LEARN ABOUT PERIODONTAL SERVICES PROVIDED BY HOUSTON, TX AREA DENTIST, INCLUDING THE GUM DROP TECHNIQUE

If you are a patient in the area of Houston, TX and have been diagnosed with a severe stage of periodontal disease, a trained dental professional can assist you with reversing the damage that may have been caused by the disease. For most patients with gum disease, receding gums are a serious issue. The first step is to treat the underlying disease, but after the periodontal disease has been managed, it is important for patients to restore their receding gums to their natural appearance for both aesthetics and function. Minimally invasive gum recession treatments such as the “gum drop technique” are available at Houston Biological Dentist from our dedicated dentist, Dr. Marilyn Jones.

What is the gumdrop technique?

The gumdrop technique is a biologically enhanced soft-tissue procedure that was developed by Delia Tuttle, DDS in California as a way to restore the gums over the natural tooth roots after gum recession has occurred. This particular technique offers patients both cosmetic and restorative improvement of their smile by bringing receded gums back into their proper place on the tooth. This is important because the gums help protect the natural tooth while ensuring a beautiful smile with a properly aligned gum line.

Dr. Marilyn Jones of Houston Biological Dentist encourages patients to consider the gumdrop technique following periodontal disease services, as it helps to:

  • Promote more healthy bone
  • Develop thicker gums
  • Protect the natural teeth and their roots

The gumdrop technique involves creating minimally invasive incisions and working with the patient’s own blood derivatives to cover the exposed tooth roots with existing gum tissue and expedite healing. The procedure can be done even after periodontal disease has caused damage to the bone, gums, and teeth.

Patients are encouraged to consult with Dr. Jones to determine if they are a good candidate for the treatment, find out more about what it involves, and learn about other periodontal services available to bring their smile back to health and restore their confidence in their appearance.

Wow! I cannot explain how truly grateful I am to have found Dr. Jones. I was referred to her practice from a friend, and to say the least it was a very pleasant experience. Like most people, I have always been nervous about going to the dentist, but Dr. Jones put all my fears at ease. She was gentile, thorough and listened to all of my questions and concerns. Her staff was so welcoming and I cannot wait to return with the rest of my family.

In general, I have a strong dislike for the dentist. I have very sensitive teeth and continually find that dentists do not listen to me as I explain this.I really appreciate how Marilyn is willing to listen to you and really takes into account what you say. It means a lot for a dentist to take the time to do that and actually follow through with what they say that they are going to do. This was the best experience that I've had with a dentist, and I will definitely be going back!

Just like most people I hate going to the dentist but Dr. Jones office was very professional and polite; they made my experience very pleasant. When I asked a lot of questions they took the time to explain things to me or elaborate their answers. I would definitely recommend making your next dentist appointment here if you want to be sure you have a seamless and stress free experience!

My regular dentist failed to make my appointment so I came into this dental office as a walk-in and surprisingly was seen within minutes. It was just a routine check-up but they found a minor cavity on my back molar. Fortunately, I have set up a follow-up appointment with Dr. Jones instead of my regular dentist. I was really impressed by the staff and the professionalism. I received literature about gum health and when I called back an hour later with more questions, all were answered immediately. The location is perfect so I'm happy to have stumbled upon it, definitely going to refer my friends!

First time here and I have to say I was really impressed. The location of the office is great and easy to find and the staff here are very professional. I found Dr. Jones when I started my search for a dentist in the area and I'm glad I did. I don't know about the other services she provides but speaking for myself I can say I think she has routine dental and patient care down pat, I just might make this my permanent dentist office.

It's that time again. dental cleanings, physical exams, and all other fun stuff that you never really have the time to do, but know it has to be done. I am a person that hates going to medical appointments of any kind and not because of fear or pain, but because it seems that many offices have poor time management, and "ain't nobody got time for dat". I arrived about ten minutes before my appointment time, but since it was near the end of the workday, I was sure I would be waiting forever. To my great delight, I had barely completed my enrollment paperwork when I was escorted to the back by a friendly dental assistant that asked about my day and chatted about hers; she did a good job at helping me relax. The rest of the appointment went smoothly. Dr. Jones has warm, friendly eyes that made me feel as if she really cares about what’s best for you when she speaks to you. All I went in for was cleaning and checkup, but I got a lot more. I found a regular dentist.

I am a recent transplant to Houston and was recommended Marilyn's practice by friends. I was worried there would be difficulty with my insurance and transferring my paperwork from my dentist back in MD, but receptionist was extremely helpful and took care of everything. The waiting room was nice and welcoming. Unlike most doctor or dentist appointments there was no waiting an hour after your original appointment time. The staff was prompt and courteous. After being lead into the exam room I was greeted by a technician/ hygienist (?) who cleaned my teeth and took the necessary x-rays. Marilyn came in after and was extremely nice and patient answering all my questions about a minimal oral surgery I would need to schedule for the future. Overall for a dentist appointment it was a very pleasant visit 🙂
