Gum Disease Treatment in The Woodlands, TX

Our goal is to have you keep your natural teeth for your entire lifetime. One thing that could prevent that is gum disease, which is responsible for 75 percent of adult tooth loss.

Gum disease is caused by the colonization of bacteria, which cause an active infection in your gum and jawbones. Gum disease can affect more than your mouth, however; scientists have found that the bacteria and chemical by-products the body uses to fight the gum disease bacteria can enter the blood stream and cause serious problems in distant parts of the body. These problems can include heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pre-mature births, and low birth weight for babies.

Gum disease has been described as periodic and cyclical. You may experience an episode and then the disease may remain dormant for a while before returning. Gum disease can be hard to detect, because there are no noticeable symptoms for a long time; a dentist or hygienist must do a thorough and complete examination to detect it, especially in its early stages.

While it is very important for you to thoroughly clean your teeth twice a day, it is also important to have a thorough cleaning and examination twice a year. We provide thorough examinations to monitor you for any potential signs of diseased gums.

Our services include:

  • In-office non-surgical periodontal therapy
  • Charting and diagnostic services
  • In office therapy with Arestin® and Oraqix®
  • Referral to a trusted periodontist if necessary

Services from your Woodland Dentist

When you have a family to take care of, time can be in short supply. That’s why we provide a wide variety of dental services that can help smiles of all ages, eliminating tedious visits to other offices. From routine hygiene to revitalizing restorative care to Invisalign treatment and much more, Dr. Taylor, the dentist Woodlands residents trust, and his team have the skills and dedication needed to not only meet, but exceed your expectations.

At the foundation of our services is your twice-yearly dental checkup. These appointments serve as the baseline from which we develop a treatment plan to help you maintain your best oral health. Beyond cleaning and polishing your teeth, one of our skilled hygienists will also examine your teeth and gums, looking for signs of decay or gum disease. Periodically, we will also take digital x-rays to find any concerns that are not visible to the naked eye, such as a cavity between two teeth or infection developing deep inside a tooth. Another very important component of a checkup is an oral cancer screening. This disease is highly treatable and curable when found early.

Similarly, other oral and dental health concerns are relatively easy to treat when found sooner rather than later. Some of the restorative treatments Dr. Taylor offers to repair your smile include:

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings
  • Dentures and Partials
  • All Porcelain Crown, Inlays and Onlays
  • Root Canals
  • CEREC one-visit crowns and other restorations
  • Bridges
  • Dental Implants

For those times when you want to enhance your smile, we have a number of cosmetic treatments. One of the most cost-effective is teeth whitening with Zoom! Whitening. In just one appointment, you can have a smile that is several shades brighter and whiter.

Have a chipped or slightly cracked tooth? Cosmetic bonding uses tooth-colored composite resin material to rebuild and reshape your tooth. If you have several teeth that are chipped, cracked, misshaped or slightly misaligned, then consider porcelain veneers. These coverings are adhesively bonded to your teeth, so you can present an aesthetically pleasing smile to family, friends and colleagues.

We proudly serve patients in Conroe, The Woodlands, Spring, Houston and surrounding communities. Call our office in The Woodlands, TX today to schedule an appointment for yourself or another member of your family.
