"My first visit at Made Ya Smile Kingwood could not have went better. The check in process was fast and easy and the front desk staff were friendly. Everyone in the back office was amazing including the staff that took my X-rays and the dental hygienist. They were super friendly and professional and put my anxiousness at ease. The dentist came in at the end and he was very personable and explained everything in detail. I feel like each person who saw me that day played an important role in making my experience so special and they made me feel important and heard. I will definitely be back and highly recommend them to family and friends. My only regret was not going there sooner!"- S.R. / Google / Nov 22, 2023

Who Is a Candidate for Gum Disease Treatment?
We welcome you to contact our office to learn more if you have periodontal disease or suspect that you would benefit from a consultation. We are eager to help you. Periodontal patients will have symptoms, like painful-to-the-touch gums, bleeding gums, red or swollen gums, infection (pus), shifting teeth, bad breath, an unpleasant tasting mouth, bone loss, and gum recession. However, many patients are not aware they have gum disease. This is why annual dental examinations and cleanings are so important for your oral health. We can identify the periodontal disease before it takes a turn for the worst and requires surgery.
What Is the Gum Disease Treatment Process?
Our Made Ya Smile Dental team will want to study your condition in a comprehensive examination before scheduling a treatment. Each stage of periodontal disease can require different treatments to improve the health of the gums. We want the best possible outcome for you, which is why we will take digital x-rays and measure the depth of your periodontal pockets between the spaces of your teeth and gums. By reviewing the imaging and pocket readings, we can make a personalized treatment plan for you. There are no one-size-fits-all approaches to this disease, and everyone deserves to have the service their condition requires. Our team may recommend scaling and root planing, pocket irrigation, antibiotics therapy, gum grafting, and/or gum surgery to get your gums back on the right track.
What Can I Expect After Periodontal Care?
Your recovery timeline will be dependent on what treatments and services you have performed, how well you care for your teeth at home, and if your gums respond positively to the treatment. If you have any questions about your treatment or how you are responding to a specific medication or service, please call our office for assistance. The more advanced your periodontal disease is, the more aggressive we will be with treatment and monitoring your progress.
When your periodontal disease treatment is complete, we may recommend a periodontal maintenance program to help you maintain the health of your gums and jawbone. Periodontal maintenance appointments typically occur every 3 – 4 months. These visits include in-depth teeth cleanings above and below the gums and periodic exams, allowing our team to monitor your periodontal health closely. Periodontal maintenance cleanings take the place of biannual prophylaxis cleanings. They are designed to help you better manage your oral health and reduce the risk of gum disease progression.
Does Insurance Cover Gum Disease Treatment?
Investing in periodontal treatments is essential to your gum and overall oral health. With many methods of payment, low-interest financing through CareCredit®, and dental insurance benefits you may have available, we are flexible when it comes to payment options used to cover the cost of your treatments.
Gingivitis and Periodontitis Treatments
