Treating Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is hard to stop once it has begun. Our staff at Quest Dentistry in Houston, TX are trained to act quickly to prevent any further spreading of gum disease once it begins. Our dentists will use specific instruments to dislodge plaque below the gum line. Using a process called scaling and planning, dentists will address the root cause of the gum disease and restore healthy activity to the area below the gum line.

Once the teeth have been scaled and planned, the dentist will begin anchoring and stabilizing the roots of the teeth. If a bone graft is needed, that’s the first step. After the graft heals, the teeth will have a splint applied, and then the dentist will place a decorative cover such as a crown over the area to hide the splint that anchors the teeth.

Cosmetic Periodontal Procedures

Concerning cosmetic treatments, crown lengthening is perhaps the one most people ask for. During the process, the crown is lengthened, and the tissue surrounding the tooth is removed to give the teeth a lengthier appearance.

Gum grafting repeats that process but in reverse. Tissue from elsewhere in the mouth is implanted on the gum line to reduce the length of the teeth above the gum line. Our dentists can give your smile a more youthful appearance by grafting tissue in place. These two procedures are very common and can be performed on an outpatient basis with limited healing time.
