How To Treat Gum Disease

In this video, Austin cosmetic and implant dentist Dr. Brandon Hall explains the course of action we take to remove all traces of harmful bacteria from your mouth.

How do you treat gum disease? This is a common question and it is a very well treated, addressed, common dental problem. What we do is we have you in, we do an initial consultation and evaluation to determine the gum disease and the severity of it. Basically, the initial treatment that we use is a non surgical approach which is debridement of that bacteria and buildup and tartar and calculus that are attached to the teeth.

This is what’s full of bacteria that are causing the gum disease and we need to go and just basically get rid of that stuff and get it out of your mouth and get it off of your teeth. We get you numb before this. So it’s comfortable and it’s a very well tolerated procedure.

This is the initial treatment that we do is a debridement of all that bacteria and buildup. Then we keep you coming in on a very frequent basis to make sure we keep it under control and we get your mouth back to state of health. So both of those are very important: initial treatment and then follow up care.
