Periodontal Treatment at Texas City Dental


When the periodontal disease affects the bone and supporting tissue, it is termed periodontitis and is characterized by the formation of pockets or spaces between the tooth and gums. This may progress and cause chronic periodontal destruction leading to loosening or loss of teeth. The dynamics of the disease are such that the individual can experience rapid periodontal disease activity in a relatively short period of time, followed by periods of remission. The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near t La Marque, Galveston, and Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB, and ROSS market complex is a dentist office near your location and is the best option available.

One of the challenges for early detection of periodontal disease is its “silent” nature – In its early stages, bleeding gums during toothbrushing may be the only sign; as the disease advances and the gums deteriorate, the bleeding may stop and there may be no further obvious sign until the teeth start to feel loose. Gingivitis starts when food debris mixes with saliva and bacteria which, in turn, forms dental plaque that sticks to the surfaces of teeth. If dental plaque isn't removed by brushing with toothpaste and flossing, it can become mineralized and form tartar, or calculus. Tartar is very hard, and only professional dental cleaning can remove it. Both dental plaque and tartar are filled with harmful bacteria, and if they aren't removed from teeth, they will begin to irritate the gums and cause gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis will often extend from the gums to the bone and lead to periodontitis.

Periodontal disease can be prevented with:
  • Daily meticulous removal of plaque by toothbrushing
  • Regular visits to the dentist/hygienist (once a year)
  • Avoidance of behavioral and environmental risk factors like smoking, stress, poor diet.
