Gum Disease Treatment
Improve Your Oral Health With Jacksonville Gum Disease Treatment
Because you can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums, gum disease treatment is one of the most important services offered at All Smiles. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. It’s also shockingly common, with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimating that about half of all adults have some form of it.
Our Jacksonville, TX dentists take gum disease seriously. They check for signs of it during every dental exam. And because every case is a little different, they treat it with a customized soft tissue management plan. Your periodontal treatment will:
- Help prevent tooth loss
- Give you fresher breath
- Improve your smile’s appearance
- Relieve unpleasant symptoms like tender and bleeding gums
- Eliminate the infection that can negatively impact your overall health
To keep your gums in great shape, call 903-730-6374.
Treat Gum Disease With a Deep Cleaning
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that collects on and below your gums and then accumulates in “pockets” that form when gums pull away from teeth. In its earliest stage, called gingivitis, a regular dental cleaning may take care of gum disease. In later stages, you’ll need an ultra-thorough, two-part cleaning calling scaling and root planing. It removes bacteria from both above and below the gumline and helps shrink the problematic pockets.
Seek Help If You Notice Gum Disease Symptoms
Gum disease is most common in adults over age 30. However, it can strike at any age, especially in people who neglect their oral hygiene. Our Jacksonville, TX dentists recommend a dental exam every six months, but you should see us right away if you notice gum disease symptoms like:
- Painfully tender gums
- Bleeding gums
- Visibly receding gums
- Changes in the way your teeth fit together
