Gum Disease Treatment


If you need gum disease treatment in Corpus Christi, you’re in good company. Gum disease doesn’t discriminate. Almost everyone is affected by it to some degree. The good news is that Dr. Tilman Richards provides his patients with a revolutionary laser gum disease treatment in Corpus Christi that’s safe, gentle, and beyond effective.

Gum disease treatment is critical to keeping your natural teeth intact, healthy and strong. Patients who choose gum disease treatment in Corpus Christi with Dr. Richards also lower their risk of developing heart disease, cancer and giving birth to low-birth weight infants.

Look how traditional gum disease treatment works:

  • A scalpel is used to cut the gums open (general anesthetic is needed), followed by deep scraping to remove bacteria, which ends up destroying the nearby healthy tissue as well.
  • Sometimes existing teeth need to be pulled.
  • The gums usually bleed quite heavily and patients wake up with sutures and packing between their teeth and gums.
  • Recovery takes time and it hurts. Pain medication is commonly prescribed.
  • Only soft foods are allowed until the gums heal.

Staff is very friendly. No wait time. They saw me and my daughter in a timely manner and Dr. Richards was so great! The work I had done was completely pain free... Didn't even feel the shot or the work that was being done. The end results were exactly what I needed! No pain, no complaints. Dr. Richards even called the same evening to see if I was feeling okay and to see if I had any questions... Best dental services I have ever had.Marisa B.
