Periodontal Services in Spring, Texas

Periodontitis, or gum disease, is a condition that occurs when the gums become irritated due to prolonged exposure to plaque, tartar and bacteria. The early stage of the condition is marked by swollen and inflamed gum tissue that may begin to bleed during brushing and flossing. Over time, the gum tissue will begin to retract and pull away from the teeth. This leads to the creation of periodontal pockets, which can become filled with bacteria. The condition then spreads throughout the rest of the mouth. If it reaches the jawbone and the connective tissues of teeth, tooth loss may follow. Dental Professionals of Spring offers periodontal services for all stages of gum disease. Our experts will work to restore your gums and reverse the harmful effects caused by the condition.

What is Scaling and Root Planing?

Scaling and root planing is an effective treatment for mild to moderate periodontitis. The treatment is performed by using specially designed dental tools to access the area deep below the gum line. This allows our hygienists to eliminate any tartar and plaque that is causing issues. Root planing is then performed by smoothing out the root surfaces. This prevents future buildups.

What is Gum Graft Surgery?

Gum graft surgery is a procedure performed to restore the receding gum line that often occurs with periodontitis. We harvest oral tissue from other areas of the mouth to cover up any exposed tooth roots. This procedure helps prevents infections and restores the patient's appearance.

What is Dental Crown Lengthening?

Dental crown lengthening is a procedure designed to correct the “gummy” smile that can occur when the gum tissue becomes swollen and inflamed. This minor oral surgery involves cutting away and reshaping the excess gum tissue. This will restore the patient’s appearance and reveal more of their teeth.

What is a Gingivectomy?

A gingivectomy is an oral surgery that is used to treat moderate to severe cases of periodontitis. This procedure is performed when the periodontal pockets have become too deep to treat with scaling and root planing. During the surgery, any loose and diseased gum tissue will be removed. This will allow us to access the periodontal pockets and eliminate any infectious material.

What is Root Surface Debridement?

Root surface debridement is a procedure used for treating moderate to severe cases of periodontitis. The treatment involves accessing the root surfaces to remove the hardened calculus and plaque that has accumulated in those areas. The treatment can stop the condition before it reaches more crucial areas. Successful treatment should encourage proper healing.

What is Pocket Reduction?

Pocket reduction refers to procedures designed to reduce the size of the periodontal pockets that develop with gum disease. These treatments involve using an antimicrobial liquid that is applied directly to the affected areas. The antimicrobial liquid should kill off any bacterial presence and allow the periodontal pockets to shrink in size.

What is Osseous Surgery?

Osseous surgery is a procedure designed to reduce the size of periodontal pockets. Our experts cut into the gum tissue and lift it upward. This allows us to access the harmful tartar and plaque and remove it. The tissue will be closed, and the pockets should begin to heal and shrink in size.

What is Ridge Augmentation?

Ridge augmentation is a procedure designed to treat the gum tissue when tooth loss has occurred. The procedure involves applying bone grafts to the alveolar ridge bone. New bone growth should occur, and healing should follow. This should strengthen the jawbone so that implants can be installed to replace the lost tooth.

What is Ridge Preservation?

Ridge preservation is provided when a patient has lost a tooth due to periodontitis, but they cannot replace it right away. The procedure involves applying bone grafts to the site of the lost tooth. This will slow down any jawbone deterioration that would otherwise occur. Doing this will make it easier to install an implant later when the patient ready to replace the tooth.

What are Regenerative Procedures?

Regenerative procedures are used to restore the jawbone and the connective tissues of teeth when they have experienced damage due to periodontitis. These procedures are performed by accessing the affected areas and applying bone grafts. This will encourage new bone growth and help the structure heal.

What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation?

Pinhole gum rejuvenation is an advanced technique designed to treat a receding gum line without making any true incisions. Our experts make a series of very small holes in the gums. We then use dental tools to gently massage the issue back into place. Pinhole gum rejuvenation features a very fast recovery period since no incisions are made.

What is a Sinus Lift?

A sinus lift involves accessing the sinus membrane and pushing it upward. The area is then treated with bone grafts to promote healing. This oral surgery is often performed when the upper jawbone has experienced too much decay for implants to be safely installed. A sinus lift will push the sinus membrane up and out of the way so that our experts can install a dental implant.

What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting refers to the technique of using advanced proteins and artificial bone-like material to stimulate new bone growth. The process involves surgically accessing the area where bone rejuvenation is needed. The bone graft will be applied, and the area will be sealed. We will then monitor the area over time to check the development of new bone growth. Bone grafts are often used when the jawbone has experienced deterioration and is too weak to support implants.
