Gum Disease Symptoms

Gum Disease Symptoms

Not sure if you have periodontal disease? Some of the warning signs include red or swollen gums, tender gums, bleeding while brushing or flossing, receding gums, loose teeth, sensitive teeth, mouth sores, and persistent bad breath. Common risk factors include tobacco use, diabetes, poor nutrition, and grinding your teeth.

Gum Disease Diagnosis

Gum Disease Diagnosis

In order to diagnose periodontal disease, Dr. Dholariya will perform a visual exam. This check is also done as part of a routine dental visit. We will measure the space between your tooth and gums, known as measuring the pockets, to see if they are a healthy depth. We will also check for any bleeding or inflammation.

There are two general types of periodontal disease: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the least severe stage where your gums are tender and inflamed, and they may bleed. As the condition worsens, your gums are more irritated and bleed more easily. Left untreated, gum disease can even result in your teeth loosening or falling out and bone loss.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease Treatment

How we treat your periodontal disease is heavily dependent on how advanced your condition is. There are a variety of treatment options available, including a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing, antimicrobial rinses, antibiotic gel, and antibiotic tablets. With scaling and root planing, we first remove any tartar around the gum line and then we smooth out any rough spots around the tooth root to eliminate any inflammation.

    First of all I have anxiety issues & am terrified of dentists. But as I was called to the back the dental assistant (Cecily) made me feel right @ ease. Normally X-rays are very uncomfortable but the technique they used was easy & quick. Dr Dholariya explained to me what my options were on what I needed done and would pretty much walk me through the process as we go along. Definitely would recommend this practice!

  • I had an amazing experience today at Kyle Parkway Denistry. The office was very beautiful and the staff was welcoming. The check in process was fast and easy. Although I am not the most comfortable at the Denist’s office, I had a great visit and thorough cleaning. I immediately booked my next appointment and will be booking my family members in the near future. I highly recommend this office and Dr. Dholariya!

    Angel R.
  • I was very apprehensive to return a dentist office. However, from the moment I scheduled my appointment to my actual procedure, I felt so comfortable and attended to. I highly recommend Dr. D. and his co-staff at Kyle Parkway Dentistry.

  • I needed to get my permanent brace fixed and Kyle Parkway was the only place that was willing to look at the brace and not immediately tell me that the brace needed to be replaced. I was able to be seen the same day. The front office was super friendly and helpful, the dentist is friendly, clear and gentle. He checked out my brace, so no damage and suggested to just fix the adhesive and I was out in no-time. The office itself is beautiful! I was looking for a new dentist close to home and Kyle Parkway is definitely the place where I will go from now on.

  • These guys are great!! Everyone was very kind and checked on me regularly to make sure I was doing okay. I haven't been to the dentist in years but I didn't feel embarrassed by that at all here. They explained things very well and I was able to understand why they wanted to do certain procedures and how their payment methods worked. They even let you watch Netflix while you wait for the doctor! Overall amazing experience; thank you Kyle Parkway Dentistry!

    Maia B.
  • My teeth have become extremely sensitive over the years because I grind my teeth in my sleep. I had reached a point where I dreaded going in for routine teeth cleanings. Switching over to Kyle Parkway Dentistry was the best decision ever. Their staff was amazing! No wait; I got in on time for my appt as soon as I arrived and Paul (hygienest) took his time to ease my fears and the whole experience was stress free. Great dentist and staff!

    Christina S.
  • Same-day appt for new patient accepted without hesitation! (Technically two same-day appointments). Smiling faces, professional staff and humor too! Treated with care from the moment I entered and existed.
