Gum Treatment

Need a Houston Periodontist?

Periodontal diseases – infections of the gums – can erode the support of your natural teeth. Early signs of gum disease include swollen, red, or bleeding gums. Gum disease is typically preceded by gingivitis, but not all gingivitis leads to gum disease.

Plaque is the primary cause of gum disease, but other factors such as hormonal changes, illnesses, medication, and bad oral hygiene can play a role in the development of gum disease.

The best way to prevent gum disease is by brushing your teeth and flossing daily. If you begin to notice the following signs of gum disease, schedule an appointment with the nearest Lovett Dental office today. Lovett Dental has a periodontic specialist on staff who is an expert in managing cases of severe and complicated periodontal disease.

Signs of Gum Disease

  • Gums are tender, swollen, or red
