Worried About Your Periodontal Health?

If you keep up with a good oral hygiene routine, you can have fewer concerns about your teeth and gums. With that said, you should look to our dentist for help in managing your dental health even if you brush and floss regularly, as problems may form and escape your notice until there are complications that you have to manage. One of those potential complications has to do with your periodontal health. Gingivitis is the first stage of an infection that affects your gums. It can be identified and addressed through a deep cleaning, which removes bacteria from your roots. If the problem worsens, you can experience a more severe form of gum disease that requires further support. Our Bellaire, TX dentist’s office has an on-site periodontal specialist who can help you manage a serious problem with your periodontal health. We can also provide support through regular preventive care, which can stop gingivitis.

Ignoring Periodontal Problems Can Have Serious Consequences

How much trouble can gum disease really cause? Your risk for tooth loss is impacted by the state of your periodontal health. People affected by advanced gum disease are more likely to lose teeth over time as the tissues that support them are destroyed, leaving them unstable and vulnerable. You also need to be aware of the threat oral bacteria pose when they have the opportunity to spread and affect your general health. Through both ongoing preventive support and by providing opportunities to meet with an on-site specialist, we can help our patients when they need to manage different degrees of poor gum health.

Dealing With Gingivitis To Prevent Complications

At regular dental exams, we can take care of your teeth and gums by providing both thorough cleanings and routine evaluations. Cleanings that remove plaque and tartar at the base of teeth make you less likely to have problems with gum disease. When we see signs of gingivitis, we can recommend that you have a more involved cleaning that will remove bacteria on the roots of teeth.

Our On-Site Specialists Help Patients Manage Different Concerns

At other practices, when problems need to be seen by a specialist, patients have to go through the process of scheduling care at a new location. This can prolong the time it takes them to receive the care that they are seeking. Our practice has specialists on-site, including Dr. Fabia Younus, who specializes in both periodontal and orthodontic treatment. Because of this, you can more easily and promptly see someone about your struggles with periodontal disease.
