum disease, called gingivitis, can be reversed with a thorough cleaning, while the later stages often require treatment with antibiotics and a procedure called scaling and root planing to remove infection from even the roots of the teeth. This invasive treatment can be avoided with proper oral care habits.
