Treatment for Gum Disease

Gum disease is an oral health condition, which affects even those who brush regularly. While people with poor oral hygiene are more likely to suffer from gum disease, improper brushing and flossing can also cause the condition. There are various other contributing factors than can cause gum disease, such as poor diet or smoking. When it comes to treating gum disease, your dentist will need to know your medical history, dietary habits and whether you smoke or not. It is important to divulge as much information as possible so that periodontal treatment has the greatest chance of success. Thorough cleaning is the first step in combating gum disease, then followed by scaling and root planing. We may also recommend a course of medicinal treatment as aftercare. If the condition persists or worsens, there are also surgical options available which can help address gum disease.

Symptoms and Causes of Gum Disease

Gums bleeding, swelling and becoming raw or painful, are all signs of gum disease. However, you may have gum disease without any obvious symptoms. During your comprehensive dental exam, at Kyle Parkway Dentistry, your dentist will check your gums for discoloration, swelling and other signs of gum disease. Catching the condition early will greatly improve the effectiveness of treatment.

 

Gum Disease Kyle TX

 

Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection, which results in gingivitis. Gingivitis can be treated with proper brushing and flossing in mild cases. However, left unchecked, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis. Both conditions are essentially caused by poor oral hygiene and are exacerbated by smoking and certain dietary habits.

If you have concerns about periodontal (gum) disease, contact Kyle Parkway Dentistry today to schedule a consultation.

  • Let it be known, I HATE going to the dentist, but Kyle Pkwy has my business for life. Very clean!
    The techs are super friendly and Dr D could not have been more caring. I get really anxious at dentist offices, but their setup is great. Plenty of TVs to distract oneself. I cannot recommend this dentist's office enough!

  • I'm welcomed every time I come in the door. Staff is very helpful and eager to satisfy the objective. Dentist and assistant work harmoniously to get the procedure accomplished as efficient and accurate as possible, with minimal discomfort to me. I congratulate the whole team for their work. The facility is wonderful also. Very clean and well thought out. Modern computerized systems. LCD TV's on the ceiling to keep my mind off procedure..... all in all I'm very satisfied...Only down side is limited parking due to neighboring businesses.

    Brittany D.
  • Everyone was very friendly. Dentist explained everything very well and I was relieved that they didn’t recommend things that I really don’t need at this time. Glad I chose them for my new dentist!

    Karen M.
  • My husband really liked the experience there. What I don't like is that they don't offer your treatment plan prices up front. But overall I like the ease of scheduling and being able to complete the paperwork.

    Nicole A.
  • I went in for a basic cleaning and the receptionists at the front desk were very friendly. I didn't have to wait long to be called back for my appointment. The hygienists and the dentist were friendly as well, they took some time before and after looking at my tooth to chat and ask how things are going.

    The exam room had a television on the ceiling. One of the hygienists offered to put on a show from Netflix for me to watch during the exam and cleaning. After the cleaning, the dentist followed up with me on recommendations and took his time to make sure that all of my questions were answered.

    Overall, I was very pleased with my appointment. I have gone to Kyle Parkway Dentistry a few times in the past, and those visits went really well too.
