Not everyone realizes that health & maintenance of your gums is just as important as your teeth when it comes to oral health. At Creekside Family Dental, we help patients who are suffering from mild to moderate forms of gum disease in order to preserve the health of their gums & teeth & to help their mouth remain pain free.
Gum disease often begins because of improper oral care. In its beginning stages, gum disease may cause your gums to swell, look red & bleed easily while eating or brushing your teeth. Though at the early stages, you may not notice the gum disease or feel any pain, if left unchecked, the health of your gums can drastically decline. During our cleanings & exams, our staff always looks for the first signs of gum disease. If we do detect gum disease, we can help you treat it before it gets worse.
In combination with good oral hygiene, coming in for a dental cleaning twice a year can treat & prevent mild forms of gum disease. In more serious cases of gum disease, plaque & tartar will begin moving below your gum line. For these situations, Creekside Family Dental provides both deep scaling & root planing.
These are nonsurgical procedures that will remove plaque & tartar below your gum line & smooth parts of your tooth where bacteria is accumulating & contributing to your gum disease. After scaling & planing, the health of your gums can return to normal. These are safe, nonsurgical procedures & we are happy to give you more information about them if necessary.
If you are suffering from extreme cases of gum disease & require surgical solutions, our office will refer you to a specialist in Mansfield, TX who can give you high quality care. We can also recommend treatments that will help you to slow the growth of bacteria & treat your oral pain. Whatever the case may be, we will work with you through the process & make sure that you are getting the care you need.
