Round Rock’s Top Periodontal Treatment Center
Gum Therapy And Recession Treatment in Round Rock, TX!
Once your gum tissue recedes and exposes the roots of your teeth, it will not grow back. You can prevent them from receding more by seeing your dentist regularly and practicing good oral hygiene. Without treatment, your gums will continue to recede, and you will require a type of surgery called gum grafting.
If you notice your teeth look longer than they used to, or you have visual evidence of your gums pulling away from your teeth, it’s time to see the dentist about receding gums. Healthy gums appear pink and the gum line is consistent around the edges of teeth. Receding gums look inflamed and irregular. Teeth can become sensitive to heat and cold.
If your dentist catches gum recession early, you may be able to address the issue at home. Your dentist will identify the cause and help you implement solutions like a mouth guard for teeth grinding or a new toothbrush for aggressive brushers.
If your gum recession has progressed, your dentist may recommend you visit a periodontist for an evaluation. A periodontist is a gum specialist who will diagnose the cause of your gum recession and then make a plan of action to address it. You’ll likely be directed to purchase a new toothbrush, and will receive special toothbrushing instruction. Periodontists often prescribe a special cleaning called a “scaling and root planing.” Follow all directions carefully to recover from the procedure and keep your gums healthy.
The periodontist and dentist will continue to work together to manage the progression of your gum disease and avoid further procedures. If your gums continue to recede, the periodontist may prescribe gum graft surgery as the only alternative treatment available.

What Our Patients Say About Us
Most 5 star reviews in the Round Rock!
Periodontal treatment is a series of procedures designed to treat gum disease. This disease can cause a range of symptoms, including bad breath, red and swollen gums, and loose teeth. With proper treatment, gum disease can be managed and prevented from causing further damage.
There are several types of periodontal treatment, including scaling and root planing, antibiotic therapy, and periodontal surgery. These treatments are designed to remove harmful bacteria, promote healing, and restore the health of your gums.
While there is no cure for periodontal disease, it can be effectively managed and controlled with proper treatment and good oral hygiene habits. This means maintaining a regular schedule of dental check-ups and cleanings, brushing and flossing regularly, and making any necessary lifestyle changes to support good oral health.
Many people worry that periodontal treatment will be painful, but modern techniques and anesthesia have made most procedures relatively painless. You may experience some discomfort or soreness after the procedure, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
If you experience symptoms like red or swollen gums, bleeding when brushing or flossing, or persistent bad breath, it’s important to schedule an appointment with your dentist or periodontist. They can evaluate your condition and recommend the best course of treatment to restore the health of your gums and teeth.
