GUM DISEASE TREATMENT
Gum Disease Treatment
You may not think about them as much, but your gums need just as much care and attention as your teeth do. Our dentist and team provide gum disease treatment in Montgomery, Texas, to restore the health of your gums if they have been affected by periodontitis. To learn more about periodontitis or gum disease treatment, schedule a visit with Dr. Timothy Gardner.
If your gums are swollen, red or tender, or if your gums bleed easily, then you may have periodontal disease. Other common symptoms of this disease include loose teeth, painful chewing, persistent bad breath, and receding gums that make your teeth appear longer than normal. Following an initial exam at our office, our dentist and team will be able to determine whether you suffer from periodontal disease.
The treatment for gum disease is based upon your specific needs, so depending on the severity of the condition, our dentist may recommend additional professional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), or gum surgery. We strive to help you restore your oral health and halt the progress of the disease. For more information on periodontal treatment, please call or visit our office soon. We look forward to caring for your smile!
