If you experience any of these symptoms, make an appointment to see your Katy, TX periodontist right away.
The treatment of periodontal disease depends on its severity. If it is caught early enough, proper oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings will be enough to prevent it from worsening. This means visiting the dentist at least twice a year and staying on top of your brushing and flossing, making sure to use proper techniques.
A more intensive procedure called scaling and root planing may be necessary if the disease has progressed. This is a type of cleaning that involves numbing the area with local anesthetic. Your periodontist will then remove plaque from above the gum line and smooth out the root area. Additional gum surgery might be necessary to help make your gums easier to clean.
