Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that supports your teeth. It is primarily caused by plaque, a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. When plaque is not removed, it will begin to destroy your gums and bone. Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. Luckily, our dentist in Denton is an expert at treating periodontal disease.
Your Family Dentist
We also take many preventative measures to keep it from developing in the first place. Coming in for your bi-yearly hygiene appointments is one of the best ways to prevent gum disease of any sort. Our hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth and remove any disease-causing plaque and tartar that you are unable to remove with your daily brushing and flossing routine. One of the main reasons people develop gum disease is because they do not keep up with their hygiene appointments. If you are coming to see us and be treated for periodontal disease that has already developed, we have many helpful options!
Our dentist will carefully examine your gums and come up with a straightforward recovery plan for you. If your gums are in the early stages of gum disease or gingivitis, the effects are much easier to reverse. Swollen and tender gums generally characterize gingivitis. It does not directly impact the bone attached to your teeth. If you leave gingivitis untreated, that is when it can become periodontal disease. This form of gum disease affects the bone attached to your teeth and the tissue, so it is vital to catch gum disease before it progresses.
