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.

  • I have had a great experience with KPD. I had not been to the dentist for several years due to anxiety. Dr. D and Hygienist Paul have been so kind and put me at ease. Also had my wisdom test removed in office, (highly recommend sedation for this ) the procedure was quick and luckily I barely had any pain. I’ve overcome my fear of the dentist :)

  • OK so I am one of those people that gets super nervous for the dentist— especially if I need any treatments done. I cannot say enough how much I would recommend Kyle Parkway Dentistry— I saw Dr. Z and she is AMAZING. And the dental assistant Katherine (I hope I’m spelling her name right! Also, sad she is moving! :( ) was also amazing!! The two of them made me feel instantly more calm and relaxed and made my treatment as comfortable as possible. Dr. Z talked me through everything and made me feel so relaxed. (Not to mention they got everything done pretty darn quick!) I love that she listens to my questions and answers with sympathy, kindness and knowledge— they genuinely wanted me to be as comfortable as possible, and that means everything!!! Also the front desk girls are so sweet and helpful. I recommend and will continue seeing Dr. Z! And definitely won’t be as nervous from now on :). Thank you thank you thank you!!

  • I had another great experience at Kyle Parkway Dentistry. They made me so comfortable. When I showed signs of discomfort. They quickly stopped the procedure, offered options and brought me back to 100% comfort before going on with the process. They were very attentive and noted signs of pain without me having to complain. The patient teaching was detailed yet comprehensible. Thank you so much for making my procedure as pleasant as possible.

  • The dentist was quick, thorough, and to the point. the staff were very friendly. The entertainment was awesome with a tv mounted to the ceiling and everything on Netflix to watch!

    Ricardo P.
  • Great atmosphere. Comfortable environment and friendly personnel.

    Adan T.
  • I would dread going to the dentist before finding this office. For one its embarrassing & secondly its not the cheapest. This office is the ABSOLUTE BEST I have ever been to. Staff are professional & the office has a welcoming feel to it. Other dental offices I have been to wouldn't explain the billing portion & when i would have questions in regards to billing or procedures it would seem as if I was inconveniencing them. The ladies at the front desk helped me find the best plan for me financially. ❤ Wish I found them sooner!!

    Lina K.
  • Best experience at a dentist's office to date! The staff were pleasant and extremely polite. No sales push! The Dr., Dr. D, took his time, made sure that I understood what he was checking and why, and then laid out a treatment plan for me! Did I mention the patient rooms... I almost forgot that I was getting a check up because I was watching NatGeo on the ceiling! Highly recommend! (I had 5:30 appointment time that really fit in to my work schedule).

    Patrick J.
  • I came here for the first time and the experience was amazing! Friendly staff and excellent customer service. I also enjoyed being able to watch television while having my teeth cleaned. I definitely recommend this place!
