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.

  • Dr. Dholariya And Cecily are just Excellent. Almost no wait time even though this was a last minute appointment. Friendly bedside manner during the cleaning (which he doesn't hand off to a hygienist/assistant). Explained the issues well and both he and his xray assistant were conscious of insurance covering a full panel. So nice to see they have my back instead of randomly doing treatments outside of what's covered. No surprise bills, yay! 10/10 would go highly recommend them! I have tried others in the area and they don't even compare. Others in this area are not serving the people's best interest where Dr. Dholariya does! Thank you all for treating my husband and I so well!

  • These doctors and staff are always so friendly and provide great care! I've always felt very well taken care of with emphasis placed on health and prevention each visit. They make the experience very easy for kids also. Each time my kids have received cleanings or fillings they make them feel so comfortable and at ease. Their dental savings plan has been a great deal for our family. As a business owner myself, the friendly service and detailed care make it so easy to highly recommend Dr. D and the team!

  • I called and the lady was super friendly and helpful. I was seen the same day and had a plan and appointments for my teeth. Their office is really nice and clean. Friendly staff members too! That’s always nice. They also offer a payment plan for people who can’t pay it all up front. I would recommend Kyle Parkway Dentistry.

  • First of all, being able to be seen on a Saturday, especially with tooth pain is unheard of and I greatly appreciate it.
    Second, the couches were super comfortable and the staff was very sweet and helpful. I came in Friday afternoon and was able to get an appointment the next day.

    I used to go to a different dentist (which I went to for a cleaning 3 weeks ago) and I will never go back. This place is fantastic! The dentist I saw was also very helpful and informative!
