When gum disease isn’t caught or treated in its early stages, it can continue to get worse and become advanced periodontitis. This form of gum disease can be dangerous to not just you oral health, but also your overall health. If you are noticing the signs of advanced periodontitis, such as painful gums, shifting of teeth, gum discoloration, or pus around teeth, contact your Houston dentist right away.
If left untreated, advanced periodontitis can lead to a bone infection in the jaw. Advanced periodontitis treatments include flap surgery, tissue or bone grafts, and guided tissue regeneration. The procedures are more invasive than those of gingivitis or periodontitis, but they are necessary to stop the infection from spreading and causing more damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw bones.
At Naba Dental, we work quickly and diligently to treat advanced periodontitis with the utmost care. Shoddy procedures can lead to further infections, but our team of doctors and support staff know that proper precautions make all the difference. We check and recheck all necessary avenues for treating the disease and utilize the latest technological equipment to ensure accurate diagnosis and expert treatment.
