Periodontal Care

Healthy gums for a healthier Houston.

Protect Your Gums. Maintain Your Health.

Dentistry just doesn’t focus on your teeth; it addresses your gum health too.

The Problem

Today, over 85 percent of the population has some form of periodontal (gum) disease. The problem is that periodontal disease is very elusive. Often, it is misdiagnosed or simply ignored.

The Symptoms

Common symptoms include bleeding, tenderness, and inflammation. However, gums may recede, leaving teeth vulnerable to decay, abscesses and tooth loss – without any symptoms.

The Importance

Healthy gums are essential for attractive, comfortable, functional teeth. But what may surprise you is that healthy gums are also essential to good overall health too.

I have been to several dentists in my 55 years but I have never found one as wonderful of a person and a dentist. I have told everybody that I can about Dr. Mitchmore and staff.

Studies show periodontal disease can affect whole-body health. The pockets of bacteria hiding below the gum line can increase your risk of:

  • Heart attack

  • Stroke

  • Certain cancers

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Controlling blood sugar in diabetes

  • Premature birth and preeclampsia

  • Low birth weight babies

  • Other health concerns

Oral bacteria that enter the bloodstream may cause the liver to produce more proteins such as C-reactive protein, one of the known factors in many diseases.

There is good news. Gum disease is easily treatable – even reversible. And best of all, with the advancements made in modern dentistry, periodontal therapy is more comfortable, thorough and effective than ever before.
