Treating Periodontal Disease in Westchase
Periodontal disease is common. It is also the leading cause of tooth loss. If your gums are red, swollen or bleed easily, you likely have gum disease. Active gum disease has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease and Alzheimer’s. During dental cleanings, your hygienist will clean away the plaque and tartar that lead to decay and gum disease. Dr. Chee will look for signs of bacterial damage or periodontal disease and make treatment recommendations.
If you have gum disease, we can perform periodontal therapy, which includes scaling and root planing to remove the disease-causing agents from your gums. This will allow healing to begin and protect you from the extensive damage and tooth loss that untreated gum disease can cause.
Treatment for periodontal disease is part of your preventive dental care program with Dr. Anne Chee. Dr. Chee has helped thousands of people from Katy, Westchase, Galleria, Briarforest, Memorial, Tanglewood, Sugar Land, Houston and surrounding areas.
