• What is gum disease?
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common condition that can afflict your gums and eventually lead to tooth and bone loss. It is an infection of your gums and soft tissues caused by rapidly growing bacteria. Beginning as gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums, gum disease can progress quickly if left untreated. Our seasoned dentist and dental team work hard to both prevent and treat gum disease. You may need gum treatment in Dallas, Texas if you are experiencing any of the signs of gum disease, such:
  • Bleeding gums
  • Unusually red, swollen, or tender gums
  • A receding gum line, causing teeth to look longer than normal
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Pain when biting down or chewing
  • How is gum disease treated?

The type of periodontal treatment we suggest will be based on the severity of your case, as well as your individual needs. Periodontal treatment begins with proper oral hygiene and antibiotics to control the infection. Scaling and root planing are common deep cleaning methods used to remove plaque, tartar, and infected gum tissue. If necessary, gum surgery may be suggested.
