Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common condition in which patients would have the small pockets surrounding the teeth professionally cleaned. In more severe cases, surgery would be necessary. Periodontist Stephen Walker (and the team at Texas Dental Surgery) have cared for thousands of people with periodontal disease and helping them to once again have healthy gums.
Surgical Procedure; state-of-the-art North Dallas Dental Surgery
In the event that cleaning of the pockets is not enough to cure the condition, surgery will be necessary to reach areas were plaque cannot be removed. Small incisions will be made in the gums to help make the areas with tartar and plaque more accessible for cleaning. Afterwards, the gums are stitched up and the recovery process begins. In the future, pockets will be much shorter, thus allowing for patients to keep teeth cleaner, more easily.
