Dedicated to Improving Your Smile

Your smile can only reach its fullest potential when soft tissue is healthy. Using the latest methods and technology, we treat cases of gingivitis and periodontitis in our local and provide the necessary care to avoid advanced gum disease in the future.

Periodontal disease develops when tartar accumulated below the gum line. This creates a space between teeth and gums, called a pocket, where bacteria enter the bloodstream, becoming potentially harmful to a patient’s systemic health. Once developed, periodontal disease has been known to put individuals at greater risk for issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Signs you may have periodontal disease include:

·  Bleeding gums while brushing or flossing
·  Loose teeth
·  Recession
·  Redness and swelling
·  Pain or discomfort
·  Persistent bad breath

Periodontal Care and Laser Therapy in The Woodlands, TX

Dr. Polo provides deep cleanings, also known as scaling and root planing. This procedure involves removing tartar buildup from below the gum line and smoothing away bumps and grooves on teeth where bacteria are likely to hide. Once your smile is thoroughly cleaned, we offer an antibacterial wash and laser gum therapy sessions to encourage a speedy recovery.

Laser therapy promotes proper healing by eliminating bacteria that cause soft tissue infection. This treatment is entirely comfortable; patients feel hardly anything during treatment. Laser bacterial reduction also encourages the healing process by clotting blood vessels and sealing tissues.

Patients that undergo laser therapy demonstrate positive results in recovering from periodontal disease. This treatment can be especially helpful for those coming back to our office experiencing stubborn periodontal disease that has not responded sufficiently to previous treatments.

Routine visits to the dental office every three months are necessary to monitor patients’ recovery processes and provide additional care when necessary.
