More extensive Houston teeth cleanings and additional periodontal care may be necessary if there is evidence of gingivitis or more advanced stages of gum disease. While more frequent, deeper cleanings and improved homecare can often reverse the effects of gingivitis, which is the initial stage of gum disease, latter stages of periodontal disease will require different regimens of care.
