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 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!

  • Absolutely best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist! Everyone was so sweet and genuinely concerned about the wellbeing of my teeth! Paul was the gentlest hygienist I have experienced and I actually look forward to my next visit!!!

  • Very friendly and through. Was able to fill out paperwork online so the day of the appointment I checked in and just waited to be called. I arrived early and was in a room 10 minutes before my scheduled appointment time. Assistants explained each process before starting as well as explaining what they could see. Dr D was friendly, soft spoken and calm. There was a break down of payment for procedures and payment options. Also scheduling follow up appointment was easy. Offices were nice and clean with tv screens on the ceiling so you could watch Netflix while being worked on.

  • We always have a great experience at Kyle Parkway Dentistry. The staff is friendly, prompt, welcoming and knowledgeable.Paul the hygienist, always takes his time cleaning our teeth and is extremely patient with my 2 toddlers. He makes it seem like a breeze. Dr. Dholariya is informative and never rushes. He likes to make sure you understand correct techniques of brushing and also of any procedures he is doing. I have been to many dental places in my life and have never had the great experiences I have at this business.

  • 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).
