Periodontal Disease Treatment in Houston

Protecting Your Oral Health

While a general dentist can treat mild to moderate periodontal conditions, once the disease has advanced it is important that it be addressed by a specialist. Signs of advanced periodontal disease include bleeding gums, inflamed gums, and sensitive or even loose teeth.

Dr. Sharon Minott-Warren is a Houston periodontist who will evaluate the extent of your periodontal disease and thoroughly explain the treatment options that are available to you. There’s no reason to let your oral health suffer any longer: The sooner you schedule an appointment with Bellaire Periodontics, the better.

Causes of Periodontal Disease

Some of the potential causes of periodontal disease include:

  • Plaque build up
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal changes in women
  • Certain diseases such as diabetes
  • Smoking

Warning Signs & Diagnoses

Addressing your periodontal condition immediately is important for your overall health. Studies indicate that the inflammatory response caused by periodontal disease can be linked to other chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s. The treatment of periodontal inflammation will not only help manage the disease, but may also help with the management of many other chronic inflammatory conditions.

If you have any of the following, you could benefit from a periodontal evaluation:

  • Heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease or osteoporosis
  • Family history of periodontal disease
  • Tooth or gum sensitivity
  • Pregnancy or planning on becoming pregnant

It is important to note that a complete periodontal disease treatment regimen includes routine maintenance. This means that you must commit to your own dental health by seeing your general dentist as well as Dr. Minott-Warren in order to maintain the healthiest environment possible to prevent further breakdown. In doing this, you will be able to keep your natural teeth longer and preserve the remaining healthy bone structure in your jaw. Dr. Minott-Warren will work hand in hand with your general dentist to ensure that your dental health is maintained once she has gotten the disease to a stable condition.
