As a part of overall dental hygiene and oral health, it is very important to maintain healthy gums. If this condition is left untreated, serious problems can develop. It is important to diagnose and treat the gum disease in its early stages, as it can lead to permanent damage if not treated adequately. Pregnant women can also be susceptible to gum disease, so we at Texan Smile encourage them to be sure to visit the dentist as a regular part of their prenatal routine.
It is possible to have gum disease without any of the usual warning signs. That is one reason why it is essential to visit your dentist for regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations. During the exam, your dentist will measure the periodontal pockets to determine the type of cleaning you need. If you are a candidate for deep cleaning, you might require follow-up care and more frequent cleanings to keep your disease under control. At Texan Smile in Sugar Land, we would be happy to advise you on the best treatment process for you personally, and Dr. Xavier would be glad to discuss all of your options with you.
Dr. Xavier proudly provides deep cleanings for all of her patients who need scaling and root planing. To learn more about deep cleaning, you can reach out to us at Texan Smile.
