Our dentist and team in Houston, Texas, specialize in the treatment of gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease. Our dedicated team is committed to providing effective care to reverse the effects of gingivitis and restore your oral health. With our patient-focused approach and advanced treatment methods, we aim to address the root cause of gingivitis, ensuring your gums are healthy and resilient.

Understanding Gingivitis

Gingivitis is a common and mild form of gum disease characterized by inflammation of the gums. It is often caused by the buildup of plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on the teeth. If not properly treated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease. Symptoms of gingivitis include red, swollen and bleeding gums, especially during brushing or flossing.

Our Approach to Treating Gingivitis

Treating gingivitis effectively requires a thorough approach. We start with a detailed oral examination to assess the extent of the gum inflammation. Our treatment typically involves professional dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gum line. We also provide personalized oral hygiene advice, guiding you on how to maintain effective dental care at home. For more advanced cases, we may recommend additional treatments such as antimicrobial mouth rinses or localized antibiotic therapy to reduce gum inflammation and promote healing.
