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.

  • positive review 

    The staff are all really great. You are greeted from the time you walk into their office until you walk out. They make you feel like part of their family. Very patient and always listening to any questions and or concerns you may have. Oh by the way thanks Paul for the “Friends” episodes!

  • The office is very clean, and the staff is absolutely wonderful. I would recommend this dental clinic to anyone who is searching for a great dental care... Best of all they are open on Saturdays which works out perfectly for me, because I work in Austin and am not able to take off during the week.

  • Before I make an appointment, I looked at many positive reviews on this place. On my appointment, I was delighted, because the reviews are true. The place is clean, modern, and with advanced technology. There is also a small play corner for children. The staff are so nice and the doctor is gentle. You can watch tv while they clean your teeth to keep your mind away. From my past experience with other dentist in other states, this one, they treat you nicely and with dignity. They open late, so it is perfect for after work. At the end of my check up, I received oral-b goodies and take home whitening gift as first time patient. I am happy and will comeback for my routine check up. I also refer my whole family to go to this place. Keep up the great work!

  • New to the area and when I needed a wisdom tooth extracted this was at the top of my insurance list. I was surprised with the service and relaxing atmosphere of the waiting area. The staff was able to answer all my questions regarding my treatment plan. I was impressed with the top notch professional care and attention to my needs. I definitely will recommend NEO DENTISTRY to anyone who is looking for a family dental care provider.

  • My husband and I are really impressed with this office. Everyone is so friendly. It is super clean as well. Also, we don't feel judged by the dentist or staff. They were great with my 4 year old.

  • i absolutely loved this place from start to end! I was immediately greeted with a smile and offered refreshments. They had a play place, tablets and tv for my kids who were going to be stuck in my 1hr appt with me. once called back, I again was offered a space for the kids to be while waiting and they were made to feel very comfortable. Cecily did my whitening and fully explained the procedure, and what to expect, and set me up on a tv for a comforting show on netflix while my procedure is being done. It was a great experience, i felt very comfortable and at ease and the place itself was very neatly kept and clean. five stars for all around service!

  • All office staff were very pleasant. The office was aesthetically pleasing and relaxing. Macy, the dental assistant, was thorough, precise with the X-rays and pleasant to speak to. She explained everything she was doing so I felt comfortable. They have amazing technology. Dr. Dholariya actually performed my cleaning. I have not experienced such a gentle, yet thorough cleaning...in fact, I almost fell asleep during the cleaning (no meds administered)! Dr. Dholariya made sure to answer all of my questions and did not make me feel rushed. I encountered Tasha at check-out. She was very kind as well and thorough. I had a partial charge for my X-rays I was not expecting but that was a function of my insurance only paying 80%. I was okay with paying it because they did a 180 degree dental scan as well as photographs inside my mouth and bite wing X-rays. You can see the images on a TV as you relax in the dental chair. I found that quite interesting. I would rather be thoroughly checked out and have that piece of mind than skimp on technology and regret it later. I highly recommend Dr. Dholariya and Kyle Parkway Dentistry.
