Cleburne Dental Care

Periodontics

Periodontics is an area of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of the gum and bone that hold teeth in place.

We are experts at recognizing such gum disorders as gingivitis, an infection of the gums, and the more destructive gum disease known as periodontitis. Some of the more common treatments we might provide include: cleaning and scaling teeth to remove harmful substances called plaque and tartar; prescribing medicines like antibiotics and special mouthwashes; and for more severe dental problems, oral surgery. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. Most patients associate periodontal care with teeth cleaning. At Cleburne Dental Center, however, we strive to educate our patients and to focus on a comprehensive treatment plan to reduce the risk of periodontal problems.
