Periodontal disease affects millions of individuals per year.

Periodontal disease is a serious disease that not only causes gum recession and tooth loss, but has also been linked to heart disease and diabetes. If you suspect that you may have periodontal disease, you cannot afford to wait any longer to visit a periodontist. Dr. Sharon Minott-Warren and her team conveniently provide a complete set of periodontics in Houston to meet your dental needs.

Know the Signs

Periodontal disease has three main stages. The first stage is gingivitis, during which you may experience red and swollen gums, a receding gum line, and bad breath. The second stage is periodontitis, which is characterized by bright red gums, swelling, tender gums, the appearance of gaps between teeth, and loose teeth. The third stage presents more severe symptoms, including bone loss, severe bad breath, receding gums, misaligned teeth, and swollen, bleeding gums. It's important to contact your periodontist if you experience any of these symptoms.

Some ways that you can prevent periodontal disease includes:

  • Brush your teeth twice per day, including before going to bed
  • Floss once per day
  • Include mouthwash in your dental hygiene routine
  • Schedule regular dental appointments

Catching periodontal disease in the early stages is vital in preventing further damage.

Difference Between Periodontal Maintenance and Regular Dental Cleaning

Periodontal maintenance and dental cleaning serve different purposes and are performed at varying intervals. Dental cleaning, or prophylaxis, is a routine preventive procedure for maintaining overall oral health, primarily targeting plaque and tartar removal. In contrast, periodontal maintenance is a specialized procedure for managing gum disease in patients diagnosed with periodontal issues, involving deeper cleaning and typically performed more frequently.
