Complete Periodontal Care for Gum Disease

Part of caring for your smile involves caring for your gums. The soft tissue helps hold teeth in place and protects the sensitive roots of teeth. Gum disease can sneak up on people with even the most diligent brushing routine, so it’s important that you visit us for routine preventive care to let us take a good look at your teeth and gums.

Are you ready to transform your smile?

WHAT IS GUM DISEASE?

Gum disease has a few different stages, but what it all boils down to is infection around and inflammation of the gums. The earliest stage of gum disease is one many people are familiar with: gingivitis. This stage is marked by red, tender, and inflamed gums. The gums may even bleed during brushing. If it’s not treated, gingivitis can turn into periodontitis and advanced periodontitis. In these more advanced stages, the gums begin to pull away from teeth, creating pockets where bacteria can accumulate. Eventually, periodontitis can lead to bone and tooth loss.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

It’s easy to miss the signs of gum disease. Some professionals even call it “the silent killer” because of the way it sneaks up without warning. There are a few signs you can look out for and call us about if you notice them.

  • Red, swollen, or inflamed gums
  • Bleeding when you floss or brush
  • Gums that are receding or pulling away from teeth
  • Change in bite
  • Loose teeth
  • Mouth sores
  • Chronic bad breath or a metallic taste in mouth

TREATING GUM DISEASE

When we see that gum disease is present, either during a routine appointment or because you’ve come in with symptoms, we need to act fast to prevent it from spreading further. In fact, if we catch it early enough, we might even be able to reverse the damage. With early-stage gum disease, we can perform a deep cleaning to remove the plaque and bacteria causing the gum disease. We may also provide a topical antibiotic to stop the infection. With more advanced periodontitis, we may recommend oral surgery using our soft tissue laser to remove the disease and restore some health to your gums. No matter what stage gum disease you have, though, it’s important that you come in as soon as possible so we can start the treatment process. Severe gum and bone disease that loosen up the teeth will require you to do to a periodontist in Houston.

I went in on Thursday to look at the art gallery they have upstairs and it is a very beautiful office. Had a convo with the owner which is the dentist for downstairs and he was telling me how he supports local artist and let them show off their art in his office, which I thought was wonderful. I got a very good vibe from this dental office. I will definitely be making an appointment to get my check up with Ben. I found my new dental office. I love when local small businesses support everyone. And I loved the Halloween stuff they had up also.

I highly recommend this dental office!!Today was my first visit at Urbn dental and I loved it!! Dentist, hygienist and staff were all very nice and super informative. I was a bit nervous about getting a deep cleaning, but it was pain free and I love the results. I have a follow-up appointment in a few weeks for a mouth guard (I grind my teeth) and I am actually looking forward to seeing the dentist again. Never thought I would be saying that!!

I hadn't been to the dentist in 4-5 years, nor had I ever scheduled an appointment for myself since moving out of my parents' house or getting my own insurance. Urbn Dental was very user-friendly and welcoming. They have complimentary coffee and water in the waiting room, and the staff are super helpful and nice. They explained everything to me from my X-rays to my insurance coverage, and I felt well cared for. Would definitely recommend!

As someone who is terrified of the dentist, all I can say is WOW. Best experience I’ve ever had at a dental office by far. Was very nervous when I first came in but everyone immediately made me feel comfortable. They walked me through every process and made me more knowledgeable about my teeth and gums. My mouth feels amazing after the deep cleaning (which came with zero pain and plus you get to watch Netflix the entire time which is awesome!) Will definitely be back.

I had to take my mom in for an emergency procedure today, and EVERYONE in the office was amazing, from the front desk, to the dental assistant, to the dentist himself. My mom felt so cared for, and I will definitely return. They were unbelievably wonderful.
